Inside The Huddle:
The Colts end their 2010 season when Jets kicker Nick Folk kicks a game winning field goal as time expires on Saturday night. In pre-game interviews, Coach Caldwell, Dwight Freeney, Antoine Bethea, and other Colts players listed winning the turnover battle as keys to a Colts victory. How’d they do?
- Win the turnover battle – The Colts didn’t turn the ball over and managed one interception on an over-throw by Marc Sanchez. Grade: A
- Protect Peyton – Rookie Jeff Linkenbach replaced Ryan Diem at right tackle and played well. Peyton Manning was sacked once. Grade: B
- Pressure Sanchez – The Colts D hit the Jets quarterback five times, one of them a sack. Grade: B
Too high? Too low? What do you think?

Due to technical difficulties (i’m an idiot), I missed the first 5 mins or so of the show. So video #1 is the official version (they remove NFL-owned content). Video #2 is mine and contains the final 15 mins.
