Colts Slip Past Chiefs With Field Goal

Last updated on Monday, November 19, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Adam Vinatieri’s 24-yard field goal with three seconds remaining gave the Indianapolis Colts a 13-10 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Vinatieri missed two field goals in the first quarter, extending his career-high streak to four-straight misses dating back to the Colts' loss in San Diego last week.

Vinatieri snapped the streak with a 27-yarder late in the first half that tied the game at three heading to halftime.

The Colts took the lead midway through the third quarter on a three-yard run by Joseph Addai but the Chiefs would tie it at ten when Brodie Croyle found Dwayne Bowe for a 19-yard score.

Peyton manning would lead the Colts on a 14-play, 61-yard drive over the final seven minutes of the game to set up Vinatieri's game-winner. A key play in the final drive was Manning's sneak for a first down on fourth-and-one at the Kansas City two yard line with 1:44 remaining.

The first down enabled Manning to take a knee on three-straight plays and leave Vinatieri six seconds to kick the winning field goal.

Two Indianapolis players left the game early with injuries as right tackle Ryan Diem aggravated the injuries to his right leg while wide receiver Aaron Moorehead exited after taking a hit to the back.

The Colts improve to 8-and-2 and have just three days to rest up before heading to Atlanta to face the Falcons on Thanksgiving night..
