EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.
Rookie backup kicker Andrew Furney booted a 51-yard field goal with 1 minute, 8 seconds remaining to lift the New York Jets past the Indianapolis Colts 13-10 on Thursday night in the preseason-opener for both teams.
Colts starting quarterback Andrew Luck played just one series, completing 4 of 5 passes for 53 yards and leading the team to a field goal.
The Colts, who already have been hit hard by injuries, lost more players in Thursday’s game, including on the offensive line, an area the team hopes to improve this season.
