The Colts play against a Raiders team that is desperate to get their season back on track and is hungry for a win. These three players are going to have something to say about that.
It’s unclear how many starters the Colts will be down on Sunday when they face the Raiders in Indianapolis. Several of them didn’t practice yesterday, and surely a lot of them won’t practice today either. But there are still some key guys who can give the Colts some juice.
There are three players in particular that are keys to victory in this specific game. A lot of it is due to the matchup that they have on the other side of them. They also have to take some of the load since other starters on their unit will be almost surely out of this game.
All three of them are key for this team all season long. The Colts need these guys to play at their full capacity if they want to get where they still think they can go. This team still has Super Bowl aspirations. The roster is good enough for that to become a reality.
Two of these players are newcomers to this year’s team. One of them has been with them for a few years now and is just starting to hit his prime. Can you guess who they are yet? No need to guess anymore. Let’s talk about that player who has been here and playing well this season.
