CLEVELAND (AP) — Andrew Luck threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton with 32 seconds left, rallying Indianapolis to a 25-24 win on Sunday over the Browns.
Cleveland contained the Colts quarterback until the final minute, but couldn’t finish him off.
Before Luck connected with Hilton, Colts running back Daniel Herron picked up 2 yards on fourth down to keep the drive alive. Luck, who threw two interceptions and spent the day being harassed by an energized Browns defense, then fired his second TD pass to Hilton.
The Colts (9-4) trailed 21-7 in the third quarter, but stormed back behind Luck, who finished 24 of 53 for 294 yards.
The Browns (7-6) got two defensive touchdowns, but Cleveland’s offense, led by struggling quarterback Brian Hoyer, couldn’t do enough to keep the team’s playoff hopes from fading.
