Colts and Saints remain Perfect

By Kristofor Molson     Dec 6, 2009 in Sports
The Indianapolis Colts remain perfect with little resistance from the Tennessee Titans and the New Orleans Saints against the Washington Redskins pull it out in overtime.
The duel of the unbeaten teams were in full effect on this early Sunday morning as the Tennessee Titans went to Indianapolis to take on the Colts and New Orleans Saints travelled to Washington to play against the Redskins. Both teams are on the verge making NFL history if both teams can finish the regular season undefeated.
The Colts handled the Titans easily and ended Titan's quarterback Vince Young's nine game winning streak and almost stopped the Titans chances of making it to the playoffs. Peyton Manning continued his bid for this season's NFL's Most Valuable Player passing for 270 yards and 1 touchdown as he completed 24 out of 37 passes. The Colts had help from their premier runner Joseph Addai as he added 2 touchdowns on 79 rushing yards.
The defense of the Indianapolis Colts played good keeping Tennessee's leading rusher Chris Johnson out of the end zone and holding the Titan's receiving core to under a hundred yards receiving. The Colt's defense also intercepted one pass and caused 3 fumbles.
Things weren't that easy in Washington as the Redskins gave the Saints more than they can handle as they took them to overtime. The Saints played from behind the whole game and was able to tie the game after Redskins kicker Suisham missed a 23 yard chip shot.
Drew Brees drove his team down the field and threw a game tying 53 yard touchdown pass to receiver Meachem. The Redskins were looking to take the lead with the game winding down, but quarterback Jason Campbell was intercepted by linebacker Vilma.
The two teams went in to overtime and the Redskins got the ball first and they lost the ball due to a Mike Seller's fumble. Drew Brees showed he should be this years Most Valuable Player as he completed 35 of 49 passes for 419 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception.
The Colts will try to keep this winning streak going as they play the Denver Broncos next and the Saints head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons.
