The Patriots were undefeated at home this year, making Foxborough, Mass., an extremely tough place to play at.

While Brady has been known as one of the best quarterbacks to play in the clutch, Luck has begun to develop a reputation for late-game heroics as well. Since Luck joined the Colts, Indianapolis is 14-2 in games decided by seven points or less.

Luck has faced off against Brady only one time in his career, one that he would love to delete from his memory. Last season, Luck's Colts suffered a 54-29 loss at the hand of Brady's Patriots, and Luck had four turnovers in the game. With much more at stake this time around, Luck will look to improve his play and lead the Colts to victory.

Both teams have signed wide receivers that formerly played for the opponent. The Colts signed Deion Branch, who formerly won a Super Bowl MVP honor with New England, and the Patriots signed former Colts receiver and BYU graduate Austin Collie.
