2007: TIP DRILL
PATRIOTS 24, COLTS 20 Middle linebacker Gary Brackett, the Colts' defensive captain, had the best season of his career in 2007, and a play in the fourth quarter against the Patriots exemplified it. With the Colts needing a big play, Brackett delivered, making a diving interception of a pass by New England quarterback Tom Brady. Brackett tipped the pass to himself, then returned it to the Patriots 32 to set up the Colts' final touchdown. The Colts' defense held the Patriots to their second-lowest points total of the regular season.
