The Colts' defense upended the Ravens in another dominating effort.
This Looks Familiar
This may be look new to the Colts, but it's not new to Tony Dungy. The Colts went old-school and played a little "Buc ball" in their win over the Ravens, writes Greg Garber. Story
 
SCOUTS' TAKE
In a game littered with turnovers, field goals and imprecise play, both quarterbacks uncharacteristically pressed and forced the issue. Both offenses tried to control the tempo of the game -- Indianapolis to speed up the pace, the Ravens to slow it down -- but were largely ineffective. Indianapolis also made plenty of mistakes on third downs, after rushing to the line trying to catch Baltimore off guard. The stretch play is a staple of Indianapolis' offense, but it took far too long developing laterally and was largely unsuccessful against the fast, aggressive Ravens' defensive front. Both defenses played their safeties very deep to eliminate the long pass and kept everything in front of them, but if Indianapolis got single coverage on its wide receivers, Manning looked their way. Samari Rolle was exposed by Reggie Wayne, but Ed Reed had a bead on Manning the entire game. To exploit the quick upfield rush of Indianapolis' defensive ends, Baltimore threw to Jamal Lewis in the flat much more than usual and was quite successful, but too often drifted away from a productive running game. In a nutshell, the Colts executed slightly better, especially when it mattered most, and Adam Vinatieri deserves kudos for another outstanding postseason performance.
