I know nobody cares about injuries in football, and I know nobody on this board has any sympathy (nor should they) for the Patriots, but honest to God, just look at this stat:


"They've had 33 different starters at 22 positions in seven games."

I'm rooting for the Pats tonight. I am amazed by their ability to play football at such a level with so many injuries.

They'll still beat the Colts. The Pats are a physical football team, the Colts aren't. Colts=2003 Chiefs.

Whos gonna win tonight? If I pick the winner tonight I win the office pool and I'm buying for the Planet at the next tailgate.

Right now I'm leaning towards Indy.

It's hard to pick against the defending champs in their house, injuries or not. They've had their number for awhile, I'd go with the Pats.

If the Colts win, that's huge for them, obviously.

I think I've seen enough Pats dominance the past 4 years that I still find myself wanting the Colts to win.
It's close though.

I'll tell you this, regardless of who I want to win if I had to put money on it I'd definately put it on the Colts. They're simply a better football team this year.

Oh, I'm resigned to a loss, have no doubt about that. If Seymour, Dillon and Gay are back and at full strength (or very close to it), then we've got a good shot. Otherwise, it might not be very pretty at all.

Besides, so far our record this year is:

Win
Loss
Win
Loss
Win
Loss
Win

(so if the trend continues...)

But the reason I post this stat today is because, uhh, it appeared in the paper for the first time today. :shrug:

Colts are playing better now. Weather a non-factor.
Pat injuries.

Hard to pick against Pats at home. But I did.

Colts win, I picked every game this week.

Much as I hate dome man whiney Manning.
