In last week’s 45-44 playoff win the Indianapolis Colts defense was exposed as KC quarterback Alex Smith was able to torch Indianapolis for 378 passing yards and four touchdowns. That doesn’t come by accident. That comes by a good game plan by Andy Reid and in the NFL coaches will steal from one another when it comes to tactics learned on film on how to attack an offense or a defense. Allowing 44 points on your home field is a huge concern when your next opponent is New England on the road. You better believe Bill Belichick knows each and every weakness now defensively on the Colts side. New England will have to outscore Indianapolis because the Patriots defense has been hit hard by injuries. In two must wins to close out the regular season to earn a first round by the Patriots had two good offensive performances by tallying up 34 points at home to a division opponent in Buffalo and 41 points at Baltimore. New England has played over the total in their past four games at their home stadium. Last season the Patriots picked apart this Colts defense as they posted 59 points on New England. On the other side the Colts were able to have success offensively with 24 points scored on the Patriots defense. With two defenses not up to par look for a high scoring game.
