Inspired football
Wounded defense lashes back
Almost perfect game.

 

First half, no first downs!
Where have you been all season,
mighty Colt defense?

 

Peyton throws three picks
And still Colts win by two scores
Could this be the year?

 

Courageous effort
Unexpected but welcome.
Colts learn to tackle.

 

Chief's total offense
One hundred twenty six yards
Defense dominates.

 

Tale of two runners
Addai runs through two deep zone
Johnson held in check

 

Freeney in frenzy
Trent Green, a deer in headlights
braces for impact

 

His presence is felt
whenever he's on the field
Sanders, the spark plug.
