Gone are the days of Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning, but the Colts have made up for time lost since Manning's departure and face the same nemesis they had back in the day. And the Patriots own the Colts, much like they did as well.
In what will be the second consecutive season with these teams meeting in the postseason, the Colts head to Foxboro to take on the Patriots, the Colts in their second consecutive road playoff game, and the Patriots with their second straight at home.
It hasn't been pretty in the Andrew Luck Era for Indianapolis against the Patriots. He's 0-3 in his career, including a 42-20 drubbing in last year's divisional round. Ex-Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount rushed for a Patriots-record four touchdowns in that victory, and he could be a key player in this game.
