Colts...44 Ravens...20

December 10, 2007|From the Associated Press

BALTIMORE -- The Indianapolis Colts strolled back into the playoffs with a performance that fully displayed just how far the Baltimore Ravens have fallen in 11 months.

Peyton Manning threw four touchdown passes, including the 300th of his career, and the Colts built a 30-point lead in the second quarter en route to a 44-20 victory.

The win, combined with Tennessee's loss to San Diego, assured the Colts (11-2) a sixth consecutive trip to the postseason.

Baltimore (4-9) has lost a franchise-record seven games in a row. The Ravens committed five turnovers, had a punt blocked and managed only 57 yards through the first 30 minutes.

At halftime, with Indianapolis leading, 37-7, and a driving rain making things even more uncomfortable for the crowd, well over half of the 70,513 headed for the exits.

Quoteworthy: "You can't win when you turn the ball over against any team, let alone a team like that." -- Brian Billick, Ravens coach
