The visiting Oakland Raiders scored on consecutive offensive plays in the first quarter to build an early lead, and defensive back Erik Harris thwarted a late Indianapolis rally with a 30-yard interception return for a touchdown in a 31-24 victory over the Colts on Sunday afternoon.

Playing for the second time in a six-week stretch without a home game, the Raiders (2-2) got two touchdown passes from Derek Carr.

Jacoby Brissett passed for 265 yards and three touchdowns, including a 48-yard connection with tight end Eric Ebron with 1:10 remaining, but it wasn't enough as the Colts (2-2) had their two-game winning streak ended.

Harris' score came after Indianapolis had rallied within 24-17 with 5:27 to play on a 4-yard pass from Brissett to Chester Rogers.

After a Raiders punt, the Colts managed one first down before Harris stepped in front of a Brissett pass along the left sideline and easily galloped 30 yards with just 2:09 to go.

The Raiders built their early lead on the strength of two touchdowns in a 66-second span.

Carr capped a 10-play, 75-yard, game-opening drive with an 18-yard connection with backup tight end Foster Moreau.

Then, after a Colts punt, Trevor Davis took a handoff on an end-around and scampered 60 yards for a second score, stunningly putting Oakland up 14-0 just 6:57 into the game.

The Raiders led 21-10 at halftime, with Carr's second TD pass -- a 19-yarder to Tyrell Williams -- offsetting a 5-yard Brissett connection with tight end Jack Doyle.

Carr completed 21 of 31 passes for 189 yards as the Raiders snapped a two-game losing streak despite losing linebacker Vontaze Burfict to an ejection in the first half that resulted from a helmet-to-helmet hit.

The Raiders outgained the Colts 377-346, including 188-81 on the ground.

Oakland's Josh Jacobs was the game's leading rusher with 79 yards on 17 carries, while the Colts' Zach Pascal led all receivers with 72 yards on four catches.
