Peter King writes that Tony Dungy told him he'll rest his starters if the Colts clinch home-field advantage, playing for a healthy Super Bowl run rather than an undefeated season. I'm torn. On the one hand, I think it's the right move from a strategic standpoint. On the other hand, I'd love to see a team take a real run at 16-0. Of course, it's entirely possible that the Colts will lose tonight and suddenly become more concerned with falling behind Denver than with keeping up with the '72 Dolphins.
