Big Game Preview: Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

The Colts were the best team in a mediocre AFC South division with double-digit victories in each of their playoff games — including the 24-13 stunning victory at the last week. Luck, too, has played its part.

Key players:  Wide receiver Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton has been excellent and should be a tough cover, and the trio of tight ends — Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle — have been big contributors and rookie receiver Donte Moncrief.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

How they got here: The Patriots won 10 of their 11 games to win the AFC East and clinch the top seed in the conference. Brady and Gronkowski both have had MVP-caliber seasons.

OUTLOOK

The Patriots can be vulnerable with the Colts being on a hot streak.

Will Luck pull the upset?

The Colts’ needs to set the tone up front on first downs but we’ll side with the Patriots in this one, barely.
