Colts @ Patriots

Pick: Patriots

The Colts had a miraculous comeback last week, but they got behind 38-10 to Alex Smith and Andy Reid, not exactly Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.  If Alex Smith can put up 44, Tom Brady

Why I Might be Right: 1) If Alex Smith can put up 44 points in Indy, Tom Brady may put up 800 in Foxboro; and 2) the Chiefs coaching staff couldn’t take away Luck’s only weapon (Hilton) – that won’t be the case with Belichick. If the Colts are going to beat the Patriots, they will be forced to beat the Patriots with someone other than T Y Hilton.
Why I Might be Wrong: Andrew Luck is one hell of a quarter back and the Colts may be able to use the momentum from last week to springboard to the AFC Championship.
