PATRIOTS vs. COLTS
FOXBORO – It isn’t just that every play matters in the playoffs, it’s every read, adjustment, angle and split-second decision made on the fly that determines who moves on. The Patriots have had two weeks to prepare for a Colts team that’s beaten some of the NFL’s best – Denver, Seattle, San Francisco and Kansas City. They have the game at their place and the nasty weather should play to their strengths. But if any quarterback in the final eight has a will and competitiveness similar to Tom Brady it may be Andrew Luck. It will take a lot to kill the Colts.
