The Indianapolis Colts, a surprise team for the wrong reasons, are 3-2 going into Sunday's game at Seattle. At issue: Peyton Manning threw an uncharacteristic three interceptions in a loss to New England, and Edgerrin James--who led the NFL in rushing last season--ranks eighth with 439 yards. James has only one 100-yard game. Manning thinks the Colts need to regain their balanced attack so teams have to be ready for them to run on any down.

7:30 TONIGHT BREA OLINDA HIGH For years, this has been the showdown that decided the Olympic League title. Although Orange Lutheran has been beset with injuries, including sophomore quarterback Casey Whieldon's broken collarbone, it still should be a pivotal game. Valley Christian, ranked second in Southern Section Division XI, leads the series, 14-5, but eighth-ranked Orange Lutheran has won four of the last six games, including a 35-20 victory last season.

Their running back quit, their coach resigned and their season is a shambles. But for some reason the Miami Dolphins kept trying against the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, even when they trailed by 11 points with three minutes left. And so the Dolphins staged a stunning comeback Monday night. With Tom Brady's ugly interception providing an opening, Miami scored two touchdowns in the final 2 minutes 7 seconds to beat the Patriots, 29-28. Much-maligned A.J.
