It's hard to tell how much was a hangover from the Game of the Century and how much was the result of a sudden cascade of injuries, but the Colts looked terrible in the first half against San Diego. Peyton Manning threw four interceptions and the special teams allowed two return touchdowns, as San Diego built a 23-0 lead. The Colts came storming back to score 21 straight points, and were in position to pull out the win when Adam Vinatieri honked an easy field goal, thus putting an end to the rally. The Colts finished the game playing without their left tackle, their right tackle, their #1 and #3 receivers, their starting tight end and their star pass rusher. Is the fragility of Indy's roster strategy going to come back to bite them?

This year's update to the playoff drive stats show that the football gods may have been on Peyton Manning's side this time. Also: Cam Newton and Alex Smith enter the mix, and why we should be comparing Andrew Luck to Dan Marino.
