INDIANAPOLIS << LUCAS OIL STADIUM >> A new chapter of the Colts-Patriots rivalry was written Sunday night, featuring a crucial fourth-down stop and a second-half comeback for the ages. Sunday night’s showdown – between the NFL’s two winningest teams over the past decade – took its biggest twist with 2:08 left in the fourth quarter.
After trailing by as many as 17 points, 31-14, in the fourth quarter, the Indianapolis Colts finally got their break as the New England Patriots’ lead began to dwindle. Thanks to two touchdown drives in the fourth quarter, lasting less than four minutes combined, the Colts had cut the Patriots’ lead to six. New England got the ball back before the two-minute warning, but failed to pick up a first down on their first three plays. Facing 4th-and-2 from their own 28, the Patriots sent out their punting unit.
But the Patriots coaching staff experienced a change of heart and sent their offense back on the field. Rather than punt, they were going to go for it on fourth down and, more importantly, for the win. If the Patriots picked up the first down, the game would be over. If they came up short, the Patriots would be handing incredible field position to the Colts, leaving them within striking distance of the go-ahead score.
No words can adequately state the Indianapolis Colts defeat of the New England Patriots Sunday night. I was at this game. It was my first time seeing either the Colts or the Patriots play. I must say Lucas Stadium is impressive. Indianapolis Colts 35 – New England Patriots 34
So, I’ll do what I’m good at. Here are some 2009/2010 Colts wallpapers. Enjoy my new team!
