From Elias: Nick Folk's game-winning field goal with 0:00 left was only the second "win-or-lose" field goal made in NFL postseason history. We define a "win-or-lose" field goal as a kick with no time left. If the kick is good, the team wins; if the kick is no good, the team loses. The only other one is Matt Bahr's game-winning field goal with no time left for the Giants to win the 1990 NFC Championship in San Francisco.
Peyton Manning had a 108.7 passer rating Saturday against the Jets and still lost. It's the first time in his career (now 4-1) that he's lost a playoff game when he had a passer rating over 100.
The Colts were held without a point in the first quarter Saturday against the Jets. The only other time the Colts were held scoreless through the first quarter of a playoff game in the Peyton Manning era (since 1998) was in the 2002 Wild Card Game, also against the Jets, when they ended up losing 41-0
