With the help of Rookie Wide Receiver Austin Collie, Peyton Manning took the #1 defense in the country apart. He throw for over 350 yards which is something the Jets have not allowed all season. He also had 3 TD passes something which is also not normal for the Jets. Not only did Peyton Manning put on a show but the much over looked Colts defense did good as well.
They Jets are the #1 rushing offense in the league and the Colts defense held them to 85 yards rushing in the game and forced Sanchez to go to the air.
But now I think something which I should also point out is how good Rookie Mark Sanchez held out. Most said that Sanchez wasn't much of a threat to opposing teams but in the big game Sanchez showed up. He had 12 touchdowns and 20 interceptions during his rookie season but in the playoffs he turned it around with 4 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions he also averaged 150 yards passing a game during the season but turned it up to 190 during the playoffs.
But although I think Sanchez is improving by leaps and bounds I also think the Colts Defense is also starting to make team not only plan their game around Peyton but plan their game around a tough Colts defense.
With the up coming Super Bowl it seems like everyone think that the Saints will destroy what is thought to be a bad Colts defense but what is not seen is that the Saints passing defense is ranked 28th in the country while the Colts is ranked 13th. Also this is the first time the Saints have been to the Super Bowl while the Colts just went 3 years ago.
So my prediction for the Super Bowl is a Colts upset 38-24.
