INDIANAPOLIS - Andrew Luck became the first Colts quarterback to run for two touchdowns in a game since 1988 to pace Indianapolis' win over Cleveland.

Brandon Weeden threw for 247 yards and two scores, but Trent Richardson, who tried to play through a rib cartilage injury, sat out the second half after running eight times for 8 yards in the first half.
