Colts at Patriots
Jesus Christ, how is this Patriots team 12-4 with injuries galore?
Most will say its because Tom Brady is just so good. That's Bullshit. Statistically, he has had one of the worst seasons of his career. They benefit from a shitty division where 6 of their games are against the Jets, Dolphins, and Bills (none finished above .500), and they are so damn lucky it is ridiculous. Belichick clearly sold his soul to the devil to eek out so many barely wins against horrendous teams.
I must admit Andrew Luck seems like the real deal, especially after pulling off the second greatest comeback in playoff history last week against the (overrated) Chiefs. Unlike most Pats opponents this year, the Colts and Luck can put up points. But their defense is worrisome after giving up 44 points to Alex Smith and KC despite the electric Jamaal Charles being out after the first drive. Indy has been inconsistent all year, but seem to play better against good teams, hence wins against the Seahawks, Broncos and 49ers in the regular season. I expect a shootout but Brady just doesn't have the offensive weapons to keep up. Especially with his security blanket Rob Gronkowski out. Brady cries after yet again not winning a ring post spygate.
