Today's winner is guaranteed the 3 seed in the upcoming playoffs with a possibility of moving up to a 2 or maybe 1. The loser of this game is locked into the 4 seed.

Everyone find a way to be Ravens and Jets fans today too (I know, it just doesn't feel right) as they each take on the Steelers and Patriots, respectively. In a possible 3-way tie with the Colts at 13-3, the Colts would win the tiebreaker and grab the top spot. So, here's to hoping.

Along with the game thread we're also going to try a game chat for the first time this season. You can find the chat through the 'Chat Room' link at the top of the page. Feel free to ask if you need some help finding or setting it up.

Game Time: 1PM EST
TV: CBS

How would we move past the Pats if we hold same record? Did that first loss not count?

How would we move past the Pats if we hold same record? Did that first loss not count? For the Colts to secure the #1 seed, the Steelers, Patriots, and Colts would all have to finish with the same record. If that were to happen, then the Colts would (it's believed this is the case) obtain the 1 seed due to "Strength of Victory", since head-to-head matchups are thrown out in this case. In other words, the Colts' loss to NE earlier this year would not matter. Now, if the Patriots and Colts finish with the same record by themselves then the Patriots win that tiebreaker. I have no clue who wins the tiebreaker if the Chargers enter the mix with the same record.

I hope we win just from the standpoint that I don't want anything to do with the Jets in the first round. We don't play up to par against them and it seems that one side of the team never shows up against them...

The D (after two offsides penalties) forced the Chargers to punt. Now the offense takes over with 90+ yards to go to hit paydirt.

Peyton threw an interception at the freakin' 3 yard line. I really want this record to go away so everyone, including Peyton, can stop thinking about it.

It would be interesting to see how many of Peyton's interceptions are at or near the goal line. I'm thinking at least 6 out of the 10/11.

Peyton has thrown 4 red zone interceptions this year.

Ugh. Defense anyone?

We are playing the worst game that we have played all year so far. The play of the offense and defense so far have made the ST look really good so far.

4 trips to the red zone, and we have 3 field goals and 1 turnover.

Three passes, a free Charger every time, and we got 2 incomplete passes and a another fumble by Manning... WHOO!!!, we got a three and out!!!

Natston
12-26-2004, 03:49 PM
Okay, if we're lucky, they'll only score a TD here... Then it'll be 24-9 and then we'll answer with a fieldgoal. We're in great shape...

Vandy goes from a goat to a hero just like that. I was thinking if Brees got the Chargers down into field goal range it would have been over.......instead of them just being able to tie the game.

At least he made it when it really counted.

Anybody else hear him on SportsDesk earlier in the week when he said he felt as if he wouldn't be here next year since he feels Polian isn't including him in his plans for the future of the Colts?

What a win! I'm still in shock the Colts woke up in time to pull that one out. They played their worst game of the year and still won. Thank goodness the freakin' TD record is out of the way now. Kudos to Dominic Rhodes, who came to play today.

The Colts are locked into the 3 seed now, so the possible opponents could include the Jets, Broncos, Bills, or Jaguars (I think). The Broncos control their own destiny. Wouldn't it be something if the Colts have to play at Denver this Sunday then play them again at home the following week to begin the postseason? Craziness.

...and finally...

COLTS WIN!
