INDIANAPOLIS - Andrew Luck threw for 376 yards and one touchdown, Daniel "Boom" Herron ran for another score and Indianapolis dominated the second half to beat Cincinnati 26-10 in the AFC wild-card round Sunday.

The Colts (12-5) head to Denver (12-4) next week Sunday; Luck is 0-2 in the postseason on the road.

For Cincinnati (10-6-1), the postseason misery continued: It became the first team in NFL history to lose four consecutive opening-round playoff games. Andy Dalton finished went 18 of 35 for 151 yards and lost a fumble as he fell to 0-4 in the playoffs.

Indy led 13-10 at halftime, but Luck changed the game by floating a perfect 36-yard TD pass to Donte Moncrief as Luck was falling down in the third quarter. That made it 20-10.

Adam Vinatieri sealed the win with the final two of his four field goals.
