Peyton Manning, Questions Over Colts' Future Could Impact Decision to Draft Andrew Luck

With each passing defeat, the Colts move closer to one of the most fascinating storylines in NFL offseason history.

New Orleans Saints Week 7 Recap: Perfect Game Plan Realized

The New Orleans Saints christened the newly named, and now beautifully lighted on the outside, Mercedes-Benz Superdome in proper fashion by executing a near flawless game plan against their rivals from Super Bowl XLIV, the Indianapolis Colts, last night.
