The Colts started the third quarter with up 9-3, but the Jets opened the third quarter with a 106 yard kickoff return by Brad Smith to take a 10-9 lead.
Colts' running back Donald Brown scored on a 1 yard touchdown run to take a 15-10 third quarter lead and then Coach Caldwell pulled the starters. The New York Jets scored the last 19 points of the game to finish off the Colts and their perfect season.
Jets' quarterback Mark Sanchez was 12 for 19 with 106 passing yards and Peyton Manning threw for 192 yards on 14 of 21 passing and neither quarterback threw for a touchdown. Running back Thomas Jones rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries and fellow tailback Shonn Greene helped out with 16 carries for 95 yards to lead the Jets to a 29-15 victory.
