FAST START- The Patriots have had a lot of slow starts. With a game that is at 9:30 in the morning, they better be ready to go or it could be a long bye week. The Colts have no problem running the ball once they get ahead in a game. Of course the Colts run defense isn't that great, so if the Patriots could take an early lead they might be able to use a lot of clock as well.
IT'S THE PITTS- Michael Pittman hasn't done much damage against the Patriots in their previous meetings. He is coming off a week where he caught all 8 of the balls thrown his direction. Since both Alec Pierce and Josh Downs were limited this week in practice, Pittman is likely to be the most likely deep threat.
