After Ravens cornerback Chris McAlister was burned for a 67-yard touchdown pass from Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to wide receiver Marvin Harrison at 9:43, it seemed the air went out of the Ravens' defense. Manning and Harrison, who have combined for 110 career touchdown passes, might not have had one any easier. Manning hooked up with Reggie Wayne for a 22-yard touchdown with 2:43 left in the quarter, and the Colts added a field goal shortly thereafter for a 17-0 lead.

Colts: Harrison 67 pass from Manning (Vinatieri kick), 9:43.

Colts: Wayne 22 pass from Manning (Vinatieri kick), 2:43

Colts: FG Vinatieri 37, 0:38.


Colts 24 Ravens 0

The Ravens were able to keep the Colts' high-octane offense off the field, controlling the ball for 8:15 of the second quarter, but the Colts still managed to score. Manning threw his third touchdown pass of the game, again connecting with Harrison. If their first TD of the game was one of their easiest, this one ranks in the top five. McAlister didn't have a chance.

Colts: Harrison 5 pass from Manning (Vinatieri kick), 1:48.


Colts 31 Ravens 3

The Ravens finally got on the board with Matt Stover's field goal with 1:15 left in the third quarter. It came after the Colts added another touchdown, this one on a 1-yard run by Dominic Rhodes on the first drive of the second half.

Colts: Rhodes 1 run (Vinatieri kick), 9:25.

Ravens: Stover 37 FG, 1:15.


Colts 31 Ravens 3

Fortunately for the Ravens, there was no scoring by the Colts in this quarter. Consider it a gift from Tony Dungy, although a long touchdown pass was called back after a holding call on the Colts.
