Pats Win

I'm stunned. I know I shouldn't be, but I really thought the injury to Richard Seymour would hurt the Patriots yesterday. The last drive of the game padded the Colts stats, but they held the ball for less than 20 minutes before that final drive, and you can't score when you can't get on the field. New England won with its defense and the running of Corey Dillion and Kevin Faulk. When a team runs for more yards than it throws for (200+ to 144) you know two things: 1) That team had the lead start-to-finish, and 2) The other team simply could not stop them.

All four home teams won over the weekend, as the top seeds held serve. Now it's on to the conference championship games. More on those later.
