1. One team used to have the sexy prolific offense which shot itself in the foot in big games, and got stopped in key moments when they needed to score or get a key conversion. The fans of the team were always convinced they out-played the opponent despite losing, and still thought they were the better team. 2. The other team knew how to stay around even when being outplayed, did not make mistakes that killed them, and made the key offensive and defensive plays that won the games. The team also battled adversity, whether it be injuries or using inexperienced players on offense or defense. From 2001-2005, team 1 was the Colts and team 2 were the Patriots. Somewhere along the line, the teams have completely flipped in terms of character/personality, and from 05-09 the Colts have won 5 out of our last 6 matchups. Manning is in Belichick's head, a reverse from 01-05.
