FOURTH QUARTER

— Marlon Mack with the four-yard touchdown run, and he’s now at 101 yards on the day. He's the first Colts player to get 100 yards rushing in back-to-back weeks since Joseph Addai in 2007. Colts, Raiders tied at 28 with 10:47 left in the 4Q.

— Jack Doyle 10-yard touchdown reception. Colts lead, 35-28 with 5:28 left in the 4Q. Four receptions for Doyle on that 57-yard drive for Indy: first down, first down, first down, touchdown. Welcome back, 84.

— DARIUS LEONARD. The 2018 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year forces the fumble and gives the Colts the big play they needed on defense to possibly seal this one. 5:16 left, Colts lead 35-28.

— Marlon Mack with the one-yard touchdown run. Colts now up 42-28. Mack's day: 24 rushing attempts for 129 yards (5.4 avg.) and two touchdowns.

— FINAL: Colts 42, Raiders 28. Indy with back-to-back wins and moves to 3-5 heading into the bye week.

THIRD QUARTER

— Derek Carr gets 1-yard touchdown run, and Raiders lead it 21-13 with 9:47 left in the third quarter. Raiders gash the Colts on the ground in their first drive of the second half, getting 29-yard carry from Doug Martin, 13-yard run from Jalen Richard.

— Andrew Luck lofts a beautifully-placed 20-yard touchdown pass to TE Eric Ebron, chose career year continues. Seventh receiving touchdown for Ebron this season. Luck to Chester Rogers for the two-point conversion, and we’re tied at 21 with 7:39 left in the third quarter. Colts use a big 49-yard run by Marlon Mack to cover 75 yards in just four plays.

— Injury update: safety Mike Mitchell (calf) is questionable to return.

— Colts’ pass rush can’t get home, and Carr escapes to find Brandon LaFell for a six-yard touchdown pass. Margus Hunt had Carr in his grasp but couldn't hold on. Oakland takes 28-21 lead with 1:01 left in the third quarter.

— At the end of the third quarter, the Raiders lead the Colts, 28-21.

SECOND QUARTER

— Injury update: center Ryan Kelly (hand) is questionable to return.

— Raiders punch back. Derek Carr finds wide receiver Seth Roberts wide open over the top for a 31-yard touchdown pass, and Oakland cuts the Indy lead to 10-7 with 11:56 left in the second quarter. Raiders needed just six plays and 3:04 to go 70 yards and get into the end zone.

— Injury update: Kelly has returned to the game.

— Raiders get to the end zone on consecutive drives, as Carr finds tight end Jared Cook for a 25-yard touchdown, and giving Oakland a 14-10 lead with 6:13 left in the second quarter. Darius Leonard was coming on the blitz, and fellow linebacker Anthony Walker bit on the play and lost Cook in coverage. The Indy defense has been struggling both to generate any sort of pass rush, as well as with its discipline, leading to multiple penalties the last couple drives.

— History. Adam Vinatieri connects on a 25-yard field goal, and now stands alone atop the NFL's all-time scoring list. What an accomplishment. His kick cuts the Raiders' lead to 14-13 at halftime.

FIRST QUARTER

— Wow. Mo Alie-Cox introduces himself to the National Football League in style, leaping and making an insane one-handed 26-yard touchdown grab — his first-career score — on the Colts' opening drive of the ballgame. Indy would convert three times on third down on that drive, and go 75 yards in 11 plays and take more than six minutes off the clock, and lead 7-0 with 8:27 left in the first quarter.
