Regardless of what happens from here on out for the playoff-bound Indianapolis Colts, the 2012 season will be remembered for years to come.
After all, this was the year that Peyton Manning moved on and Andrew Luck came on board to lead Indianapolis to a Wild Card berth. That would have been a big enough story on its own, but when you pair it with head coach Chuck Pagano’s successful battle with cancer, and the success the Colts enjoyed under interim head coach Bruce Arians, it becomes the stuff of Hollywood.
Pagano will be back on the sideline Sunday for the first time since early in the season, as the Colts look to build momentum against their division rivals from Houston – who could miss out on a first-round bye and home-field advantage if they lose on Sunday.
Ahead of the game, our Scott Graham had a chance to speak with the Colts’ head coach about being back on the field, his successful fight against cancer, his team’s record in his absence and much more.
(Listen to Chuck Pagano’s interview Scott Graham from 12/29/12)
Indianapolis is locked into the #5 seed in the AFC, but they can knock their AFC South rivals from Houston down as far as the #3 seed if they win on Sunday. Tom McCarthy and Tony Boselli will have complete coverage from Lucas Oil Stadium beginning Sunday at 12:30 PM Eastern.
