This is my current feeling about the game. I've watched every Colts game and in a lot of them Indy fell behind early, Manning needed the first quarter or two to figure out the weaknesses in the defense, and then he exposed them over and over again in the second half to lead the Colts to a come from behind victory.
The Colts/Dolphins game still beats all I've ever seen. Go pull up the box score to that game and try to figure out how Indy won. Manning gets two weeks to breakdown and dissect the New Orleans defense and they aren't exactly the New York Jets or Baltimore Ravens on defense. Manning struggled and looked a little lost in the first half today (against the #1 pass defense) and then came out and owned them in the second half, without even having to use Clark or Wayne. Ryan (for some reason) benched Lito Sheppard at the last minute who had been starting at CB all year long for the Jets, and his back-ups got exposed over and over again, by two rookie WR's.
