The Colts turned to kicker Matt Gay often on Sunday afternoon and he came through for them every time.
Gay made five field goals overall and four of them were from longer than 50 yards, including a 53-yarder with 1:09 left in overtime to lift the Colts to a 22-19 road win over the Ravens. It’s the second straight win for the Colts, who played without quarterback Anthony Richardson and center Ryan Kelly on Sunday because of concussions.
Gay’s fourth field goal tied the game with 57 seconds left in regulation and the Ravens were able to move into position for a 61-yard Justin Tucker field goal try in the final seconds. Tucker’s kick fell short, though, and the teams traded multiple possessions in overtime. The Ravens passed on another long field goal try and punted after moving into Colts territory on their first drive and then went for it from the Colts’ 47-yard-line on their second.
Lamar Jackson’s pass to wide receiver Zay Flowers fell incomplete and there was no flag thrown despite Colts linebacker E.J. Speed making contact with Flowers before the ball arrived. There also appeared to be a missed facemask call on a tackle of Flowers earlier in the game.
Jackson ran for 101 yards and two touchdowns while also completing 22-of-31 passes for 202 yards. He also lost a fumble in the first half and running back Kenyan Drake lost another one after moving into scoring range on a pass from Jackson earlier in the game.
The Colts did not have any turnovers and got 122 yards on 30 carries from Zack Moss. Moss also caught a touchdown from quarterback Gardner Minshew, who went 27-of-44 for 227 yards in in place of Richardson.
If the first-round pick is cleared this week, he’ll try to extend the Colts’ winning streak to three games in a home matchup with the Rams. The Ravens will also be trying to get healthy as they were missing seven regulars due to injuries this week and they lost running back Gus Edwards to a concussion evaluation during Sunday’s game. They will face the 2-1 Browns on the road next weekend.
Sixty minutes aren’t enough for the Ravens and Colts.
The two teams are headed to overtime in Indianapolis. The Colts tied the game 19-19 on a Matt Gay field goal with 57 seconds left to play in the game.
The Ravens were able to drive the ball to midfield, but Lamar Jackson was sacked with 18 seconds left to play and was nearly intercepted one play later. That left the offense with one last chance to move into field goal range for Justin Tucker and Jackson hit Nelson Agholor to set up a 61-yard attempt.
Tucker’s won a lot of games with his foot, but this kick fell short and the two teams are heading to overtime.
The Ravens have moved back into the lead against the Colts.
Lamar Jackson ran 10 yards for his second touchdown of the game and Justin Tucker’s extra point pushed the Ravens into a 14-13 lead. The touchdown came with 13 seconds to play in the third quarter so the Colts will have to try to move back in front in the fourth quarter.
Jackson has 10 carries for 49 yards overall, but he lost a fumble that helped put the Colts up in the first half. He’s also 14-of-16 for 133 yards through the air.
The Colts stretched their lead to six points with a 54-yard Matt Gay field goal on their first possession of the second half. The second one ended in a punt after Ravens safety Kyle Hamilton touched off a run of incompletions by batting a ball down at the line of scrimmage. Hamilton had three sacks in the first half, so he’s been a frequent thorn in Indy’s side this afternoon.
The Ravens jumped out to an early lead over the Colts on Sunday, but problems holding onto the ball have helped the Colts head into halftime with a lead.
Running back Kenyan Drake and quarterback Lamar Jackson lost fumbles in the first half and the Colts were able to move ahead 10-7 before the break. Jackson also recovered two other Ravens fumbles, including one on a bad snap on third down late in the third quarter.
The Colts took over near midfield after the ensuing punt, but safety Kyle Hamilton was able to get the Ravens the ball back with his third sack of the game. All three of Hamilton’s sacks have come on third down, so he has helped limit the damage that the Colts have been able to do off of Baltimore’s miscues.
Gardner Minshew is 14-of-20 for 103 yards and he hit running back Zack Moss for a 17-yard touchdown to tie the game in the second quarter. Moss has also run 15 times for 70 yards, so he’s been effective in both phases of the game through the first half.
Jackson is 7-of-7 for 89 yards and he ran for the Ravens’ only touchdown of the afternoon. The team only picked up four yards in the second quarter, though, and they’ll need to improve that if they want to remain unbeaten.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had a strong second half in Week Two and he’s picked up right were he left off.
Jackson capped the first Ravens possession of Sunday’s game against the Colts with an eight-yard touchdown run. The score put the Ravens up 7-0 with 6:35 to play in the first quarter.
Jackson played a big hand in moving the Ravens down the field. He had three other carries for 18 yards and he hit on all five of his pass attempts.
Those passes netted 45 yards for the Ravens and the biggest of them was a 20-yarder to tight end Isaiah Likely a couple of plays ahead of the touchdown.
