The Indianapolis Colts are traveling to LP Field this Sunday for a gridiron matchup that will be televised on NBC Sunday Night Football. The 4-0 Colts will probably be walking into this one thinking they have it in the bag with their star quarterback Peyton Manning. The Titans should come out with a chip on their shoulder with a 0-4 record looking to prove that they are not a team that will be going 0-16 this year.
The Titan's offense really has not been having too much trouble this year with 358.5 yards per game making up an average of almost 20 points per game. That isn't too shabby. Kerry Collins is having a little bit of trouble getting those passes on target, but our run game is pretty good. With Smash and Dash in the backfield it is hard to stop the run when your not ready for it, but with an old QB who is struggling and no huge, big-name receivers, the defense can focus on stopping CJ. The Colts D has had a little trouble this year with the run letting in over 100 yards per game and overall 100 more rush yards than passing yards on the season. I want to see us get 2 or more rushing TD's.
This is where Tennessee is really struggling this year letting in 282 passing yards a game, which is way too much compared to the 80 rushing yards a game. This will be a tough matchup for our secodnary who has been struggling this year and has not even faced Peyton Manning throwing to Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark. Let's hope we can maybe get one pick against Manning.
Overall, it is our offensive specialty going against their defensive weak point and their offensive specialty going up against our defensive weak point. Let's not even talk about special teams. I think this Sunday we could have a high-scoring game. I'm thinking it will be 31-24, Colts win. Discuss pregame below . . .
