Here we go again with another New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts game. However this will not be like any other match-up when they kickoff tonight.

This Sunday night showdown has an element of revenge for the Pats even though the players and coach Bill Belichick spent the week shooting down the notion of payback provided extra motivation. Remember that it was the Colts that accused the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady of cheating in the AFC Championship game a year ago, claiming that Brady and team employees intentionally under inflated footballs. This will surely add a new level of intensity to tonight's game which you can hear live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket with coverage starting at 5:30pm.

This will be the 80th meeting between the two teams with the Patriots holding a 46-28 series lead in the regular season and a 4-1 record in the postseason. They played twice last year with New England winning the regular season game 42-20 and the AFC title game 45-7. Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has yet to post a win against the Pats, losing twice in the regular season and twice in the postseason.
