Peyton Manning has revolutionized the quarterback position, that much is quite clear. But Manning is still only one man and, despite valiant attempts, one man cannot carry an entire offense. Manning owes a lot of his success to a powerful rushing attack that has to be respected by opposing defenses. Joseph Addai consistently provides Manning with options both in the rushing and passing games whether he's running, blocking, or catching and has shown he's willing to bear whatever load necessary to help his team win. How does this open up the game for Peyton? Find out by clicking here!

One common description of Indy's offense is "explosive". The Colts have the highly-coveted ability to find the weakness in a single play and make you pay for it.

Click here and see why this is a key characteristic and what impact it's already had this season!
