    No surprise: The Colts are the league's best team at scoring touchdowns once they reach the red zone, getting six points 71.9 percent of the time it crosses the opponents 20.

    Moderate surprise: They are fourth in red zone touchdown defense, allowing six points just 42.1 percent of the time.

    Big surprise: During their current five-game winning streak, they are really clamping down defensively in the red zone.

    ESPN Stats & Analysis provided these numbers, which shows Indianapolis is only allowing touchdowns 35.3 percent of the time over the last five games, when they've help opponents to 2.2 yards per play.

    ^It's the Colts. I think it's hilarious that since their streak ESPN is trying to draw comparisons to the 2006 superbowl team.

    I know. If that had been us with that performance against the Browns our season would have been over. Hell our season is over as far as most of them our concerned. We lost a game. That freaking Steve Young last night running his trap. He makes me sick. He was talking up the Colts last night after the game. I couldn't believe how they were talking about them getting back on track. They scored 3 points against the Browns. It looks to me like the wheels are falling off.

    The talking heads are so stupid. The Jets beat us then they were the best. Then the Jets lost and the Steelers beat the Patriots so now they're the best. **** I hope Houston Just wins out and wins the Super Bowl. Just to watch the bobble heads self implode.
