Manning certainly illustrated the point.
He led the Colts on a 52-yard drive just before halftime, finding Harrison on a 5-yard TD pass and took Indy 80 yards to open the second half, capping the drive with Rhodes' 1-yard TD run to make it 31-0 with 9:25 left in the third quarter.
Flacco was 28-for-38 with 241 yards, most coming after the game was already out of reach, and Baltimore's trademark ground game was never a factor after falling into the deep, early hole.
"We got what we deserved," first-year coach John Harbaugh said. "That's what happens when we play the way we did."
Notes: Harrison's two TD receptions gave him 126 in his career, moving him past Walter Payton and into 10th on the league's career list. ... The Ravens have lost six straight to the Colts, who called Baltimore home for more than three decades before moving to Indy. ... Running back Willis McGahee and guard Marshal Yanda both left the game in the fourth quarter, but Harbaugh had no update on their condition. ... Indy won in its third regular-season home game at Lucas Oil Stadium, with the sun shining down on the field for the first time ever. It also took the Colts three tries to win their first game at the RCA Dome.
