Rhodes got better numbers splitting time with Addai, Sanders gave Manning two extra chances to score and stopped Bears on multiple occasions. Manning got average numbers for a QB on a winning team, allthough he did have a decent completion percentage his interception cancels out his TD, and there is not much left to talk about. If it werent for the running game the colts wouldnt have been any better than Chicago, doesnt make a strong case for Peyton to be MVP. You add in the fact that Indi had the ball most of the game, and it almost looks bad that Peyton only had one TD. The "MVP
" of the game could only score once with a ton of chances?
