well, the game is officially over. it began to feel likit was over after the colts took the opening kickoff, went 12 plays, 80 yards, 7-0. established early dominance and nevelet up. they win it 38-14. we're joined now by tony dungy or are we going to andrea first? she is down on the field and i will find out, along with e rest of you, who is with andrea. >> eddie: thank you very much, bob. peyton manning declined to be interviewed after this game so we
are pleased to have the defensive star dwight freeney
with us. now, why were you le to get to e manning the way that you did tonight? >> i think it has a lot to do with what we do every day. it's about training and practice d about the colts who are around here. we geafter quarterbacks is what we do. especially when we get leads. opportunity to make some plays happen. >> eddie: you anrobert mathis are the masters of the sack fumble. you had two tonight. how are you able to take advantage of particularly giants left tackle david diehl? >> i think every time we go after the quarterback, running back, we are trained to go ahead and cause that fumble. i think, you know, probably oginate lawrence taylor on that and i grew up watching him. robert does a great job. whenever we get an opportunity we try to strip the ball. >> eddie: uncharacteristic way to start the season last week with a loss. how important was it for you to come out strong from
the start? >> very important. especially a home game. we want to start off the season
on a good noit note. obviously, the first game didn't happen. why 16 games and opportunities to prove yourself. >> eddie: how do you build on tonight's win as you head to denver? >> hopefully, we correct our miskes that happen. >> eddie: what mistak did you see? >> in football you can find anything. i promise you on every play there is something you can correct. i'm sure we will go in on monday, morrow, correct our mistakes and move on. >> eddie: thanks for your time, dwight. appreciate it. bob, back to you. >> andrea, thanks very much. this was the scene after the game ended. eli manning on the short end. really on the shortnd. 38-14. being consoled with his parents archie and olivia after losing to the colts 38-14. as you all know, peyton manning is one of the most cooperative athletes in all of sports and availle in all of sports. he knew the questions most had to pertain to eli and figured
there was nothing he could say and only make it worse. my guess would be that is why peyton politely declined to speak to andrea kremer. tony, you old team had it going on tonight. what was your take? >> they really did. i can kind of sense that. talked to jim ldwell on friday. and he was more concerned about the offense than he was about the run defense. everyone else with was talking about the colts run defense and thweaknesses they had. but the offense wasn't sharp st week. he felt like they really practiced well, that peyton would be on top of his game and they came out with a first drive, w1scored. that really set the tempo because this team is so much different, when they are ahead than when they are playing from behind. >> they were ahead from the opening drive 80 yards, 12 plays, established a 7-0 lead and never looked back. they had to be aware after losing the texans last wee texans beat the redskins in overtime before this game began. so the texans are off to a 2-0 start.
had indy fallen to 0-2 they would have been in a hole early in the season. >> would have been a deep hole. i was very, very impressed with houston today. they followed up on a big emotional win with a different type of win. they are down 17 points on the road, were having trouble runni the ball and matt schaub had to bring them back and win this game. these are the type of gaps, the last two weeks, where they have got a sense now they are a very good football team and i don't think people are going to want to play them in the coming weeks. >> tony, you were peyton's coach the first time he faced his brother eli. this time eli ma much more success. a young pup then and people expected peyton to prevail. but looked at this as a rivalry being a little bit closer and all peyton tonight. knowing how close the brothers are, don't you suspect even though he happy with his own perform answer and his team's performance but in a sense it's a tough night for peyton manning. >> this is a very tough night.
i have watched peyton when i cched there and we would play a 4:00 game and' lie would play at 1:00. peyton would take the giants losses very hard. this is a game tt he is glad his team came out and played well, but he is very, very disappointed and hurt like that big brother for eli. he wanted him to play better and i don't think this was an easy game at all for peyton. >> tony, thanks a lot. talk to you next week. we turn to mike florio. tomorrow, on your monday ten-pack one of the big topics is the vikings who are 0-2 and look like a desperate 0-2. >> yeah, it's right, bob. a year they went all in to get brett favre to come back one more year and paid him a lot more money. the question is will they pay even money to attract vincent jackson from the chargers. san diego has until wednesday to trade vincent jackson and have hi miss only four games with his new team. and if the vikings are that team, they wouldn't have vincent
jackson until october 17th, so the dama could be done but i think brett favre is going to want some help there is too many injuries in that passing game and he doesn't trust any receivers that are healthy. >> anher disappointment has to be the cowboys who now face a tough game coming up against houston. how hot would the seat beneath wade phillips tail be if they lost and went to 0-3? >> well, if you fall 0-3 against your instate rivals and you get closer to the point where you're not going to make the playoffs, bob, sooner lat, you just have to wonder whether jerry jones looks to jason garrett, a guy who has been on that short list of head coaching candidates, the team's offensive coordinator and wonder whether giving the job to jason garrett mid season would be the spark to turn it around? jerry jes desperately wants to take his team to the super bowl that is hosting in the brand-new stadium. >> jerry jones is fond of wade philps and make a change reluctantly if it came to that but you're saying he would be
willing to make it in season, yes? >> i think th sense of wanting desperately to play ithat super bowl he is going to host to maybe make him doing something along those lines. the losses would have to pile up before he would get to that point, but hreally wants to play in that super bowl he is going to be hosting. >> mike, what are some of the key injuries you're going to be reporting on? >> for te cowboys, today, bob, you talked about it at halftime the ongoing concussion problem jason witten falls into the nfl procedures for getting clearance to come bacand play. it can be a week are it's up to the doctors at this point. jets cornerback darrelle revis aggravated a hamstring injury and have an mri tomorrow. jets are optimistic it's not serious. percy har harvin that brett favre needs to step up and perform he aggravated a hip injury and mri tomorrow and see how it turns out. >> check out more from mike on profootballtalk on nbcsports.com

this is the play of the game. >> play of the game. let's go to dwight freeney collection. >> i wish we had the package of this. dwight freeney and robert mathis the other the other side too much for david diehl. not a lot of help but made the decision they would leave their tackles alone. with this crowd noise, nearly impossible to get the two guys blocked. our plays of the game, there were a lot of those. >> big-time defense and offensively they got started the first drive of the game resulting in a donald brown touchdown.
and the colts who never led last week, never trailed tonight in a way they went. the other new york team, the jets a big win today in a tight game and then mark sanchez had a good second half. >> for mark sanchez, this was really a pressure-packed game. a lot of people questioning whether or not the cohing staff even believed in him enough to turn the ball over to him, let him tow the ball down the field. and that game was close in the fourth quarter and rex rn said, here you go, let's see what you got and he came through. >> 2-0 dolphins next week, too. our first sunday night game in miami. indianapolis wins it. the final score is 38-14. so it is the jets against the dolphins on "sunday night footba" one week from tonight.

will bypass most of the island but it will be really close and hurricane force winds extend outwards nearly 100 miles from the center. the entire island of bermuda is going to spend all night tonight being battered by hurricane force winds. that's 74 miles an hor, sustained winds with gusts still close to 100. it's not a good night in bermuda. here in washington all is clear and quiet outside. i'll show you the great satellite picture on igor in just a second. the high temperature made it up to 85 degrees after a 61 degree start early this morning. now here as we close in on the midnight ho, 73 degrees is our current temperature. winds have come back around to the northwest at 7 miles an hour. temperaturesç mostly in the 60 and low 70s. pretty much area wide at this point. there's the islan bermuda, there's this massive hurricane o here. igor. look how closehe eye wall is, just barely off to the west side of the island of bermuda. that's going be an ugly night in bermuda, no doubt about it.
