    I hope they kick the Patriots' butt, then we'll kick Indy's butt in the Super Bowl. :)

    They don't appear to be intimidated at all by the Patriots.

    The other thing is they appear to be the more physical team out there right now which is really suprising.

    I'm impressed. Indy definitely solidifying their spot on top of the power rankings and making a push towards homefield advantage through the playoffs.

    The key will be avoiding a second half letdown as the Pats are a great second half team.

    The other good thing about this game is the deification of Tedy Bruschi seems to be put on hold this week.

    no they arnt...

    they are good, and they are doing what a good team should be doing against a mediocre to average team...New England is no better than average right now...too many injuries and the loss of two great coordinators will tend to do that

    NE has been involved in 5 games against elitish teams thus far:

    Chargers - loss
    Steelers - win
    Panthers - loss
    Broncos - loss
    Colts - ? loss

    If you want to count the Falcons as elite (I wouldn't) then you could put them down for a win against Atlanta.

    Don't kid yourself

    Indy is the best football team this league has seen since the 1998 Broncos

    I do believe they are a good team, but you also need to look at their schedule thus far:

    @ Baltimore
    Jacksonville
    Cleveland
    @ Tenn.
    @ San Fran.
    St. Louis
    @ Houston
    @ New England

    Not too many good teams there......Also has ALOT to do with their "great" defense. Most of these teams rank in the bottom 20 as far as offenses go.

    ...Belicheck has just lost his mind. Short kicks and gives up an easy FG to let Indy go up by (3) scores. Then gambles on 4th and 4 and turns over the ball.

    This all with 4-5 minutes left in the third quarter????

    Nah, he just got used to having all the "breaks" go his way, as they have for the last 4 years.

    Little Bill is nothing without his two coordinators? Is that why he has this team with a winning record despite missing basically half of his defense all year? Comeon now man.

    I think Dallas's CBs would present an interesting matchup with Indy's passing game. Their hurry up offense could cause some problems, though.

    I was at game - Manning and that offense is clicking at high gear. Indi was passing and running over Pats at will....Onsides was desperation because all 65000 fans saw it too, they were not stopping Manning......

    Pats D not the same. Missing Johnson in the middle. Seymour out again. Harrison and Law gone.

    At some point that catches up. BB had no answers on D - flat out manhandled. Fun watching both offenses. Boy they like 4 and 5 wide sets..... Pats run a lot of TWO TE's flanked with Watson/Graham

    Indi is the real deal - JMO

    I agree. Dallas seems to have problems with the no huddle offense and Manning doesn't allow you to substitute players in, which doesn't allow Dallas to rotate their players in.
