    I've been trying to figure out how much greater the Pats TOP has been over their opponents for the total of the eight games. The hours and minutes messed me up a bit. Jethro came over to help with the nots, but he got confused too. The best as I can cypher, the Pats have had the ball for 89 minutes longer than the other teams. That's just about 1.5 games! Have I totally messed up my math? Can anyone verify this? No wonder defenses get tired.

    I'd have to think that the Colts strategy is to run and use a good amount of clock, working to score in each posession themselves but keep the Pats offense off the field as much as possible.

    If its a shootout the Patriots are favored... keeping the score lower works in the Colts favor

    though all things are relative... save for turnovers, both teams will get the ball an equal amount of time and I'd put my money on the Patriots scoring TDs on more opportunities than the Colts.
