Just to prove the year before wasn’t a fluke, The Colts went back to Foxborough and stuck another ‘L’ on the Patriots home turf.
Peyton Manning led the Colts to scores on their first three possessions, but a second straight road victory included a major boost from the defense. It forced five Patriots turnovers, including four interceptions – two from Cato June and one each from Bob Sanders and Antoine Bethea. And the signature play of the game was the Manning touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison stretching out and keeping the toes in bounds. You knew it was going to be their night.
Final score: Colts 27, Pats 20
