Last season the Colts met the New York Jets and they defeated them. Since than they are far different football teams. A lot has changed in the last year. Colts are sitting their players not going for the undefeated streak. Now they are battling in the final week to win their division. Most of it is due to injuries. Jets are a different team as well. No Thomas Jones and their running game isn't looking to good. LT started out well, but he isn't the same. Been well documented that the Colts defense isn't exactly great vs the run. Showed vs Arian Foster. LOL! Jets passing game in my opinion isn't that much improved they still struggle. Win close games o which is a plus I suppose.
I give Colts the edge because of the playoff experience. Garcon will be a factor in this football game. He will have to step up like he did last season when Reggie Wayne was contained by Revis. Colts actually have a running game. At least in the last 3 games. They struggled to defeat the Titans which is a negative way to end their season. Still in the playoffs which is a plus. The Colts are at Indy which is a huge plus. Home field will really be an advantage in this football game.
The Jets coming into the season with all the talk. Media favorites in the preseason. Not exactly now. I wouldn't even say the Jets are better than they were last season by much cuz of the running game struggles. Not much improved in the passing game. Sanchez still struggles and defense just saves the day which is what some folks are expecting. The matchup will indeed be between the pass defense of the Jets and the Colts passing offense led by Peyton Manning. He isn't one of the best of the games for nothing. It is time to put or shut up for the Jets. If they win this football game I will be surprised somewhat. This will be a statement game for them.
Colts are the favorites going in obviously. They are my pick as well. If Jets wanna win this football game they have got to run the football effectively on the ground. You don't want to rely on Sanchez to save the day. Defensive side is obvious stop Peyton Manning. If they run the ball effectively they will control the clock which is one of the ways the Jags won their football game earlier this season. If colts could get the run going on offense that would be great for Manning, but if they don't Garcon will have to step up which will be one of the key players in this football game. Colts defense will have to control the run and force Sanchez to throw the football. I'm certain that both teams quarterbacks will throw at least one INT. This will be closer than one would think, but I'm giving the nod to the Colts. Prove me wrong Jets. Put up or shut up time. Surprised??Don’t be...........STAY JEALOUS!!
