Colts' Allen says Patriots could have used 'soap for balls' and still won

While the NFL world is buzzing about the New England Patriots and "Deflategate," one person seems to be rolling his eyes. That man?

Colts TE: Pats could've 'played with soap for balls and beat us'

DeflateGate is a non-issue according to the majority of people and at least one Indianapolis Colts player.

Patriots-Seahawks Super Bowl Preview: Russell Wilson Faces Big Challenge

Don’t put too much stock in the NFC Championship Game while sizing up the Seattle Seahawks against the New England Patriots. No offense to the Green Bay Packers, but the only reason why they were even able to give away that game was because of the horrible start by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson threw three interceptions in the first half and added another late in...

New England Prepares for New Indianapolis

For every Patriots fan that understands the embarrassment of that September loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, and how irrelevant that game is to what's going on now with the team, you can appreciate how Indianapolis has distanced itself from the mid-November spanking they received from the Pats.  Yes, there's the oft-sighted ground game domination of 246 yards from that day with Jonas...

Patriots’ Defense Could Shake Up Matchups Against Colts Receivers

Covering Coby Fleener wasn’t supposed to be an issue in Week 11. It seemed that the New England Patriots had the perfect player to cover the Indianapolis Colts tight end after last season’s divisional-round playoff walloping. Linebacker Jamie Collins held Fleener to two catches for just 12 yards on five targets in the Patriots’ 43-22 win, while other defenders allowed four...

Colts take the next step…to AFC Championship game

Colts tight end Dwayne Allen(Photo: Indianapolis Colts) The Colts went into Denver the underdog. Few people outside of Indianapolis gave them a chance. They hadn’t won big enough games. They didn’t play many good teams. They didn’t have a strong enough offensive line or a tough enough defense. They couldn’t win a playoff game on the road. The Colts left Denver the team headed...

Andrew Luck to Dwayne Allen for touchdown (GIF)

Dwayne Allen had eight regular season touchdowns, he added another one to his resume in Sunday’s AFC Divisional Round game. The reception from Allen was for three yards and gave the Colts a 14-7 lead. Not bad for a team that entered this game as underdogs and has had to hear the rhetoric “their too young to win it all.” Something tells us this game is far from being over and...

Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts: 2014 Wild Card Round NFL Pick

Cincinnati Bengals (10-5-1) at Indianapolis Colts (11-5) In addition to adjusting playoff teams’ rate of moving the chains differentials for strength of schedule, another thing I did differently this week was breaking out schedule adjusted differential into a team’s last 4 games and into a team’s last 8 weeks instead of just the whole season.

NFL tight end power rankings: Did Dwayne Allen of the Colts crack the top ten?

The NFL is becoming a passing league more and more every year and nowhere is that more apparent than at the tight end position. Some teams still go the traditional route and use their tight ends primarily as blockers, but a growing number of contenders have tight ends that are better than even the best wide receivers at caching the ball. Former basketball stars like Jimmy Graham...

Are the Indianapolis Colts the New England Patriots biggest challenge?

While fans of the New England Patriots have been basking in the afterglow of the beat down put on the Denver Broncos a week and a half ago, the players have continued to work. As head coach Bill Belichick would say, “We’re on to Indianapolis.” As sweet as the Broncos win may have been, it was still only Week 9 of a 17-week regular season. There is a long way to go.
