Minutes after Lacey's interception, starting cornerback Kelvin Hayden got one of his own. After failing to convert on third down inside the Colts' red zone, the Rams elected to go for it on fourth down. But Bulger's end zone attempt was intercepted by Hayden and returned to the seven. **

FIRST QUARTER (8:50 remaining)**
