Super Bowl XLI: Bears V. Colts
Trailing 21-3 at one point in the first half, the Colts managed a record-breaking comeback to defeat the New England Patriots 38-34 to claim the AFC title. Coach Dungy credited the Lord with the win. For the first time in the franchise's history in Indianapolis, the Colts will make an appearance in the Super Bowl, facing off against the NFC winning-Chicago Bears. Peyton Manning finally proves he can win the big game. I personally didn't think he could do it. I suspect NFL broadcasters aren't too excited about having two neigbhoring Midwest teams in the Super Bowl game in Miami this year. The matchup may not produce the ratings a Patriot-Bears matchup would have earned, but it will definitely give folks in the northern part of the state, who are primarily Bears fans, plenty to debate with Colts fans in the rest of the state between now and February 4. GO COLTS!
