13 points down with seven minutes remaining against the Tennessee Titans, the Indianapolis Colts were staring an 0-3 start to the season in the face on Sunday night.
Led by quarterback Andrew Luck, the Colts managed to avert crisis with a impressive comeback.
In the locker room after the game, an emotional Chuck Pagano - head coach of the Colts - put the win down to 'grit'.
Pagano just about maintained his composure as he delivered some rousing words.
This is bigger than a football game. This is about life and learning lessons about life.
You can do anything that you want to to - anything! - when you have faith and you have family and you have belief in one another.
You have grit and you have intestinal fortitude. You've got resolve. You got it kid. Everyone of you’s got it. Big time.
That's as big a win as I've ever been a part of in my life. I'll cherish that one for the rest of my life. I guarantee you that.
That's why we do this - for moments just like this.
You may remember Pagano from another emotional speech which he gave three years ago after returning to the Colts locker room for the first time following treatment for leukemia.
