Early turnovers were the story of the first quarter. Both the Ravens and Colts coughed the ball up on back-to-back drives. A five-play, 41-yard series was ended when Ray Rice fumbled. While it appeared Lawrence Guy didn't have complete control of the football, Indianapolis gained possession and were in prime position to get on the scoreboard first. However, their own 52-yard drive was diffused when Andrew Luck was tackled in the backfield by Paul Kruger, resulting in a fumble of his own.
Baltimore is bringing ample pressure in an attempt to derail the Colts' rookie quarterback, but so far, Luck has responded well -- with the exception of the fumble. Luck has been extending the play by moving around the pocket while Ravens' linebacker Ray Lewis, playing in his final game at home, is blitzing a lot and proving to be disruptive early.
