Big Week For The Colts

It's a big weekend for the Indianapolis Colts, as the meet the San Diego Chargers.  To start off the weekend off, Peyton Manning was awarded the League MVP Award, as he drove the Colts to a 12-4 record, after starting 3-4.

The Colts go ito this game as favorites, albeit a 1 point favorite.  This will be a dangerous game for the Colts as and the Chargers always play a smashmouth game the is usually settled late in the game.  There is no reason to think this game will end any differently.

The Colts have just completed a 9-game winning streak, but the Chargers have just completed a streak of their own, winning their last 4.

This will be a tough game for both teams.  It remains to be announced whether LaDanian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates will play, as both are on the injury report.

This season has been different for a Colts squad that usually wraps up a division title by week 13 or 14.  This year, each win has been hard fought and down to the wire.  Look for every playoff game to be the same.
