Pats vs Colts On 92.9 The Ticket [VIDEO]
It's Patriots vs Colts in Thursday night football and Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket live coverage begins at 5:30pm.
The matchup comes with so many questions...How will the players handle the short week? Do the Colts players have any animosity toward Josh McDaniels after accepting, then turning down the Indy head coaching job? Is Gronk's ankle ok? How effective will Julian Edelman be coming off the four game suspension? Who is the better kicker - Steven Gostkowski or Adam Vinatieri?
Dating back to the old Boston Patriots/Baltimore Colts days, these two teams have met 80 times. The Pats own the edge 47-28 in the regular season and 4-1 in the playoffs.
An interesting note - Tom Brady's first NFL start was against the Indianapolis Colts, September 30th, 2001. The Pats won 44-13.
18 years later TB12 is still the face of the franchise...
