FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (Jan. 17, 2015) -- Colts fans are arriving in New England for Sunday's AFC Championship and the CBS 4 team is there to greet them.

"We're cruising across I-90," fan Dan Cole said.

Cole and his buddy Chris Kagiliery talked to CBS 4 from the car as they made the long drive to Gillette Stadium on Saturday. The two decided after last week's Denver win to make the road trip.

"Came home ... feeling pretty good and just started putting it together," Kagiliery said.

In New England to greet them was Tal Short, an Indianapolis native who moved to the Foxborough area years ago.

"(My) family still lives there ... so still a lot of Indianapolis in me," Short said.

Married to a Patriots fan, Short knows how lonely it is to be a Colts fan in New England. He and his wife even fight over whose colors their dog will wear each week.

"Sometimes she wins, sometimes I win. The poor dog has no idea what's going on," Short said.

Then there's Brownsburg High School's head football coach, Brett Comer, who is a fan truly caught in the middle.

"It's neat to see good things happen to good kids," Comer said.

Comer and his coaching staff made the trip to see their former student and current Patriots defensive tackle Chris Jones, who caught up with them the day before the game.

"Of course we watch him on TV as much as possible, but it's not like being in person and it's certainly not like being here," Comer said.

A Colts fan at heart, Comer said he'll be happy no matter who wins.

As for other Colts fans, they're hoping Luck and the team can pull off back-to-back impressive wins.

"What better story than beating Peyton in Denver and then coming up here and possibly beating Brady?" Short said.

"Hopefully a trip to Arizona in a few weeks is in our future," Kagiliery said.
