That was with Peyton Manning at the controls, so it's sort of a useless stat given the 2011 edition of the Colts and their 2-8 ATS ways.

Now that the Colts are in a one-team race for the services of Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, it's worth wondering if Indianapolis is even an appealing destination for the certain No. 1 draft pick. Earlier this season, NFL Network reported there's some fear in the league that Luck could demand a trade to avoid playing for a particular team at the top of the draft board...
PFT's 10-pack: Two weeks ago, many were singing the praises of Peyton Manning’s kid brother. Since then, Eli has been playing like the evil twin of Tony Romo.
