With a first-round AFC playoff bye all sewn up, the Indianapolis Colts look to rest most of their starters in their regular season finale - but not until they set some personal records.
The INDIANAPOLIS STAR notes that some individual marks are on the line against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday:
• QB Peyton Manning only needs 55 yards passing to reach 4,000 for the year - and extend his own record for consecutive 4,000-yard seasons to 8.
• And he can throw 8 of those passes to Reggie Wayne, who needs the catches and 77-yards to reach 100 catches & 1,500 yards for the season.
• Peyton can also fling a few to Dallas Clark, who needs 129 yards to move up to #3 on the all-time club receiving record for tight ends.
• A couple of red-zone handoffs to Joseph Addai could help the Colts’ RB set some season rushing records: 2 TDs would give Joe 14 on the year, third-best ever for the team; 6 TDs will break the season record of 17 set by Edgerrin James in 1999.
So, there’s still plenty at stake at the RCA Dome this weekend. At least until halftime - then the Jim Sorgi Experience gets ready to rock the house!
