Normally, fans are in for a good game when the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts meet. Instead, this season's match-up between the two (usual) titans of the AFC should be a blowout win for Tom Brady and company.
Brady leads a hot Patriots team that has won three straight and six of their last eight games into a battle (if one could even call it that) against the winless Indianapolis Colts, who have been without legendary quarterback Peyton Manning all year.
New England (8-3) is coming off a 38-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Brady, who has thrown for 3,627 yards and 28 touchdowns this season, completed 24-of-34 passes for 361 yards and three touchdowns in the victory.
Meanwhile, the Colts are 0-11 on the season and are coming off a 27-19 loss against the Carolina Panthers. Curtis Painter threw for 226 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions and Reggie Wayne had five catches for 122 yards and a score.
Last season, the Patriots edged the Colts, 31-28, thanks in part to Brady's performance (186 passing yards, two TDs) and dominant performances from BenJarvus Green-Ellis (96 rushing yards, TD) and Danny Woodhead (69 rushing yards, TD).
