First quarter


The Colts’ offense was as advertised – efficient and effective. The first time they got the ball, the Colts drove 80 yards in 10 plays to a 1-yard touchdown run by Donald Brown. Peyton Manning was 4 of 4 for 57 yards, including 10-yarder to TE Dallas Clark on third-and-2 and a25-yarder to WR Pierre Garcon to the Seahawks’ 20.

The Seahawks’ offense? On their second possession, they drove to the Colts’ 26, but then lost yards on three consecutive plays: RB Julius Jones was dropped for a 4-yard loss as DT Eric Foster shot through a gap; WR Deion Branch took a pass on the right side and ran back to his left, but was stopped a 3-yard loss; and, on third down, QB Seneca Wallace scrambled to his right and went out of bounds for a 5-yard sack.
