Peyton Manning and the Patriots
Nov. 2, 2008: Colts 18, Patriots 15
The Patriots entered at 5-2, and had Matt Cassel at quarterback because of Tom Brady's knee injury. The Colts were a surprising 3-4, but Peyton Manning finished with 254 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Cassel threw short passes and the Patriots never found the end zone through the air, scoring only one rushing touchdown and three field goals.
The winning play came with 8:05 remaining in the fourth quarter when Adam Vinatieri nailed a 52-yard field goal. Pictured: Colts cornerback Bob Sanders (21) had a late interception, and Benjamin Watson made the tackle.
