EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Michael Vick led the New York Jets on a touchdown drive, capped by fellow newcomer Chris Johnson's 1-yard scoring run, in a 13-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

Geno Smith, looking to retain his starting job in his second season, was 4 of 6 for 33 yards in two series with the first-team offense that included a 51-yard field goal by Nick Folk before giving way to Vick. The 34-year-old backup received a hearty cheer from the crowd at MetLife Stadium, and moved the starting offense for the Jets (1-0) down the field against the Colts' second-team defense.

The 14-play drive was helped by two 15-yard penalties on the Colts (0-1). Vick was 3 of 6 for 17 yards.

Andrew Luck played just one efficient drive, going 4 of 5 for 53 yards and leading Indianapolis to a field goal.
