To start the 3rd quarter the Redskins had taken advantage of an uncharacteristic Manning fumble to trim the score to 17-14 Colts. The drive after this Joe Addai had the best run of his career and topped the drive off with a 13 yard TD run. The ‘Skins got the ball on their own 14. With the score 24-14 Colts it was time for the defense to take control of this game and turn it into a blowout. Five plays later the Colts D had done their job and it was time to punt. Unfortunately, the punt was muffed and counted as a positive 30 yard gain. To me, this drive was a microcosm for the entire game. The Colts schematically were near perfect and they dominated the LOS. Their tackling was horrendous and an untimely turnover made the whole performance moot.
