Super Bowl: Indianapolis beats Chicago 29-17

February 5, 2007 05:27

The Indianapolis Colts outplayed the Chicago Bears 29-17 in a wet and wild Super Bowl on Sunday. A team built for indoors found its footing on a rain-soaked track and its star quarterback, Peyton Manning, proved he can indeed win the big game - the NFL's biggest game. The first half was marred by six turnovers, three for each team. Even American football's most clutch kicker, Adam Vinatieri, missed a chip-shot field goal, and an extra point attempt was botched, too. The second half wasn't quite so ugly, but when much-maligned Bears quarterback Rex Grossman's wobbler was picked off and returned 56 yards for a touchdown by Kelvin Hayden with 11:44 remaining, it was over. Chicago, which led the league in takeaways this season, finished with five turnovers, including two interceptions by Grossman.
