The Colts take on the Cowboys on Sunday. This will be their second game in a row taking on a hot team. Can they get it done again this time?
Both the Colts and the Cowboys have been playing good football lately. The Colts have won 6 of their last 7, while the Cowboys have won their last 5. They clash on Sunday in Indianapolis in a game that both teams need to win desperately.
For Dallas, they are trying to keep their lead in the NFC East. The rest of their division has played terribly recently, so they are trying to make sure no one can come back and take their crown from them. They want to make sure they win the division.
For Indy, they need to win to stay in the hunt for the second wild-card spot. They are tied with Baltimore for that spot, but are behind because of a tiebreaker scenario. They need to keep winning to give themselves the best shot possible to jump over them.
This should be a tough game for both teams. Both have a lot to play for and are going to play their hardest to make sure they win. The game will be won in the trenches. Dallas will try to run Ezekiel Elliott as much as possible, and the Colts defensive line has to be ready for that.
But Dallas will have a hard time stopping Andrew Luck. He has been playing great over the last 2 months or so. But both defenses will have big challenges to overcome. Whichever defense successfully does that will win the game.
The season is winding down and the Colts don’t have very many chances left. They can’t afford to slip up and lose this game if they want to be in the playoffs.
