The Colts play against a Dolphins team who only has one win so far this season. Will the Colts bounce back from a tough loss a week ago?
The Colts lost a really tough game last week in Pittsburgh. Adam Vinatieri once again cost them a game. But now they come home to play one of the worst teams in the league. It will be the first time this season that Miami is playing a game a week after winning.
Because of that, Miami will probably be playing as hard as they have all season long. Expect them to be playing with confidence they haven’t had this year. But the Colts will be playing hard too because they want to back up their loss with a win to get back on track.
Right now, it looks like Jacoby Brissett will be a game-time decision. It doesn’t seem like it would be wise to play him this week though. Brian Hoyer should be good enough to beat this team, even as a backup. But if Brissett does play, it increases the Colts’ chances of winning.
Game prediction: Colts 21 Miami 14
Every game the Colts have played has been a one score game. Until that changes, I’m going to react accordingly. Even though Miami has a really bad offense and not a great defense, they will still probably keep it close. In the end, Marlon Mack is too much and he scores a touchdown.
If the Colts lose this game, there will be some serious issues that need to be fixed. But don’t expect that to happen on Sunday.
