Luck's TD pass gives Colts dramatic win over Lions

DETROIT -- Andrew Luck threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Donnie Avery with no time left, lifting the Indianapolis Colts to a dramatic 35-33 comeback win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

With the final seconds ticking away, the rookie quarterback moved up in the pocket, flipped a short pass to Avery, and the receiver ran untouched into the end zone to complete a rally that started with Lions up 12 points midway through the fourth quarter.

Luck finished the game with four touchdown passes.

The Colts (8-4) stayed in control of the AFC wild-card race with the win. The Lions (4-8) lost for the fourth consecutive time, including three in a row at home after leading in the final quarter.
