Road To The Playoffs: Colts VS Raiders

The Jaguars have been on a downward spiral lately and CJ Stroud has been in concussion protocol. However, this has allowed the Colts to make it to the playoffs and possibly even win the division. At present, the AFC South is tied up at 8 and 7. For the Colts to have any chance, they must win their next two games, and their journey begins with Las Vegas.

Key Impact Players

Michael Pittman Jr. is expected to return from concussion protocol this week as he was a full participant in practice on Thursday. His absence last week was felt in the disappointing loss to the Falcons.

Our offensive line has been struggling lately, but we are hopeful that starting tackle Braden Smith will be able to improve the situation and create openings for Jonathon Taylor. Unfortunately, Zach Moss is out this week due to an arm injury.


Las Vegas Raiders

The Raiders have won two impressive games against the Chiefs and Chargers, however, in the week before they lost 0-3 to the Vikings. Interestingly, the Raiders are one of the most bet-on underdogs this week, just like we were last week.

This news is great for the Colts, as I believe we will have a major bounce-back week this Sunday. We are confident with Pittman and Braden Smith coming back. Although we haven't played our best game yet, this week could very well be the one.


Conclusion/Prediction

The roof will be closed this weekend, which means that both teams can throw without worrying about the wind. Since the winds are expected to be around 12 mph with the roof being closed, there should be no issues to worry about. I think it's likely that we'll see late money hitting the over, and my prediction is that the Colts will win by 2 or 3 points with a clutch field goal from Matt Gay. So my final score prediction is 24-22 in favor of the Colts.
