Morning Headlines: Colts 35, Patriots 34

Most mornings, we'll lead off the day with some AM headlines -- but not your traditional ones. Rather we'll focus on one game or story and write headlines that are completely inconsequential and insignificant to the outcome of the game. We'll give a few examples and then you'll play in the comments. Best headline (read: the one that makes us laugh the hardest) will get a shoutout in this space the next day. We'll provide the box score for the game as that can lend itself to plenty of content. Let's have some fun. The more insignificant, the better!

[Indianapolis-New England box score]

-Stover's kick lifts Colts over Pats

-New England 0-1 on 4th downs in road loss

-Addai, Colts gallop over Pats

That was a fantastic game and a very ballsy -- and puzzling -- decision to go for it on 4th-and-2 from New England's own 28. They punt the ball they probably win. But they were playing to win the game. Gotta like that, but maybe not in that situation. Wow. New England dominated that game.
