|Colts Advance to AFC Title Game, Beat Ravens
|INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Peyton Manning threw for two touchdowns in his first action since winning an unprecedented fourth NFL MVP award, leading the Indianapolis Colts into the AFC championship game with a 20-3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night.
The Colts (15-2), who had the league's best record, will host San Diego or the New York Jets next Sunday for a spot in the Super Bowl.
Manning hit rookie Austin Collie for 10 yards and old standby Reggie Wayne for 3 in the second quarter, accounting for Indianapolis' two touchdowns. Indy's defense held Baltimore (10-8), which had 234 yards rushing in a wild-card win at New England, to 87 on the ground.
