Today, we’ll take a look at the players’ approach to the loud, intense playoff environment in Baltimore and whether the angry mob in Mobtown will affect the play on the field.

Veterans Preparing the Young Guns for Baltimore
Six years have passed since the Colts Super Bowl run that saw them win a brutal defensive struggle in the Charm City on their way to the championship. The Colts currently have 32 players on their active roster with two years of experience or less, including 11 rookies. It is safe to say that most of the roster has never seen anything like the environment they will be playing in on Sunday.
