The Indianapolis Colts will be on a short week after the team lost 19-9 on Monday Night Football to the San Diego Chargers. Expect Peyton Manning to come in focused as he brings the undefeated Broncos into Indianapolis. There is a lot being made out of the Colts wins against the 49ers and Seahawks but those teams do not have explosive passing attacks and the weapons in the passing game Denver has. Another element that makes this Broncos team very lethal is the face Peyton Manning finally has a quality run game behind him as Knowshon Moreno is rushing for 4.7 yards a carry. The Colts over the past several years have been very weak in run defense. We saw the Chargers who are a bad running team have success pounding the rock on the Colts. In 2012 that weakness was glaring when a bad New York Jets team pounded Indianapolis last year but stubborn offensive coordinators have decided against going after that weakness until we saw San Diego last week undress the Colts on national television. The combination of Manning and his run game should allow the Broncos the ability to pile up enough points to cover this number. Toss out last weeks performance by the Broncos against Jacksonville because the team really wasn’t going to get up for a bad Jaguars team. Denver is 6-0 on the season with five victories coming by 16 points or greater. In their big games the Broncos offense put up 51 at Dallas, 52 at home to Philadelphia, 41 at the Giants and 49 in week one against the Baltimore Ravens. Denver gets up big time for the big games.
With our NFL pro football pick for Sunday Night Football we will play on the Denver Broncos -7 points at the online sports books.
