ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Edgerrin James scored on a four-inch plunge on fourth down with 1:38 left Sunday afternoon as Indianapolis rallied for a 17-14 victory over Buffalo.
With Buffalo's anemic offense finally coming to life, the Colts fell behind, 14-3, early in the fourth quarter, but James capped a 61-yard drive with a powerful 14-yard run and pounded into the end zone in the closing moments to make it 15-14.
After a successful two-point conversion, defensive end Chad Bratzke brushed off a block and hit Drew Bledsoe as he released the ball, allowing linebacker David Thornton to pick off the pass.
James rushed for 108 yards and Peyton Manning threw for 229 as the Colts guaranteed they would keep at least a share of the lead in the AFC South Division.
The Bills scored their first touchdown in 45 drives spanning five games, but still suffered their fourth straight loss.
