Colts Lions Predictions


Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the Colts run game to get going and how many times JT gets the ball in this game. The Lions give up an average of 117.4 yards per game. Rivers has another solid game where he throws for 3 touchdowns and JT gets a rushing score. Defense won't start off as slow as it did in the Bengals game. 

 

 

 

28-16 Colts.

Colts 27

Lions 21

 

I see this as a must win game as well even though we are currently 4-2. After this game, we will be heading into a brutal 9 game stretch, and it will difficult to win most of them. A win Vs the Lions will make it so a 4-5 or 5-4 record the rest of the way can get us into the playoffs, and I think that's doable.

 

We should get Pittman and Leonard back as well, so I can see a win Vs the Lions.

I wouldn't say this is a must win

I definitely do. Lets say we lose hypothetically. We're 4-3. We have a 9 game stretch Vs the Titans twice, the Texans twice, the Jags, the Ravens, the Steelers, the Packers, and the Raiders. Besides the Jags, there are no easy games, and we lost to the Jags in week 1. I can see 4-5 wins in there if we play our best, but not 5-6 if we lose to the Lions.

 

To me, this is a must win and the difference between sneaking into the playoffs as a wildcard and missing it. I don't see us winning the division because of the Titans, so we'll need to make it as a wildcard and win games in the playoffs that way.

I think we'll win for sure.  Rivers has been playing really good ball indoors this season.

Much better than his outdoors performances for some reason.

i have a bad feeling about this game , the lions are no joke .  stafford is elite and can easily pick apart defenses.  the lions will be 3-3 going into the colts game they could be a playoff team they blew out jags who beat us .  they score points and they have  a tough defense .   the lions had a tough schedule facing the packers bears saints cardinals .  the lions only lost to playoff teams .  with a easy schedule they could be 5-1 right now they are no joke .

I thought the Jets would beat us, until I learned the Jets are basically losing on purpose (they got shutout to the Dolphins, come on), so this will be the trap game where we lose. Sorry Jets fans, I didn't know you guys wanted that draft pick so bad.

If you look at that Jets team, they really don't have much. If Darnold isn't the guy, then they might as well Tank for Trevor. I'm hoping they do so if Ballard has interest in Darnold, he'll be available for trade.

 

If you are a well-coached team, I don't believe in trap games. Reich has to install in the team that no game is easy and every game should be taken seriously. If he doesn't, then it could be considered a "trap game". Most games like that that the better team loses are just due to bad matchups though or key injuries at certain positions. With Leonard and Pittman back, I think we'll win this one. It's what happens after the Lions that will be brutal potentially.

they are not ranked good in either , but stats can be misleading .  Look at the offenses they faced , the colts were rank number 1 defense in every stat by far .  Stats can be misleading at times , they lions seem like the blitz a lot watching them play the jags.

I don't like the pessimism here, our current in-division record isnt great, but if we beat the titans in our head-to-heads, we control our own destiny for the division.

The Titan's schedule is just as rough as ours. They play:

Bengals (W)
Bears (toss up)
Colts (toss up)
Ravens (probably a L)
Colts (toss up)
Browns (toss up)
Jags (W)
Lions (not a gimme. but probably a W)
Packers (toss up)
Texans (toss up)

As far as I am concerned, they are only really heavily favored to win 3 of those games and the rest are toss ups.

We can still win this division if we handle our own business.

To be fair, when I posted this, the Titans were still undefeated. The Steelers really helped us out. So we'll see what happens from now on. The Colts are in better shape now than 24 hours ago. Only 1 game behind.

This will be a close game in my opinion.   Detroit has been pretty good this season.   Stafford may pick the defense apart if we play the soft zone.    

 

I'll say 27-26 Colts win.

Brutal nine game stretch? Vs the 1-6 Texans (x2), the 1-6 Jaguars, vs the 3-3 Raiders, vs the 3-3 Lions? Vs the paper tiger Titans (x2).

 

The Packers and Steelers could be tough, but not unwinable.

 

I think our definition of ‘brutal’ could be very different...

 

It’s a shame we don’t having a purring offence though.

I disagree, I think the schedule get pretty brutal going forward.  The next five games are against teams 23-7 combined record.  Lions, Ravens, Titans, Packers, Titans.   That's a tough part of the schedule.    We'll be lucky to come out of those 5 games 2-3.   That would leave us at 6-5 into the final 5 games which I see us going 3-2 which would leave us at 9-7.    Hopefully we can win 3 of the next five though.

I've noticed most people on here have the Colts winning with a close score kind of like yours.   I went 27-26 Colts win.   This tells me that people think it is a 50/50 game.   I wonder what the Vegas odds will be?

I fear you may be right.

 

We start off like the Browns and Bengals games playing zone, go down 10-0, and then come back to tie it by half time 13-13. Play more man the rest of the way and win it along the lines of the above score. I will just add 1 score to it, 27-20. :)

I wasn’t hand picking the games, I was covering all 9 games. Tough yes, but not brutal...

Lucky to beat the Titans 1 out of 2 and the Lions, to get 2 out of 5 wins? Really?

I could very possibly see us going 3-2 or even 4-1 in that stretch IF things rolled the right way... Ravens and Packers will definitely be tough games, but they arent un-winable. To say we would be lucky to beat the Lions and Titans once is a bit of a stretch.

We arent SB favorites or anything, but the Colts arent a bad team either. Those teams wont be going into games vs the Colts penciling in a W either....

Going to wait to see who is back before I predict. I do think we'll win, but Detroit's Stafford and Golladay do concern me a bit.

 

We're all alone in the 7th spot for the playoff race, and a win keeps thus there or better.

I agree, but we could also go 1-4.    Lions will be the only team we are favored against and I'm not certain about that as I haven't seen a line for next weeks game.   I'd be thrilled if we went 4-1 or 3-2 in the next 5 games.

I think that is the most anyone has predicted the Colts to win by.     Any specific reason why you feel the Colts can go on the road and dominate?  Just curious.

    • Buckner is a freaking monster. Would not have wanted to be that tiny WR trying to get that ball back from Buckner. He’s playing with a chip and I like it No. And he’s wasnt gonna be worth much to trade either. Plus you can’t trade a player on IR. Oh and the trade deadline has passed.
    • I don’t think they want to change the entire offense to suit Taylor this year. It’s not as simple as people think.    
    • Which if he’d had any balls, he’d refused. 
    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
