well, figured we might as well start this thread now since the entire week for the sports nation is going to be devoted to this game as it is.

both teams are undefeated, and both are pretty much in a class above everyone else. who wins?

should be an awesome game.

I can't believe NBC doesn't have this as their Sunday night game. Houston obviously won't be getting the game since it's on at the same time as the Texans-Raiders game... :(

Texans vs. Raiders or the Game of the Century?

My homerism only goes so far.

speaking of regional action, the only CBS game on during the Colts/Pats game is Houston/Oakland. i imagine most of the country won't be getting that one.

Two losses in row could be tough to swallow....

The Tacks are happy.

we're going to be in Las Vegas starting Tuesday, so I will be able to get a bet in.

I'm thinking Indy right now...anyone care to tell me why I'm wrong and to bet NE instead?

NBC is ****ing retared for not picking this one up. Ratings would be through the roof.

I agree. I think it will be....

Patriots: 35 or 38 or 41

Colts: 14 or 17 or 21 or 24

Brady has 4 TD passes

Why?

Because this is one of the most hyped games of the year (probably THE hyped game of the year). Having it in prime time seemed kind of obvious. I know for sure to markets are not getting this game, The Bay Area and Houston. There are a few late games on Fox, too.

I don't think this will be as good a game as some would make it out to be. The thing that a lot of people don't realize about Indianapolis is that they are all offense, they have a a lot of wholes in their defense. The Patriots is more than good enough to contain Manning, and thus Indianapolis' chances are slim. Tom Brady and Randy Moss will have a field day with their secondary.

I will say:
Patriots - 42
Colts - 20

Ah, I get it.

Sorry... it's an Aggie thing.

can't put every big game in primetime. it's basically primetime in the afternoon anyway with basically no competition to watch it.

Indy is #2 in the NFL in scoring defense (giving up only 14.6 per game).

Passing:
#2 in pass defense (165.4)
Tied #1 in TD passes allowed (5)
#1 in Yds per Attempt (5.3)
#9 in INTs (9)

Rushing:
#13 in rush defense (107.4)
Tied #15 in TD runs allowed (5)
Tied #17 in Yds per Attempt (4.1)
Tied #3 in fumbles forced (12)
Tied #7 in fumbles recovered (7)

Total:
#4 in total defense (272.9)
#1 in Yds per Play (4.5)


The teams they have played average 19.3 PPG vs the 14.6 that Indy has allowed them.

The teams they have played average 328.6 YPG vs the 272.9 that Indy has allowed them.

Thats pretty darn impressive if you ask me. We could use holes like that in our defense.

I hope so. Should be a good game. I will be channel flipping, I still love my Texans, I'm just irritated at the way they have played in the last month.


I hope the Pats go undefeated and the Dolphins go winless. How about the irony there? Nothing personal to you kastofna.......

if he hits 60... man. he could go on top 10 all-time qb lists.

when tom brady breaks mannings record, not if, but when, I will be quite happy. I feel like manning didn't really earn it. he threw a lot of 3 and 4 yard td's, when he could have easily ran the ball. it seemed like going for the record to me. Brady's td's are like 30 yards, 32 yards, 80 yards....he's really throwing the ball.
