INDIANAPOLIS — Minnesota gave Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts too many chances Sunday.

Eventually, the No. 1 draft pick made the Vikings pay.

Indy’s new quarterback threw two touchdown passes, moved the Colts 45 yards in 23 seconds on their final drive and even got the Vikings to jump offside with 13 seconds left in the game to set up a 53-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri for a 23-20 victory — Luck’s first career win.

“To get a win, was something I really wanted for this team,” he said after making his home debut. “For me personally, I didn’t want it looming over us for the next game.”
