FOXBOROUGH, Mass. | Tom Brady barely outdueled Peyton Manning in their annual meeting, leading the New England Patriots past the Indianapolis Colts 31-28 Sunday.

The teams met for the eighth straight season, and Brady guided the Patriots (8-2) to a 31-14 lead before four-time MVP Manning led a spirited comeback. But Manning was intercepted in the final moments for the third time.

Brady not only beat Manning, the only other quarterback of the last decade in his class, but tied another QB icon for an NFL mark. Brady has won 25 straight regular-season home starts, equaling Brett Favre’s record when he was with Green Bay.

New England is tied with the Jets atop the AFC East. Indianapolis (6-4) leads the AFC South.
