The under smells like a possible sucker bet to me. Watch this is the week where the Skins go off and a bunch of people lose their rent money on the under.

I remember earlier in the year there was a really low over/under on a Dolphins game and everyone was jumping all over it, and it easily went over, I forgot against who though.

Here's a tidbit I ran across:

The Indy Colts are starting their fifth different offensive line combination in the last six weeks because of injuries across the line. That's not something QBs wish for!

However, Peyton Manning has been throwing TD passes at a record rate and he has only been sacked a half-dozen times all year. How is that OL getting it done?

The fact that Manning gets the ball out so quickly has something to do with it. He knows the offense and his teammates like the back of his hand. The way the entire offense sells the playaction is also another reason teams don't tee off and rush hard.

Did anybody catch NFL Live the other night? They were breaking down this play of the Colts against the Chiefs, Manning threw one of the prettiest balls I've ever seen to Harrison. It was a double move by Harrison, he faked to the corner and came back to a post and Manning threw the ball before Harrison even made his first break, simply amazing the timing they have.

Look, Manning is having the best season EVER at QB. He's back there in the shotgun reading defenses like a book, and then throwing perfectly. As for the o-line, I don't know which linemen went down, but I bet even the backups have been there a while. And (and this is a crucial point, I think) when you are winning, it's contagious. People start making plays and stepping up all over the field. In sports--and everywhere else--momentum is vital. Right now, if Manning fumbled, it would probably be picked up by one of those backup linemen for an 80-yard score. Meanwhile, we can't run a play without some disaster ensuing. When it rains, it pours!

JW, I agree with what you say about Manning and the fact that wining is contagious. But on Thanksgiving, they said that the Guards and Center for Indy were all rookies
