Feely miss, Manning TD pass give Colts lead

The Jets’ decision to attempt a long field goal backfired in the third quarter, giving the Colts a short field to drive for a go-ahead touchdown in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.

Jay Feely was way right on his 52-yard attempt — his second miss of the game — so the Colts took over at their 42. Eight pass plays later, Peyton Manning found Pierre Garcon on a 4-yard touchdown pass that gave Indianapolis a 20-17 lead.

That wasn’t the only hit the Jets took at the beginning of the second half. Rookie RB Shonn Greene went to the locker room with what the team called a rib injury. His return is questionable.

Greene rushed for 135 and 128 yards, respectively, in the Jets’ first two playoff games. He had 41 yards on 10 carries against the Colts before he was hurt.
