BOSTON (CBS) – With the Indianapolis Colts bringing their 0-11 record to Gillette Stadium this weekend, there is not much riding on what is usually one of the NFL’s best rivalries.

But there are a pair of Colts on their defense (yes, their 29th ranked defense) the New England Patriots will have to focus on.

How will the Patriots make sure defensive ends Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney are kept off of Tom Brady? Both have 5.5 sacks this season, and Brady has already made it clear he wants nothing to do with Freeney on Sunday.

Which blockers, or receivers acting as blockers, will have to step up and help? And is there any way the Patriots lose Sunday’s game?

And how will Indy’s new defensive coordinator play a role in this game?
