This isn't Tom vs Peyton anymore but it is still Pats vs Colts. Luck is the Natural battling a legend in Tom Brady as both teams have had a great season. These 2 franchises have been the best since 2000 as far as overall wins, and both have won the SB, - Pats 3 of them 2001, 2003, 2004 - Colts in 2006. In meaningful games the Pats got the better of the Colts in Playoff games in the 2003 AFC Title Game 24-14 as Tom Brady was boss and in the 2004 Divisional Game 20-3 but the Colts turned up the furnace in 2006 and rallied in the 2006 AFC Title Game 38-34 as Peyton was finally clutch + Bob Sanders stepped up to polish it off then in the best Regular Season game ever in 2009 Peyton was down 34-14 in the 4th Qtr and lead an unbelievable comeback 35-34 win when he threw a pass to Reggie Wayne with 10 seconds left. That was the famous 4th and 2 game. Now here we are again :-)

Tale of the Tape
Patriots 12-4
Colts 12-5
Brady vs Luck, advantage Brady but Luck can at least hang
Overall Defense, advantage Pats
Coaching, advantage Pats = BB
SPTeams, hey Colts have this one with Adam and Pat
Line - Pats 8.5

Any defense the Pats have an advantage over must be baaaaaaaaaaaaaad!

GO PATRIOTS.......!

Our Defense stinks with the exception of Mathis. We made Alex Smith look like Steve Young. I cant wait for the game guys.

I want the Colts to win, that could set up a Peyton Manning vs. Andrew Luck AFC Championship game.

That would be sweet.

I would love to see that too of course but if the Pats do go on and win Tom vs Peyton 1 last time would be fun to watch. Broncos still have to beat SD as that isn't a given.

Chargers at Pats would be SWEETER!!

If that happens I think I would croak haha. No Colts or Peyton left, what a buzz kill that would be to my season after all the great moments.

Another Pats defensive starter heads to the IR. Brandon Spikes

Both Defenses have their flaws, I hate to see any injuries. Only reason why I gave the Pats the Defensive edge is because after what I seen Saturday letting Alex Smith look like he was the greatest ever without Charles score 44 points that was bad! The offensive injuries are sad too, Reggie Wayne/Rob Gronkowski, too bad both those guys aren't healthy and ready. That is 2 weapons that could've really affected this game.

It's too bad Aaron Hernandez got caught. He could have been the difference in this game.

Not, too bad Hernandez killed someone????

Too bad he got caught???? Really??

I see this game being high scoring but it doesn't take a genius to make a prediction like that. My brain tells me Patriots 34-27, my heart says Colts 31-27. Pats/Colts - there is nothing like it for me. I am just glad the Colts were able draft Luck and be good again, after losing Peyton I was worried. Luck is proving not to be a bust and to be very good on his way to maybe being Elite.

*able to draft, I haven't been able to type on here very well at all today.

his stupidity, coldness, and cowardice [helping/killing that dude] weren't only a horror to the victim's family, but to the fans/pats-org. too;.....that being said = his incarceration definitely threw a wrench in the gear in their offense = welker might still be here, woodhead would've been resigned.,......sad.

Oh I will be. I am off this weekend and will watch all the games. Go Colts and Broncos! In the NFC I really don't care who wins as I just want to see 2 great games. I picked the Seahawks to go to the SB before the season started so I guess if they make it through I will be happy. What's funny is if the Colts win it would really be better if the Broncos lost because that would mean would host the AFC Title Game vs the Chargers. Advantage Colts in that scenario.
