INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Chandler Harnish threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dominique Jones, leading the Colts to a 20-16 victory over Cincinnati in Thursday night's preseason finale.
Neither starting quarterback stuck around long. No. 1 draft pick Andrew Luck left after Indy's first series.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton left with a bruised right arm after just six plays. Coach Marvin Lewis later said Dalton would have returned had it been a regular season game.
That left the heavy-lifting to the backups -- and the officials, who called 24 penalties.
Behind Harnish, the last selection in this year's draft, Indy (2-2) rallied from a 10-0 deficit to take a 14-13 halftime lead.
The Bengals (2-2) regained the lead on a third-quarter field goal, but Harnish threw for the winning score with 6:54 to play.
BEST OF MAXIM

The Indianapolis Colts are ready to start over.
For the first time in 15 years, Peyton Manning isn't around. For the first time in more than a decade, the Colts are not expected to contend for a division title or make the playoffs.
Players understand this is reality for 2012, they just don't believe in using the r-word.

Between video from practice, preseason games, and media conferences, football fans have seen plenty of Andrew Luck over the past month. Fans should continue to see plenty of him during the course of the football season, but one place you won’t see the Colts rookie is in commercials. That’s because Luck made the conscious decision to avoid endorsement deals during his rookie season...
In their final tune up before opening the season in Chicago, the Indianapolis Colts were anything but sharp. To this point, Chuck Pagano's patchwork squad had played with a precision that belied their inexperience. Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, they looked lost.
Andrew Luck's night would be a short one and he would get to work right away after the Colts...

The Colts came back to beat the Bengals in one of the more boring Colts games in recent memory.
Well, Andrew Luck and Drew Stanton didn’t see much time on the field. Both saw a total of 3 series. It was Chandler Harnish who got most of the snaps, and actually didn’t do that bad. His decision making wasn’t great, but he made some great throws and his mobility was pretty good...
A year ago, the Cincinnati Bengals were the odds on favorite to win the Andrew Luck sweepstakes. Their veteran quarterback, Carson Palmer, had sworn never to play for the organization again, leaving the offense to an untested second round pick, Andy Dalton. Their new offensive coordinator, Jay Gruden, had his greates successes in the Arena Football League and was installing a new...
