The Colts will face their second consecutive AFC West opponent when the San Diego Chargers come to Indianapolis in Week 3. The game time is set for 4:25 p.m. at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The contest will mark the 26th all-time meeting between the teams in the regular season, with the Chargers holding a 16-9 advantage. Indianapolis fell to San Diego, 19-9, in their last matchup on Oct. 14, 2013 at Qualcomm Stadium.

Last week, the Colts traveled to Denver to face the Super Bowl champion Broncos and lost 34-20.

Kicker Adam Vinatieri connected on his fi rst fi eld goal attempt in the first quarter to give the Colts an early 3-0 lead. Vinatieri made his second field goal in the second quarter to increase his consecutive made streak to 29, which is the longest active streak in the NFL and the third-longest in team history.

The Colts faced a 13-6 deficit at halftime but were able to tie the game up after a five-yard rushing touchdown by running back Robert Turbin on the first drive of the third quarter.

Indianapolis and Denver traded scores in the second half. After a Broncos field goal, the Colts possessed the ball with 1:51 left in the game and were down 26-20. On the first play of the series, quarterback Andrew Luck was strip-sacked and Denver returned the fumble for a touchdown to preserve a 34-20 victory.
