During their five straight victories against the Colts the Patriots have scored 31 points or greater with each game going over the total. In their Divisional Playoff game the Patriots were tested by the Baltimore Ravens in a 35-31 home victory last week. The Patriots had to rally from an early 14-0 deficit. Tom Brady hit a game winning 23 yard touchdown pass to Brandon LaFell with just over five minutes left. The Patriots defense then stopped a Ravens drive late to advance to the Championship Game. The Colts were sent to the road to battle the Denver Broncos last week in the Divisional Round. The story of this game was the play of the Colts defense. After allowing an opening drive touchdown to the Broncos the Colts gave up just two Denver field goals the rest of the way. The Indianapolis defense did an outstanding job of getting off the field on third down. When the Colts offense got into the red zone they did a good job as they had three touchdowns in four trips inside the twenty.
