NFL.com wire reports
IRVING, Texas (Nov. 19, 2006) -- Maybe the burden of an unbeaten season was becoming too much for the Indianapolis Colts. They sure played like it.
Horseshit! Colts played a great game as did The Cowboys who got a free touchdown when Colts Management FAILED to throw a red flag on a should've been a down by contact call.
Colts Administration: should have thrown the red flag and challenge what was a down by contact when Manning threw into coverage to Harrison and the football was knocked loose by linebacker Kevin Burnett and cornerback Aaron Glenn. Marvin Harrison had made contact with Burnett as he hit the ground and got up returned it 39 yards for a touchdown. That's 7 points the Colts Management simply handed to The Dallas Cowboys.
Piss poor officiating: Manning's pass to Clark was dead on the money. "I got hit in the back. I don't know how it wasn't a call," Clark said. "It was a good ball. He knocked me down and took my place.
"That was a big one."
The Cowboy's defense outdid The Colts Offense as The Colts Defense outdid The Cowboys Offense.
and lost opportunities.
The teams had traded turnovers throughout much of the first half, with the Colts committing a season-high three turnovers before halftime and the Cowboys committing two.
The Cowboys couldn't take advantage of the Colts early turnovers because Indianapolis forced Dallas into mistakes, too. On the Cowboys' first series, Indianapolis defensive end Dwight Freeney sacked Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, forcing a fumble that linebacker Cato June recovered.
Later in the quarter, Colts cornerback Nick Harper
intercepted a deep pass from Romo at the Cowboys 9.
