Knowshon Moreno ran for 40 yards on 15 attempts with a score. Eric Decker was a leading receiver, hauling in eight passes for 150 yards with a score.
The Denver defense gave up 121 yards rushing and 213 passing. They sacked Luck two times.
Colts tight end Coby Fleener was impressive, racking up 38 receiving yards and one touchdown. After Luck, he was the top performer for Indianapolis. Wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey also performed well with 44 receiving yards, 30 rushing and one touchdown.
