Although the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots rivalry has lost some of its luster due to the Colts' poor play, it should still provide some exciting moments as always.

The Colts are 20-point underdogs and they have looked absolutely wretched for the past two months. With defensive coordinator Larry Coyer the first casualty of the Colts "oh-fer" year so far, head coach Jim Caldwell may be fighting for his job with this game.

Bill Belichick and the Patriots are unlikely to let up on the gas against their long-time nemesis. I expect Tom Brady and the potent Pats offense to shred the Colts' patchwork secondary.

We'll also get our first look at Dan Orlovsky as a starting QB for the Colts. The underwhelming Curtis Painter has been justifiably kicked to curb and now Orlovsky will be trying to avoid being a part of a second 0-16 team.

Stay here for all the action!

Final Score: Colts, 24 - Patriots, 31
