Was the game everything you hoped for? The Patriots defeated the Colts 24-20 thanks to 14 unanswered points in the 4th Quarter. The Colts defense was able to stop the high powered Patriots offense for most of the game. But the last two drives of the game, the Patriots were able to strike at will. Including the go ahead touchdown drive, a drive that only lasted 43 seconds. Both teams showed their muscle during the game and had costly turnovers. They more than anything showed that they aren't flawless which may play into other teams hands during the course of the season. You could see weaknesses in pass protection, pass coverage, and even in penalties for both teams. Look for teams to exploit these weaknesses during the up coming weeks. The Patriots played their best when the game was on the line and turned what looked like a loss into an important win, giving them a 2 game lead for home field advantage.
