    Week#12 Chargers 24 Colts 17

    After the first Charger punt, the high-powered Colts take it right down the field and punched it in with an Addai 4 yard TD pass from Manning to take an early 7-0 lead.

    But the ex-Jaguar Mike Thomas continues to impress this Charger coaching staff since coming over via-trade, taking the ensuing kickoff 100 yards to paydirt to nod it up a 7-7.

    Peyton Manning, being the competitor that he is, takes his squad right back down the field and again calls Addai's number, this time a run from 3 yards out to put the Colts back up 14-7.

    In a familiar spot, the Chargers once again find them selves not being able to stop what the opposing offenses are throwing at them, so its important to get something out of this last drive of the first half getting a 24 yard FG to tighten the Colt lead 14-10 at tha half.

    Chargers D stiffens up as the Bolts didn't let Payton Manning dissect the defense as they started to put pressure, he could only watch as the Chargers score the go ahead TD to always-reliable Gates for 17 yards to give the Chargers a 17-14 lead. Colts would tie the game at 17 all after a FG by Vinatieri

    But leaving too much time for the Chargers, who at this point are running on all cylinders the past few drives, taking it to the Colts and score the deciding TD with Mathews, who had a great day on the ground.

    Worried that there was a minute left in the game for Manning to lead another Colt comeback........was soon put to rest as he throws a clinching INT to Jammer to close out the game.
