Why did we stop running?

We were getting *great* running (with decent blocks too) all night long, then in the 4th quarter, long before the game was over, the Colts completely abandoned the run, calling 2 run plays in the quarter.

Colts were down 17-12 going into the 4th, had been shredding the Browns on the ground. had possession, with just over 10 minutes to go. Colts defense had played relatively well up to now, a good long sustained drive, and a redzone conversion could potentially have swung the game completely. Addai ran for 6 yards on first down.

At this point (2nd and 4), Collins' last 5 pass attempts were Inc, Inc, Inc, Inc, INT. He was 10-22 with 1 INT at this point, while Addai had 13 carries for 64 yds (almost 5 YPC, Delone Carter had 11 carries for 46 yds...that's 24 carries for 110 yds (4.6YPC).

Then, instead of trying to go with what had been working on offense, they went with Kerry Collins, at which point the Colts proceeded to go Inc, Inc, punt;  Inc, run, Inc, punt;  Inc, 7yd completion, Fumble over the 3 remaining drives that would matter in the game.

I just don't get it...
