INDIANAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings owned the fourth quarter, but Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri had the last word. Vinatieri kicked a 53-yard field goal with eight seconds left to give the Colts a 23-20 win over the Vikings on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was the first win for Colts coach Chuck Pagano and rookie quarterback Andrew Luck. For Luck, it was a late-game win reminiscent of former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. The Colts' winning drive came after Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder had led Minnesota to two touchdowns in the last 10 minutes of the game to tie it 20-20 after the Colts had led most of the way. "We'll never apologize for winning, no matter how we get it done,"? Pagano said. "We fought and found a way to win it. The future Hall of Famer (Vinatieri) came through in the clutch."?

Conservative play calling that prevented the Colts offense from moving the ball until the last drive of the game kept a shaky, inconsistent...

The Colts were destroyed by the Chicago Bears last weekend in the opener and everyone thought the Bears were the best team in the NFL. Green Bay proved that the Bears are a long way from that on Thursday night as they manhandled Chicago for four quarters.

Paul Kuharsky of ESPN says that he loved Luck's pocket presence and mobility during the Vikings matchup, among other notes.
