Even though the Colts have to face the big bad Patriots on Thursday night, they shouldn’t have to deal with bad weather conditions.
Thursday night could be a rough one for the Colts. They play against the defending AFC champions and haven’t been playing well either. They are banged up and will probably have several players out. But they won’t have to worry about the weather.
As of right now it should be a nice fall night. It looks like the it’ll be in the 60s and clear for the game. That is perfect football weather and neither team should have any issues. Both teams should be able air the ball out all night.
The Colts would have been better off if the weather was bad. It would have perhaps slowed down Tom Brady and the passing game. But the Colts will have to rely on an improved defense. That will be the key to the game.
Both teams need to keep a focus though. If the Patriots aren’t careful, they could be primed to get upset. The Colts should come in motivated after the Josh McDaniels fiasco. This might be the most motivated they will be all year long to win. But they might not have the talent.
With all of the injuries, it will be interesting to see how competitive this team is. It could be ugly, or they could surprise everyone and come out victorious. One thing we do know is that the weather will not be a deciding factor.
