Then the delay of game boosted the available yardage from 90 to 95 and Manning threw for all 95 of it. A 4-yard run by <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9616" shape="rect" target="_new">Joseph Addai</a> was also undone by a 4-yard sack.</p> <p><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5718" shape="rect" target="_new">Jim Sorgi</a> may well take over the next time the Colts have the ball.</p>
