Cal-Stanford redux
Five laterals, three fumbles
No trombone touchdown

 

New name for new stat
Call them facks or sumbles
Mathis would lead league.

 

Momentum can shift
like tectonic plates or the tides.
This tide lifts all Colts.

 

Ponies pull ahead
Supposed game winning drive.
Kick score turns tables.

 

Methodical march
Collected, confident
Colts drive in for win.

 

Forget the fullback
New goal line secret weapon
Peyton pounds it in.

 

Far from their best game,
Ten penalties, more miscues
Win by force of will.

 

No time or time-outs.
Masterful Manning-led drive
ends with sneak and spike
