Jets Beat Colts

It's not often I'm happy for a New York sports team. But congratulations to the New York Jets who handed the Indianapolis Colts their first defeat in the 2009 NFL season. The Jets beat the Colts 29-15. Curiously, Colts QB Peyton Manning and most of the other starters were pulled during the 3rd quarter with a 15-10 lead.

If the Colts had gone undefeated and went on the win Super Bowl then Colts fans would never let New England Patriots fans hear the end of it. Two years ago, the Pats went 16-0 only to be upended by the New York Giants (led by Peyton's younger brother, Eli) in Super Bowl XLII. The 1972 Miami Dolphins are the only team to be undefeated in the regular season and then go on to win the Super Bowl.
