And here's an excerpt from the issue:

Colin relives his bad plays

“All my life, I’ve had these flashbacks, these dreams, nightmares, daymares, like visions, where I relive certain plays,” he says. It’s never the highlight reel stuff. Just the junk. “Only the bad plays. I see them over and over, as if somebody’s rewinding a tape and forcing me to watch. Some of these are recent.” The three goal-line incompletions that preserved Baltimore’s slim lead as time dwindled in the Super Bowl play frequently and vividly. “But some of them go back to high school. Every time I relive these mistakes of mine, I’m also forced to ask, What could I have done different? What decisions could I have made? This stuff haunts me, but I like it, because it makes the game hard. And the more I study, the more comfortable I feel with what a defense is going to do.”
