Re: OT: Will the Colts go 16-0...how about 19-0?
Tough question. If Peyton and the starters play three quarters today, no way the Jets beat them. If not...who knows?
So, I voted 16--0 but not 19--0, BUT, then...
...just for the fun of it I checked the long term weather forecast for Buffalo next Sunday.
We all know that predicting this afternoon's weather is risky, let alone a week out, but here's what it shows.
80% chance of snow, starting Saturday night and continuing into Monday.
Game day forecast is 80% chance of Snow, High of 20 with 15 MPH winds.
We all know how well Peyton plays in the cold and snow, so, under those circumstances, I see no way they would risk him or the other starters.
The game will be the Bills' "Super Bowl" and "Snow Bowl" rolled into one. Assuming the Colts handle Wrecks and the Sanchize today and assuming that the Bills get their butts handed to them in Atlanta today, a 5--10 team will be playing for its own little place in history, in the wind and snow at home next Sunday. TO might even break out the popcorn!
It is what it is. It wasn't what it wasn't.
