FOURTH QUARTER (2:23 remaining)


A quick touchdown drive has pulled the Colts within six. Manning led the Colts' offense 79 yards in less than two minutes and handed the ball off to Addai for the four-yard score. The Colts elected to kick-off to the Patriots, whom will take over from their own 20. **COLTS 28, PARTIOTS 34

Colts linebacker Philip Wheeler forced Patriots running back Laurence Maroney to fumble and linebacker Gary Brackett recovered the ball in the Colts end zone for a touchback. **

FIRST QUARTER (4:47 remaining)


The Patriots responded to the Colts' touchdown drive with one of their own. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady found wide receiver Randy Moss open the middle for a 55-yard gain that set up running back Laurence Maroney's one-yard touchdown. **COLTS 7, PATRIOTS 7

FIRST QUARTER (8:19 remaining)


On their second possession of the game, the Colts quickly found the end zone. Quarterback Peyton Manning led the offense 90 yards down the field in less than four minutes and capped off an eight-play drive with a 15-yard touchdown pass to running back Joseph Addai. Addai scored on a screen pass and benefitted from some strong blocking by the offensive line down field.  COLTS 7, PATRIOTS 0

On the play, Addai injured his finger and his return is questionable.


FIRST QUARTER (11:47 remaining)**

After receiving the opening kickoff, the Colts offense went three-and-out and was forced to punt. On the enusing possession, New England exchanged the favor and punted back to the Colts. Indianapolis will take over from its own 10-yard line.
