Indianapolis Colts faced the New England Patriots in a battle of the undefeated yesterday. They met in Indianapolis for the long awaited showdown.
The Colts put on a great performance. They handed the Patriots a lot of firsts this season (first interception for Brady in 176 passes, first time not to score in the first possession, first time to not score first and longest trailing time in a game.) The defense put a lot of pressure on the Patriots and ended the first half with a Colts lead, 13-7.
The Colts held on to the lead (20-10) up until the last 3 minutes of the game, when things completely turned around. The Patriots defense kicked it up, stopping the Colts' offense. Then Brady brought it home by scoring 2 touchdowns that took them to win the game, 24-20.
Although heartbroken at the Colts' lost, I am proud of the fact that they "brought it" to the game last night. They played with heart and while I expected them to get clobbered, they held their own for most of the game. I'm sure this is a lesson though, that they've got to hold on till the last whistle.
Although I royally hate Brady now, the Patriots and Colts have so far forced themselves to be the teams to watch this season. 8 more weeks till the playoffs.
