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