Your prediction, Indy @ Detroit
 
I don't know about you, but I am curious about the Colts. How good are they?

We played the Lions last week, in Detroit. They play the Lions today, in Detroit. Should be a straight forward apples to apples comparison without these two teams actually playing each other.

So...... what do you think? I thought the absence of Titus Young was going to be a big deal for them. But then Broyles showed he was ready to be the #2 guy in Detroit.... or was our secondary that bad?

Suh & Fairley looked unblockable..... not many sack numbers, but they were in our backfield almost as often as James Casey.

Stafford.... I respect him now. That side-arm is an interesting addition to his game & he used it effectively against our pass rush.

We're going to find out a little more about them Indianapolis Colts.

I think the Colts are overachievers and the Lions are the exact opposite.

If they both bring their game, the Lions should win just as Vegas giving a 7-point spread as the favorite.

Problem is at this point, the Colts still have a lot to fight for; not so much for the Lions.

Detroit should win the game at home, but the Colts seem to have an ability to stay within striking distance. I hope they can get the win.

I believe this is why you were accused of being a thinly disquised Colts fan in another thread.

The Colts are playing the Lions today - not an AFC team.

The Colts are an AFC team. An AFC team in our division.

We want them to lose. It would be nice for us, if that last game of the season is meaningless. Even to the extent that the Colts can't get into the play-offs with a win.

If they were playing NE or Baltimore, I'd rather they win. But beating the Lions don't help us in anyway.

We are in the playoffs and I'd like the Colts to be one of the Wild Card teams. Too bad if the last game of the season isn't meaningless. The Texans can take care of their own business. They don't need any help from the Colts.

You want the Colts to be a Wild-Card?

Really?

Some team has to be a Wild Card. Why not the Colts? Who would you prefer of the teams that are in the hunt?

Also if the Colts are in the running, it will make the December 16 home game for us more interesting.

But, it looks like they will be on the losing end today.

Not that I'm scared of the Colts. But I think Karma is a well, you know.

If we sleep on the Colts week 18 & let them into the play-offs, then have to face them. The Karma.... juju.... is bad for us.

Chances are we're going to play that final game like a preseason game. Then we'll have to have our second & third string guys beat the Colts.

I'd rather they get their snaps & not worry about injuries.

& I don't like bad juju.

& I'd rather see the Bengals get that spot.

Lions are on the verge of giving it away with a prevent defense.

Cool to watch Luck outrun Suh after Suh spent so much time in our backfield last week.

Yeah. Did you see that "tackle" by #92 I think it was? Dude didn't even THINK about using his arms.

Luck is really something.

Yeah, when he scrambled, at least I took the satisfaction of watching him burn Suh.

What a shock. The Lions choked on the last play of the game.

The kid is good. I remember watching him down here at Stratford. Looks like some great games in the future for the Colts and Texans. So much for them going into rebuilding mode.
