What's at Stake?
The Colts have nothing but pride at stake here. As sad as that is, their biggest concern is getting the top overall pick and finding a new direction for the team. New England will use this win to secure a better spot in the playoffs and will hone their moves against the Colts' mediocre defense.

Fantasy: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em and Sleeper
Start 'Em: Wes Welker, Patriots
The Colts do not have a player that can cover Welker. Plain and Simple. I expect over 100 yards and a touchdown at the very least.
Sit 'Em: BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Patriots
Two touchdowns last week has fantasy owners ready to hop back on the Law Firm’s bandwagon. Not so fast. The Patriots will be up early and will look to spread the ball out between their three running backs.
Sleeper: Reggie Wayne, Colts
The Colts are going to simplify the offense for new quarterback Dan Orlovsky and that means plenty of deep routes for Reggie Wayne against the very beatable Patriots secondary. With the Colts down early, it may be a big passing day for Orlovsky.
What They're Saying
Spreadapedia is reporting on twitter:
Boston Herald beat reporter covering the New England Patriots Ian R. Rapoport is reporting on twitter:
Key Matchup: Dan Orlovsky vs. Patriots Secondary
The Colts will be marching out another quarterback to slaughter when Dan Orlovsky takes the snaps against the Patriots this week. With the New England secondary being as weak as it has been all season, the only way for Indianapolis to get any points will be if Orlovsky bombs to Reggie Wayne or Pierre Garcon.
Prediction: Patriots 44, Colts 24
