article imagePro Football: Colts attempt to keep its perfect streak going

By Michael Bearak     Dec 27, 2009 in Sports
The Indianapolis Colts took one more step closer a week ago moving to 14-0. Last week the Dallas Cowboys shocked the football world upsetting the New Orleans Saints. Now football fans are left with just one.
Every other NFL team has lost at least one game; the Dallas Cowboys saw to that dispatching the New Orleans Saints last weekend. That left the NFL with just one undefeated team, the Indianapolis Colts. Questions start getting louder and louder about the possibility of an undefeated season. The closest thing since the 1972 Miami Dolphins was the New England Patriots who were perfect all the way until they lost in the Super Bowl to the New York Giants.
Today the New York Jets are coming to visit the Indianapolis Colts. Last week the Jacksonville Jaguars put a scare into the Colts who pulled out a 35-31 victory. The Jaguars game was on the road in Jacksonville, this week in is the dome, home sweet home for the Colts.
The last team to beat the Indianapolis Colts was the San Diego Chargers who beat then in the Wild Card round of the 2008 playoffs, which ended a 12-5 season for them. Right now the Colts have a bye through the first week of the playoffs and the Chargers are the second best team in the AFC so they wouldn't meet until the AFC Championship game if the season were over right now.
Before that loss the Colts haven't lost a regular season game since week 8 of last season which was to the Tennessee Titans on the road. They haven't lost at home since week 3 of last season to the same team they beat last week the Jaguars.
After this Sunday's game against the Jets they have one game left against the Buffalo Bills, but it is going to be in Buffalo in January. You don't want to say upset, but it is outdoors, upstate New York in the middle of winter, if nothing else the weather shouldn't be friendly.
