    Anybody notice the clock?

    Putting the poor spot aside, the play was blown dead at 2:05.  The clock continued to run until 2:03 then momentarily stopped.  Then it started running again until 1:57.  When the Colts took over, they combined the two-minute warning with the change of possession stoppage.  If the Colts started at 2:05, the Patriots would have gotten a free timeout at the two minute warning.  All other things being the same, they take over with around 50 seconds remaining in the game and have a chance to drive for the field goal.

    Although possibly stretching, if Addai is in that same position with 1:40 left in the game, I think the Pats could have let him score once he reached the one-yard line and they would have had 1:40 to drive down for the field goal.

    They were handed the game by the Pats and refs. Their teeth and fingernails are intact.

    I'm not sure it was a bad spot.  I honestly never thought Faulk got it secured until his foot came down short.  Regardless, the time to go on 4th was when the Pats settled for their last field goal.  Maybe I'm missing something, but I was really questioning why Bellichek didn't feel the confidence in his offense at that point to try dragging more off the clock and instead settled for 3.  'Can't understand running ourselves out of timeouts either.

    Totally disagree.

    There is a difference between earning something and having it handed to you. The Colts had this game handed to them.

    Squirt some tears you big baby...Admit your team got beat, the refs didn't have ANYTHING to do with the Colts winning that game. The Pats got beat, they are now 5-1 against Indy over the last 4 years, it wasn't an accident, the Colts are just that good....

    All -

    One - the refs reset the clock back to 2:00. 

    Two - Root - Yes the pats did their part in giving this game away, but do not think for a minute that the colts did not have a hand in it.  They held on D. 

    They colts came back from a 17 pt deficit in the 4th not including an additional 3 pts scored by the pats changing it from a 2 td/1 fg deficit to a 3 td deficit.  The colts HAD to perform and they did.
