I believe that Dungy said he is going to play his starters against us and the Tacks, because they are division games and he wants his team to not lose any focus.

What you may see - and benefit from - are some greater risks taken play-calling-wise on deep routes and things of that nature, as we've still got a lot of new and rookie players in starting positions that would benefit from the reps.

I'm not calling the game an Indy lock, I'm just saying you can probably expect to be played with the intention to dominate.
Indianapolis is 0-8 against the spread in Weeks 16 and 17 since 2003.

The line for the game has fallen from -9 points for Indy to the current -7 points. It appears that the bookies are not as confident about the fighting spirit of the Colts as they were a few days ago.

I would actually give us a good chance to win this game. Dungy is bold, but he isn't stupid. He isn't going to risk an injury to a big named player this close to the playoffs. Everyone will start, but I doubt everyone will finish. As for the actual game, Mario vs Ugoh is a dream match-up for us this time around. Ugoh is dinged and Mario is turning the corner, and will probably be out to prove something after being snubbed for the Pro Bowl, despite leading the AFC in sacks.

I won't give a score, but I think this is a fairly balanced matchup.

From the conference call, it definitely sounded like the starters would be pulled at some point.

My favorite is the basketball one, though... which came right after we beat them last year.

How does that stat look for Houston?

I'm not saying it's a lock - I really tried to make that clear by saying "I'm not saying it's a lock." Sorry for any ambiguity. I just don't think the Colts will be phoning it in this week. Dungy, Manning, and Polian have all made statements indicating that they'd be playing to win.

It looks like 1 W and 1 L both of which beat the spread.

Indianapolis is in limbo. It can't catch the Patriots for homefield advantage. It cannot be surpassed by the Chargers and Steelers, given that both squads are three games behind them in the standings. So, the team's locked into the No. 2 seed. That means the Colts have absolutely nothing to play for. Its more a testamont to their great overall play & success during the Manning era, they have learned to prepare & last year, reach their goal winning the Superbowl. nothing to be gained by expousing your playoff aspirations letting a pissed, bypassed for the Pro-Bowl, #1 overall DE who's playing like the second coming of Bruce Smith & a team desperate to finally notch a winning season playing the best football since its inception

Which NFL teams are getting the focus? NE and Dallas. Do you want to be able to say you beat Houston or say you went to Super Bowl? Key starters will get a few plays to "keep warm" and then should give way to backups. At least, if it were my choice.
