It's not a surprise that the Colts won today. They had beaten the 49ers and Seahawks. I am surprised that the Colts did lose to San Diego. So maybe these two teams are the teams to beat. I can't wait till the Colts play the Chiefs.
And for the chargers to make the playoffs they will probably have to win out beating the Broncos and Chiefs both times.
No it's not. The Colts are pretty dangerous this year but its tough to win in Indianapolis. I don't consider them the best yet, I want to see them be more consistent. This was a complete game, against the seahawks we were dominated and we're saved by sloppy mistakes and against the 49ers they were really banged up and the coaches had a horrid game plan.
I didn't believe the broncos were the best to begin with. The colts followed the blueprint set down by the hawks in the preseason. When you play press man against Manning you take things out of his hands, he can't do anything if his recievers can't get open but he will always carve up a zone coverage. The real way to beat a good press man is to establish the run and use play action but broncos couldn't get any traction.
