You know the football gods set this one up. The team the Colts laid down for and gave up their shot at an undefeated season, plus opened the door for the Jets even getting into the playoffs... is coming back to Indy with a ton of confidence.
It's not like they weren't hanging close with Indy before Indy laid down so that has to have given them a ton of confidence. And now that they've won out and scored 2 wins in the playoffs their confidence is only growing. So now Indy really needs to prove they can beat them... a team that if they would've played for the unbeaten season, might not even be in the playoffs.
Polian has karma... karma and the football gods.... to thank for this matchup...
