NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The unbeaten Colts were trying to keep take a stranglehold on the AFC South Sunday night.
Peyton Manning is battling Drew Brees for NFL MVP, and, with help from former Cougar Austin Collie, he didn't disappoint tonight.

Then, early in the third quarter, it was Manning to Collie again for a 9 yard TD.
Austin ended the game with eight catches, 97 yards, and two touchdowns.
