Colts, Ravens 0-0 after 1st quarter

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 06, 2013
The Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens were tied 0-0 after the first quarter of their AFC wild-card game. A sloppy first quarter included one turnover by each team, and a tackle for loss by Ravens star linebacker Ray Lewis, which drew a huge ovation. Lewis has announced he will retire when Baltimore's playoff run ends. Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones got the Ravens going with a 34-yard punt runback down the left sideline. A 24-yard pass to Ed Dickson brought Baltimore close, but Ray Rice fumbled at the Colts 11. Indianapolis then put together an impressive drive to the Baltimore 30 before Luck was stripped of the ball by Paul Kruger, the Ravens' leader in sacks. Pernell McPhee recovered, but Joe Flacco nearly threw an interception three plays later and the Ravens had to punt. The visitors were introduced before the game as Chuck Pagano and the Indianapolis Colts, and the former Ravens defensive coordinator received warm applause from the fans. Pagano left before this season for Indianapolis, and missed 12 games while undergoing treatment for leukemia. When a helmetless Lewis emerged from the tunnel during introductions, nearly everyone in M&T Bank Stadium stood and cheered his dance, cameras and cellphones taking photos of Baltimore's most popular player. Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was hospitalized with an undisclosed illness Sunday morning, and was not at the game. The team said he is doing well, and quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen was calling the plays in Arians' absence. Arians went 9-3 while taking over for Pagano. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
