We blogged about it during the week, and after all the early game craziness today, this game now becomes a big, BIG game for both the Colts and Chargers. The last time Indy was in SD, it was a rainy, dark, gloomy game that saw Adam Vinatieri miss a gimme FG, Peyton Manning throw 6 INTs, and Dwight Freeney break his foot. Are the Colts looking for revenge? Redemption? Pay back? No. This is all about just getting a big win against a tough opponent also playing for their playoff lives.
A key injury note: Bob Sanders will not play. Melvin Bullitt is starting a strong safety.
I hope you enjoyed DaBolts' cross-blogging with us all week. He is a wonderful addition to SB Nation, and for a Chargers fan's take on the game, check out Bolts From The Blue. It is late November and the games are getting tough, nasty, and heated. This one should be no different than all the other big games today. Here is to a good, clean game.
