This is a special day, which means it's a good opportunity to highlight some good stuff written by our people earlier this week.
Nick Ragsdale, aka Mr. Predictification, had this to say regarding the Broncos v. Colts game that some of you might be watching later this evening:
Denver Broncos (6-0) at Indianapolis Colts (4-2)
Line - Broncos by 6.5
This one will be fun. I will be at the game and I'm looking forward to showing my appreciation to Peyton Manning during pregame - and then cheering and being as loud as possible when Manning is trying to run his audibles.
This game will come down to one thing: Emotion. Whoever handles it better is going to win the game. Manning will undoubtedly be dealing with a swell of emotions and he will want to play well - which may work against him. On the other hand, the Colts don't have many holdovers from the Manning Era and shouldn't be as emotional. Indianapolis seems to win these types of games (Packers, 49ers, Seahawks) more often than they lose them - and Manning seems to lose them more than win them (but I still love Peyton).
I'm taking the Colts to win it.
COLTS WIN 34-31
