Richards: Colts refuse to lose

Phil Richards notes that the spirit we’ve seen all year from an intensely proud group of men used to winning simply willed them to win:

The Colts refused to lose.

They got an outstanding effort from a defense that has allowed 26 points in the past two games.

They got field goals of 23, 32, 47 and 31 yards from Adam Vinatieri, who missed from 42 yards.

And they got a gut-check, pressure’s-on, here-we-come drive from their offense just before which Orlovsky got some coaching from Manning, who has been out since Sept. 8 neck surgery.

It was quite a night.
