The national experts were much more split in their predictions than I figured they would be, but the media hype-meter undoubtedly points to the Patriots. The Colts are underdogs in a building where they’ve won 14 consecutive games. The Colts almost never play the respect card, but today they come in with a chip on their shoulder.
I liked what I saw from the Cleveland and Dallas rushing offenses earlier in the season. Today is not a day where you worry about preserving Addai. You hand it to him 25 times and throw it to him 12 times. The Colts are going to come out swinging and grab a sizable lead. It’s a much tougher game without the injured players, but I still have a good feeling about this game. I think Indy hangs on for a 34-28 win.
