Colts Vs. Redskins: Adam Vinatieri Redeems Himself, Gives Colts 17-7 Lead

Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri had a chance to make up for his missed field goal on the last Colts drive. This time, he made it count.

Vinatieri nailed a 43-yard field goal, and the Colts now have a 17-7 lead. Vinatieri had missed a 38-yard field goal wide right last drive.

The Colts' drive was sustained by an incredible one-handed catch by Pierre Garcon. Garcon leaped to catch a Peyton Manning pass, snaring it with his right hand across his body in midair. The only catch that rivals it this year was Randy Moss' one-handed catch on Darrelle Revis of the Jets. 

The Redskins now have exactly two minutes to cut the deficit back to single digits.
