    Some quality context from ESPN Research on the Colts' 10-6 win Sunday in Cleveland: It was just the second time that a Colts team quarterbacked by Peyton Manning won a game without scoring an offensive touchdown. The only time came on Sept. 7, 2003, also in Cleveland against the Browns. The Colts won the game, 9-6.

    The Colts current five-game winning streak has featured wins all by six points or less.

    The last team to do it was the 1992 Colts (which finished the season 9-7 and didn't make the playoffs), and the team before them was the 1986 Giants, which went on to finish 14-2 and win Super Bowl XXI.
