Peyton needed to win this game

The true greats take do-overs like the one offered Peyton Manning and the Colts today and deliver. After giving the Steelers the ball on their own 2 yard line with less than two minutes left, Pittsburgh's future hall-of-famer Jerome Bettis fumbled the ball, and for a flittering moment it looked like Indy was up to the challenge. Then on 2-and-2 and 3-and-2, Peyton goes long instead of getting extra yardage for an easier field goal. Then the kicker, statistically the most reliable in NFL history, kicked the 46-yard field goal so far wide it wasn't even suspenseful. From what I saw (the last 20 minutes), it was a great game with an anticlimactic ending!
