INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes and the Colts' defense dominated Cincinnati in Sunday's 27-0 victory.

Luck was 27 of 42 for 344 yards as Indianapolis (5-2) won its fifth straight. It was Indy's first shutout since December 2008.

Cincinnati (3-2-1), which hasn't won since starting 3-0, endured its first shutout since December 2009 and had a franchise record tying 11 punts Sunday. Andy Dalton was 18 of 38 for 126 yards.

Indy churned out 506 yards, struck early and pulled away late.

Bradshaw's 1-yard TD run made it 10-0 in the second quarter and Luck threw two second-half TD passes to make it 24-0.

Colts linebacker Erik Walden was ejected in the first half for making contact with umpire Bruce Stritesky.
