New England Patriots Will Host Indianapolis Colts In Playoffs
When the Indianapolis Colts were trailing the Kansas City Chiefs by 28 points on Saturday night, the Patriots/Colts rivalry looked dead in the water. Fast forward 24 hours, and it is sure to be alive and well this week. No, there won't be the tired "Manning vs. Brady" debates about who's the better living legend. This time, it's a kid named Luck. You need a little bit of luck when you're losing 38-10 on Wildcard Weekend. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Colt's win probability dropped to 0.9 percent when the Chiefs had that 28 point lead with 13:39 left in 3rd quarter. That takes more than (Andrew) luck to overcome.
Bill Belichick has always had success frustrating young quarterbacks...especially in Colts uniforms. Despite all of the injuries, the Patriots find themselves 2 wins away from another trip to the Superbowl.
Kickoff will be at 8:15 Saturday night inside Gillette Stadium. The Broncos and Chargers will play on Sunday at 4:40pm. The winners of both Divisional Playoff games will meet in the AFC Championship Game.
