Video: Reiss' P.A.T. on Patriots-Colts

By ESPNBoston.com



If you’ve got a couple of minutes to spare (OK, 2:22 to be exact), you’ve got to check out Reiss’ P.A.T. this week (video above). ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss gives his take on two hot topics surrounding Sunday’s matchup against the Colts and dips into the mailbag to answer a couple of reader questions. A quick summary:

* Topic 1: Who are you taking, Tom Brady or Peyton Manning?
While Reiss admits he probably would have picked Peyton a year ago, he is back in the Brady camp after seeing vintage Brady last week.

* Which Patriots team are you going to get Sunday, the one that got embarrassed in Cleveland or the one that beat Pittsburgh decisively on the road?
A glance at the record (7-2) tells you New England has been on its game more often than not, so Reiss thinks the Pats will have their ‘A’ game Sunday at home.

Mailbag questions answered
* Can the Patriots replicate their offensive performance against the Steelers?

* Worried about the Patriots allowing the Steelers to score 23 points in the fourth quarter?
