Sept. 23, 2012 at 5:30 PM

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Blaine Gabbert connected with Cecil Shorts on a game-winning, 80-yard touchdown pass Sunday, boosting the Jacksonville Jaguars to a 22-17 win over Indianapolis.

The Colts had just taken a lead on Adam Vinatieri's 37-yard field goal with 56 seconds left, but the Jaguars (1-2) came right back.

On the decisive play, Gabbert hit Shorts with a pass, and he ran past the Colts defense into the end zone for a touchdown, followed by an unsuccessful 2-point conversion attempt with 45 seconds remaining.

The Colts (1-2) then staged a last-chance drive, and Andrew Luck got Indianapolis to the Jacksonville 26 with a 36-yard strike to T.Y. Hilton.

But on the last play of game his pass into the end zone was batted away.
