All good things must come to an end eventually. This time, it's the Colts-Patriots prime-time rivalry which has captivated audiences for close to 10 years. Why? 

Let's see. Peyton Manning will miss the whole season, the Colts are winless with Curtis Painter under center, and basically the Colts have already been embarrassed twice in prime time (cough, cough, 62-7, cough)

As for the Patriots, they aren't as good as they initially thought they were. Losses to the Bills, Steelers and Giants have pulled them into a three-way tie for first in the AFC East. 

With the revelation that the Colts suck without Peyton behind center and the Patriots can't win against good teams, NBC announced that they were dropping the game from the Week 13 prime-time slot on Dec. 4. They have yet to announce a replacement, though. 

Here are five NFL games that could replace what was once the greatest rivalry in football.
