I honestly don't think that's enough.

The Rams can run the ball and rush the passer but they won score much..with a 'temp' QB

I think the Colts cover this easily and I expect the spread to go up..

Actually expect the spread to go down they met not score a lot with a backup QB but they still owned a lot of Oline with their two pass rushers and fishers D is always good. This game is gonna be closer then people think a lot closer actually. And don't forget last night a new QB tore us up so anything can happen with this years colts

I actually think we score 2 out of our first 3 possessions and win handedly 34-17. That being said, I would pass on betting on this game.

Having watched their past two games, one thing I did notice about the Rams.

They have a very good pass rush.

Kellen Clemons is far from new to the NFL. Other than that this is spot on. The Rams are a good defense and a game managing offense. Its going to be a slugfest.

We will win easily. This is the perfect opponent for us at home to get our legs under us. It's a lot like the Buffalo game we won 20-13 last year after Thanksgiving.

 

This is also on my birthday. We will win, guaranteed.

You do realize these are the same Rams that cruised past the Texans and nearly knockes off Seattle, right? They will come at this swinging. The Rams want to play the tough grind it out style the Colts do.

STL's last couple games have exceeded my expectations for them.

 

Do I expect us to win?  Yes.

 

Do I expect us to cover?  Yes.

 

Do I think there will be an uncomfortable moment or two where I question the above?  Yes.

The Rams have played well all year. They held Seattle close and beat the texans quite handily.

VERY good. I think we can abuse their defensive schemes more-so than we did against Houston.

Each game is independent of it's own. We are good at Lucas Oil, and we will win the game. I watched that game closely against Tennessee. Locker was not sharp. I had money on the Titans so I was into every play. Rams have an underrated run game but I wouldn't expect Clemens to string together another decent performance. We will be fine

Easily = 23-13 or 24-16... more than 7.

You will be declaring a colts loss if the rams score a field goal on their opening drive

It will certainly be a match-up to watch. Quinn & Long vs Castonzo & Cherlius.

 

I expect a close game in the first half, and we pull away in the 2nd half.

I'm more worried about Long vs Cherilus. Long gave him a lot of problems when the rams played the lions last year.

The reason for their pass rush is their DEs, and our OTs are pretty good..

They don't have JJ Watt though. Our O-line has been okay (bend but not break) in other games.

Go back through the game day thread. You were in panic mode after the first td. I never once thought we didn't have a chance at coming back

They were in their last two games until the very end. Against two very good teams. I agree with you, some people are going to be surprised. But if they were paying attention, they wouldn't be.

Except for Jacksonville, we've played up or down to our competition. Except for them, have we covered the spot when favored?

Wasnt aware of this. I dont usually pay much attention to NFC North teams, so Im not overly familiar with what Cherilus did last year for Detroit.

Our oline is going to be abused and by extension Luck is going to be abused. I still anticipate that we win and I expect us to cover, but Luck is going to get beat up...

Brockers and Langford get a decent rush inside too. They may play Williams Hayes inside on passing downs as I saw he has 5 sacks.

Ten points is a lot for any team not named the Jags. The Rams do have a great pass rush but their limited offensively. I think will win 27- 13.

Where are all you "trap game " posters ? This , unlike others you were calling trap games is a perfect example of one.

 

Home team, playing an lessor team , big favorite..

 

Coming off a big win and is followed by a division game that would pretty much clinch the division. 

 

Plus , to top it off SL has some very good talent and shows up big some weeks.

Jeff Fisher will have something up his sleeve, remember the game they onside kicked it like three times in a row?  He'll have something we aren't expecting.  The Rams can run the ball and have a decent defense if they can get going they can give us fits and the Colts haven't started quick much this season.  I think the Colts win but it might not be the cake walk that most are expecting.

The Rams don't have the offense to attack us quickly..and while Stacy has been effective..

...I thought the Houston game was where we were vulnerable...

This is one we should win decisively...15-20 points..the Colts scure 30 or more here

Kellen isn't the new QB he was referring to.  He was referring to Case Keenum, who was the new QB we almost lost to.

Sunday we did.  If I recall, the spread was like 2 points.

    • I agree he in my opinion was a weak link as I watched Haeg play moving over & taking Reitz 's spot  I was impressed with the rookie . 
    • BOTH # 1 picks    Manning did not follow a legend Luck did & based on his first 3 seasons did better than the legend both had a major injury 2011 - 2015  both had bad d's & bad o-lines , 18 had Faulk then the Edge , 12 has had no one even close considering these things its a miracle Luck had 3 straight 11-5 seasons to start his career in 18's first 3 he had 1 season as good .   As with 18 the best is yet to come give him a top RB & things will be much better .   SO IMHO beauty is in the eyes of the beholder Luck does'nt have a Harrison or Wayne or a RB that is equal to what Manning had yet in a short time has proved he is more than capable ELITE will come as it did for Manning it just won't come over night or without the weapons 18 did not become 18 by his self & 12 will not cannot either , He is not whats holding him back the talent around him is . 
    • Heath Evans is a joke the Colts have started slow each season Andrew Luck has been our QB we've had line issues & defensive issues yet each season better than the last our worst season in the last decade was 2011 with out 18 or 12 under center the Colts have had little success however even when we had 5 different starting QB's the team went 8-8  ,     3 straight seasons in the playoffs followed by 2015 1 game out of the playoffs the expectations in Indy are sky high we had a legend at QB for a long time 12 is not Superman yet but pretty damn close he had big shoes to fill & for the most part has done very good & IMO he will get the Colts back in charge as the,    Top dogs in the AFC South but even then Evans will never have anything good to say his buddy Tommy boy is sitting at home a liar & a cheat you don't have slow starts when you'll do anything to win that is the Patriot Way , Evans wishs to Deflate the Colts & there fans he is a ignoramus .   So while the Colts get off to slow starts they finish strong , So IMO we are experiencing growing pains as a team with new Coaches & Players moved around like chess pieces on the O-line & in the secondary   every where you look trying to find the best fit it can get a little ugly  & Yes ,    Injuries are a part of the game all teams experience them & move on    Heath is a Patriot Homer thru & thru & never has any love for the Colts his comments are Skip Bayliss like absolutely worthless he is a troll in every aspect of the word .        
    • Even though the majority of the last draft was on the O-line to expect immediate results is unrealistic. No one should expect rookies to enter the NFL and play like seasoned veterans. Like has already been mentioned, patience.
    • I honestly think Griggs needs to draft with strategy as he did this last draft to really solidify the line. One pick wasn't going to make our line that much better.  Just my opinion
