Peyton Manning: Colts Have Something to Prove Against Jets
Peyton Manning faces a new look to the Jets and the playoffs this post-season. While the Colts are normally the team to beat, they suddenly find themselves in the Wild Card brackets as the No. 3 seed in the AFC.
Last season, the Colts were 14-2 and held Home Field Advantage in the playoffs. They reached the Super Bowl, but fell to the Saints. There was little to no talk about the possibility of Manning being past his prime. However, what a difference a year makes.
Now, consistent blurbs on the web are discussing the idea of the Colts' dynasty coming to a close, and passes from Manning that seem to float towards targets are under constant scrutiny.
When asked about this year's playoffs and the difference in team record from last season, Manning doesn't seem dismayed. According to the Kansas City Star, Manning is ready:
"Hopefully, we can build off some of the momentum we established," said Manning. We feel fortunate to be playing this week. We don't take it for granted to be in the playoffs."
The Colts will be riding a four-game winning streak into the playoffs, which may be just what they need to surprise everyone this post-season.
