FOXBOROUGH, MA. - Tom Brady can save the spectacular for the career highlight film -- or perhaps even next week.

Andrew Luck has no choice but to save it for another playoff season, as there will most assuredly be many more opportunities for the young NFL star.

There wasn’t a touchdown pass for Brady on Saturday night, as he led the New England Patriots to a methodical and only briefly tight 43-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts in an AFC Divisional playoff contest.

In fact, there wasn’t more than a play or two that you would remember from Brady, as the Patriots pounded home a franchise-record six rushing TDs in front of a wet and deliriously wild crowd at Gillette Stadium.

But most importantly, in the context of what unfolded between the 36-year-old Brady and the phenom in making who is 12 years his junior, the winningest quarterback in NFL playoff history did not turn the ball over.
