Colts take the lead with a pair of big plays

Andrew Luck AP

The Colts got themselves right back in the game with the Seahawks, and they did it in dramatic fashion.

After a flat start, the Colts now lead 14-12 after Delano Howell returned a blocked field goal 61 yards for a touchdown. Lawrence Guy got his hand on the ball, and Howell got a good bounce and was able to (mostly) outrun punter/holder Jon Ryan for the score.

They had previously got on the board when quarterback Andrew Luck played pitch-and-catch with T.Y. Hilton for a 73-yard touchdown.

The Seahawks had been playing aggressive defense throughout, but cornerback Richard Sherman let Hilton get a clean release, and safety Kam Chancellor skipped a chance to blast Hilton out of bounds. Hilton’s nifty stop-and-start move left Chancellor looking like Wile E. Coyote running off a cliff, and realizing gravity was about to kick in.

    These referees are horrible. Took away a Seahags touchdown and called a bogus offensive PI.

    It would be hard for any colt fan to not admit the officiating has sucked terribly, especially negatively towards the seahawks. Called a punt block td a safety, very very suspect, called a pi against tate on a potential top ten espn type of play that never happen.

    Give credit where due the Colts have been optimistic, they are being dominated but found a guy in blown coverage against Thomas and a punt block for td. Their offense has been disgusting but their in the game. That’s how both teams play, win even in ugly games ..

    Go luck colts fans, GO SEAHAWKS

    Refs took 5 points from Seahawks. Minus blown coverage 73 yard TD, Colts have 11 yards of offense.

    Cmon why right some stupid little willie o coyote Bs about Chancellor. It was EARL THOMAS, not the player who blasts people. Trust me Kam Chancellor would have killed ty hilton he’s the size of a LB And runs like a quick safety.
