The Colts were heavily favored against Oakland but ended up having to squeak past a young Raiders team. Led by quarterback Terrelle Pryor the Raiders were able to fight until the very end against the much more talented Indianapolis Colts. The game came down to the very last drive when Pryor was picked off by safety Antoine Bethea to seal the win for Indianapolis. The Colts were led by Andrew Luck who threw for a total of 178 yards on 18/23 passes. He completed two touchdown passes as well in the effort. As we have discussed previous here on Naptown’s Finest the second-year QB was highly criticized for his turnovers last season. One very positive sign for the Colts was that the interception and overall turnover total for Luck was zero. Ahmad Bradshaw made his Colts debut this afternoon rushing for 26 yards on seven carries. Vick Ballard was the workhorse in the rushing attack for the Colts with 63 yards on 13 carries and Andrew Luck chipped in 38 rushing yards and a touchdown to round out the ground game for Indianapolis. Reggie Wayne led all Colts receivers with 96 yards on eight catches while Heyward-Bey and Hilton chipped in with 33 and 20 yards respectively. Dwayne Allen and Reggie Wayne both caught touchdown passes but Allen went down with a hip injury and did not return for the Colts. Terrelle Pryor made the start at quarterback for the Raiders and played a very impressive game. Despite throwing two interceptions he was able to accumulate 217 yards through the air and 112 rushing yards as well. He was the main threat to the Colts defense each and every possession and really kept the Raiders offense looking alive and in the game. There’s no doubt that Oakland has a bright future with Pryor assuming he continues working hard on his arm.
