Week 16 Notes...

THE CLUTCH:

Down 16-12 with 1:56 remaining, Dan Orlovsky drove the Colts 78 yards, capped by a 1 yard touchdown pass to Reggie Wayne with 19 seconds remaining for the 19-16 victory. The key play on the drive was a 34 yard pass to Wayne on 3rd down to get the Colts within striking distance for the go-ahead score.

Down 13-6 with 2:57 to go, Kyle Orton led the Chiefs 80 yards, capped by a 3 yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe to tie the game at 13. After getting the ball back with 19 seconds remaining, Orton quickly threw two passes, one for 25, the next for 11, to get Kansas City into field goal position to win the game. However, Ryan Succop's 49 yard attempt was blocked. The Chiefs went on to lose in overtime because...

Carson Palmer threw a 53 yard strike to Darrius Heyward-Bey to set up the game-winning 36 yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski.

Up 27-24 with 1:35 remaining, Tom Brady converted a 3rd and 5 pass to Wes Welker for 6 yards to ice the game for the Patriots over the Dolphins.

Down 17-16 with just over 5 minutes remaining, Alex Smith threw a 41 yard pass to Michael Crabtree to set up what would be the game-winning 39 yard field goal by David Akers.

THE non-CLUTCH:

Down 23-16 with under three minutes to go, John Skelton threw an incomplete pass on 4th down for a loss of downs. Skelton got another opportunity with 48 seconds and no timeouts, but ultimately ran out of time, throwing the last play over the middle, instead of a Hail-Mary attempt.

Down 20-14 with 2:24 from their own 8 yard line, Mark Sanchez was sacked for a safety for the loss to the Giants.

Down 33-26 with 55 seconds and one timeout from their own 36, Rex Grossman got Washington into position for one last Hail-Mary attempt, but it fell incomplete for the loss to the Vikings.

Down 20-13 with 4:03 remaining on 4th and 5, Seneca Wallace threw an out-pass to Peyton Hillis, which had no chance of converting of a 1st down for the Browns loss.

Down 19-17 with just over a minute remaining, Tarvaris Jackson fumbled the ball on San Francisco's 48 yard line. Jackson got another opportunity with 41 seconds left from their own 26 yard line, but Jackson threw an incomplete pass on 4th and 2 for the loss of downs and game for Seattle.
