In retrospect, maybe being first-and-goal at the Patriots 2-yard line with 40 seconds left was the worst place the Colts could have been Sunday. What looked to be a sure game-winning touchdown drive failed on four attempts, resulting in a 38-34 loss to the Patriots.
Peyton Manning thought he had all the time and all the tools he needed to punch over the game-winning touchdown. He had a time out at hand. He had 40 seconds. He needed only two yards for a score.
