Patriots versus Colts is a Hall of Fame rivalry

Pats-Colts rivalry could continue as a marque match-up minus Manning


Going into last night’s game, the Pat enjoyed a 47-29 edge in series that dates back to 1970 when the Patriots played in Boston and the Colts were Baltimore’s storied football franchise. Both teams were rivals in the AFC’s Eastern Division. While the Pats seemed to have dominated the series, the games have been competitive — half of them decided by a touchdown or less. The Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 after winning three NFL titles and later moved into the AFC South Division in 2002. That’s when the former division rivals really became rivals.
