Colts vs. Ravens score: Baltimore leads, 10-6, at halftime

Patrick Smith

A late touchdown put the Ravens on top at the half.

The Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts are in a close game, separated by a touchdown in Sunday's Wild Card playoff.

A pair of field goals from Justin Tucker and Adam Vinatieri in the second quarter were the game's only scores until a Vonta Leach touchdown in the second half's final minute helped Baltimore take the lead. The Colts tried to score a late touchdown of their own, but could only answer with a field goal as time expired.

Both teams have struggled with their quarterback play on offense, while the opposing defenses have gotten ample pressure on both quarterbacks. In an attempt to counter Baltimore's blitz packages, the Colts have moved to quicker routes, getting the ball out of Andrew Luck's hand faster. Meanwhile, the Ravens' offensive success is coming from their run game as Bernard Pierce are Ray Rice are combining to average over 5.0 yards per carry.

At the end of the half, Andrew Luck is 13 for 23 for 143 yards, and Joe Flacco is 5 for 12 for 108 yards. The Ravens have sacked Luck four times while the Colts have yet to bring down Flacco, but have put plenty of pressure on the QB.

Combining for over 150 yards on the ground, and playing solid defense, both teams look remarkably similar. The Colts are playing the Ravens' game, and so far, Baltimore is doing it better.
