Yesterday, we went over the hardest game on the Colts’ upcoming schedule. Now we see what will be the easiest one.
If you take a look at the Colts’ schedule for this season, there are a lot more hard games than there are easy ones. They don’t have too many cupcake games like they did early last year. But in every schedule, there are easy games that the team should win.
There aren’t that many to choose from though. Some people might look at the home game against Jacksonville in mid-November. But the Colts traditionally struggle with them, and they have a new quarterback who can actually throw the ball in Nick Foles.
Another game that looks easy on paper is home against Oakland. But again, they have some new additions to their team, most notably Antonio Brown. It could be tougher than what people realize. Even so, Indy should still win that game.
Home against Denver is another candidate. They now have Joe Flacco as their quarterback, but he doesn’t inspire much fear in people. But their defense is still tough. Andrew Luck will still have to have a good game against the defense to win the game.
The easiest game is home against the Falcons in week 3. That team has taken steps back since their Super Bowl collapse a few years ago. Their defense has struggled and their offense isn’t as potent as it used to be for whatever reason. The Colts should win this game easily.
With that being said, no games in the NFL are easy. Every team plays their hardest, and the Colts will get everyone’s best shot. They still have to play well to win.
