THE HOT TICKET: Colts (8-0) at Bengals (7-2), 4:15 p.m., Ch. 10
THE SCOOP: The Colts are the 11th team since the merger in 1970 to reach 9-0. The last team to accomplish the feat, the 2003 Chiefs, had its win streak halted by ... the Bengals. Two years ago, it was quite an upset. Today's game is a battle between AFC playoff contenders. The key components of each team's offense rank among the league's top 10: Indy QB Peyton Manning, RB Edgerrin James and WR Marvin Harrison; Cincy QB Carson Palmer, RB Rudi Johnson and WR Chad Johnson. Defensively, the Colts rank No. 4 overall, but the Bengals lead in interceptions (20) and total takeaways (29) for a league-best turnover margin of plus-20.
KORTH'S PICK: Colts 24, Bengals 21
Bucs (6-4) at Falcons (6-3), 1 p.m., Ch. 13
THE SCOOP: Coming on college rivalry weekend, this NFC South contest has all the requisite emotion. The marquee matchup is between the Michael Vick-led Falcons offense and the Derrick Brooks-led Bucs defense. Vick rarely has a big day against Tampa Bay, but Atlanta has won two of his past three starts. Bucs quarterback Chris Simms got his first win at home but winning in the noisy Georgia Dome is another matter.
KORTH'S PICK: Falcons 20, Bucs 14
