Sanders: 'I was thinking deja vu'

FOXBORO -- Moments before his game-clinching interception, James Sanders had a very bad flashback to last season. But he avoided reliving the nightmare of his team's collapse in Indianapolis, as Sanders intercepted Peyton Manning at the Patriots' 6-yard line with 31 seconds remaining to clinch the 31-28 win over the Colts on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. 

 

As was the case 12 months earlier when they lost 35-34, the Patriots had a 31-14 lead over the Colts in the fourth quarter, following a 25-yard Shayne Graham field goal with 10:23 left. But Manning threw a pair of touchdown passes over the middle to Blair White to draw the Colts within 31-28. And when the Patriots couldn't convert a first down, Manning got the ball back with 2:25 remaining. He drove the Colts to the Patriots' 24, before Sanders made a leaping interception of Manning's throw intended for Pierre Garcon. 

 

"For a minute, I was thinking deja vu...

Manning: Three INTs 'just inexcusable'

FOXBORO - Colts quarterback Peyton Manning met with the media following his team's 31-28 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. Manning threw for 396 yards and four touchdowns in the game but also tossed three interceptions, including a pick to James Sanders on the final drive of the game.

 

"I certainly didn't get everything into the throw that I wanted," said Manning of the Sanders INT. "Had a matchup we wanted, we were going to take a shot, don't have a reason why I couldn't get everything into the throw that I wanted."

 

Manning took all the blame for the loss, which leaves the Colts at 6-4 and tied for first place in the AFC South with the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

 

 

"To throw three interceptions against a good offense like that is just inexcusable," said Manning. "Anytime you play against Tom [Brady] and that offense you feel like you have to score points....

Wayne: Colts 'feel like' they're chasing Pats

FOXBORO -- Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne discussed the rivalry between the Patriots and Colts following his team's 31-28 loss.

 

"No one wants to fall, no one wants to be that team," said Wayne. "They won numerous Super Bowls, we're trying to win numerous. I believe, I don't want to speak for everybody, but me personally I feel like we're kind of chasing them a little bit."

 

 A disappointed Wayne added they have to beat the Patriots if they want to match them in Super Bowl victories. 

 

"To catch them you, got to beat them and each time we play them it's always tough, it's always one of those games. We almost got it done, but it's the way it goes. Hopefully we do what we got to do and we'll see them later."
 

Wayne finished Sunday's loss with eight catches for 107 yards and a touchdown.

 

 For more Patriots...

Brady: Happy with win, not execution

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was able to breathe a sigh of relief after James Sanders picked off a Peyton Manning pass in the final minute of the Patriots 31-28 victory over the Colts, but he wasn't happy about the way his offense executed down the stretch. "We knew it was going to come down to the end, like always," Brady said. "We started fast. Wish we would have executed a little better there in the second half. Any time you play these guys, you’ve got to play to the end." 

 

Still, Brady was obviously happy to get the win. "Believe me, we’re happy we won," he said. "You beat the Colts, you’ve got to be happy you won, but also it means that we got to do a better job there."

 

Brady noted the Pats failure to convert third downs late in the game, which opened the door for the Colts to rally from 31-14 down and gave them a chance to try and steal the win....

Belichick: 'We'll enjoy it for a couple hours'

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick described his team as "really happy to get the win" following its 31-28 victory over the Colts at Gillette Stadium. But while he was pleased to improve to 8-2, he also suggested that the quick turnaround prior to the Thursday game against the Lions left New England with little time to celebrate.

 

"It went right down to the wire. [The Colts] are an outstanding football team. They really do a good job," said Belichick. "Our guys just made a few more plays than they did today. Really happy to get the win. We’ve got a quick turnaround here. We can’t stay on this one very long, but we’ll enjoy it for a couple hours."

 

Belichick praised the play made by safety James Sanders on the Colts' final drive of the game, when he picked off a pass inside the Patriots' 10-yard-line to halt the Indianapolis drive and seal New England's victory.
