Former Purple Raider catches game-winner for Colts

Mount Union's Pierre Garcon caught a short pass from Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and turned it into a 48-yard touchdown with 3:18 remaining to give the Colts a 27-23 win over the host Miami Dolphins last night on Monday Night Football.

Manning had thrown to Garcon the play before, but it was out of reach of the second-year receiver. The next time at the line, Manning called an audible and moments later, Garcon was racing down the sideline for his first NFL touchdown.

The two-time All-American at Mount Union was the first Purple Raider since Corl Zimmerman of Dayton Triangles in 1929 to start an NFL game.
