FIRST QUARTER (13:02 remaining)**

As good as the Colts have been this season, sometimes it's just better to be lucky.

Two plays later, Manning found Garcon again over the middle for 36 yards. From there, running back Joseph Addai punched the ball into end zone from eight yards out to give the Colts their opening score. COLTS 7, TITANS 0
