Colts...18 Vikings...15

September 15, 2008|From the Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- Taking a beating all afternoon, Peyton Manning peeled himself off the Metrodome turf and gave it right back to the Minnesota defense.

Manning rallied Indianapolis from a 15-0 hole late in the third quarter, moving Adam Vinatieri into position for the winning field goal with three seconds left and leading the Colts to an 18-15 victory over the Vikings.

Avoiding his first 0-2 start since his rookie season in 1998, Manning zinged a 20-yard pass on third and nine to Reggie Wayne before Vinatieri hit a 47-yard kick.

The Vikings wasted yet another strong effort by their dominant defense.

Quoteworthy: "He's seen it all. You can never rattle him, I don't think." -- Antoine Winfield, Vikings cornerback, on Peyton Manning
