Saints and Colts Headed to Super Bowl 2010
Two of the best teams will have a showdown in two weeks at the Super Bowl 2010. Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts will face-off against Drew Brees and New Orleans Saints. This is a game that many football fans have been looking forward to for months. Both teams remained undefeated for most of the season. The New Orleans Saints went 13-0 before they were taken down by the Dallas Cowboys. They subsequently lost the final games of the regular season, including one against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Indianapolis Colts faired a little bit better by going 14-2 after losing their last two regular season games.
The New Orleans Saints squeaked by with a 31-28 overtime win against Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game. . Peyton Manning had three touchdown passes in a 30-17 win against the New York Jets in the AFC Championship game in Indianapolis, IN on Sunday afternoon. This will be the first Super Bowl appearance for the Saints and the second appearance in four seasons for the Colts. Peyton Manning would love to walk away with another Super Bowl ring, but the Saints will be standing in his way. Drew Brees, Saints quarterback, came to New Orleans in 2006 a year after Hurricane Katrina and a 3-13 season for the Saints. He and the ensemble of Saints players and coaches have worked improve their team dramatically.
With such strong and dynamic teams playing in the Super Bowl this will be a game to remember as one of the best ever played.
