Tomorrow's Bill Simmons Column Today
Do you know why the Colts lost 24-20 to the previously undefeated/heralded as the greatest team of all-time Patriots today? It's not because of injuries to their first-ballot Hall of Fame Wide Receiver, first-round pick Wide Receiver, and starting Left Tackle: it's because Tom Brady just wins football games!!!!1111!!1
The Pats are obviously a great team and still the favorite to win the Super Bowl, but it would be unwise to sleep on the Colts - I think there's a chance that, at full strength, they could beat the Pats. It's reasonable to assume that with all their WRs and a healthy offensive line, they would have done a better job moving the ball in the second half.
Hopefully this kind of desperate comeback win will show the media that the Pats aren't quite invincible and temper the ball-gargling for a week....but I'm not holding my breath.
