Colts Lead Patriots, 15-12, Entering Fourth Quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium
INDIANAPOLIS – Halfway through the third quarter Sunday night, the Colts lost a lead they had held the entire game.
Minutes later, they got it back.
Anthony Gonzalez, who hadn't caught a touchdown pass in the first seven games of the season, caught his second of the game with just over three minutes remaining in the third quarter to give Indianapolis a 15-12 lead over the New England Patriots entering the fourth quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday night.
Gonzalez, a second-year veteran who caught a 12-yard touchdown in the first quarter, caught a nine-yard touchdown pass with 3:12 remaining in the third quarter to give Indianapolis a one-point lead. Reggie Wayne caught a two-point conversion pass to push the lead to three.
On the preceding drive, Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis' 6-yard run gave New England its first lead.
