Featured Game Week 6 - Indianapolis Colts At Washington Redskins

     The Redskins need a win to keep pace with the Giants and Eagles who both won today to up their records to 4-2. The Colts are in a similar predicament as the Texans advanced to 4-2 earlier today, and either the Titans or Jaguars will be 4-2 after they play each other tomorrow. This is a big game for both teams but not a must win for either.

The Colts struck quickly after a McNabb interception. The first play was a Manning to Garcon 57 yard TD pass. Not much in the way of PossessionPoints, but 7 scoreboard points.

Colts answer, so far this doesn't look like a defensive struggle. The Colts moved efficiently down the field going 84 yards in just over 3 minutes. Much better in terms of PossessionPoints than their first 11 second drive.

Colts offense working at break neck speed. Running no-huddle and keeping the Redskins back on their heals. This drive stalled out but unlike an earlier drive they did get a field goal.

Colts get the 10 point lead back in a hurry, but it wasn't with Manning's passing. It was Addai's running that was responsible for the big play and the TD on the drive that lasted 1 minute and 57 seconds.

Well, it wasn't the Colts best game but it was good enough for them to keep pace. The Redskins will fall 1 game off the pace of the Giants and Eagles who are currently leading the division.
