The agreement came early today. More than 70 scheduled flights Sunday had already been canceled but Mesaba says hundreds of other fights should now take off as planned. Talks continued past a Friday night strike deadline. Terms of the contract are not being released until the pilots can officially vote on the agreement. That could come as early as this week. Mesaba operates as a Northwest Airlink, and serves about 30 states including Virginia.

Peyton Manning was his normal self throwing for 304 yards and 3 scores including this 29 yarder to Brandon Stokely to put the Colts on the board.
It was 21-10 Indy at the half, but All-Pro Priest Holmes got one of his two rushing TD's early in the third quarter bringing the Chiefs to within 24-17.
Manning then calmly found Reggie Wayne in the endzone for 6 more though to give the Colts some breathing room.
KC's Dante Hall then took the ensuing kickoff and did what he does best. Hall found a seam down the middle of the field and then popped it to the outside on his way to a 92 yard kickoff return for a
