I believe that there is an occurring theme with the Broncos vs Colts in the past. They seemed to be a lot of defensive battles. This one is no exception as the Broncos and Colts battled until the end.
The Broncos opened up the scoring with a touchdown, but missed on the extra point(s) to take a 6-0 lead. Thanks to the Colts defense, that would be the only touchdown the team from Mile High would score in that entire game.
The Colts would score on a field goal from Raul Allegre to bring the game closer. Then the Rich Karlis show began. He would lead the Denver Broncos to nine unanswered points from the second to the fourth quarter, kicking one field goal each. That would bring the score to 15-3 at that point.
Indianapolis would score on a Mike Pagel touchdown pass to bring the score within five points. However, the Broncos defense held on for the 15-10 win.
Despite the three field goals, Rich Karlis had an off day. He was 3-of-5 on field goal attempts and missed his extra point attempt. That is an extra seven points unaccounted for. Luckly, the defense limited the Colts to 237 total yards and forced three turnovers.
