Lions have no luck against Colts

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (AP) -

Andrew Luck threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Donnie Avery with no time left to lift the Indianapolis Colts to a dramatic 35-33 comeback win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

With the final seconds ticking away, the rookie quarterback moved up in the pocket, flipped a short pass to Avery, and the receiver ran untouched into the end zone to complete a rally that started with Lions up 12 points midway through the fourth quarter.

The Colts (8-4) stayed in control of the AFC wild-card race with the win.

Detroit (4-8) lost for the fourth straight time, including three in a row at home after leading in the final quarter.
