PHILADELPHIA — The Indianapolis Colts (1-2) fell to the Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) 20-16 today at Lincoln Financial Field. Here's some top highlights from today's game:

FOURTH QUARTER

— Adam Vinatieri makes some history. His third field goal of the day ties Morten Andersen for the most made field goals in NFL history (565), and the Colts lead 16-13 with 14:22 left in the fourth quarter.

— Philadelphia takes 11:18 and 17 plays to get into the end zone on a four-yard touchdown run by Wendell Smallwood and take a 20-16 lead with 3:02 left in the fourth quarter. Four penalties on the Colts on that drive — four.

— On 4th and 3 from the Philadelphia 4-yard line, Andrew Luck is sacked by defensive end Derek Barnett with 1:13 left in the fourth quarter. Turnover on downs, and the Eagles will try to run the rest of this one out.

— FINAL: The Colts fall to 1-2 on the year with a 20-16 loss to the Eagles.

THIRD QUARTER

— The Eagles go three-and-out on their opening possession of the second half. Jabaal Sheard, on a strong bull rush, gets his hand on the Carson Wentz pass attempt on third down to force the punt. Second time Sheard has dominated on a bullrush today.

— Adam Vinatieri's 35-yard field goal ties the game at 10 with 9:41 left in the third quarter. The Colts had a chance at a touchdown on 3rd and 4 from the Philadelphia 17-yard line, but Andrew Luck's pass bounced off the hands of a diving Chester Rogers in the end zone. Big play on the drive was a 4th and 2 toss play to running back Jordan Wilkins that went for five yards. Frank Reich didn't even hesitate about keeping his offense out on the field.

— Anthony Walker steps in front of the Carson Wentz pass for the interception, giving the Colts the ball right back at the Philadelphia 17-yard line. The Colts then take their first lead of the game, 13-10, after a 31-yard field goal for Vinatieri. He's one field goal away from tying Morten Andersen for the most made field goals in NFL history. 8:23 left in the third quarter.

— Injury update: Right tackle Joe Haeg (ankle) is out.

— Colts' defense bends, but doesn't break. Jake Elliott hits the 24-yard field goal to tie the game at 13 with 2:50 left in the third quarter.

— What a play by the Colts' defense. Margus Hunt with the sack, strips the ball and recovers the ball at the Philly 13. Career year for Hunt continues.

— At the end of the third quarter, the Colts and Eagles are tied at 13.

SECOND QUARTER

— Injury update: Joe Haeg goes down for the Colts. Denzelle Good enters the game at right tackle.

—Jake Elliott hits a 33-yard field goal, and the Eagles retake the lead, 10-7, with 3:09 left in the second quarter.

— Injury update: Haeg is back in the game at right tackle for the Colts.

— At halftime, the Eagles lead the Colts, 10-7.

FIRST QUARTER

— Eagles dominate on opening drive, going 79 yards in 12 plays and taking 5:07 off the clock. At the 7:10 mark of the first quarter, it's Eagles 7, Colts 0. The Colts, who received the opening kickoff, faced a 3rd and 1 on their first drive, but a false start penalty knocked them back five yards, and then they couldn't convert on 3rd and 6 to open up with a three-and-out.

— After another three-and-out for the Indy offense, its defense finally shows some life: stuff for a loss of three on the run; Darius Leonard bats down a pass on 2nd and 13. Then Kemoko Turay bursts through for his first-career sack on third down.

Jake Elliott's 55-yard field goal attempt is no good. Eagles remain on top, 7-0, with 2:16 left in the first quarter. Again, though, some life from the Indy defense.

— Andrew Luck to Ryan Grant, five-yard touchdown. What a grab by Grant, who had one-on-one coverage on the left side. The Colts used the playaction to running back Nyheim Hines as a solid decoy. It was a six-play, 55-yard drive (aided by a 33-yard pass interference penalty). Colts, Eagles tied at 7 with 24 seconds left.
