Because this Sunday night is gonna be one of the best matchups of the whole 2006 NFL season, that’s why! I’ve been watching the commercials and reading the chat. People want to bury us in stats, most of which reinforce the fact that the Colts and the Patriots are going into this game very even.
Personally, I think the historical numbers are interesting, and they may even have a little psychological impact. But the thing to look at is last week’s games. That won’t help you figure out who’s going to come out on top—Manning and Brady both had terrific, 300+ performances. But it will help explain how this will be the NFL not to miss in 2006! I wonder what Patriots tickets will be going for?
