Marker Colts/Bills [1:29 PM]

Marker It's up to Johnson to prove he can bounce back [8:59 AM]

Marker Prime-time elimination game [5:04 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: 'Tonight, with their playoff hopes flickering in the cold night air and AFC East rival Buffalo in town, the Colts can speak to ABC's national audience. Their on-field oratory, though, may fall on deaf ears when it comes to earning a postseason berth.'

Marker Lamey teaches there is always hope for Colts [4:57 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: 'In order for the Colts to make the playoffs, the following things have to happen, in this precise order: The Colts have to win every game. Everybody else has to lose every game.'

Marker Don't Dump Wade -- Yet [10:45 PM]
Buffalo Post reports: 'Phillips' country-boy manner makes him an easy target. His responses
to media queries sometimes meander around the point and sometimes miss it
altogether.'

Marker Wilson praises Phillips' job performance [9:10 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think Wade has done a very good job," Wilson said this week. "He made the playoffs the first two years he was head coach. I think maybe for some people, if you don't make the playoffs every year, then you fire the coach. Hah. Well, I don't feel that way. I think he's done a very good job, particularly with all the players we lost in the offseason."'

Marker Wings, prayers and tattoos [9:08 AM]

Marker Wiley's tracks lead to quarterback [7:13 AM]
Indianapolis Star reports: '"He's a speed rusher around the end, but he's good against the run as well."'

Marker Turn Out The Lights... [10:59 AM]
Buffalo Post reports: 'As a result, Monday night's game means a little more to the winner
than the loser. But not much.'

Marker Fading down the stretch [9:00 AM]
