Momentum: Saints grab momentum with a successful onside kick and a 59-yard touchdown drive for their first lead. The Colts took the momentum right back, however, using their no-huddle offense and responding with a 10-play, 76-yard TD drive. Starting to turn into offensive show everyone expected as Saints came back to drive for a 47-yard field goal by Garrett Hartley.

Did you notice? There were only two incompletions in the quarter. . . . Thomas accounted for 53 yards from scrimmage. . . . Hartley became the first kicker with three 40-plus-yard Super Bowl field goals.

Unanswered question: Why did Thomas seem covered in grease to Colts tacklers?
