This is another one of these games that we want to get in early on before the line moves all over the place and goes under a field goal. Indianapolis is coming back home after two straight games on the road, and it holds the AFC South lead. With the Texans struggling and likely to drop to 2-3 this week and perhaps 2-4 the next week and the Titans likely having to play without QB Jake Locker for at least the foreseeable future, there is a real chance to put some distance between itself and the rest of the pack in the division. This is a tough game though, and it is one that comes against what might be the best team in the NFL. Seattle figures to at least get some of its offensive linemen back after playing with three fresh faces last week against the Texans in what turned out to be a miracle of a win.
We definitely have our concerns with the Seahawks, though. Their running backs are averaging a full yard per carry less than they were last year, and QB Russell Wilson is spending a lot of time running around in and out of the pocket than he would like to. This defense proved to be mortal last week against the Texans, allowing over 300 yards to QB Matt Schaub, over 100 yards to RB Arian Foster and over 100 yards to WR Andre Johnson, and the truth of the matter is if not for a bonehead call by Head Coach Gary Kubiak that led to a pick six that tied the game, Houston likely wins that one 20-13 instead of losing 23-20. Remember last year when the trips to the East Coast finally got the best of the Seahawks? They weren’t able to do the job last year against the Falcons in their second trip to the East Coast in as many weeks, and this is a very similar spot against Indy. We want the points on our side, knowing that we have the push option if that’s what this one comes down to. Grab it now though, because we don’t believe that the Colts will be sitting on three all week long.
Seahawks @ Colts Pick: Indianapolis Colts +3
Seahawks @ Colts Score Prediction: Colts 21 – Seahawks 17
