Manning shines as Colts blast Lions

Aug 26, 2007 - 2:32 AM INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indianapolis Colts had their usual suspects on display.

Peyton Manning threw three first-half touchdown passes as the defending Super Bowl champion Colts rolled to a 37-10 preseason victory over the Detroit Lions on Saturday night.

Manning completed 23-of-27 passes for 233 yards, including a 13-yard score to favorite target Marvin Harrison with just 13 seconds left in the first quarter for a 7-0 edge.

After Detroit was called for pass interference on third down, Manning finished off a stellar 14-play drive with a 7-yard TD toss to Dallas Clark to make it 14-3.

The Colts pushed their lead to 21-3 following another Lions mistake, as Manning and Reggie Wayne hooked up for a 1-yard touchdown in the left corner of the end zone with one second remaining before intermission.

Wayne had six catches for 70 yards and Clark also hauled in six for 47 yards as the Colts (1-2) pick up their first win of the preseason.

An interception by Matt Giordano helped set up the final score of the half for Indianapolis, which watched Pro Bowl defensive end Dwight Freeney leave for the locker room with a sore quad.

With Lions (2-1) starting quarterback Jon Kitna sidelined due to back spasms, backup J.T. O'Sullivan went 24-of-34 for 232 yards with one TD and two interceptions. He was forced to play the majority of the gae as third-string QB Dan Orlovsky also sat with a turf toe injury.

The lack of production at quarterback saw Detroit's 1-2 punch of Roy Williams and No. 2 overall pick Calvin Johnson combine for 64 yards on six catches.

Projected as the starting running back, Detroit's Tatum Bell carried three times for 12 yards before exiting with a right shin injury in the first quarter.

Lions kicker Jason Hanson connected on a 51-yard field goal in the second quarter.
