That’s it. The only reason this game is number one is because of deflate-gate. The Colts couldn’t stand getting whooped by the Patriots yet again, so like the Jets with their tampering charges, Indy decided to whine about the “deflated” footballs, and once again turned the Patriots into the team everybody hates. This of course is fine with us, as we have accepted the role of the “bad guy”, but I assure you Bill Belichick and company have this game circled already.

New England doesn’t just want to beat the Colts to show them up again, they want to embarrass them. Beating them by 38 points in the AFC Championship game wasn’t enough. They need to be up by 40 points in the fourth quarter, and then go no-huddle right down the field for another score. They need to rub it in. Make them lick their wounds and beg for forgiveness.

Remind them not to mess with the king.
