 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Colts running back Joseph Addai didn't care that he made team history on Sunday.
Addai became the first Colts player to gain more than 100 yards both rushing and receiving in a game in the 24-20 loss to New England. Even Indianapolis stars Marshall Faulk and Edgerrin James never accomplished the feat.
``It tells you a lot about the offense and what we're trying to do, but a loss is a loss,'' he said.
Addai ran for 112 yards on 26 carries. He also caught five passes for 114 yards, including a dazzling 73-yard catch and run that gave the Colts a 13-7 halftime lead.
Addai had 107 yards receiving and 80 yards rushing before halftime. He was held to 32 yards on 11 carries and one catch for seven yards in the second half.
His most memorable play was the touchdown reception. The Colts' Antoine Bethea had just intercepted a pass by New England's Tom Brady, and the Colts took over at their 2-yard line with 1:46 left in the first half.
The Colts moved the ball out to their 27-yard line before Manning found Addai on a short pass in the middle of the field. Addai juked his way around several defenders to get to the sideline, faked as if he was running out of bounds to stop the clock, then cut back toward the middle of the field. He outraced the rest of New England's defense and reached the end zone with 13 seconds left in the second quarter.
``It really was just a situation where there were just a couple of seconds left and I had some key blocks,'' he said. ``None of that really matters.''
