We now focus our attention on the Indianapolis Colts and Peyton Manning. With a Sunday night match-up on tap in Indianapolis. The Colts are struggling this season on all sides of the ball. With a record of 3 and 4 in the AFC South the Colts are now five games behind the Tennessee Titans. And for the first time in a few years just might be looking a wild card spot in the playoffs, if they can even manage that. A win this week for the Patriots could just close the lid on the Colts season and playoff dreams. Tune in Sunday night for this contest, that’s a must win for both teams.
