The Indianapolis Colts will host the Baltimore Ravens in their first home preseason game of the year. The contest will mark the fi rst time that the two franchises have faced each other in preseason play.
Last week, Indianapolis traveled to Buffalo and defeated the Bills, 19-18. The victory marked the Colts fi rst win in a preseason opener since 2012 and only the second dating back to 2004.
Quarterback Scott Tolzien started and played the entire fi rst half. He completed 12-of-23 passes for 140 yards and one touchdown in his Colts debut.
Indianapolis trailed 9-0 late in the second quarter when Tolzien completed a 42-yard touchdown pass to running back Jordan Todman. Kicker Adam Vinatieri connected on a 24-yard fi eld goal at the end of the first half to tie the game, 9-9.
The Bills took a 12-9 lead in the third quarter before Colts quarterback Stephen Morris threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Chester Rogers.
After another Vinatieri fi eld goal gave Indianapolis a 19-12 lead, Buffalo scored at the end of regulation to cut the defi cit to 19-18. The Bills attempted a game-winning two-point conversion but the Colts defense foiled the attempt to win the game.
