Andrew Luck leads his side to a thrilling win at home.

Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes and Donald Brown scored the go-ahead touchdown with 8:55 left to lead the Indianapolis Colts past the Seattle Seahawks 34-28 Sunday.
The Seahawks (4-1) lost their first regular-season game since November 25 but they were far from disgraced.
Seattle’s defence started well for their side but with a drastic injuries to their offensive line they needed to be.
Marshawn Lynch looked dangerous early and he earned a dazzling 24 yards with the
first carry of the game.
Steve Hauschka remained perfect on his attempts on the year as he nailed a 42-yard
field goal to give Seattle a 3-0 lead.
Andrew Luck and the Colts looked shaky early as they failed to convert on third downs as the offensive was put
under pressure from their special teams.
Despite missing several Pro-Bowlers the Seattle offensive line created several enticing running lanes for their running backs or Russell Wilson.
Colts no touchdowns in the last seven quarters, but that was over as Wilson found Golden Tate to give their
side a handy 10-point lead.
Amazingly Indianapolis had only allowed 10 point in the past fortnight, but that figure had been matched inside a handful of minutes
as their defence gave up 92 yards to just two.
Seattle extended its advantage when they blocked a punt before scoring a safety, and in spite of a scoring
review, the Seahawks extended its lead to 12.
Delano Howell scored for Indy (4-1) on a 61-yard return of a blocked field goal.
Luck led his ninth career fourth-quarter comeback by going 16-of-29 passing for 229 yards, beating Russell Wilson in the first matchup between last season’s NFL Rookie of the Year runners-up.
Indy trailed 12-0 early, took the lead after Howell’s return and rallied again to take the lead for good on Brown’s fourth-quarter touchdown run.
The Colts sealed the victory with a two-point conversion pass and a late field goal.
Wilson finished 15-of-31 passing for 210 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He also ran 13 times for 102 yards.
The Colts will take on the San Diego Chargers in week six on Monday night football, while the Seahawks will look to regroup when they tackle the Titans at CenturyLink Field.
