Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Adam Vinatieri booted a game-winning, 53-
yard field goal with eight seconds left as the Indianapolis Colts edged the
Minnesota Vikings, 23-20, on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
After allowing the game-tying touchdown with under a minute to play, the Colts
got the ball back at their own 20 with 31 seconds remaining.
On the first play of the drive, Andrew Luck connected with Donnie Avery for
20 yards up to the 40-yard line. Luck then hit Reggie Wayne for 20 more yards
to bring the ball to the Minnesota 40.
An offside call on the defense put the ball at the 35 and Vinatieri knocked it
through the uprights with ease to give Luck his first NFL win.
The Stanford product finished with 224 yards and two scores on 20-of-31
passing for the Colts (1-1), who did not win for the first time last season
until Week 15.
