Though two-and-a-half quarters in Indianapolis, the Ravens and Colts have combined for just one touchdown.

And it was Indianapolis’ defense that set up the lone TD of the game.

Colts cornerback Vontae Davis ended the Ravens’ first drive of the second half by picking quarterback Joe Flacco, and the 29-yard return put Indianapolis at the Baltimore 32. Seven plays later, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck hit tight end Dwayne Allen for a seven-yard score, putting Indianapolis up 13-3.

The Colts’ defense has stood out on third down, limiting Baltimore to just 1-of-6 successful conversions. And Indianapolis sacked Flacco on a 4th-and-1 play at the Colts three-yard line in the second quarter.
