Our second feature game is the Colts and Patriots, hopefully there is more offense (at least Touchdowns) in this game.

Colts and Patriots traded 3 and outs, then the Colts went 90 yards in 8 plays. Nice PossessionPoints drive. (Sure beats field goals)

Patriots get field goal on nice 4 minute, 52 second drive. To bad it was only a field goal but it was worth almost another 20 PossessionPoints.

Patriots decide not to mess with the red zone and strike from 61 yards out. Not much in the way of PossessionPoints with that drive since it was only 51 seconds long.

Patriots turn "yellow" in PossessionPoints. That's a good half but they aren't yet at the point where we say they have a 75% chance of winning. Anybody think Peyton Manning and the Colts can't come back from this?

Colts answer back relatively quickly. This game looks like it could be heading for what we call a "green" - "green" shootout.

The lack of scoring in the 3rd quarter may put a crimp in the idea that both of these teams will turn green. While still possible, that last score took only 42 seconds so once again not a lot of PossessionPoints.

A quick answer by the Colts, 2 minutes and 4 seconds now has them in the "Yellow" in PossessionPoints. All yellow, looks like our other feature games, most games don't end all yellow. We will see.

Patriots got very close to "green". Less than 4 PossessionPoints away. Still officially yellow but they are looking pretty good with a 13 point lead and only 4 minutes left.

Not over yet, Colts answer quickly. Guess that is why it is all yellow. Anybody's game. Patriots need to make a couple of first downs.

That's it, the Patriots played well but even when we said they were looking good we noted they hadn't turned green. Funny how that seems to happen. And it happens a lot with PossessionPoints. The Colts got to the Green level and won the game. The Patriots were just short.

This is a big game for the AFC North, the winner is definitely in the drivers seat for the AFC North division championship. All games start like the chart to the right appears. As scores occur, the numbers will change and in time so will the colors. We will comment as the game goes on.

Field goals drives don't usually add up to wins. The Steelers need to get it in the end zone. Their defense has been good but their offense is still "red".

Bengals finally get some PossessionPoints but even this score was set up by their defense. Defenses are playing well neither team has had any sustained offense by the PossessionPoints stat.

Another field goal for the Bengals has them out of the red. By our measure we would have to say we wouldn't be surprised if the Steelers do come to life and win. They have shown no signs of life yet but the Bengals haven't turned green either.
