FAMILIAR FOES: The New England Patriots defeated the Indianapolis Colts 31-28 at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. The teams met for the eighth season in a row (2003-2010), the longest streak among non-division opponents since realignment in 2002.  Including the postseason, Sunday marked the sixth consecutive meeting decided by seven points or fewer. The Colts earned a last-minute 35-34 victory in Week 10 of last season.

Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY has now won 25 consecutive games at Gillette Stadium, tying him with BRETT FAVRE for the most consecutive regular-season home wins as a starting quarterback.
