Rant My Life: Indianapolis Colts vs. New England Patriots Week 11 Preview
At the beginning of the season, nobody expected Sunday’s matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots to be a meaningful game–mainly because this was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Colts after finishing with just two wins last season. Instead, Andrew Luck has exceeded all expectations as a rookie in 2012 while helping Indianapolis become something nobody could have predicted in a million years–a playoff contender.
If the season were to end today, the Colts would be the No. 6 seed in the AFC as they’re off to a 6-3 start heading into Sunday’s matchup against the Patriots. What Luck has done so far as a rookie has been nothing short of phenomenal and appears to have a bright future when it comes to being a star in the NFL.
However, Luck will face one of the most difficult challenges of his young career on Sunday as he travels to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and company–a place that is never easy to play in. No rookie quarterback has won in Foxboro since Kerry Collins during the 1995 season and the fact that New England is averaging 37 points over their last three games could mean trouble for Indianapolis.
On the bright side, the Colts have to like their chances going up against one of the league’s worst defenses in football in the Patriots as they rank 28th when it comes to stopping the pass. It was always fun watching these two teams square off against each other when Peyton Manning was in Indianapolis and depending on what happens on Sunday–there could be a new rivalry establishing between Luck and Brady.
