How NFC West stacks up with Colts
If the Rams made it here, for example, the big story might be Peyton Manning vs. Keith Null.
(Please hold your laughter until the end.)
I've broken out the Colts' offensive starters and compared them to those for the Cardinals, 49ers, Seahawks and Rams. In the Rams' case, I wasn't sure who would start at left guard after Roger Allen suffered a serious knee injury in Week 17, so I've brought back usual starter Jacob Bell from injured reserve.
Putting together something similar for the defenses would be tough because the 49ers and Cardinals play 3-4 schemes, so the positions would not line up.
Enjoy the imaginary games.
