DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET/AP) - A touchdown on the final play by the Indianapolis Colts delivered the Detroit Lions a heartbreaking 35-33 loss on Sunday.

As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – the Colts’ Andrew Luck connected with Donnie Avery on a 14 yard pass on the final play of the game to give Indianapolis the win.

With the final seconds ticking away, the rookie quarterback moved up in the pocket, flipped a short pass to Avery, and the receiver ran untouched into the end zone to complete a rally that started with Lions up 12 points midway through the fourth quarter.

The Colts (8-4) stayed in control of the AFC wild-card race with the win. Detroit (5-8) lost for the fourth straight time, including three in a row at home after leading in the final quarter.
