Ryan Nassib led the New York Giants to two touchdowns in the final four minutes, completing a huge fourth-quarter comeback with a 27-26 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night.
New York trailed 26-0 early in the fourth, but the Colts couldn't hold on.
Former Indy quarterback Curtis Painter finally got New York on the board with a 3-yard TD pass to Kellen Davis. Sixteen seconds later, Spencer Adkins recovered a Colts fumble in the end zone to make it 26-14. Michael Cox then scored on a 2-yard run with 3:59 to go, and Nassib hooked up with Corey Washington on a 6-yard TD pass with 55 seconds to go.
Indy (0-2) had a chance to win it with Pat McAfee's 64-yard field goal with 5 seconds left, but the kick went wide left.
Andrew Luck was 12 of 18 for 89 yards. Eli Manning was 1 of 6 for seven yards for New York (3-0).
