Sunday was brutal when it came to NFL injuries, and the star players weren't spared. St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford and Houston linebacker Brian Cushing suffered season-ending knee injuries; Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley was carted off the field with a neck injury and remained in the hospital Sunday night; and a groin injury ended the day for Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler. In the night game, Indianapolis receiver Reggie Wayne's right knee twisted awkwardly as he tried to catch a low ball that was slightly off target.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - In the last five years, receiver Anquan Boldin has gotten to the Super Bowl with the Arizona Cardinals, won one with the Baltimore Ravens, and, as a member of the San Francisco 49ers this season, is one victory away from a third visit to the NFL's biggest stage. Now that's some impeccable zigzagging route running. "I'm in a position where I could possibly compete for a championship again," Boldin said Wednesday, during a break from preparations for Sunday's NFC championship game at Seattle.

Who was that construction worker riding in a dump truck, then pulling up and arriving at Indianapolis Colts training camp wearing a hard hat, a neon orange vest and carrying a metal lunch bucket? Would you believe wide receiver Reggie Wayne? "We're under construction for the Super Bowl here, and we have the blueprints to make it happen," said Wayne while wearing a white hard hat that read, "Wayne's Construction." "This is all about the road to the Super Bowl."

If Peyton Manning ever compares his record four most-valuable-player awards, the honor this season might come out on top. He didn't throw for 49 touchdowns as he did in 2004, but if there was ever a season in which Manning best embodied the award, it was this one, when the Indianapolis Colts rebuilt their offense on the fly. Now they're one victory shy of a second trip to the Super Bowl with Manning, facing the upstart New York Jets in Sunday's AFC...

Jacksonville, Fla. -- The Indianapolis Colts have surged into unfamiliar territory -- but took a well-worn path to get there. The Colts improved to 14-0 on Thursday for the first time in franchise history, and did so with yet another come-from-behind effort in the fourth quarter. Peyton Manning threw four touchdown passes -- the clincher a 65-yarder to Reggie Wayne with 5:23 to play -- to lift the Colts to a 35-31 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. In a game that had nine lead changes, Indianapolis overcame a deficit in the fourth quarter to win for the seventh time this season, the most by any team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.

The NFL hasn't lost a star or two, it has lost a constellation. A slew of injuries Sunday either ended the seasons or severely hampered a host of prominent players, among them St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford, Houston linebacker Brian Cushing and Indianapolis receiver Reggie Wayne, all of whom will sit out the rest of the season because of knee injuries. Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler is out at least a month because of a torn groin muscle. Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley remained in the hospital Monday because of a neck injury, and his football future is uncertain.

'I really didn't think he would make it, not that he didn't deserve it. But it's a tough perception to overcome -- that your No. 2 receiver is better than 28 other receivers in the league.' Tony Dungy, Indianapolis Colts coach, after Reggie Wayne joined Marvin Harrison on the AFC Pro Bowl roster

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.

When Reggie Wayne heard Indianapolis Colt fans chanting his name, some teammates insisted he was in the wrong place. Peyton Manning had him right where he wanted. Wayne produced the best game of his NFL career, catching 10 passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns -- nearly all in the second half -- as he carried the Colts to a 23-13 victory over Jacksonville on Sunday. "It's not Reggie Miller today -- it's Reggie Wayne," the third-year receiver said. "So I can enjoy it for one day."

Chuck Pagano has preached the value of relationships since taking over as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts back in January. The team showed Tuesday that their coach's words have gotten through. More than 30 players, coaches and staff members had their heads shaved in a show of support for Pagano, who was diagnosed with leukemia on Sept. 26. Quarterback Andrew Luck, receiver Reggie Wayne, defensive end Cory Redding, safety Antoine Bethea and kicker Adam Vinatieri were among the players who took part.

Reggie Wayne has been a part of many big games over the years. In 12 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, the receiver has spent most of his career catching passes thrown by the great Peyton Manning and has played in multiple playoffs games and two Super Bowls. But he's had more yards receiving than he did Sunday, when he had 212 yards in 13 catches (included the amazing one-handed grab in the video above) during the Colts' 30-27 comeback victory over the Green Bay Packers. And Wayne probably has played in few games more emotional than the one Sunday, days after Coach Chuck Pagano announced he would be entering the hospital to undergo treatment for leukemia.

Indianapolis Colts Coach Chuck Pagano , who is hospitalized as he battles a treatable form of leukemia , sent a letter to the team this week asking them to play in an attempt to even their record at 2-2 rather than dedicate the game to him. Owner Jim Irsay told the players that he wanted a victory over the Green Bay Packers so he could deliver the game ball to Pagano, but the coach was having none of it. "We all have a job to...

Vincent Jackson is now free to move about the country. Or he will be as soon as the NFL's free-agency period starts on March 13. Unlike a year ago, the San Diego Chargers decided not to use the franchise tag on their top wide receiver. Such a move would have counted more than $13 million against the salary cap, a number General Manager A.J. Smith decided the team just couldn't afford this year. Still, Smith said the Chargers are hoping to retain the services of the man who led the team in receiving yards in three of the last four seasons and in touchdown receptions in two of the last three seasons.

The Indianapolis Colts agreed to terms Wednesday with Kerry Collins, making him the likely starter in case Peyton Manning isn't healed completely from off-season neck surgery by the time the season begins Sept. 11 at Houston. Not every player liked the move. "We don't even know him, we ain't vanilla, man, we ain't no simple offense," receiver Reggie Wayne said. "So for him to can come in here and be the starter, I don't see it. I think that's a step back. " Colts Coach Jim Caldwell wasn't available to talk with reporters about Collins, but he struck a calm tone in a statement released by the team.

Amazingly, the Kansas City Chiefs -- a club that won just 10 games in the last three seasons -- is the NFL's only undefeated team. If they win at Indianapolis on Sunday, the Chiefs will become the eighth team in NFL history to start 4-0 after starting the previous season 0-4. "We don't want a repeat performance of last year," cornerback Brandon Carr told the Kansas City Star. "But we knew last year that we were getting better.

What the Indianapolis Colts' offense needs to concentrate on to combat the New Orleans Saints' defense in Super Bowl XLIV. Beat the clock Peyton Manning is the best in the business when it comes to squeezing every last second out of the play clock to figure out what the defense is doing. The NFL is all about disguise, and the Saints defense will want to hide whether it's in man or zone coverage because Manning can exploit that. You frequently see Manning pointing across the line of scrimmage, often at a linebacker.
