The Indianapolis Colts beat the Miami Dolphins, a close game, 27-23. An amazing game by the Colts and Dolphins.

The Colts were playing in Miami on September twenty first. In the first two to three minutes the Colts get the ball and Peyton Manning shoots the ball down to Dallas Clark. Clark gets the ball and breaks a tackle, he runs down and scores the touchdown. This whole touchdown was only 12 seconds or so after the kick-off of the game.

It was Manning's 6,000th pass in his whole career, amazing.

Then the Miami Dolphins come back with the great Ronnie Brown, as Chad Pennington the quarterback hands it off. As soon as Ronnie Brown gets it he dashes down the field for an eight-teen yard touchdown. It was so close as he literally falls into the endzone.

Then the Dolphins make a field-goal making it ten to seven. The Colts repeat the same and tie the game. Then in around the fourth quarter Freeney sacks Pennington with a great amount of force.

At the end Freeney also comes back with a wonderful knock down making Pennington fumble. But sadly the Dolphins get the ball. It was the last two seconds of the game, the Dolphins were under pressure. They had nothing but to go long for the endzone.

So Chad Pennington fires the ball down field with great force. Attempting to make a touchdown, but that didn't happen within the last second the ball was intercepted.

That is probably the best way to end the game for the Colts but not for the Dolphins. Leaving this game with a 27-23 victory for the Colts as they go for their 1,099 win. A glorious day for them.
