Close to the Vest

How close have the Colts’ games been recently?  John Oehser has the answer:

Also according to Elias, the Colts are the first team in NFL history to win four consecutive games after trailing in the fourth quarter.

As I noted in today’s Hangover (and there it is.  See how I easily I dropped that in there?) Peyton Manning is flying up the all time list for comeback drives:

The Colts played sloppy football, but prevailed behind Peyton Manning’s fourth consecutive come-from-behind, fourth-quarter drive to win a game. Manning has comeback drives in five of 10 Indy wins this year to go with five more last year.  In fact, of Indy’s last 22 wins, Manning has led a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter in 11 of them.
Manning now has 33 come from behind fourth-quarter wins, and stands behind only a pantheon of football Gods –
Elway, Marino, and Unitas – on the all-time list.
And yes, I did just blockquote myself.
