A game of quick swings continues, Broncos up 14-10

Peyton Manning can strike quickly, but the Colts proved they can too.

Taking advantage of a fumbled punt by Trindon Holliday, the Colts took a 10-7 lead when Andrew Luck hit Darrius Heyward-Bey for an 11-yard touchdown pass on the next play.

Holliday was initially ruled out of bounds, but the call was reversed and the Colts were given the ball (though not the return for an immediate touchdown since the play was ruled dead on the field). Fullback Stanley Havili did a good job of stripping the ball from the diminutive return man, and Sergio Brown recovered.

The Colts have shown they can make plays on special teams over the course of the season, but Manning just replied with a touchdown pass to tight end Julius Thomas for a 14-10 lead.

And you get the feeling this one’s going to go back and forth all night.

    How I wished the announcers did what they did to the replacements, Was a bogus call by refs as well as the kick off when Indy kicker hit return man helmet to helmet, no call. Odd no mention yet in other games today the helmet hit was brought up quite a few times. Lets get it straight the full time officials aren’t any better in being consistent in calling rule on the field. My team is either one playing tonight, point is officials are causing teams games.

    If the Broncos want to get cold feet about Holliday again then the Lions would be more than welcome to swing a trade!

    So far, not historic.

    Not even half time and the refs have already blown two TD calls

    You need to like football more if you think a helmet to helmet hit on a ball carrier is a penalty.

    If Indy wins, except a story about how Irsay’s comments affected Peyton.

    Since you are throwing out articles like this, why haven’t we seen another about the Colts being ahead 19-14?

    4thand48 –

    There was an article after 4 minutes saying that the game was “underwhelming”. You won’t get f&b headlines
