INDIANAPOLIS -- With the NFL season coming to a close with this weekend’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, we’ll put a wrap on the Indianapolis Colts' season by looking back at 10 key plays from their season.
Pryor single-handily kept the Raiders in the game during the season opener. He had the Colts off balanced by throwing for 217 yards and rushing for another 112 yards on 13 carries. Colts linebacker Robert Mathis said he ran “about 5.3 miles” chasing Pryor around the field.
Down 21-17 with only 73 seconds remaining, Pryor moved the Raiders down to the Colts’ 8-yard line when Mathis sacked him for a 16-yard loss, pushing Oakland back to the 24-yard line. After an incompletion on second down, Pryor tried to hit Rod Streater, but Bethea stepped in front of the pass and picked it off and immediately went to the ground, ending the possibility of the Raiders stealing the game.
