Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha said he felt as good as he has at any point since he sprained his right ankle Oct. 31.
Full health oftentimes isn't enough when it comes to covering Indianapolis Colts Pro Bowl wide receiver Reggie Wayne. Then again, not everyone has Asomugha's ability to shut down an opposing receiver.
Wayne made just one catch against Asomugha for 14 yards Sunday, and that came on a play in which Asomugha was picked by another Colts receiver and had no chance at making a play.
Wayne had been averaging seven catches and 89 yards per game this season. He caught only three for 40 yards of the six passes thrown his way Sunday. Asomugha broke up three passes and was called for holding once.
In 13 games, Asomugha has allowed only 10 receptions for 156 yards and no touchdowns on 27 passes thrown his way.
As expected, Colts quarterback Peyton Manning looked elsewhere in the passing game more times than not. His touchdown passes went to wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Blair White and tight end Jacob Tamme.
"He's kind of the offensive coordinator on the field, so it's like he sees you on defense and he can call whatever he wants to call," Raiders free safety Michael Huff said of Manning. "So, it's tough."
Ford returned the opening kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown Sunday for his third such return of the season, all in the past seven games.
During that time, Ford also caught two passes for touchdowns and ran 71 yards on a reverse for a score. His kickoff return for touchdown Sunday broke Justin Miller's franchise records for most in a season (2008) and career.
Ford is tied with the Seattle Seahawks' Leon Washington for most kickoff returns for touchdown this season.
Janikowski set the team record with a 61-yarder against the Cleveland Browns a year ago today. He has 23 field goals of 51 yards or longer during his 11-year NFL career, including three this season.
He now trails only Marcus Allen (1,168 in 1984), Mark van Eeghen (1,273, '77), Napoleon Kaufman (1,294, '97) and Allen (1,759, '85).
McFadden suffered a slight ankle sprain in the second half but said it didn't hamper his running ability the rest of the way.
"It's a little bittersweet," Schilens said. "You really want to win the game. Hopefully, we'll finish 8-8 and make it a good year."
"Dom was awesome today," Manning said. "The offensive line was awesome. Some big holes, some good cuts by all the backs. "... Really, some huge runs at some critical times."
Rhodes had only 26 yards on nine carries in one game since re-signing with the team that drafted him in 2001. He was out of the league last season and the first 12 games this season.
