Saints' run offense vs. Colts' run defense The Saints had the sixth-ranked ground game this season, and the Colts finished 24th against the run. Still, this isn't the mismatch those numbers suggest. The Colts improved dramatically in that department as the season went on, and their numbers only got worse again when they mailed in games at the end of the season. Edge: Colts. Saints' pass offense vs. Colts' pass defense It all starts with Drew Brees, and he has so many weapons and ways to get them the ball.

Colin Cloherty was a seldom-used tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, his third team in his first two years in the NFL, when the league locked out its players at the start of a long, contentious labor showdown in 2011. A former standout at Brown, where he double-majored in history and political science, Cloherty pored over every memo the National Football League Players Association sent to its players after the union decertified and sued the NFL, and he listened intently during every conference call.

This Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts face the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV to determine this season's NFL Champion. Unbeknownst to the Colts, they face another opponent on Super Bowl Sunday -- the historical image of themselves -- the Baltimore Colts. Super Bowl XLIV will be the 438th game (counting all regular season and postseason games) the Colts have played since the team moved to Indianapolis in 1984. Between 1953 and 1983, the Baltimore Colts played exactly 438 games.

You can trust in Brady Dom Amore Hartford Courant As has been the case for much of its history, the NFL is short on greatness at the quarterback position. The list of field generals who truly combine all the skills, including intangibles, is short. For me, Tom Brady still resides at the top. One big game, who else would you want? Who else would you trust? Sunday was the latest in a long list of examples in which Brady, when relatively healthy, will bring his "A" game and avoid the mistakes that loom large when everyone is tuned in. Peyton Manning, sensational as he is, can still be haunted by the crushing interception.

Peyton Manning doesn't like to waste time. So, for instance, when the Indianapolis quarterback runs on the treadmill, he doesn't just chug along like everyone else. He practices the two-minute drill while jogging, gesturing and calling out plays as he racks up the miles. "The first time I saw that I was like, 'What is he doing?' " Colts guard Ryan Lilja said. "I'd never seen that before, but then I realized it makes perfect sense. This guy is a next-level thinker." For one NFL team -- either Manning's Colts or the New Orleans Saints -- the next level is just four quarters away.

NEW ORLEANS — Lights, camera … satisfaction? The Vikings will be looking for some of that Thursday night when they open the NFL season against the Saints in a rematch of last season's NFC championship game. Statistically, the Vikings thoroughly outplayed the Saints when they last met — except for five turnovers. The Saints took advantage of those miscues and rode them all the way to Super Bowl XLIV, where they knocked off the Colts to claim their first Lombardi Trophy.

The New Orleans Saints vs. the Indianapolis Colts is the Super Bowl most Americans wanted to see. Almost every football fan has ties to a local team, but once you get past those, this is the perfect game. This is The Game. NFL executives know that Americans love offense, which is why they often change rules that contribute to scoring and why they are giggling all over themselves about Super Bowl XLIV in Miami on Feb. 7. It doesn't get much better than this. You get the No. 1 teams from each conference, and two of the highest scoring offenses in the league.

- Colts coach Jim Caldwell knows choosing between % Adam Vinatieri and Matt Stover to kick a potential winning field goal in Super Bowl XLIV on Sunday is like picking between a classic Lexus or Mercedes-Benz. Both may have plenty of tread on the tires, but they're clutch when it counts. "We've been blessed to have both," Caldwell said. "I saw a couple of weeks ago both were (nominated) on the all-decade team. … You can't get much better than that." Caldwell will give the keys to Stover, simply because he doesn't believe that Vinatieri is 100 percent recovered from knee surgery in mid-October, his third operation since last summer, including a hip procedure.
