Q3 15:00: Eddie Royal is back deep to receive the kickoff to start the second half.
Q3 14:54: Royal picks up 21 yards on the return out to the 19-yard line. The offense is back on the field, and Kyle Orton hands off to Knowshon Moreno to start the drive. The rookie carries it to the 24-yard line. On second down, Orton finds Brandon Marshall, who tries to spin out of tackle. He is brought down, however, after a gain of three. Now it’s 3rd-and-2, and Orton is in the shotgun. He drops back and fires to Royal, but the receiver can’t haul it in before being tackled. The incompletion brings in Mitch Berger for a punt. T.J. Rushing calls for a fair catch at the 19-yard line — it’s a 54-yard punt by Berger.
Q3 13:40: Peyton Manning takes the snap under center before faking a handoff and dropping back. He fires a pass toward Dallas Clark under pressure by Vonnie Holliday. The pass falls incomplete, as Ty Law was right there with the coverage on Clark.
Q3 13:13: A two-yard run by Joseph Addai brings up 3rd-and-8 for the Colts. Elvis Dumervil chases Manning, who lets loose a pass for Clark. It is hauled in momentarily, but Darcel McBath bursts in for a big hit to break up the pass. That brings up fourth down for the Colts, and Royal is deep to receive the punt. He finds a little space after the 50-yard punt, picking up five yards after reversing field. The offense will take over on its own 34-yard line.
