Peyton Manning gave the single best performance that I've ever seen from not only him but any quarterback. His receivers played like they weren't even being covered. His line, with few exceptions, gave him plenty of time and room to throw. Even his defense played well, causing 5 turnovers on the night. The Colts were great. Tom Brady, tips, drops, whatever you want to say, didn't play a perfect game. The running backs ( fumble, tips, drops) didn't have their best game as a group. The secondary seemed to feel that they had to give a 5 yard cushion to all Colts receivers at all times, even in the end zone. The Patriots had their second worse game of the year to this point. All that being said, it was still a 7 point game with the Patriots driving to score at the end. That game could have and should have been a blowout, but it wasn't. I think we have a very solid team this year and if everyone starts executing well and their talents are better utilized, then this team will go far.
