Conservative first half hardly filled with big plays

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky
INDIANAPOLIS -- In their last two games the Colts managed to get only four passes combined to Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison.

Tonight's been a different story just in the first half, as Wayne has three catches for 39 yards and Harrison three for 36 with the Colts up 7-6.

Peyton Manning's been efficient, hitting on 14 of 18 passes. On the game's lone touchdown drive he was 8-for-8.

And he's gotten bigger chunks than New England's Matt Cassel, who's programmed to take small bites and who's 8-for-9. While Manning's got connections of 26, 17 and 17 yards, Cassel's got three passes of 11 yards.
