INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21 Alive) - The New York Giants ran up 28 fourth quarter points on Colts reserves Saturday night and pulled out a 27-26 NFL preseason win.

The Colts had built a 23-0 lead after three quarters, as Andrew Luck and Matt Hasselbeck each threw a first half touchdown pass.

Norwell alum Chandler Harnish played the entire second half, going 11 for 23 in the air for 115 yards and running for 29 more yards, but he was constantly running for his life and was sacked three times.
