Fourth quarter notes
– Peyton Manning’s 7-yard back shoulder throw to Pierre Garcon with 7:38 to play put the Colts up 31-19 and in control.
Indianapolis, following Janikowski’s fourth field goal fo the game, drove 68 yards nine plays, doing much of the damage on the ground as the Raiders stuck almost exclusively with the big nickel defense they used most of the game.
– The Colts played a deep Cover 2 and enabled the Raidres to pile up completions while eating up valuable clock time in the fourth quarter.
– The Raiders drove 80 yards in 12 plays to score on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Jason Campbell to Zach Miller, but Jacob Tamme recovered Sebastian Janikowski’s onsides kick.
— Manning’s second interception of the game, this one by Chris Johnson after a deflection on a slant route to Garcon deflected by Rolando McClain, set Oakland up at the 37.
The Raiders only netted 10 yards with a third-down sack by Mathis forcing Janikowskon to the field for his fourth field goal of the game, this one from 45 yards with 12:59 left, bringing Oakland within 24-19.
