The Colts have toiled in the Patriots' shadow in the AFC this season, but according to Scouts Inc., the Indianapolis defensive secondary is second to none among all playoff teams. Bob Sanders is a known commodity and one of the best defensive players in the league when healthy. He is a game changer and a nasty physical presence. The Colts also have two young players who fly under the radar: CB Marlin Jackson and FS Antoine Bethea. Both have come on in a big way this year and have bright futures in the NFL.
