Five Thoughts Before Kickoff

Should be a Blowout Thursday's Night

A. Get off to a quick start - talking to the Colts writers it would take a miracle (maybe greater than that of the Noah's Ark story) for them to win Thursday Night. So don't let the Colts even think they have a chance.

B. Block Colts DE Jabaal Sheard, who had 13 sacks when he was with the Pats. He is the only threat on the Colts defensive line.

C. Get out of the game without any injuries because the Pats face a big test next week against Kansas City.

D. Give Colts wide receivers Chester Rodgers and Ryan Grant a hug. They are without T.Y. Hilton, Jack Doyle and Marlon Mack. It will be a tough night for Rodgers and Grant. They can tell their grandchildren they were on the field with Tom Brady.

E. When Adam Vinatieri hits a field goal - just think how lucky New England is to have had two great kickers since 1996. Matt Bahr was not bad before that.
