Dungy's decision
Kick early, go for it late.
Football's golden rule.

 

He can't run the stretch
But inbetween the tackles,
Peyton can't be stopped!

 

Four kicks, four misses
Thin yellow prophets of doom
Game winner breaks curse.

 

Not the snap or hold
Vinatieri's chief challenge
lies between his ears.

 

Hobbled herd lacks speed
Too many drops and wrong routes
Wayne can't catch 'em all

 

Freeney now fallen
Mathis demands double team
Rice to the rescue!

 

Pile-up in pocket
Pony passer in peril
Peyton's posse pwned.

 

Hit in the backfield
Nine yards, nine men in his way,
Joe runs 'round them all!
