This should be a good football game as both teams are 2-2 heading into this week. The Ravens will no doubt come out running in this football game with LeRon McClain (266 yards rushing) and Willis McGahee (170 yards rushing) against a Colts’ defense that is allowing 188.5 yards rushing per game and 4.9 yards per carry. The Ravens want to protect Joe Flacco who sometimes makes bad decisions with the football as he has thrown 4 interceptions already this season.
The Colts will likely come out throwing the ball against the Ravens to try to get a quick lead on them and take them out of their gameplan. The Colts’ O-Line must give Peyton Manning enough time to locate his receivers who should have some edges against the Ravens’ secondary due to injuries. Look for Manning to spread the ball around to Reggie Wayne, Anthony Gonzalez, Marvin Harrison and Dallas Clark. Still, Manning will have to be careful as the Ravens already have 7 interceptions and 9 sacks this season. Don’t look for Joseph Addai to have much success running on the Ravens who are allowing only 64.0 yards rushing per game and 2.8 yards per carry this season.
PREDICTION: BALTIMORE RAVENS 21, INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 20
