AP: Pagano Winning His Battle

We can't forget that, even though the Colts are winning, the most important struggle this season's still about Coach Pagano and his fight against leukemia. According to the Associated Press, Pagano's about to go into his second round of treatments, hopefully as successful as the first.

"I've got circumstances. You guys understand it, I understand it. It's already beat. It's already beat," Pagano said during Sunday's postgame speech, hesitating to catch his breath a couple of times. "My vision that I'm living is to see two more daughters get married, dance at their weddings and then lift the Lombardi Trophy several times. I'm dancing at two more weddings and we're hoisting that trophy together, men. Congratulations, I love all of you."

No team could be more inspired than Indianapolis right now. Their winning helps keep Pagano's spirits up; that's more important than a playoff spot right now.
