Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Vick Ballard scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime and the Indianapolis Colts escaped with a 19-13 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at LP Field.

The Colts won the coin toss and began the deciding drive from the 20. They handed the ball to Donald Brown on the first six consecutive plays of the drive and reached the Tennessee 36, where they faced a crucial 3rd-and-8.

On that play, Andrew Luck stepped up into the pocket from the shotgun and hit Reggie Wayne over the middle for 20 yards and a first down at the Titans 16.

After Ballard was stuffed on first down, Luck threw a short screen out to the left for Ballard, who rumbled toward the end zone and dove head-first, extending the ball over the pylon for the touchdown.

The play was reviewed and confirmed, giving the win to the Colts (4-3), who snapped a 10-game road losing streak.

Luck threw for 297 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 26-of-38 passing while Brown ended his day with 80 yards on 14 carries and Ballard ran for 55 yards on 12 carries in the triumph.
