Put up or shut up
Press' punching bag no more
Gutsy prime time win.

 

Bolstered by the crowd
Defense draws a line in sand
This far, no farther!

 

Backs against the wall
Colts undermanned and wounded
Play best game of year.

 

No mowhawk, no ads,
No dances or props for Marv
Just score after score.

 

Crisis point for Colts
Great ones relish these chances
Rise above last loss

 

Freeney's wrath unleashed
Double team frustration gone.
Palmer flattened thrice.

 

Pure adversity
is the best kind of polish.
It makes horseshoes shine.

 

Division secured,
Colts set sights on earning bye
Extra week to heal!
