In one of the marquee games in week 11 of the NFL the Indianapolis Colts vs New England Patriots feature two of the top stars in the league.
The veteran quarterback Tom Brady will host the rookie Andrew Luck and the upstart Indianapolis Colts.

Brady should be able to dissect the Colts defense on every level.
The Colts’ pass D ranks 15th in the NFL averaging 230.2 net yards allowed per game, but they’ve coughed up 15 pass TDs to date – almost four times as many TDs as interceptions generated (four, dead last in the NFL).
Last week, even Jacksonville put up credible numbers against this defense.
Although the Patriots defense has been a problem in the past, look for an inspired effort in this outing. The Patriots played poor defensively a week ago against the Buffalo Bills, but the NFL trends suggest they will rebound with a good outing against the Colts.
The Patriots are 20-6-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 27 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.
The major difference in this game will be Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Belichick loves to implement new schemes to offset the opposing quarterbacks and seems to take greater joy in beating highly touted quarterbacks. He did it with Peyton Manning and will do it again with Andrew Luck.
Brady torches the Colts through the air and Luck will be completely confused by the defensive scheme of the Patriots. All that will equate to a big win by the Patriots this Sunday.
