Colts Vs. Patriots: NFL Week 11 Game Capsules

I'm a bit puzzled as to why the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts aren't being featured on Sunday Night Football this week. Seems like an obvious choice - two perennial contenders that don't like each other but have the utmost respect for one another, the two best quarterbacks in the game, and a leg-up in AFC playoff positioning through Week 11.

Oh well, if one thing has been proven so far in the 2010 NFL season, it's that America's new national past time is going to continue to enjoy huge television ratings. The Giants and Eagles on Sunday night isn't such a shabby matchup either.

Back to the Pats and Colts. Here's a few figures, trends and notes on the two teams' series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
