INDIANAPOLIS COLTS @ NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS PREDICTION & PREVIEW
Indianapolis Colts (12 – 5) @ New England Patriots (12 – 4)
Saturday January 11, 5:15 PM PST
Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA
The Indianapolis Colts visit the New England Patriots in the first game of
the AFC Divisional Playoff Round. The Patriots are a 7.5 point home
favorite. The total is set at 53.5.
The Colts come into New England riding a high of all highs as they erased a
28 point second half deficit to the Chiefs. Some might recall when the
Bills rallied from 32 down against the Oilers to win, however it took the
Bills OT to win that one. Some might actually say this Colts comeback is
more impressive, I disagree.
The Colts winners of 5 straight will have their hands full against the
Patriots, especially on the road in less than ideal weather conditions.
Luck lit up the Chiefs throwing for four TD’s on 436 passing, he also added
45 rushing yards. T.Y. Hilton had 224 receiving and 2 TD’s. The Colts
ground game was ineffective has they had to pass the entire second half as
they were chasing the Chiefs. Undoubtedly, All Pro Aqib Talib will be
covering T.Y. which should neutralize the Colts only offensive playmaker.
New England likes to spread the ball around taking the 5 – 7 yard
underneath plays, eat clock and move the chains. Nothing fancy about the
Patriots offense, playing keep away to sustain long drives. Tom Brady who
was sacked 40 times on the year would rather go down then throw a pick.
New England will get theirs as they were second in the AFC in scoring at 28
points per game.
Give Bill Belichick and Tom Brady time to prepare and given how the
Patriots needed some rest we have to go with the home team in this one.
Talib shuts down Hilton as the Luck runs out in New England as the Patriots
tack on a late score to cover the number.
PREDICTION: Patriots 34, Indianapolis Colts 24
Play New England -7.5
