Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are headed to a third consecutive AFC Championship Game, and the team’s eighth since 2001, after a decisive 43-22 trouncing of the Indianapolis Colts.

Unlike last weekend’s wild-card round matchup against the Chiefs, Andrew Luck was able to shake off his mistakes and mount the dramatic comeback. Luck was intercepted four times by the Pats’ defense, finishing with 331 yards and two touchdowns.

And while New England found the end zone six times on Saturday night, none came from Brady. It was LeGarrette Blount with four touchdowns on 24 carries and 166 yards and Stevan Ridley who added two more rushing TD’s on 14 carries and 52 yards.

Brady completed just 13 of his 25 attempts for 198 yards. He connected with Julian Edelman six times for 84 yards to lead New England’s air attack

After the Colts were able to make it a seven-point game late in third quarter, Blount found daylight – 73 yards to pay dirt – pushing the score to 36-22 and driving a dagger into Indianapolis.

T.Y. Hilton lead all wide outs with 103 yards on four catches. LaVon Brazill had both of Indy’s TD catches.
