Luck throws 2 TDs as Colts rebound vs. Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Andrew Luck threw for 107 yards and two touchdowns, and the Indianapolis Colts responded to criticism by owner Jim Irsay with a 20-12 preseason victory over the New York Giants on Sunday night.

Irsay had used Twitter to apologize to fans for the Colts' abysmal showing in a 44-20 loss to Buffalo last week, and the Colts (1-1) improved markedly, with some help from the bungling and suddenly injury-concerned Giants (1-1).

New York wide receiver Victor Cruz (bruised heel) and starting center David Baas (sprained knee) left the game and the Giants did little on offense.

Not seeing much pressure, Luck threw touchdown passes of 28 yards to Reggie Wayne and 18 yards to T.Y. Hilton in leading the Colts to 17 points. Adam Vinatieri added a 52-yard field goal as Indianapolis scored on three consecutive series.

Backup kicker Brandon McManus added a 50-yard field goal in the second half.
