The New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts square off for the AFC Championship today. The Patriots got here by beating the Baltimore Ravens while the Colts went on the road and beat their former quarterback, Peyton Manning, in Denver.
Earlier this year the Colts hosted the Patriots, that was back in November, and Indianapolis got walloped by Tom Brady's team 42-20. So the question is will we see that version of the Colts, the ones that the Cowboys ran out of AT&T Stadium? Or will we see the Colts that buried the Broncos last week with a surprising defensive effort? Andrew Luck is trying to raise his profile in the post-season while Tom Brady is trying to add another layer to his already sizable legacy.
