DAVIE, Fla. (AP) _ Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino watched one of his friends get back to work.

What he saw was another flawless performance by Peyton Manning.

Manning went through a second straight near-perfect practice at the Miami Dolphins' practice facility as the Indianapolis Colts prepared to face Chicago in Super Bowl 41.

Coach Tony Dungy wanted to keep his normal routine, including piping in noise over loudspeakers to replicate what the Colts could face Sunday at Dolphin Stadium. He does it each time the Colts play on the road.

And as usual, Manning finished the 2-hour, 9-minute workout with a customary touchdown pass in the two-minute drill.

It was a 23-yarder to Aaron Moorehead with nine seconds left.
