The Patriots are the NFL's hottest team with five straight victories, including a romp past the Broncos before last week's bye. A win over Indy could set them up for home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs.
After besting Peyton Manning, Tom Brady now faces off with Andrew Luck.
"He's a great player," Brady says. "He's in his third year, and he's had a lot of success.
"They score a lot of points, especially at home, and he's kind of the ring leader. He does a lot of things I wish I could do. He's big, fast, shrugs off blockers. He makes a lot of extended plays. He's a great passer."
Luck has similar thoughts about Brady.
"Yeah, I think if you're a fan of football, it's hard not to be a fan of Tom Brady," Luck says. "He's obviously got the respect of everybody around the league, every fan, every player. He does things at a high level, and he's done it for a long, long time and seems to go about it the right way."
