Default Colts score first

I stayed up long enough to watch both teams first team offense play their first series. Falcons moved the ball well, but drive ended when Vick was intercepted after a high throw at the Colts 43 yard line. Colts responded with a 57 yard TD drive that was capped by a two yard TD pas from Manning to Walters. On the drive, Harrison caught 3 for 40 and James ran twice for 11. Falcons responded on their second series using 13 plays and riding Vicks arm and legs to drive to the Colts 5 yard line as the first quarter ended. As the second quarter began the Falcons had the ball fourth and 1 at the 5. The Falcons went for it on fourth down, but a penalty before the ball was snapped cost them 5 yards and they settled for a 27 yard FG by Todd Peterson to make it 7-3. The Falcons drive totaled 81 yards. On the ensuing kick-off the ball went out of bounds and Manning and friends began play at the 40 yard line. After James carried for 9 and Manning completed a six yard pass, Manning was chased out of the pocket on a blitz and was intercepted at the 50 yard line when he tried to force a pass. Matt Schaub replaces Vick and completes 17 yard pass to Finneran as the Falcons drive 33 yards to the 17 yard lineand settle for a 34 yard FG by Peterson. 7-6 Colts. I'm taping the rest and going to bed.

Thanks for the excellent, well detailed report Chirpy. Sounds like quite an action packed game.

The Pre-season is now officially upon us :-)

Half time score

...


Indianapolis Colts 14
Atlanta Falcons 20

It's hard to tell by just looking at Gamecenter but it seems that Matt Shaub is playing quite good (9/10 87 yards 2 touchdowns). But like I said it's hard to tell, maybe they'll show some highlights on PTI/ATH on Monday.
