Colts are a 21-point underdog against Patriots

The switch to Dan Orlovsky at quarterback by the Indianapolis Colts doesn't exactly have Vegas oddsmakers brimming with confidence about their chances this weekend.

As Tom Weir of USA Today.com points out, the 0-11 Colts are a 21-point underdog as they travel to New England in a game that many times in the past has been the class of the AFC. Not anymore.

With no Peyton Manning, the Colts have hit rock bottom and are the first 20-point underdog in the NFL since 2007 when the Patriots were on their 16-0 rampage and were favored by 20 or more points four times that season.

But take heart, Colts fans, in none of the four times the Patriots were favored by such a large margin did they cover that season. In fact, two of the games were decided by field goals.

Just be glad the Colts don't have Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on the schedule.
