Super Bowl: Colts vs. Saints
The biggest football event of the year has arrived! It’s Super Bowl 44 and every football fans don’t want to miss this game. This year’s NFL Championship Game aka “Super Bowl” is between Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints.
Today, February 7, the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints will collide at the Sun Life Stadium in Florida to decide the National Football League champion for the 2009 season.
The Colts and Saints are a great match up but experience wise, Indianapolis has the advantage as their most important players have been in this situation before, 19 Colts have championship experience, that is if you don’t add Tim Jennings and T.J Rushing, who were inactive for Super Bowl 41.
In Super Bowl XLI, the Colts defeated the Chicago Bears 29-17 and three years later here they are again in the same field but different opponent. The Saints, on the other hand, only have four players in their squad who have already stepped in the Super Bowl field. They are Kyle Eckel, Randayll Gay, Jason Kyle and Darren Sharper.
If you think that it’s just another game and experience doesn’t matter, then you are wrong, because in Super Bowl, expectations are higher, pressure is above the limit, and cheers are wilder.
