INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts receiver Pierre Garcon celebrated the best game of his NFL career by unfurling a large Haitian flag, honoring his relatives and hoping to draw attention to the earthquake-ravaged country.

Moments after Indianapolis beat the New York Jets 30-17 Sunday in the AFC championship game, Garcon got up on a podium and dislayed the flag for the second straight week.

Garcon was born in New York and attended high school in Florida. His parents emigrated to the United States from Haiti and most of his relatives still live there.

Garcon caught 11 passes for 153 yards, both career highs. He caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Manning midway through the third quarter for the go-ahead score.
