Andrew Luck passed for 354 yards and four touchdowns, and the Indianapolis Colts routed the New York Giants, 40-24, in East Rutherford, N.J. on Monday night. The decisive victory gave Indianapolis (6-3) a two-game lead over Houston in the AFC South.

The Colts led 16-3 at halftime thanks to three Adam Vinatieri field goals and Luck’s 32-yard touchdown pass to Coby Fleener. Luck added three more scoring passes in the third quarter, and Indy stretched its lead to 40-10 early in the fourth quarter.

The game was well out of reach when Eli Manning connected for two late TD passes for New York (3-5). The biggest highlight of the night for the Giants came at halftime when the team’s former defensive end Michael Strahan was presented with his Pro Football Hall of Fame ring. He was joined on stage by other franchise greats Frank Gifford, Harry Carson and Lawrence Taylor.

The stirring ceremony didn’t help the New York defense, which allowed 443 total yards on its way to losing its third game in a row.

Manning finished with 359 yards passing. Rookie Odell Beckham Jr. caught eight passes for 156 yards for the Giants.
