    I also think the winner between Saints and Vikings will go to the superbowl and destroy the the AFC team. I think it is more likely Saints will win the first ever super ball. Indy just don't have any running game. Brady just looks rusty. The Bengals' stingy defense may repeat what the Ravens did a few years ago, but I'm not sure if they can stop the Vikings or the Saints's high power offense.

    I say if the Vikings make it, they will match up better against the AFC. Better well rounded team. Saints - still getting it done with pure offence. Once the playoffs start, defences will be tighter.

    AFC still has the edge this year though. Hoping the black and gold can squeeze into the playoffs and take it from there.

    Default Colts is it!

    Colts beat Titans 27-17, extend win streak to 21


    AP Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning throws against the Tennessee Titans in the first quarter



    By MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer Michael Marot, Ap Sports Writer 20 mins ago
    INDIANAPOLIS Peyton Manning changed the script for victory No. 21.
    It still worked.
    Instead of another patented comeback or another 300-yard day, the three-time MVP took control early and played keepaway from Tennessee, leading the Colts to a 27-17 victory for their 21st consecutive regular-season win. Only New England, from 2006-08, has won that many games in a row, and Indy can break the record at home next week against Denver.
    The victory also extended the Colts' league mark for most consecutive 12-win seasons to seven, ended the Titans' five-game winning streak and tied Indy with the 1990s San Francisco 49ers for most victories in a decade (113).
    But unlike November, when Indianapolis (12-0) needed five straight fourth-quarter rallies to keep winning, the Colts spent the second-half Sunday holding off the Titans (5-7).
    Chris Johnson became the second running back in franchise history with seven straight 100-yard games, joining Earl Campbell. He carried 27 times for 113 yards but failed to become the first player in league history with seven straight 125-yard games.
    Tennessee had chances. Twice in the second half, the Titans went for it on fourth down in the Colts' red zone and failed both times. Tennessee also recovered an onside kick after scoring a late TD, but turned the ball over on downs.
    That put Manning in ball-control mode during a rare second half in which the Colts managed only three points.
    It was that kind of day.
    Indy, which hasn't lost in the regular season since Oct. 27, 2008, at Tennessee, had its best rushing day of the season. Joseph Addai ran 21 times for a season-high 79 yards and two touchdowns. Manning was 24 of 37 for 270 yards and one TD, and Pierre Garcon caught six passes for a career-high 136 yards.
    But it was Manning's ability to use most of the clock in the fourth quarter that sealed the win.
    Manning took Indy on a 15-play, 7:23 second drive, setting up Matt Stover for a 36-yard field goal with 3:14 left to seal it.
    During the week, Manning said he wanted a fast start and he wasted no time in making it happen.
    He opened the game by taking the Colts 75 yards in 1:58, giving the ball to Addai for an 8-yard TD run.
    After Tennessee got a 20--yard field goal from Rob Bironas, Manning took the Colts 77 yards in 3:56 with Addai scoring on a 1-yard run to make it 14-3.
    Then after failing to convert on Tennessee's first turnover, Manning took advantage of a second chance. Vince Young was picked off by Jacob Lacey with 5:43 left in the half and Manning responded with a 4-yard TD pass to Austin Collie for a 21-3 lead with 1:55 left in the half.
    Young finally got the Titans back into it with a 6-yard TD pass to Kenny Britt.
    But 20 seconds was too much time for Manning. The three-time MVP quickly got the Colts into field-goal range, thanks to a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty on Tony Brown that moved the ball to the Titans 30. Addai's 5-yard run set up Stover for a 43-yard field goal to make it 24-10 at the half.

    Do the Packers have an elite defense? That was up for debate entering Monday night. Not anymore. Green Bay's D did plenty to prove its worth in a 27-14 win over Baltimore.

    I like that as well . I see they have drafted/added Beanie Wells (watching the Vikings game right now), another thing to like . Still want the Saint to go all the way though .

    Not so Super: Browns sack Steelers 13-6


    • AP Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward walks off the field after a 13-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns

    By TOM WITHERS, AP Sports Writer Tom Withers, Ap Sports Writer Fri Dec 11, 7:26 am ET
    CLEVELAND There's nothing Super about the Pittsburgh Steelers anymore.
    The defending NFL champions lost their fifth straight and had their playoff hopes thrown for a loss by the lowly Cleveland Browns, who ended a 12-game skid against their bitter rival by beating the Steelers 13-6 on Thursday night in subzero wind chills.
    Ben Roethlisberger was sacked eight times and lost for the first time in 11 career games against the Browns (2-11), who extended Pittsburgh's longest losing streak in six years and defeated the Steelers (6-7) at home for the first time since 2000.
    Pittsburgh is going to need help to make the playoffs, a stunning freefall for a team that hit the season's halfway point at 6-2.
    Unexpected losses to Kansas City, Oakland and Cleveland three of the NFL's worst teams with a combined record of 9-28 have pushed the Steelers to the brink.
    "To lose five straight coming off a Super Bowl from last year is embarrassing," wide receiver Hines Ward said. "There's nothing fun about losing games, especially five in a row. We're better than that. We should play better than that. With three games left, you're going to see who really wants to go out here and play for the pride of this organization and this city and who doesn't want to be around here."
    Chris Jennings, who began the season on Cleveland's practice squad, scored on a 10-yard run and Phil Dawson kicked a pair of 29-yard field goals for the Browns, who snapped a seven-game losing streak, a 10-game slide at home and beat the Steelers for just the second time in 20 games.
    Roethlisberger tried to rally the Steelers, but his fourth-down pass to Santonio Holmes with less than two minutes left was knocked down by linebacker David Bowens.
    When Holmes was tackled on a punt return and the final second ticked off the scoreboard's clock, frozen Browns fans, who were nearly outnumbered by Terrible Towel-waving Pittsburgh fans, danced in the aisles. Several Cleveland players sprinted down field and jumped into the Dawg Pound section to celebrate.
    "It means everything," Browns do-it-all wide receiver Josh Cribbs said. "There are a lot of Steelers fans around the city so I hope people go to work and kick those Steelers fans."
    The Steelers, whose defense lost some of its spirit and much of its toughness when Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu went down with a knee injury, left the field stunned.
    "Hurtful," Holmes said. "I never thought I'd be losing five games in a row. I know those guys will continue to fight these last three games. Hopefully, we can get back in the lab this summer, regroup and start all over."
    The win was just the second for Cleveland's embattled first-year coach Eric Mangini, who certainly helped his job security by beating Pittsburgh, something no Browns coach had done since Chris Palmer nine years ago.
    Cribbs rushed for 87 yards out of the wildcat formation, had 104 return yards and caught one pass for 9 yards. He picked up a big first down on a 14-yard run in the fourth quarter when the Browns were trying to milk the clock.
    Afterward, Cribbs soaked in his biggest win since turning pro. He knew the Steelers' 2 1/2-hour bus trip to Pennsylvania would not be pleasant.
    "They're going to hear that bus' engine all the way back," Cribbs said. "That's a lonely ride. I've ridden that ride for five years now. It's time for them to hear that engine all the way home while they look at the stat sheet."
    Needing a touchdown to tie, the Steelers got the ball back with 6:16 left at their own 21. Roethlisberger, who has broken Cleveland's hearts before, began working his team down field with short passes. But he was sacked at midfield in the final two minutes and had his final pass batted away.
    Brady Quinn, making his first career start against Pittsburgh, completed just one pass in the second half and finished 6 of 19 for 90 yards.
    Roethlisberger went 18 of 32 for 201 yards. He had trouble throwing in the swirling winds that consistently blew over 20 mph and the Steelers were never able to establish their running game against the Browns' defense, which came in ranked 32nd overall.
    Cleveland's defense dominated the first half, sacking Roethlisberger five times and pressuring him on nearly every snap.
    Jennings' 10-yard scamper around right end the first TD scored by a Cleveland running back in more than a year put the Browns up 13-0 late in the second quarter. With their defense stuffing the Steelers and the temperature dropping, the Browns' lead seemed insurmountable.
    But the Steelers drove 58 yards in 41 seconds and got a 27-yard field goal from Jeff Reed as time expired to close to 13-3 at halftime.
    Reed's second field goal with 8 seconds left in the third brought the Steelers within a touchdown.
    But Pittsburgh was unable to put together a scoring drive in the fourth, and now the Steelers find themselves in more trouble than they could have imagined.
    This is certainly not what Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin had in mind when he promised his team would "unleash hell" in December.
    "We've found new and different ways to not rise up at critical moments and we're losing football games because of it," Tomlin said. "This one happened in all three phases."
    NOTES: Ward played despite a hamstring injury and caught four passes for 21 yards. ... Holmes, the MVP in Pittsburgh's Super Bowl win over Arizona, surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in four seasons. ... Browns DE Robaire Smith injured his hip in the first half but returned. ... Jennings previously played for Montreal in the Canadian Football League. ... Cleveland's offensive line went sleeveless in the bone-chilling weather.

    Colts break records with 28-16 victory over Denver


    • AP Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark, right, pulls in a pass for a touchdown in front of Denver

    By MICHAEL MAROT, AP Sports Writer Michael Marot, Ap Sports Writer 39 mins ago
    INDIANAPOLIS Even Peyton Manning's inconsistency couldn't derail history for the Indianapolis Colts.
    Or preserve the NFL records of New England and San Francisco.
    Manning was sensational, throwing three TD passes in the first 23 minutes, then mediocre, getting picked off three times in the Colts' 28-16 victory over Denver for their 22nd consecutive regular-season win. While Manning struggled late, the defense held off the Broncos as Indy broke the Patriots' record victory streak set just last year.
    The Colts are one of seven NFL teams to go 13-0, including this year's New Orleans Saints. The 2005 Colts also were 13-0 before losing three of their last four, including a divisonal-round playoff game to Pittsburgh.
    "We knew we needed this game to solidify home-field advantage in the playoffs, and that's what we wanted," linebacker Clint Session said. "We feel we're our best in our home stadium, and we got the win."
    It was a remarkable day for Indy and Denver.
    While the Colts (13-0) won their 114th game of the decade, breaking a tie with the 1990s San Francisco 49ers, broke a franchise record 13th consecutive home game as they clinched home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs, Denver receiver Brandon Marshall broke the league's single-game record with 21 receptions.
    Marshall tied the record on a 5-yard TD catch with 9:44 left in the game to make it 21-16 and broke the record on the Broncos' final play.
    But Manning had answered Marshall's fourth-quarter score by leading a game-sealing drive, hooking up with Dallas Clark on a 1-yard TD catch his third TD of the game with 2:25 to go.
    "It does (feel good)," Session said. "I'm a part of history right now, so it feels real good. It's something we can tell our kids and grandkids that we did something no one else had done. It's definitely a great accomplishment."
    It was easily the strangest win in the Colts' streak.
    Manning led Indy to touchdowns on three of its first four drives, then somehow lost his touch. After completing 10 of 16 throws in the first quarter, Manning went just 6 of 22 over the next two-plus quarters, once missing nine of 10 passes while throwing all three interceptions. He hadn't throw as many picks in a game since having a career-high six at San Diego in November 2007.
    Yet the Colts continually made plays on defense to prevent Denver from ever taking the lead.
    "Well, we did recognize it in the locker room. When you go 22 in a row, that's difficult to do," said Jim Caldwell, who took over as coach from the retired Tony Dungy and has the best record for a rookie coach in NFL history. "It's built on the shoulders of several guys who aren't even in that locker room, Tony included."
    Dungy, now an analyst for NBC's Football Night in America, added:
    "When I first got into coaching, Coach Noll used to talk about three-game winning streaks being hard to do. So 22 straight is something that you think you will never see. It's a great credit to the entire organization and to the consistency of the players. I am proud to have been a part of it."
    Indy wasted no time in taking charge.
    Manning opened the game with a 5-yard TD pass to Austin Collie, ending a time consuming 80-yard drive. After a Denver three-and-out, Manning connected with Clark for a 10-yard score to make it 14-0.
    The Colts were just getting started. After they limited the Broncos' to 23 yards rushing on eight carries in the first quarter, Manning took the Colts 71 yards and hooked up with Clark for a 1-yard score to make it 21-0.
    That's when Denver ditched the running game and put the ball in Kyle Orton's hands. And Marshall's.
    Orton went to Marshall on six of the next 12 plays, finally hooking up for a 4-yard score to make it 21-7 at the half.
    But with Manning out of sync, Denver threatened.
    The Broncos got a 28-yard field goal from Matt Prater early in the fourth quarter to make it 21-10, and Marshall tied the receptions record to make it 21-16.
    When Indy stopped the Broncos' 2-point conversion, Manning finally righted things.
    "I thought Denver made some plays, and we had some bad luck with bouncing balls there," Manning said. "We kind of weathered the storm, and the defense did a great job. So it was kind of two different games in terms of momentum, but fortunately we finished on a high note."
