2. Dwight Freeney vs. Matt Light
Matt Light has been the Patriots starter at left tackle since 2001. Dwight Freeney has been the Colts' speed-rushing right end since 2002. They have had some classic battles through the years, but the majority have gone in Light's favor: Freeney has three sacks in seven regular-season games against the Patriots in his career. This year, he has 5.5 sacks through 11 games, a low total by his standards, but explicable since the Colts' opponent is rarely playing from behind these days. But the Patriots know he is still dangerous.
