The Colts finished 20th in total defense and Patriots were 26th in third-down defense.

In 2012-2013 season, Luck and the Colts lost to Brady's New England. But Indianapolis players agree that today's game will be another dog fight. Both the Colts and Patriots have shown resilience in tremendous odds this season. New England was down 21 points before they made a come back that continued to a 31-34 win against the Denver Broncos on Nov. 24, 2014. Just last weekend, Colts rallied from a 28-point deficit in the second half for a 45-44 home win over Kansas City.
It is almost for certain that Bradly won't let any opportunities slip in his passing plays, but can Luck continue his super-man like performance in being the catalyst for the team? Luck threw four touchdowns and 443 yards, which came after he caught three interceptions during the time that Colts were thought to have lost their chance at the AFC title.
Luck has mostly turned to the second-year receiver T.Y Hilton, who caught 13 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns last weekend. While Patriots defensive tackles will apply pressure on Luck, they are expected to counter the pass plays between Luck and Hilton with rookie Logan Ryan and Agib Talib, one of the best cornerback tandems in the league. They have caught a combined nine interceptions for the AFC East champions.
Brady is most likely continue to turn to receiver Julian Edelman, who has posted a career highs of 105 catches and 1,056 yards receiving. The Patriots will also mix in power-running plays of running backs Stevan Ridley and LeGarrett Blount, who have a combined 1,546 rush yards and 14 touchdowns.
