Indy's 40s brigade topples Atlanta

ATLANTA — The old geezers came through for the Colts.

Matt Hasselbeck, 40, threw two touchdown passes in relief of Andrew Luck and Adam Vinatieri, the oldest player in the league at 42, hit the winning kick to keep the Falcons slumping.

Indianapolis rallied from two two-touchdown deficits and linebacker D'Qwell Jackson, a former Seminole High standout, tied it with 10:07 remaining on a 6-yard interception return for a touchdown. Then Vinatieri won it, as he has done so many times, with a 43-yard field goal with 52 seconds left in his 300th career game.

"The guy is wearing Depends and he's just knocking down game-winners every week," said Colts punter Pat McAfee, who is Vinatieri's holder. "It's incredible to watch. I'm lucky to be teammates with that guy."

Atlanta started 5-0 but has lost four of five under new coach Dan Quinn.
