(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts' 23-game regular-season winning streak and their quest for a perfect season are over as they fell to the New York Jets 29-15 at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts led 9-3 at halftime when Brad Smith ran the opening kickoff of the second half 106 yards for a touchdown to give the Jets their first lead at 10-9.

Peyton Manning led the Colts on an 81-yard drive culminating in a Donald Brown one-yard touchdown run as Indianapolis regained the lead at 15-10.

Manning left the game at that point and New York took the lead to stay when Calvin Pace sacked Curtis Painter, forcing a fumble that was recovered by Marques Douglas for the Jets' go-ahead score.

The Jets improve to 8-7 as they keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Colts fall to 14-1 heading to the regular season finale Sunday afternoon in Buffalo.

Before he left Sunday's loss against the Jets, Peyton Manning did reach a career milestone.

Manning hit Austin Collie with a 24-yard pass early in the third quarter to become the fourth player in NFL history to surpass 50,000 passing yards for his career.

Manning joins Brett Favre, Dan Marino and John Elway on the list as the only quarterbacks to reach the 50,000-yard mark.

At 33, Manning is the youngest player to reach 50,000 yards.
