Simpson an unlikely Colts hero

JACKSONVILLE -- The Colts return game is the one answer available when people ask for a weakness.

At least until Chad Simpson just took 13 seconds for a 93-yard touchdown return that put Indy ahead 14-10. It came right after the Jaguars had driven for a go-ahead David Garrard-to-Maurice Jones Drew 9-yard touchdown pass.

The NFL Network quickly told us it was the Colts’ first return for a touchdown since 2004, when Dominic Rhodes did it against San Diego.

When the Colts get a huge play like that, the successful clock-milking of their opponent becomes irrelevant in a hurry.
