The Second Quarter

The Colts had the ball at the end of the first quarter so they got to keep the ball.  The rain was pouring down so the ball and uniforms were soaking wet.  At the end of the drive for the Colts, Adam Vinateiry kicked a field goal to put the score 14-9.  The Bears punted on their next drive.   At 9:57 left in the first half,  the Colts started another drive and scored a TOUCHDOWN when Dominic Rhodes went to the endzone.  The extra point was good, to put the score 16-14.   A couple of drives later, Peyton Manning  threw to his least favorite target and the receiver fumbled!  Chicago recovered the ball.  During the next play, Chicago funbled and the Colts recovered!  On the last play of the first half Adam Vinatiery missed a 36 yard field goal when the ball went wide left.

The Third Quarter

The Colts got the ball.  They had the ball for 7 minutes and 26 seconds.  The drive ended with Adam Vinatiery’s 24 yard field goal to put the score 19-14.  The Bears punted again and the Colts got the ball.  Adam Vinatiery kicked a 20 yard field goal to put the score 22-17.  The Colts had 7 first downs, the Bears had 2.

The Fourth Quarter

The Colts continued their dirve and Marvin Harrison was injured, but his return was probable.  The Colts punted and the Bears got the ball.  Rex Grossman threw to Mushan Muhammad and was intercepted by Kelvin Haden.  He ran 56 yards.  TOUCHDOWN!  The Bears called a challenge and the Colts won that challenge.  Kelvin Haden had his first career inerception.  Rex Grossman intercepted one more time.  The Colts won in the last seconds.
