Colts' focus should be on Super Bowl, not 16-0

Decisions, decisions, decisions. That is what could be facing the Indianapolis Colts as they head toward the end of the season. With five games to play, the Colts are sitting pretty at 11-0. The way they are playing right now, home-field advantage is almost a lock.
What are they playing for then? Well, they are playing to keep themselves in sync. You want to make sure no bad habits creep into your game down the stretch. You want to keep that same rhythm on both sides of the ball that has lifted you to a perfect start. It is a good time to work some younger players onto the field a little more in certain situations. You never know if that young player may have to step onto the field and make a play in the postseason. Oh yeah, did I mention you are also playing for perfection? That is right, perfection.
With five weeks remaining in the regular season, the Colts have a chance to do something no team in history has ever done. Yes, the 1972 Dolphins went undefeated. However, they played only a 14-game regular season. The Colts have a chance to run the table and go 16-0.
