The second half started the way the first half ended – with Peyton Manning leading a long scoring drive. This one was 80 yards in 12 plays, and ended with Joseph Addai running up the gut of the Seahawks defense for a 12-yard TD that made it 28-3. Manning checked to the play at the line of scrimmage. Before handing the ball to Addai, Manning seven more passes, in eight attempts, as the redundancy rolled on.
The Seahawks got the ball when CB Ken Lucas intercepted a Manning pass with 3½ minutes left in the quarter. But, after driving to the Colts 36, DE Robert Mathis slapped the ball from Wallace’s grasp just after he had eluded a possible sack. MLB Freddy Keiaho recovered to end the Seahawks’ possession.
