Zurlon Tipton's one-yard touchdown catch from Matt HasselbeckThe scene: Down 42-0 with 10:12 to go in the fourth quarter, the Colts took over at their own 22-yard line.The anatomy of the drive: 8 plays for 78 yards in 4:48.Key play(s): In trying to stave off a shutout, the Colts got on the board with Matt Hasselbeck under center. This drive saw Hakeem Nicks catch a 10-yard pass in Cowboys territory. While the play itself wasn't massive in the eventual scoring drive, Nicks himself was a bright spot on Sunday. Nicks caught nine passes for 72 yards, both season highs. As the Colts wrap up the regular season, Nicks has shown some flashes the past couple of weeks of a guy known for making plays come playoff time.The score: After a pass interference penalty, the Colts were set up with a first-and-goal from the one-yard line. Pep Hamilton went into the playbook for a call that Ahmad Bradshaw became a touchdown machine on earlier this season. This time it was undrafted free agent Zurlon Tipton heading into the flat for the one-yard touchdown catch from Matt Hasselbeck. The touchdown for Tipton was the first of his NFL career and he finished the day with four catches for 23 yards.
