In the spot that most of us thought would be occupied by the Cincinnati Bengals, the Colts travel east to face the New England Patriots on their home turf. I once again turn to Tecmo for probably the most accurate prediction of the game.


The game starts with New England receiving the ball and promptly moving down the field using their passing game.

At the end of 3 the Colts lead 14 - 10.

In the biggest part of the safety, Andrew Luck is forced to leave the game with an inury.


The Patriots are rolling. Danny Amendola pulls in the Tom Brady pass for another Patriots touchdown.


Down by 5 the Colts are forced with a 4th and 19 late in the game. Matt Hasselbeck completes the clutch throw and the Colts pick up the first down.
