INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes and Donald Brown scored the go-ahead TD with 8:55 to go to lead the Indianapolis Colts past the Seattle Seahawks 34-28 yesterday. The Seahawks lost their first regular-season game since Nov. 25 and fell to 4-1. Delano Howell scored on a 61-yard return of a blocked field goal for Indy, which improved to 4-1. Luck led his ninth career fourth-quarter comeback by going 16 of 29 for 229 yards, beating Russell Wilson in the first matchup between last season’s NFL rookie of the year runner-ups.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Tight end Colt Lyerla is leaving No. 2 Oregon because of personal reasons. Lyerla did not travel with the Ducks to their game at Colorado on Saturday. Coach Mark Helfrich said after the 57-16 victory that the junior was suspended for a game for violating team rules. Lyerla also missed Oregon’s 59-14 victory over Tennessee this season because of illness.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – Camilo Sanvezzo scored twice in a span of two minutes with his second goal on a sideways bicycle kick in the 78th minute giving the Vancouver Whitecaps a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers last night. The Whitecaps kept their flickering playoff hopes alive by moving within three points of the fifth-place Los Angeles Galaxy in the Western Conference. Portland missed a chance to move into second in the West despite extending its unbeaten streak to five.
