INDIANAPOLIS -- Peyton Manning keeps making mistakes and the Indianapolis Colts just keep losing. On Sunday, Manning had two of his four interceptions returned for touchdowns and the last one set up David Buehler's 38 - yard field goal in overtime to give Dallas a 38 - 35 victory at Indianapolis. It's the third straight loss for the Colts, 6 - 6, and it dropped Indianapolis out of the AFC South lead.

Manning has thrown 11 interceptions in those games, a career - high for any three - week period in his 13 - year career, and had four of those returned for scores. Reggie Wayne finished with 14 catches for 200 yards and a touchdown. But, it was Manning's last interception that proved the most costly. When the four - time league MVP tried to hook up with Jacob Tamme on a third - and - 1 play, Mike Jenkins got his left hand on the ball and tipped it to linebacker Sean Lee, who grabbed his second pick of the day and ran it back 13 yards to the Indy 36. Six plays later, Buehler made the field goal to win the first overtime game played at Lucas Oil Stadium. Manning was 36 of 48 for 365 yards with two TDs and the four picks.

Dallas, 4 - 8, won for the third time in four games since Jason Garrett took over as interim head coach, and they won this one on the ground. The Cowboys rushed for a season - high 217 yards and scored 20 points off turnovers.
