The Indianapolis Colts will complete its road preseason slate with a contest against the Washington Redskins. The Colts lead the all-time preseason series by a 15-12-1 record and will make their first trip to FedEx-Field since a 2010 regular season meeting against the Redskins.
Indianapolis fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers by a 26-24 margin in a Week 2 preseason contest. After trailing 14-0, the Colts rallied to tie the score at 14 apiece on one-yard touchdown runs from Donald Brown and Andrew Luck. Luck led the offense under center for the first half of play and finished the game having completed 16-of-25 passes for 175 yards and two interceptions. After generating two 10-play, 80-yard scoring drives, Luck drove the team 31 yards in the final 42 seconds of the second quarter to set up Adam Vinatieri's 53-yard field goal. The field goal gave the Colts a 17-14 halftime advantage. Wide receiver Reggie Wayne led the team in receiving with six receptions for 74 yards while contributing with long catches of 27 and 18 yards. Defensively, Jerry Hughes tied for the team lead with seven tackles and added one sack, his third of the preseason.
