Terrell Suggs had three sacks and forced three fumbles as part of an overwhelming defensive performance by the Baltimore Ravens, who kept the Indianapolis Colts winless with a 24-10 victory Sunday.
Baltimore (10-3) limited the Colts (0-13) to 154 yards, including just 53 through three quarters. Were it not for a touchdown on the game's final play, Indianapolis would have been held without a TD for the second time since the 2003 season opener.
Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes and Ray Rice ran for 103 yards to help the Ravens win their fourth straight and improve to 7-0 at home.
Dan Orlovsky, the third Colts quarterback to start in place of the injured Peyton Manning this season, went 16 for 36 for 136 yards and an interception. He was sacked four times.
The Colts remain without quarterback Peyton Manning, who is on the roster but has not played this season because of a neck injury.
Indianapolis also placed linebackers Kevin Bentley, Mike Holmes and A.J. Edds (ankle) on the inactive list, along with wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez (groin), defensive back Mike Holmes, tackle Quinn Ojinnaka and defensive end Jerry Hughes.
Middle linebacker Ray Lewis is inactive for the Baltimore Ravens for Sunday's game against Indianapolis, the fourth straight game he will miss with a right toe injury.
Lewis played in 57 successive games before sitting out Nov. 20 against Cincinnati. He remains Baltimore's leading tackler.
Baltimore's other inactives Sunday are wide receivers Tandon Doss and LaQuan Williams, cornerback Chris Car, linebacker Chavis Williams and nose tackle Brandon McKinney.
