Peyton isn't used to being sacked much but the Birds showed him the floor three times Sunday including this painful looking "Tapp" out.

In a game full of injuries and penalties both were on display late in the first half when Colts wideout Austin Collie was knocked out after a penalized helmet-to-helmet hit. Collie was down for a while but eventually was up and moving in the locker room, according to his team.
