Jets try to emerge from an 18-point deficit against ColtsThe Colts scored on two consecutive drives in the third quarter to earn a 42-10 edge. Wentz threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Danny Pinter for the first score. Taylor gave the Colts their biggest lead with a 78-yard touchdown run 52 seconds later. Johnson responded with a 19-yard touchdown toss to Moore with three minutes left in the quarter. He threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Griffin about four minutes into the fourth quarter. Colts kicker Michael Badgley made a 39-yard kick on the resulting possession. The Jets followed with a 13-play, 80-yard touchdown drive. Johnson threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Ty Johnson to end that possession and cut the Colts lead to 15. The Colts punted on the next possession. Johnson followed with another long Jets drive, but threw an interception to Colts linebacker Bobby Okereke with 45 seconds remaining, ending the rally. Wentz completed 22 of 30 passes for 272 yards in the victory. White completed 7 of 11 passes for 95 yards and a score before his injury exit. Colts defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth totaled two sacks. “They just executed better than we did,” Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley said. “They got the blocks that they needed, they got the gaps that they needed, their running backs ran hard and they kept running hard. “Unfortunately, those types of things happen. We pride ourselves in stopping the run game. We knew going into this game, if we didn’t stop the run game, it was going to be a night like we had.” The Colts (4-5) host the Jacksonville Jaguars at 1 p.m. EST Nov. 14 at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Jets (2-6) battle the Buffalo Bills (5-2) at 1 p.m. EST Nov. 14 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Reporting by Alex Butler
