(12-26-65) 1965 Western Conference Championship - Baltimore Colts @ Green Bay Packers - Don Chandler's second field goal provided the winning margin for the Packers at 13:39 of sudden death overtime as Green Bay defeated Baltimore 13-10 in front of 50,484 partisans. His 25-yard kick ended the only overtime playoff game in Packers history, a contest necessitated when the two teams ended the regular season with matching 10-3-1 records. Chandler's first field goal, a 22-yarder with 1:58 remaining in regulation to tie the game, remains controversial to this day, Baltimore loyalists claiming it was wide right. The kick sailed high above the uprights, making it difficult for game officials to determine its accuracy. Uprights were lengthened for the next season in an effort to avoid a recurrence of this situation. The Colts, who were playing without starting quarterback Johnny Unitas (knee) and his backup, Gary Cuozzo (dislocated shoulder), used halfback Tom Matte as a fill-in. He completed only five passes, but did gain 57 yards rushing. Baltimore took a 10-0 halftime lead, scoring first 21 seconds into the game when linebacker Don Shinnick scooped up a Bill Anderson fumble and went 25 yards for a touchdown. Packers quarterback Bart Starr injured his ribs on the play, Green Bay's first from scrimmage, when he tried to get to Shinnick. Zeke Bratkowski replaced Starr for the balance of the afternoon, completing 22 of 39 passes for 248 yards. The Packers moved to within 10-7 in the third quarter when Paul Hornung scored on a one-yard run, setting the stage for Chandler's heroics. - NFL Play by Play Report. Color film footage from game.

(09-10-66) Baltimore Colts @ Green Bay Packers - The proud Green Bay Packer defense humiliated the great Johnny Unitas and carried the Packers to a 24-3 victory over the Baltimore Colts. Lee Roy Caffey and Bob Jeter picked off two Unitas passes in less than two minutes and turned them into touchdowns as the Packers eliminated any doubts about their claim to the NFL crown. The two sudden scores broke the backs of the Colts' resistance. The Packers offense, which had slumbered through most of the first half, caught fire and dominated play the rest of the game. Bart Starr combined with Boyd Dowler and Paul Hornung to spark a 79-yard third period drive that ended with Starr bolting over for a touchdown from the eight. Don Chandler, whose field goal had beaten Baltimore 13-10 in last December's dramatic playoff for the Western Conference crown, kicked another from the 15 as the Packers took a 24-3 lead with only a quarter to play. But the defense, as it had through the Packers 1965 season, was the key to the victory, Green Bay's fourth straight over the Colts. Caffey's 52-yard romp with a pass stolen from the peerless Colts' quarterback gave the Packers a 7-3 lead late in the second period. Four plays later Jeter got into the act by grabbing another Unitas pass at the Baltimore 46 and racing untouched into the end zone. Unitas was missing from the Colts' lineup last season when the Packers and Colts met in the playoff game. But he seemed completely recovered from knee surgery as he led the Colts to early game mastery over the slight underdog Packers. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original, 26 minutes (Quality 9) - Added June, 2009

(12-10-66) Green Bay Packers @ Baltimore Colts - Elijah Pitts, who toiled in the shadow of Paul Hornung for years, scored two big touchdowns for Green Bay Saturday in a 14-10 victory over the stubborn Baltimore Colts, clinching the Western Conference title. It was the fifth conference crown for the Packers in eight years since Vince Lombardi came West to take over the coaching job. The gruelling battle was fought in a rainstorm that soaked most of the sell-out crowd of 60,238 at Memorial Stadium and turned the field into a mudbath. Pitts, the 27-year-old halfback from Philader Smith College scored in the first period on a 42-yard pass reception from Bart Starr to give the Packers a 7-0 lead. He scored again in the fourth period on a two-yard plunge after the Colts had taken a 10-7 halftime lead. The Colts scored all their points in the second period on a two-yard plunge by Tony Lorick and a 26-yard field goal by Lou Michaels. Lorick's touchdown was set up by a pass from Johnny Unitas to Tom Matte that took the ball to the two-yard line. The Colts almost won the game in the closing minutes when Unitas led a drive to the Packers' 15-yard line and then left his protective pass pocket to run the ball inside the 10-yard line. He fumbled when tackled, however, and Dave Robinson recovered for the Packers on the five. Green Bay easily ran out the clock. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - original, 26 minutes (Quality 9) - Added June, 2009



(11-05-67) Green Bay Packers @ Baltimore Colts - Green Bay turned back the clock on Johnny Unitas, but Unitas turned the tables on the Packers. Unitas, who fumbled away Baltimore's last hope for the 1966 National Football League title when the Packers caught him on the run. won a frantic fourth-down foot race in this rematch and then pitched the unbeaten Colts to a 13-10 comeback triumph over the defending NFL champs. With less than two minutes to play and the Colts behind 10-6, Unitas, forced out of his pocket by the Packer rush, scrambled through a patch of daylight and picked up six vital yards for a first down on the Green Bay 23-yard line. On the next play, the magnificent quarterback fired a touchdown strike to Willie Richardson, ending the Colts' five-game losing streak against Green Bay and keeping them perfect. Unitas' second TD pass in the final two minutes, after rookie Rich Volk recovered Lou Michael's onside kick, avenged a 14-10 loss to the Packers at Baltimore last December, a loss that eliminated the Colts from the Western Conference race. The Packers stymied Unitas through three quarters and built a 10-0 lead on Don Chandler's 49-yard field goal and Bart Starr's 31-yard pass to Donny Anderson. Unitas got the Colts back in the game on a 10-yard payoff pass to Alex Hawkins with 2:19 to go in the final period. Michaels flubbed the extra point conversion, then sliced a short kickoff. Volk fell on the ball at the Green Bay 34 and the Colts put over the winning touchdown with 1:28 on the clock. - NFL "GOTW" highlights from game - (25 mins) original

After being thoroughly embarassed by the lowly Colts, Green Bay staged a better fight in the locker room than they did on the field. Reporters standing outside the Packers' dressing room doors at the Hoosier Dome after the game could hear shouts of obscenities and the sounds of a scuffle, but it wasn't until a day later that they learned what had triggered the mayhem. Virgil Knight, one of Gregg's more volatile assistants, had thrown a full can of Coke at the head of linebacker Mike Douglass.

With the Colts trailing 14-3 in the fourth quarter, Trudeau got hurt and Hogeboom replaced him. He threw two touchdown passes to seal up a comeback win.

(11-16-97) Green Bay Packers @ Indianapolis Colts - The Indianapolis Colts finally found a team they could beat and it turned out to be the defending Super Bowl champions. Cary Blanchard kicked a 20-yard field goal as time expired to give the Colts a 41-38 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. It was the Colts' first victory this season but the third game-winning field goal by Blanchard against a defending Super Bowl champion in three years. With the Colts lined up at the Packers' 3-yard line, the game winner was nothing more than an extra-point kick, a gimme. "I'm not going to miss an extra point. I've never missed an extra point," Blanchard said. The Colts moved 72 yards in the final 5:19 after Green Bay tied the game 38-38 on Brett Favre's second touchdown pass to Antonio Freeman. Paul Justin, who passed for a career-high 340 yards, completed four straight passes on the winning drive. His 27- and 28-yarders to Ken Dilger took the Colts to the Packers 1 with just under two minutes to go. Instead of trying for a touchdown, Justin dropped to his knee on three straight plays, forcing Green Bay to use its last time out and running the clock down to three seconds. Blanchard, whose field goals beat San Francisco two years ago and Dallas last year, then kicked the game-winner as time ran out. The Colts stormed onto the field in celebration. - (Quality 8.5)

(12-05-99) Indianapolis Colts @ Miami Dolphins - After the debacle that was the first Dolphins/Colts game of the season, the Colts were hungry for revenge and their first division title since 1987. The Colts jumped out to an early 17-3 lead thanks in part to an insane run by Edgerrin James. The Dolphins battled back and the game was largely back and forth all day with the Colts staying just a step ahead. With just seconds to go, Marino put the Fins in position for a Mare field goal to tie the game. Manning got the ball with 29 seconds to play and two time outs. After a couple of quick strikes and timeouts, Vanderjagt banged home a massive 53 yarder at the gun to win the game.

(11-19-00) Indianapolis Colts @ Green Bay Packers - Peyton Manning makes his first trip to Lambeau field and gets to play in snow flurries and bitter cold - Bill Schroeder chewed up the Colts for 155 yards through the air and Ahman Green battered them for 153 yards on the ground in spectacular individual performances. What appeared likely to end in blow-out fashion ended with Green Bay marching down the field to wind down the game's final minutes and keep the red-hot Colts offense from having a chance to take the lead. After quarterback Peyton Manning found Jerome Pathon in the end zone to put the Colts within two points with just over two minutes remaining in the game, the Packers took control at their own 31-yard line. Instead of limiting the offense to rushing plays in order to take time off the clock, the Packers aggressively came out firing with a 22-yard completion to Schroeder as the two-minute warning approached. After a pass interference penalty was called on the Colts at the Indianapolis 47, the Packers then began pounding the line of scrimmage with Green. His consecutive runs of 19, 4, 5 and 2 yards left Green Bay with a first down at the Indianapolis 6-yard line, and Brett Favre was able to kneel down to use the final seconds and give his team a win. Refs make a horrible call at the end of first half that prevented the Packers from scoring. - Includes commercials (Quality 8.5)

In overtime, the Colts never miss kicker does just that, and it leads to a dramatic ending when Miami RB Lamar Smith (40-209-2, an NFL Record for carries in a playoff game, and the second highest total rushing ever in a playoff game) breaks several tackles on 17 yard game winning run for 23-17 Dolphin win at home! - Upgraded August, 2008

(11-30-03) New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts - Homefield advantage was on the line as the 9-2 New England visited the 9-2 Colts. In the third the Patriots were ahead 31-10 and seemingly in control when turnovers and stellar Colts play allowed them to crawl back in the game. After breaking a 31-31 tie with a TD to Deoin Branch, the Colts first cut the lead to 38-34 with a fieldgoal and then drove for the game winning score late in the 4th. With under 20 seconds to go, the Colts had a first and goal from the 1. The Patriots defense withstood the Colts offense on the first three plays.

(09-09-04) Indianapolis Colts @ New England Patriots - In a game that saw the Colts seize control early behind Edgerrin James running, the Patriots would storm back in the second half to take a 27-17 lead into the fourth. Much like the game 10 months earlier, the Colts would mount a comeback and were driving late for the win or a game tying field goal. On 3rd and 8 from the Patriots 17, Willie McGinest, again would make a game saving play. This time he came off the line unchecked and sacked Peyton Manning for a 12 yard loss pushing any possible FG attempt from 34 to 47 yards. Mike Vanderjagt would miss his first kick since December 2002. (Quality 9) - Added September, 2008

Brett Favre threw for 358 yards and four TDs and the Packers rallied from an 18-point halftime deficit to within a touchdown. But the play of the game was made by two defensive backs, Jason David and Nick Harper. They ended what could have been a game-tying drive by the Packers with 6:21 left. David stripped Javon Walker after he caught Favre's pass just across midfield and Harper returned it to the Green Bay 36. That set up Edgerrin James' 1-yard touchdown run with 1:49 left to seal the win. - (Quality 9)

(01-15-06) 2005 AFC Divisional - Pittsburgh Steelers vs Indianapolis Colts - Ten point underdog Pittsburgh goes to Indianapolis and pulls off a shocker in a Classic! What a game with an Amazing Finish! Steelers use harassing blitzing defense to stifle top seed Colts awesome offense, and key passing combined with great running to build 21-3 lead after three quarters. But suddenly QB Peyton Manning gets hot for the Colts and begins an impossible comeback after dramatically waving off the punting unit to go for it on fourth down from his own 40, and he gets them to within three points! But two crucial 4th & Inches conversions by Pittsburgh used up important time, a controversial Steeler interception was over turned, a big Pitt defensive stand when up only 21-18 with a minute left that gives them the ball at the Indianapolis two, and seemingly the game to Pittsburgh. But then Jerome Bettis fumbles, and the Colts return it out to midfield with QB Ben Roethlisberger making a game saving shoe string tackle, to me thus coining this game "The Immaculate Tackle"! Manning then quickly maneuvers it to the Pitt 28, just missing a game winning pass in the end zone, before the Colts kicker amazingly misses the tying FG. What more could a game give you for excitement???!!!???

(10-29-06) WK 8 Indianapolis Colts @ Denver Broncos - Last team with the ball wins sounds like a cliché, but it summed up so many games the 2006 Colts played. This late afternoon classic was no exception. The Broncos had the lead at the half, 14-6. The Colts went on a long drive to start the second half, and then converted a short field after recovering a Jake Plummer fumble for a 20-14 lead. The infamous run defense then almost took over for the Colts. They gave up a rushing score at the end of the 3rd quarter and trailed again 21-20. Vinatieri nailed a long FG, but the Broncos rammed the ball down the field for a 28-23 lead with less than 7 to play. Manning and Wayne responded by completely abusing a young Denver corner and with 3:56 to play, the Colts took a 31-28 lead after a 2 point conversion. Gilbert Gardner struck back by abandoning his hole and letting Denver rip off a 48 yard run. Fortunately, the defense stiffened, and Denver settled for a long field goal and a tie with just 1:49 to play. 1:49 is waaaay to long to give #18 however, and unfortunately for the Denver, Darrent Williams was still on the field. Manning calmly moved the Colts down field to set up a game winning field goal try from Adam Vinatieri with just two seconds on the clock. By the time the dust had settled, the Colts were 7-0 for the second straight season. - Includes commercials (Quality 8.5) - added May, 2011

Their 18-point comeback was the largest ever in an NFL conference championship game, and tied the record for the fourth largest NFL postseason comeback. The Colts' win was especially satisfying coming against New England, who had eliminated them from the playoffs in the 2003 AFC title game and the 2004 divisional round.

(11-04-07) New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts - In a game that for the first time in NFL History matched teams with at least 7-0 or better records and was one of the most hyped regular season games ever, but it actually lived up to its billing. A classic comeback victory lead by QB Tom Brady (who had three more TD Passes to give him 33, a Patriot record, as he continues his march towards Peyton Manning's all time season record of 49 in a single season). For Indianapolis, the star of the game was RB Joseph Addai (26-112 rushing as well as 5-114-1 receiving) who became the first player ever in their long storied history of stars to have a 100 yards rushing and receiving in the same game. - Added January, 2008

Manning led the Colts down the field, moving the ball 70 yards and converting a 4th down and 5 with a 16-yard completion to Clark. But he threw three consecutive incompletions from the Chargers 7-yard line, turning the ball over on downs. Indianapolis' defense managed to force a punt, but the Colts turned the ball over on downs again with 53 seconds left and San Diego ran out the rest of the clock. - Added October, 2008
