Andrew Luck simply couldn't keep up with a rampant Patriots team. He looked good at avoiding the constant pass rush the Patriots sent at him, and kept poise most times in the pocket. However, He was constantly forced to throw early, leading him to throw three interceptions. And while the Colts got their run defense together, they couldn't contain Brady, with Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis having little effect on Brady, who wasn't sacked all game.
Things were different than the regular Pats-Colts rivalry game, but nothing changed from the way Brady played in these encounters. He showed such poise and presence in the pocket, and was constantly able to pick up first downs, 20 of the Patriots 25 first downs were achieved through the pass.
A very good win, and convincing against a team that was also 6-3 going into the encounter. The Patriots now go to 7-3 giving them a healthy 3 game lead over all AFC East teams, going into their thanksgiving night clash against the New York Jets.
