Peyton's got the TD mark. What's not going reported is that he's got an outside chance (very outside) to break Marino's yardage record also. He's got to get 535 yards next game. Sounds like a lot, but it is less than the single game record. Considering Peyton's having the best season in the history of Quarterback position, I wouldn't put it completely past him - although I'd probably give about 50-1 odds against it.

Well, if the Pats win against the Jets today (up 23-0 as of right now), the Colts can't do any better than the #3 seed, so I would not be surprised to see either Peyton not play at all, or see him maybe toss TD #50 then come out. I hghly doubt he's going to play enough to throw for 300 yards, let alone 535. Who knows, though.

Colts can do no better than third and no worse than fourth. Either way, it's a home playoff game. I'd rest him or just play him a half at most.

Colts are locked in at 3, as they are one up on San Diego with one to go, thus even a tie caused by a San Diego win and a Colts loss would go to the Colts due to the head-to-head tie breakers.
An interesting scenario does develop in the AFC should the Rams knock off the Eagles B-Team on MNF. The Rams host the Jets the last week of the season, and should they beat the Eagles, they would be playing for their playoff lives. The Jets can only get knocked out of the playoffs in a 3 way tie with the Bills and the Broncos, due to the Bills having the tie breaker on the Jets and all division ties are broken first in a conference tie-breaker. The Bills play a Steelers team at home that will be resting players, while the Broncos host a Colts team that will use next week as a version of a bye. Can anyone else picture the New York media screaming about the 'Integrity of the Game is at Stake' leading up to this weekend, as the Jets could possibly be eliminated due to teams that have clinched not putting out their best teams?

Ordinarily, I'd agree, but the Colts are playing Denver. If Denver wins, they'll be traveling to Indy the next week for a rematch. Given that, I can't see the Colts playing their b-team and letting the Broncos get any sort of confidence. I'll be surprised if Peyton comes out before the Colts have the game clinched.

Peyton is saying that he wants to play on Sunday, but how much of that is genuine "I want in and I'm going in" and how much is "well, what am I supposed to say" I don't know.

The Colts should have no fear of Denver, though. That team just has not been the same since losing at home to Oakland a few weeks back. Since then they gave away the San Diego game, struggled to beat the Dolphins, and got rolled up by Kansas City. The only game they looked good in over the last month was against a bad Tennessee team that had nothing to play for in a game the Broncos absolutely had to win. Not exactly inspiring.

The Broncos killed the Colts at the end of the regular season last year only to get their asses handed right back to them by the Colts in the playoffs. The torching through the air was so bad that the Broncos had to trade for a real "shutdown" corner in Chump Bailey. I expect more of the same this year - win the meaningless game (Peyton gets #50 in the 1st quarter then sits) and then get killed when it counts.

such is the life of a broncos fan.....

Remember, the Broncos don't necessarily get the Colts if they win. Jets loss + Broncos win + Bills win makes the Broncos the 5 seed due to better conference record than Buffalo, thus a game against the Chargers, which would be a pick 'em game.

Eeep. I was talking mathematically. I had no idea that they beat the Chargers.

Blame it on the new girlfriend...I haven't watched any Sunday football since Thanksgiving weekend.

No. It was clear they changed the play calling and it helped a ton.
