The Colts are big favorites to beat the Giants on Sunday. That should hold true as the game is played out in Lucas Oil Stadium.
There have been a few games this year in which the Colts have not maintained their focus. They were beaten by inferior opponents. They weren’t able to make adjustments and play good enough football to win. Don’t expect that to be the case on Sunday.
The Giants are a horrible football team. They have quarterback and offensive line issues. Neither are good when you are facing a team that didn’t allow a single point last week. The Colts defense should be able to feast on Eli Manning and the passing game.
Saquon Barkley will likely get some yards though. He has been the lone bright spot in this Giants offense this season. He is a tough runner and a very capable pass catcher. Expect him to be a very large part of New York’s offensive game plan.
But it shouldn’t matter. The Giants defense has no answer for Andrew Luck and the rest of the Colts offense. Marlon Mack could have another big running game as well. They just have too many weapons on offense for this ill-equipped defense to take on and have success against.
Game prediction: Colts 30 Giants 10
The spread for this game is still in single digits, but I don’t expect the Colts to have any issues covering that. They play this game at home to add on to everything else they have going for them. The Giants will struggle, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them quit in the second half.
A Colts win would keep them in the hunt for a playoff birth. This is the time of year where you need to show the rest of the league that you are a serious contender.
