    Good prediction!

    I don't care what team you are, you have to be a little intimidated by the Colts offense. They break records every single game!

    I think the jets will steel the colts round the back of the bronco dugout counter rabbit pitch fork. Either that or the cross wind valley shot will be packed off to the green bay for chargeback.

    Colts / Falcons in the Super Bowl.

    Manning's going to show Mr. Brady how to play quarterback next weekend.

    problem with that, mister viflux, is that manning will have more trouble with the pats' defence than brady will have with the colts' defence

    they're both great offences, but defence wins championships

    of course, a good defence is not enough, as green bay discovered

    Agreed Mr. Rudy.

    However, word is that Ty Law will not be ready to go. That's a big blow to the Pats defense. Minus one of the best defenders in the league, they'll have an even harder time slowing down that offense.

    Also, I don't believe the Colts defense is as bad as they're made out to be. Their pass-rush is phenomenal, and while they do give up a lot of points, I think that has more to do with the up-tempo game created by their offense.

    I still say, if the weather is decent, Indy wins.

    Honestly, I didn't see how the Pats were going to stop Indy's offense last year, but they did. Indy's offense looks better this year, but somehow the Pats always find ways to win games, either by playing solid football or by luck. The Colts should get away with a win IMO, but who knows, weird things happen.

    Also, I don't believe the Colts defense is as bad as they're made out to be. Their pass-rush is phenomenal, and while they do give up a lot of points, I think that has more to do with the up-tempo game created by their offense.
    I don't know how bad they have made it out to be, but the Colts defense is bad. It's not that they give up a lot of points, but they give up a lot of yards, which is the result of giving up too many big plays, and thus allowing opponents to score consistently on them most of the time. Their pass rush is definitely good and they get a lot of takeaways, but it is the big plays that kill this defense.

    I have DirecTv. They offer the same Sunday Ticket package as the one in the US, so I'm able to see all the games. Additionally, I have ESPN and Fox (both spanish version) that airs out every playoff game. ESPN has SAP, but not Fox, unfortunately.

    Sure, I always play in Yahoo. How about you?

    We all know a team with that lowed ranked defense has never made it to the superbowl, let alone won it. Now how many records have the Colts broke this year? Whats one more??

    Also the Colts I believe were in the top three for defensive take-aways, and second in sacks! They are 100% better now then they were at the start of the season.

    Yeah, that is why I had them as my defense in my fantasy football league, but against Pats, it will be hard to put some pressure on Brady since that OL is pretty good, and the Pats usually don't have giveaways. If they find a way to constantly pressure Brady, though, I think that they will be in good shape.

    Also, the big plus for the Pats this year is that they have Corey Dillon, which gives them a solid running game, something they did not have last year.
