Week 13 Defense/ST

T’s Getting Defensive With Patriots vs Ind The Pats would have been a good start if Curtis Painter was the QB, let alone Dan Orlovsky.  I don’t care if they have Julian Edelman, Wes Welker, hell even Troy Brown playing defensive back for them.  The Colts are a 20 point underdog for a reason. Play ‘Em Cowboys @ AZ Kevin ...
