Colts Vs. Redskins: Adam Vinatieri Misses Field Goal After Long Colts Drive

Most teams reserve the hurry-up offense for drives late in a half. Not the Colts. Peyton Manning used a quick no huddle offense throughout this entire drive to limit the Redskins' ability to make substitutions and change defensive packages.

It worked. The Colts were able to string together 10 plays to bring the ball down to the Washington 20-yard line, but the ensuing field goal attempt by Adam Vinatieri sailed wide right.
