Thursday Night

Thursday night hosts the Colts at the Patriots in Foxboro. According to  NFL.com history says that the Patriots have dominated this matchup. Brady is 5-0 against Luck and the Colts are playing without their high flying air attacker T.Y Hilton (out with hamstring and chest). It could stand to reason this could go to a 6-0 record with the return of Edelman to the Patriots roster. Time will tell and Luck may have to rely on that newly repaired shoulder as they could most likely be playing from behind this entire game.
