Halfway through the regular season, the Indianapolis Colts sport a disappointing record of three wins and five losses. Along the way, they have proven to be a slow-starting team, and one that is seldom able to come back from an early-game deficit.
In their five losses, the Colts have trailed by seven or more point at the half four out of five times. The only second-half comeback of sorts the Colts have managed was to go from a 13-13 halftime tie against the Chargers to a 26-22 win. They have yet to score more than 13 points in any first half this year.
Numerous other aspects of the two teams’ seasons to date also bode well for the Green Bay Packers.
Based on the Colts’ previous games, if the Packers come out on fire at Lambeau Field this weekend, they should be able to establish a lead that the Colts are unlikely to overcome. By all means, the Packers should elect to receive the ball if they win the pre-game coin toss.
The fact that the Packers scored 32 points on the Falcons is a positive sign. But it does not mean the offense is on the mend. It means they played a really weak defense and didn’t self destruct. The Colts defense is every bit as bad as the Falcons, maybe worse. Hell, just about everyone scores 30 points on the Falcons and the Colts. Matter of fact the Lions scored 39 pts, even the Jaqs scored 30 against the Colts. Yes, the Jags. This is why the Packers should win this game.
It’s true that the Colts are limping. But i think it’s safe to say the Packers are also limping, probably even worse. The reason the Packers should win this game is simply because the Colts are a horrible team that is crumbling down around Andrew Luck.
There really isn’t a reason why the Packers shouldn’t score 30+ against the Colts at Lambeau. Except for Cleveland, it doesn’t get any easier to score points against the Falcons or the Colts.
