I can't get over how awful Ryan Tannehill is too. He just threw a pass that you would be more apt to see in a Turkey Bowl game next month.

Both teams were given unsportsmanlike conducts at different points in one drive.

Mike Tolbert cost them a touchdown by getting into it with someone from St. Louis at the 1 yard line.

Glad to see no flag on the Bradford hit. He should have slid or went out sooner.

Dahl on the Rams should have got two penalties and thrown out for running back on the field.

There have been a lot of excuses made for Tom Brady over the course of the season, but with every game I watch, I am getting more and more convinced that he just doesn't have the accuracy he once had.

He doesn't. He's maybe 85 percent of what he was in his prime. He misses too many throws and gets antsy in the pocket. But 85% Prime Tom Brady is still a Super Bowl level quarterback, just not good enough to consistently overcome the incompetence of his receivers like he did in the pre 2007 years.

Colts are looking very good so far. Looks like it could be Denver's first loss.

I was fortunate enough to attend this game, and despite the media's attempt to blow Jim Irsay's (Colts' owner) comments earlier in the week out of both proportion and context, Indy will also owe Peyton Manning for any football-related event. This is not like Farve going back to Green Bay, or Gretzky going back to Edmonton, because those franchises were on stable footing without those players.

Before Manning arrived in Indy, the only two sports that mattered in central Indiana were basketball and girls basketball. The Colts were always rumored to be moving, and were almost always subject to local tv blackout. The Steelers, Packers, Browns, Bears, and Dolphins were all more popular than the home team. Arguably the Bengals and Ravens were too. College football was not really on the map, as Purdue had yet to live the Brees era and Notre Dame's influence was limited in Central Indiana. It was not uncommon for local high school fans to hope their football teams would not make playoff runs, because the boys need time to get there basketball legs before the season starts. Yes, a non-conference basketball game in November sometimes meant more to a community than a chance at a deep football playoff run.

Without Peyton Manning, we might not have the Colts. Also, Indiana University would probably not have a remodeled stadium. The Colts (if still here) would not have Lucas Oil Stadium. We would not have hosted a Superbowl, and thus would not have a handful of new hotels and restaraunts downtown. Indianapolis was recently rated by a recruiting service to be the third best recruiting area in the nation for high school football, and while I disagree with that rating, it speaks volumes of building a football culture. In the 2011-12 school year, the average Indiana high school football game drew more fans that the average high school basketball game. This is a state where many high school gyms have a greater seating capacity than the town's population, and no one would have believed this was possible 15 years ago.

Of course, outside of football, without #18 we would not have Peyton Manning Children's Hospital. We would not have the Pey-back foundation, which many local athletes and celebrities have used for positive impacts.

I attended a Colts game 2 weeks ago, and went to a bar near Lucas Oil stadium after the game. The Denver/Dallas game was on, and the place was packed with everyone in Colts jerseys, but screaming at the TVs for an undefeated AFC team to beat an NFC team, playoff seeding and home-field be damned. I doubt it was any louder during the Colts/Seahawks game a couple of hours before. Indianapolis cheered against Peyton Manning tonight on the field, but he is more popular in Indianapolis than any athlete still playing here. If Denver lasts longer than Indy in the NFL playoffs come January, downtown will be decorated orange as we all support our favorite opponent.

Tonight was difficult for a lot of Colts fans to watch, I saw more than one female fan crying as Manning waved to the corwd and mouthed his thank yous. We will always love #18, the way Clemente or Lemieux are loved in Pittsburgh. We were very fortunate to have the chance to show it on tv tonight.

Sorry for the rant, but I got really tired of the national story being so different from the local story the last month in the buildup to tonight.

6 weeks i think. Then you have 3 weeks to decide if you want to activate them. At least thats how it works from the beginning of the season I think.

The running back said this week he's hoping to put on shoulder pads at some point and join his teammates in practice. That's a possibility. Players like Lattimore who are on the non-football injury list are allowed a three-week window to practice with their teams any time between Week 6 and Week 11. At that point, they either are elevated to the active roster or shut down for the rest of the season.

It was very difficult and uncomfortable to root against Peyton Manning last night...I've never had to do that before. I'll admit, I teared up a little bit during that ovation when Peyton waved to the crowd and everything. Even when he was sacked or anything, it was difficult to really be, I don't know, like I said it was very uncomfortable to cheer against 18 - so unnatural.

On the funny side, my roommate got mad and called me a "homer" (only person that's ever called me a "homer" ever) when I said that the Hillman fumble recovery wasn't really reviewable...the league doesn't review or overturn a dogpile without a "clear recovery" which I honestly think is right - isn't it? It was close, but ultimately, there's nothing that's really challengeable about that play unless you wanted to review whether Hillman fumbled or not - which is auto-reviewed anyhow.
