INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri spent all week ignoring the critics and then drowned out the boos Sunday afternoon.Eventually, he silenced everyone with his usual late-game magic.
Only four QBs in NFL history reached 100 wins faster than Peyton Manning, who hit the century mark Sunday.
Manning's second completion, a 38-yarder to Wayne, made him the second-fastest player to reach 40,000 yards passing. Manning did it in 154 games, Dan Marino did it in 153. ... Colts receiver Aaron Moorehead left with a back injury and tackle Ryan Diem left with a knee injury and did not return. ... The Chiefs have lost nine of their last 10 against Indy. ... Bowe finished with seven catches for 64 yards.
The Indianapolis defense was outstanding in restricting the running space for Kansas City RBs Priest Holmes and Kolby Smith and not allowing explosive downfield plays to QB Brodie Croyle. Even though defensive coordinator Ron Meeks has one of the lightest defenses in the NFL, the Colts are definitely one of the fastest units and they swarm the ball carrier in the Tampa 2 system. On the other side of the ball, it is clear that injuries are significantly affecting what the Colts can do to attack opposing defenses.
