SAN DIEGO -- There was no end of regulation magic for the Colts in Qualcomm Stadium this time.

To top the Chargers again and advance to the divisional round of the AFC playoffs, the Colts are going to have to get it done in overtime.

Peyton Manning had 24 seconds with two timeouts and the ball at the Colts' 19-yard line. Expectations are that if he's got the ball at the end he'll find a way, but with those time and yardage constraints and the Chargers defense playing well, it was too much too ask.

So we'll have a coin flip and sudden death in a game that's delivering all the drama the NFL can ask for and more than fans of the Colts and Chargers may be able to stand.

Remember, all replay reviews are initiated from the booth in extra time.
