COLTS INVOKE MERCY RULE IN VICTORY OVER BALTIMORE

FITSNews – December 9, 2007 – After amassing a 44-7 lead early in the third quarter, the Indianapolis Colts rested starters like Peyton Manning and Joseph Addai for the last twenty minutes of their 44-20 thumping of the Baltimore Ravens last night.

NBC’s showcase Sunday night game was billed as competitive contest, but Manning and the Colts’ dominance made it anything but, leaving announcers Al Michaels and John Madden to contemplate Madden’s disdain for shellfish, among other banalities. Of course despite its lack of “viewer benefit,” the win clinched a sixth-consecutive playoff berth for Indianapolis (11-2) and featured the 300th touchdown pass of Manning’s illustrious career, tying him for fourth on the all-time NFL list.

The drubbing also ended on a high note for the 4-9 Ravens, as last year’s Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith made his NFL debut, completing 3 of 5 passes for 33 yards and running for a six-yard touchdown on Baltimore’s final drive of the game.

This kid’s gonna be good, people.

We actually prefer a mercy killing, with blood. … Quoth the Raven: Never more, Never more.
