This Sunday, the 6-3, rookie led Indianapolis Colts will face the 6-3 New England Patriots. If the Colts can somehow beat the Patriots, they will be in the driver’s seat for a playoff spot and considered by some to be a legit playoff team.
With the team focused on this Sunday’s big game, they were surprised with a visit by their head coach Chuck Pagano.
Pagano has been away from the team since week four when he was diagnosed with leukemia.
“It was a beautiful moment,” interim coach Bruce Arians said. “He came and enjoyed a good bunch of sunshine and talked to the guys and it was another beautiful day.”
“It caught everybody by surprise,” receiver Reggie Wayne said. “That was a great finishing to a great day of practice. Like I said, whenever he is able to address the team, give us a little words of wisdom, it’s always a great feeling.”
“I’ve seen it so many times where a group of guys band together, and different slogans, ‘Won’t be denied,’ this or that or whatever, they all come up with something, this is just, ’1-2-3-Chuck,’” Arians said.
The first time Pagano visited the team, they beat the Green Bay Packers. The second time he delivered a speech and they went out and beat the Miami Dolphins.
Could the Patriots be in for an upset this weekend?
