New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Colts Vs Patriots: 3 Players To Watch

The biggest game of the season so far happens Sunday Night when the Colts and Andrew Luck take on the Patriots and Tom Brady! 

It’s the fourth straight AFC Title Game for the Patriots, but the first time Luck has been to AFC’s biggest dance, and the winner goes to the Super Bowl.

Here are the three players that will be key for New England to win.

1. DT Vince Wilfork: The whole defensive line has been put on notice I’m sure this week after their dreadful performance against the pass and run last Saturday evening. Wilfork and the gang did not have their best outing, routinely pushed back offering a huge hole to Justin Forestt, who ran for over 100 yards. They also gave Joe Flacco all the time in the world to throw which he gladly took. The Pats and Wilfork have to clean up their play and in a hurry because here comes the Colts and their ground game. They don’t run the best on the ground, but they run good enough with Boom Herron and Andrew Luck. They have to take Daniel Herron away and make the Colts pass every down for the entire game. They certainly can’t let them have a running attack.

2. CB Darrelle Revis: He got off to a rocky start against Steve Smith and the Ravens last weekend. He gave up 3 catches and a touchdown to Smith but after that settled down and shut out Smith. He did committ two huge penalties which he can’t do this time around. He must stop T.Y. Hilton, Luck’s favorite deep threat. He’s fast, explosive, and has good hands. Revis has to shut him down and force Luck to go elsewhere and if he does, its good news for New England.

3. WR Danny Amendola: I had no idea he would be the X – Factor against the Ravens last week, but he was. He exploded in that game with two touchdowns and was just a great player, and one the Ravens didn’t expect to deal with. He can continue the hot streak and if he does, the Pats will move the ball because they will have four viable options to throw to on offense. That my friend, is a very big deal because you can’t stop them all.
