INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts were without four offensive starters against the New York Giants Saturday. That didn’t matter because quarterback Andrew Luck was still on the field for the Colts.

Luck led the Colts on scoring drives on three of the four series the first unit was on the field in their 27-26 loss to the Giants. New York trailed 26-0 in the fourth quarter before coming back to win. Punter Pat McAfee missed a 64-yard field goal that would have won the game for the Colts in the final seconds.

Receivers Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton, guard Jack Mewhort and center Khaled Holmes all sat out. All Luck did was go 12-of-18 for 89 yards and a touchdown.
