Colts come from behind to beat Bengals 20-16

INDIANAPOLIS — Chandler Harnish threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dominique Jones, leading the Colts to a 20-16 victory over Cincinnati in Thursday night's preseason finale.

Neither starting quarterback stuck around long. No. 1 draft pick Andrew Luck left after Indy's first series.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton left with a bruised right arm after just six plays. Coach Marvin Lewis later said Dalton would have returned had it been a regular season game.

That left the heavy-lifting to the backups — and the officials, who called 24 penalties.

Behind Harnish, the last selection in this year's draft, Indy (2-2) rallied from a 10-0 deficit to take a 14-13 halftime lead.

The Bengals (2-2) regained the lead on a third-quarter field goal, but Harnish threw for the winning score with 6:54 to play.
