It also kept Lions coach Jim Caldwell from having to burn a timeout on defense. "Half the time we either have no timeouts, or one timeout". So the way it ended up that was real valuable to us, but it doesn't always play out exactly like you'd like it. Hilton. And then on the next play, officials called for a review of a catch by Donte Moncrief, again saving a little bit of time.
Luck refused to second-guess his coach.
"If you're playing Monday morning quarterback and go, 'Why didn't they just run the clock out and score with three seconds left or two seconds left?' In football, I've found that you need to score first", Luck said. But he hasn't worked a game at Lucas Oil Stadium, and the usually low-key Caldwell acknowledged this time will be different.
Another clock-management issue arose on the kickoff after the go-ahead touchdown.
Prater missed an extra point wide right with 4:04 left in the season opener, a miscue that almost cost the Lions.
Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 59 yards, but the Colts extended their streak of consecutive games without a 100-yard rusher to 51.
Winston began his second year as a pro by going 23 of 33 for 281 yards, using just about every weapon at his disposal in the matchup between NFC South rivals.

Lord Kinnock: Labour won't win a general election again in my lifetime
Mr Smith told Sky News's Murnaghan programme: "It's presented as apparently being a conciliatory gesture by Jeremy". But Mr Balls insisted the responsibility for Labour's fortunes lay in the hands of Mr Corbyn.
Tight end Eric Ebron was confident Prater would not miss a second crucial kick. Social media erupted over Pagano's decision to call a timeout when the Colts faced 2nd-and-10 at the Lions' 12-yard line with 1:15 left. Given the Lions' history, it was hard not to wonder if past year was repeating itself, especially when the Colts rolled to a touchdown with relative ease on their first possession of the second half, converting a two-point conversion in the process. Taking the lead with 37 seconds remaining should be enough to lock down a victory.
The Lions piled up 448 total yards.
Colts safety Mike Adams said Indianapolis has only itself to blame for the loss.
The Lions scored on two of their first three drives, with Theo Riddick scoring a recieving touchdown and Dwayne Washington scoring on a one yard rush. An 11-yard Ameer Abdullah touchdown reception gave the Lions a ten-point lead in the third quarter, but the Colts scored ten unanswered points on a 40-yard Vinatieri field goal and 16-yard Jack Doyle touchdown reception to tie the game at 28 with 8:19 left in the fourth.
The NFL co-leader in receptions by a running back a year ago, Riddick finished with 45 yards rushing on seven carries and caught five passes for 63 yards. As for the Colts defense, there might not be an easy fix on the horizon. The first offensive drive was derailed by a sack, and that was followed by a pair of three-and-outs. Stafford then finally went outside the numbers as free-agent acquisition Marvin Jones turned around Antonio Cromartie in coverage like a top before hauling in a 22-yard gain.
Slow starts are nothing new for the Colts. "That's a quality Detroit Lions team that deserved to win today". I don't want to take any credit away from them by any means, but we know at home, we have to start faster to give ourselves a chance to win. It feels like they don't understand what makes for a good game plan and are more interested in "winning their way" as opposed to just winning.
