…And That’s Why The Colts Will Win The Super Bowl

simulated the Super Bowl on Madden 10 for PS3…
Peyton Manning was named MVP for his 4 TD 302-yard passing performance
Reggie Wayne had 2 TD and 113 yards receiving
Pierre Garcon had a TD and 74 yards
Dallas Clark had a TD and 56 yards
Joseph Addai had 82 yards rushing and a TD

Drew Brees threw for 287 yards 2 TD and 2 INT in a losing effort
Robert Meachem had a TD and 97 yards receiving
Marques Colston had a TD and 63 yards
Reggie Bush finished with 126 all-purpose yards and a rushing TD

the Colts took the opening drive 63 yards for the game’s first score when Peyton Manning hooked up with Reggie Wayne for the first of his two touchdown catches, a 17-yard strike.

the Saints responded on their opening drive with a nine-play 80 yard drive that was capped by an 8-yard TD pass from Drew Brees to Marques Colston


both teams punted on subsequent possessions, but the Colts found the end zone once again, when Manning hooked up with Pierre Garcon on a 22-yard pass play, putting the Colts up 14-7

the Saints had a chance to tie the game just before halftime, but the drive stalled just outside the 20, prompting them to settle for a 40-yard field goal


the Saints got the ball to start the 2nd half, but were once again thwarted by a stingy Colts defense, as Reggie Bush came up short on a 3rd and 2 play from the Colts 9. a 27-yard field goal by Garrett Hartley cut the Colts lead to 14-13

the Colts punted on their next possession, but the Saints failed to capitalize, when Brees was intercepted by Antoine Bethea.

the Colts had great field position starting the drive on the New Orleans 33. 5 plays later, Joseph Addai found the end zone on a 6-yard run.

Reggie Bush returned the ensuing kickoff all the way back to the Indianapolis 27, and was rewarded 4 plays later with an 11-yard touchdown run.


as the 4th quarter started, the Colts were faced with a critical 3rd and 12 from their own 32. that’s when Manning found Dallas Clark wide open on a crossing pattern that resulted in a 19-yard gain to keep the drive alive. it wasn’t long after that Manning once again hooked up with Clark on a 10-yard score that extended the Colts lead to 28-20.

the Saints had another solid drive going deep in to Colts territory when Drew Brees was picked off for a second time, this time by CB Kelvin Hayden.

the Colts went 62 yards on the subsequent drive. Manning found Wayne in the end zone for a second time, on a 23-yard touchdown pass to put the final touches on another Super Bowl victory

the Saints added a late touchdown when Brees connected with Robert Meachem on a 14-yard pass, but it was too little too late. the Saints were unable to recover the onside kick, and Indy ran out the clock…


Not even a surprise grizzly bear attack during the 3rd quarter could prevent Peyton Manning and the Colts from winning their second Super Bowl in four seasons
