This Week’s Sunday Night Football Game Preview
Denver Broncos -6.5
Indianapolis Colts +6.5
We have seen every single Sunday Night Football game this year feature at least 29 points scored by the winner, and we can just about darn near guarantee that that is going to be what happens in this one once again in Week 7. The Denver Broncos are scoring points at a ridiculous clip this year, and they’ll take on the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Field.
Of course, the headline here is going to be about QB Peyton Manning coming back to Indy, the city that he essentially built from a football perspective. Manning now is leading the best offense he has arguably ever had, and that’s saying a lot, knowing that he had a season where he threw for the most touchdowns in NFL history at the time. However, what is really getting to us is the fact that this defense isn’t all that great. Some of it is the circumstance of always playing from ahead, and that means lots of soft zones and such, but we have seen this unit look horrid against QB Tony Romo and the Cowboys and now at times against QB Chad Henne and the Jaguars. One of those is excusable. The other isn’t. There are definitely flaws in this undefeated side.
Indy is far from perfect as well, and the argument could be made that this team was fortunate to beat both Seattle and Oakland at home this year. However, the Colts are the worthy AFC South leaders in our eyes, and we have to imagine that they are going to want to stretch out this lead even more. Indy is already a game up on the Titans and two up on the Texans, and both teams are big underdogs this week. QB Andrew Luck is taking over for the departed Manning, and he is going to try to be the next great Colts quarterback to lead this team for a decade. Luck is another one of these once-in-a-generation types of talent, and he’ll go far, but is he ready to really take down a man that has already carved out a Hall of Fame career?
Watching the NFL betting trends here is sickening. Do you care that Manning has five straight wins and covers in this series or the fact that the Colts have five straight wins and covers in this series? The truth of the matter is that Luck was still a frosh at Stanford the last time that these two teams played, and that really probably prompts you to throw out the record books.
