Colts right ship in 31-3 blowout of Ravens

Posted by Mike Mardis - email

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts have a message for the rest of the NFL.

They're back.

Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes to Marvin Harrison, a third to Reggie Wayne, and the Colts sputtering offense finally got itself righted Sunday, routing the Baltimore Ravens' top-ranked defense 31-3.

It was never even close.

The Colts (3-2) played with the precision, efficiency and passion coach Tony Dungy had been seeking, and they delivered their best overall performance in months.

Harrison caught two TD passes in a game for the first time since Dec. 24, 2006, and the threat of a running game that had been grounded for the first four weeks helped open up the downfield routes for Manning. Indy did that even after losing Pro Bowl running back Joseph Addai (hamstring) in the first quarter and third-string running back Mike Hart (knee) in the second quarter.
