Lack of Ball Possession Doesn't Stop Manning In Win Over Phins

By Dustin Pollack     Sep 22, 2009 in Sports
With 3:44 seconds left in the fourth quarter, Indianapolis Colts reigning MVP quarterback, Peyton Manning put together a quick 80-yard drive to put the Colts up 27-23.
Although Manning stole the show late in the fourth quarter, the game had a ton of action from the Dolphins offense as well.
Courtesy of Miami's infamous "wildcat offense" running backs, Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams were able to rush for a combined 205 yards and two touchdowns (both by Brown).
Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington looked decent in the loss completing 33 passes for for 183 yards but he was unable to manufacture any big plays and that is partially at the fault of his receivers. With 35 seconds left in the fourth quarter Pennington aired out a pass to Ted Ginn in the endzone but the ball slipped through the receivers finger tips.
Colts tight end, Dallas Clarke set a career high for receiving yards tonight with 183 including an 80 yard reception for a touch down on the very first play of the game.
Even though the Colts offense only had possession of the football for just over 14 minutes (less then 1/4 of the game) they were still able to improve to 2-0 this season.
As for the Dolphins, they fall to 0-2 and look for their first win Sunday against the the San Diego Chargers.
