Colts Keys

Will the Real Peyton Manning Please Stand Up? He's winless in six career starts in Foxboro, Mass., with nine touchdown passes and 16 interceptions in those games. If he can't beat the Patriots this time, with the NFL's pass-defense rules and New England's injury situation so decidedly in his favor, then when will he ever?

Spread the Wealth. Marvin Harrison is the old, reliable receiver for Manning. But the Colts' offense has been better than ever this season because Manning has made fellow WRs Reggie Wayne and Brandon Stokley almost as dangerous.

Get to Brady. The Indianapolis defense was able to get to the quarterback all year, with DEs Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis combining for 26 1/2 sacks during the regular season. The Colts probably will be without Mathis against the Patriots because of a sprained knee.
