Colts Run Out Of Luck Against Jaguars

September 23, 2012 Updated Sep 23, 2012 at 7:34 PM EDT

INDIANAPOLIS -- Blaine Gabbert saw the play perfectly Sunday in Indianapolis. The hard part was putting the ball in the right spot. Jacksonville's second - year quarterback threw a perfect strike to Cecil Shorts III, who sprinted to the end zone for an 80 - yard score with 45 seconds to go to give the Jags a stunning 22 - 17 victory over the Colts and number one draft pick Andrew Luck.

It was a shocking turnabout for a team that had a franchise - low 117 total yards last week and seemed destined for a third straight loss just seconds earlier when Adam Vinatieri made a 37 - yard field goal to give the Colts a 17 - 16 lead with 56 seconds to go.

Luck threw for 313 yards with two touchdowns and one interception, but he couldn't engineer a final comeback. Both teams are 1 - 2 for the season.
