I think manning and the colts are just a bit more offensively talented. 24 points allowed on one of the best offenses in the league, on the first night, is nothing to worry about.
You should worry! If it wasn't for the two fumbles by James (one on the freekin' 1 yards line) and the Peyton interception, NE would have lose. Make no mistake about it, NE did not win this game...IND GAVE it away!!! Peyton is starting to figure out the NE D and that spells trouble if they meet in the playoffs. NE's D is over-rated. With the lose of Washington, any team with a decent running game will run wild against NE. They will not be the best D in FF this year....that honor will go to either BAL or CAR
