It's always a penalty for illegal touching when the punting team downs the ball. Resulting in stopped clock and possession to receiving team.  Because it was the last play and defense committed foul the offense gets an untuned down

Does this mean if the receiving team never touches it and the defense never touches it, the game never ends?

No the official would rule play dead. Game would be over.

I thought the penalty was only because the clock had run to 0... 

 

Great win... It got ugly with some turnovers and lucky flags, but we generally played better than the score, especially in the first half before the OL injuries.

 

T.Y. and Frank Gore are gamers. Walden was impressive along with Geathers. Davis played a gutsy game coming off an injury.  Favorite play ( other than the 60 something yard TD) was the three man pressure that tore through the Bolts' line and ended in a sack. Mathis fell down, but it was still a great effort.

Great come from behind win by the Colts with Andrew Luck's 63-yard touchdown pass to T. Y. Hilton. :cheer::coltslogo::rock: That play was spontaneous , and I admit I saw the play as it happened and it even surprised me when T.Y. both capitilized the play, and ran it through the end zone, for the 26-22 home victory, in front of their home fans at LOS (the building).

 

Also the 'Pagano Bowl' is officially in the past earlier today., and now Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano can go back and talk family with his brother, Chargers Defensive Coordinator John Pagano.

 

Now the Colts prepare both practice their next game, and make the necessary travel arrangements for their NFL International Game with the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium, and televised back next Sunday morning in the US.

 

Enjoy your week in the meantime, see you here next Sunday morning for the Colts vs. Jaguars contest at London, before their bye week. and GO COLTS!!    :coltslogo:  :1colts:   :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:

    • Keep in mind too, the more wins from here on out, will only increase the odds keeping Pagano.         
    • I watch them a bit. I can certainly concede that Hill is the most talented of the three and may be better than I gave him credit for in my post...   Hunt is not that great, imo. He has had a very good season, especially for a rookie, but I think he has overachieved quite a bit. He doesn't have the elite power/speed combo of guys like Fournette or Zeke. I think he's an average (or slightly above) running back in a very good situation. I don't think he would be rated so highly if he ran for Cleveland or Indy.   Just my opinion, though. I'm not married to it, either... I'm sure I've made many foolish statements about young players in the past.    I was just trying to illustrate that the OC in KC (is his name Nagy?) is part of an offense that is playing better than the sum of its parts. How much of that can be attributed to him and how much is Andy Reid is a fair question, though. New HC candidates are always a gamble, though. 
    • Whichever NFC team that has the best interior pass rush will have the best chance to beat the Pats.  It's their Achilles heel.  
    •   I am NOT a fan of tanking.   I argued on behalf of trying to win the last two games of both the 15 and 16 seasons.    The argument was we had a chance to go 8-8 so you absolutely try to win those games.     5 straight seasons without a losing season is a good achievement for any franchise.   But now that we are overwhelmingly likely to finish below 500,  then I feel free to say that while I don't want us to tank,  I will not be upset with any loss.     Even if we lose them all.      I know this is a nuanced position,   but I won't be upset with any losses in the last six games.   All that said....   We stand a decent chance to win a number of these games.     Only the J'Ville game feels like a likely loss.   The other five feels like we've got a decent shot at each.   We should be competitive in those five games.    So, we might surprise to the upside and win more than we might expect.     The team is playing better.   By group,  the defense is getting better,   the special teams are solid,  and even the offense is a little more cohesive and efficeint.     And each unit might get a little better down the stretch.   We might surprise a lot of people,  including ourselves.
