Super Bowl classic? Indy 17-16 thru 3

With 15 minutes to go in Super Bowl XLIV, only one point separates the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints as quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees prepare for a fourth-period shootout.

The Colts lead 17-16 and half the ball at their 29 as the fourth period begins.

The Saints opened the third period with an onside kick, which it recovered and converted to a touchdown on a screen pass from Drew Brees to running back Pierre Thomas. That gave New Orleans its first lead of the game 13-10.

The Colts answered back quickly, driving 76 yards for a touchdown behind Manning's passes to tight end Dallas Clark and the running of Joseph Addai, whose 4-yard TD run put the Colts ahead 17-13.

Garrett Hartley's 47-yard field goal with 2:01 remaining in the quarter cut the Indianapolis lead to 17-16 and set up a potential grand finale.
