The Colts will play the New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami on February 7. Ironically enough, the last time Indianapolis played in the Super Bowl -- Super Bowl XLI -- the game was also played in Miami. Two Sundays ago, the Colts defeated the New York Jets, 30-17, to win the NFL's American Conference title.
