Defense Leads The Way As Colts Remain Unbeaten

Last updated on Monday, November 23, 2009

(BALTIMORE, MD) - The Indianapolis Colts improved to 10-0 as they survived a battle in Baltimore to defeat the Ravens 17-15.

The Colts made some big plays on defense to keep Baltimore out of the end zone as the Ravens were forced to settle for five Billy Cundiff field goals.

Peyton Manning threw for 299 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions as the Colts got a 25-yard field goal from Matt Stover with 7:02 remaining that proved to be the difference.

Baltimore would have a couple of chances after that, but Gary Brackett picked off a Joe Flacco pass at the Indianapolis 13 to kill one drive.

The Ravens' final opportunity was snuffed out when Ed Reed fumbled a punt return and the Colts' Freddie Keiaho made the recovery with eleven seconds remaining.

Joseph Addai had his best day of the season, rushing for 74 yards and a score while Pierre Garcon caught six passes for 108 yards.

With the victory, Indianapolis has won 19 consecutive regular season games, two wins behind the all-time record set by the New England Patriots during the 2007 and 2008 seasons.

The Colts are at Houston this Sunday to face the Texans.
