Bills play keep away
Colts can't hang onto the ball
One point victory.

 

Hold breath each kickoff
In game of field position,
Colt foes cash in yards.

 

Two tough wins on road
One sloppy win at the dome
Each one counts the same.

 

Stats don't tell story.
Dwight Freeney makes trouble each
and every down.

 

Colts start two seasons
with nine consecutive wins.
No team has done this!

 

Much maligned defense
Surrenders only nine points
O fumbles, stumbles.

 

Not a masterpiece
Not suitable for framing
Win, not work of art.

 

Bills bet Colt mistakes
Polite hosts,  Ponies oblige
Playing not to lose.
