As a whole, the Patriots-Colts rivalry has arguably turned into the NFL’s marquee matchup. Part of the reason for that is that everywhere you look when the two teams tussle, there are can’t-miss individual matchups.
The matchup that grabs the attention of most, of course, is the Peyton Manning–Tom Brady matchup. Considered by many as the two best quarterbacks in the NFL right now, and two of the best of all time, Brady and Manning always command the most attention when the two teams square off.
Sunday’s game, though, has more than just Brady-Manning. One of the keys to victory to the Patriots’ success will be keeping Brady upright. To do that, they’ll have to make sure Dwight Freeney is kept out of the backfield. For that, they’ll turn to Matt Light, who is coming off of a stellar showing in Pittsburgh last week, a game in which Brady was hardly touched against a top-flight Steelers defense.
