Recap

The Indianapolis Colts ran for a season-high 191 yards and Peyton Manning threw three touchdowns in a 31-26 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

The win moved Indianapolis closer to its eighth straight AFC South title. The Colts (9-6) can clinch the division with a win over Tennessee next week.

Jacoby Ford returned the opening kickoff 99 yards and Zach Miller caught a late touchdown pass for the Raiders (7-8), who were denied a shot at their first winning season in eight years.

Indianapolis did most of its damage on the ground. Dominic Rhodes carried 17 times for 98 yards and Joseph Addai, who returned from a shoulder injury, ran for 45 yards and touchdown.

Manning had a pedestrian day, finishing 16 of 30 for a season-low 179 yards and two interceptions. But he got the Colts into the end zone after the running game did the heavy lifting.

Manning, who was without slot receiver Austin Collie (concussion), threw touchdown passes to tight end Jacob Tamme, Pierre Garcon and rookie Blair White.
