Some of the pats fans here don't deserve this in the slightest, but I would have claimed it if the colts lost and the reality of it is no different because the pats lost.
This is not season ending. Not even in the slightest. It may have eliminated the pats from having homefield throughout the playoffs but thats it.
The colts still have 7 games left and could lose a few. The pats may not lose another game. Teams have won the superbowl as the 6th seed and as the 1st seed in their conference.
There's a lot of football yet to play and should these two teams play again, there are both things for each to look forward to and thing for each to be concerned about.
