Trailing 31-14 in the fourth quarter, the Colts mounted a spirited comeback, highlighted by a defensive stop on fourth and two with 1:57 remaining (left inset). That gave Indy the ball with a short field at the 29, and Peyton Manning needed only four plays to score (right inset). Matt Stover hit the game-winning extra point.

Brady had only six incompletions in 25 passes and threw for two TDs as the Patriots built a 17-point lead and held on. Manning finished 38 of 52 for 396 yards, four TDs and three interceptions. He got the Colts within three with 4:46 left on an 18-yard pass to Blair White, who earlier in the fourth quarter caught a 5-yard TD toss. And Manning brought them within range of a stunning win before James Sanders' interception at the New England 6 with 31 seconds remaining.
