Colts Victory Slips By In 4th Quarter

Last updated on Monday, November 5, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Tom Brady threw a pair of touchdown passes in the final eight minutes as the New England Patriots came from behind to defeat the Indianapolis Colts 24-20.

Indianapolis built a 20-10 lead when quarterback Peyton Manning scored on a quarterback sneak early in the fourth quarter. Brady responded by throwing TD passes to Wes Welker and Kevin Faulk to give him 33 touchdown passes on the season and to keep New England perfect at 9-and-0.

Sunday's loss to New England spoiled a big day by Colts running back Joseph Addai. Addai ran for 112 yards and caught five passes for 114 more, including a 73-yard score on a screen pass late in the first half to give Indianapolis its first lead of the day.

The Colts see their twelve-game winning streak come to an end as well as their three-game streak over the Patriots.

The Colts fall to 7-and-1 and head west to face the San Diego Chargers on Sunday night.
