INDIANAPOLIS - Peyton Manning had two of his four interceptions returned for touchdowns - and the last pick set up a 38-yard field goal by David Buehler that gave Dallas a 38-35 overtime victory Sunday.
"It isn't good when you're having to ask which one is it," Manning joked in the postgame news conference when asked what happened on the interception. "I don't make any excuses. I'm continuing to throw, I'll keep throwing. I hope I throw it to our guys."
It's the third straight loss for the Colts (6-6), and it dropped Indianapolis out of the AFC South lead. "We certainly have put ourselves in a hole," Manning said. "Unfortunately, we have to scoreboard- watch a little bit, and that's not a situation you want to be in. I'm disappointed that I've put our team in a hole, but we do have some division games left."
Manning has thrown 11 interceptions in those three losses - a career high for any three-week period in his 13-year career - and had four of those returned for scores.
Manning was 36-for-48 for 365 yards with two TDs. Reggie Wayne finished with 14 catches for 200 yards and a touchdown.
Buehler's field goal won the first-ever overtime game played at Lucas Oil Stadium. Dallas (4-8) won for the third time in four games since Jason Garrett took over as coach, and they won this one on the ground. The Cowboys rushed for a season-high 217 yards.
