07:38 PM ET 12.30 | There isn't a better story in the NFL this season than Chuck Pagano. Diagnosed with leukemia a few months ago, Pagano has spent the season fighting -- not on the sidelines, but in a hospital bed. He beat cancer -- he beat the hell out of cancer -- and was back on the sidelines on Sunday, leading his Colts in Week 17 against the Texans. The Colts showed up in a big way, downing the Texans 28-16 in the final game of the regular season. For Pagano, it was a perfect way to put a bow on the regular season as his team heads into the playoffs, capping a remarkable turnaround from 2011.

Who would've thunk it? Good for him! Pagano, as did the Colts, overcame a lot this year.

They showed one of the cheerleaders who shaved her head in solidarity with Coach Pagano. More shots of shaved cheerleaders would have been appreciated.

I think the Colts can beat Baltimore next week, too.
