Yeah if the Colts can get close to full strength then the probable showdown with New England will probably five us our Superbowl winners, and Philly have shown that the Patriots are beatable. Colts have a huge divisional game tonight though against an inform Jaguars, and with just one game between the two it really is a must win and that won't be easy for the Colts right now with the amount of injuries in the team.

Colts are up 14-7 over the Jags in the big divisional game in the AFC South. 2 fantastic passes from Peyton Manning to firstly Dallas Clark and then Reggie Wayne. 5 mins 40secs to go before halftime.

The Colts have shown that NE is beatable too. They had that game near the end.


Peyton Manning has 2 touchdowns in the first half today.

Yeah the Colts really had the beating of the Patriots in that game with just 8 minutes to go, Indy were up by 10 and that was even without a few key players, so i definitely don't think its NE Superbowl yet, i certainly hope its not anyway.

Peyton to Dallas Clark again for Peyton's 3rd touchdown of the first half. At halftime its 21-7 to the Colts
Miami who are 0-11 are 13-17 down to the Jets approaching halftime.

That's just the odds makers protecting themselves. I mean the Pats had covered the spead in all, but the Indy and Philly games. You will see that number come down if they get burned the other way a few times. It's hard to judge with a team like the Pats. They have so many weapons and have had it so easy until recently, how do you set the spread?

I don't know how it is set at he beginning, when I see 20 points it seems too much. They could win by 30 or 3.
After the spread is made it can change and that is determined by how people bet. So it ends up with even money on each side of the bet. That's how they protect themselves.

Colts have won 28-25 against the Jags and now need just one more win to clinch the AFC South Division. 4 touchdowns for Peyton Manning. Dolphins were well beat by the Jets and are now just 4 loses from 0-16 for the season.

Getting closer to an 0-16 team verses a 16-0 team in the season. Pats have work to do tomorrow to make that possible, plus a couple more games after. If that happens I may just want to put money on Miami. They took out the last undefeated team this late in the season.
My question is, what the heck were those unis the Jets were wearing? Some kind throwback to an obscure uniform no-one's ever seen?

Yeah Miami are in serious trouble because today was the game they were supossed to have the biggest chance of winning. Miami are the only previous team to go undefeated in the regular season and now its beginning to look like they'll be the first team to end winless. If Miami beat the Pats it would be one of the biggest upsets in the history of the NFL.

That Jets strip was something that nobody had ever seen before and was a throw back to an old English NFL team called Norwich, it really was a throw back uniform and one I didn't think much of at all  :whistle:

All I can say is "How 'bout my Cowboys!!!!" :applause: :applause: :applause:

Whatever!?  Let me know how your Cowboys are going to beat NE............if they even make it that far? 

We will cross that bridge when we get there! :rofl_2:  Each game that NE goes unbeaten puts them under more and more pressure.  It'll just be fitting if they go undefeated during the regular season only to lose their first play off game! :rofl_2:

This season our main sports channel on satellite TV is showing over 120 NFL games OSU, including 5 every Sunday, the Monday game and now the Thursday game each week, as well as every playoff game. So its covered really well over here and while i;m watching the matches live I have the livescores on the internet of the other matches.
