AFC Championship: Colts at Patriots

  • The Dugout Simi 109 W Cochran St Simi Valley, CA, 93065 United States (map)

Once again Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots are in the AFC Championship game.  It's Brady's 9th appearance out of 13 full seasons, which is a league record.  Should the Patriots win, it will be a NFL record 21st postseason victory for Belichick (he's currently tied with the Cowboys' Tom Landry).  A Super Bowl appearance would mean that the Pats tie with Dallas and Pittsburg for the most appearances.  On the other side of the field, the story is much different.  Andrew Luck has taken the Indianapolis Colts to the playoffs every year since he was drafted to replace Peyton Manning.  A Manning helmed Colts made it to Super Bowl XLIV, only to be defeated by the New Orleans Saints.  Although a newcomer to AFC Championship round, the Colts' signal caller comes to Foxboro's Gillette Stadium leading the NFL in passing touchdowns with 40. Luck has a lot to prove, though, as he's been on the losing side all three times he's faced the Patriots (the Pats outscored the Colts 144-66 in those three games).  An NFL legend takes on a future NFL legend Sunday afternoon!  Kick-off is at 3:40.
