Charles Lloyd "Chuck" Thompson (June 10, 1921 – March 6, 2005) was an American sportscaster best known for his broadcasts of Major League Baseball's Baltimore Orioles and the National Football League's Baltimore Colts. He was well-recognized for his resonant voice, crisply descriptive style of play-by-play, and signature on-air exclamations "Go to war, Miss Agnes!" and "Ain't the beer cold!".
Two years later he joined Bob Wolff to call Washington Senators games on WWDC-AM and WTOP-TV, succeeding Arch McDonald as a result of National Brewing becoming the team's new sponsor. Thompson returned to broadcast Orioles games on both radio and television (WBAL-AM and WJZ-TV from 1962–1978, WFBR-AM from 1979–1982, and WMAR-TV from 1979–1987), and would continue to do so until his first retirement after the 1987 season. Besides his baseball-related achievements, Thompson also called Colts football for many years, first on CBS television in the 1950s and '60s, and then alongside Vince Bagli on radio from 1973 until the team's relocation to Indianapolis in 1984.
In the second quarter, Baltimore defensive end Ray Krouse recovered a fumble from Gifford to set up a 2-yard touchdown run by Colts running back Alan Ameche. On their next drive, New York got a big scoring opportunity when they recovered a fumbled punt from Jackie Simpson on the Colts 10-yard line. The Giants then went ahead early in the fourth quarter with Conerly's 46-yard completion to tight end Bob Schnelker setting up his 15-yard touchdown pass to Gifford. On both of Baltimore's next drives they moved the ball into scoring range, but came up empty both times. First they drove to the Giants 39-yard line, only to have Bert Rechichar miss a 46-yard field goal.

The Indianapolis Colts were embarrassed last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers, giving up 51 points and 521 passing yards in a lopsided defeat. On Monday, Andrew Luck and the boys took out their frustrations on the New York Giants, pounding them 40-24 at MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football. New York played miserably throughout the game, dropping passes on seemingly every drive. When receivers weren't sporting bricks for hands, Eli Manning was under duress, taking three sacks and multiple other hits. The game began with the defenses playing stout. Indianapolis scored the only points of the first quarter on an Adam Vinatieri 48-yard field goal. The Colts began to take control early in the second behind Luck, who found tight end Coby Fleener on a corner route for a 32-yard touchdown for a 10-0 advantage.
