Heavyweight fighters
Pats land 1st punch-pound Colts down
Colts rise up. Knock out!

 

Corner's worst nightmare,
Touchdown machine Dan Klecko,
demands double team!

 

Championship game
More plot twists than Hitchcock film
Happier ending.

 

Two end zone fumbles
Two offensive lineman score
Big men save bacon!

 

Elway's "Drive," Steelers
"Immaculate Reception"
Now, Manning's "Comeback."

 

Despite deficit
Players, coach, fans, city win
by sheer force of will.

 

Down by 18 at half,
18 struggles, then digs deep
Finds a way to win.

 

Not camel or ape.
Manning muzzles naysayers
No monkeys, no humps
