Score Prediction: Colts Yell ”Let’s Ride!” Into Blissful Victory Over Broncos

Matt Ryan and the Colts will take on Russell Wilson and the Broncos. These two teams are still waiting to hit their stride. Who will find it Thursday night?

The Colts are traveling to the Mile High city to take on Russell Wilson and the Broncos for a Thursday Night showdown. James Plampin, Managing Editor of Mile High Manifest, joins fellow Stadium Rant staffers and the Indy Intercept crew to predict the final score. Shamless pun, let’s ride.

James Plampin: Broncos 24, Colts 20

In my preseason prediction for the Broncos, I had Denver winning this game 28-21. Now that we are a couple weeks into the season, I have a few thoughts about Indy coming to the Mile High city. The Broncos gave up 200 plus rushing yards in their loss to the Raiders. Jonathan Taylor will absolutely eat up this Broncos rushing defense. Ultimately, I don’t think it will be enough for the Colts. Indianapolis did Denver a favor by beating the Chiefs Week Three, and they will do Denver another favor by losing this game. I have the Broncos winning a close one: 24-20.

J.T. Howland: Colts 27, Broncos 24

With “J.T.” expected to play, he ends up becoming a factor. Melvin Gordon has a solid day on the ground. Russell throws two touchdown passes, but the Colts get a much needed victory after their 1-2-1 start while the Broncos fall to 2-3.

Kevin Brzostek: Colts 21, Broncos 20

The Colts and Broncos have both underperformed through the first quarter of the season. The Broncos have the better team on paper, but haven’t shown enough this year. Indianapolis should get their running game going with Jonathan Taylor and use a late Matt Ryan touchdown to steal a road victory.

Aaron VanDeventer: Broncos, 27, Colts 10

Broncos have an all around solid game and hold “J.T.” under 70 yards. Patrick Surtain II holds Pittman under 50 yards. Broncos win.

Chris Lewis: Colts 27, Broncos 20

Call me optimistic, but I have the team winning 27-20. Pass protection was better for Matt Ryan in Week Four and the offensive line will continue to build on that. Alec Pierce gets his first receiving touchdown. The defense has been able to generate pressure the past two weeks, and I believe the trend continues against the Broncos. The Broncos are giving up an average of three sacks per game.

With the loss of Javonte Williams, the ball will be in Wilson’s hands and will allow for the team’s defensive line to get after him early and often, forcing Wilson off his spots, three sacks including a strip sack. The ball will finally start to bounce the team’s way.

Chip Bennett: Colts 19, Broncos 12

I’ll say the Colts win a low-scoring affair, 19 – 12. The Colts eke out an ugly win. Alec Pierce scores the touchdown. The Broncos pick up lots of yards in the air, but the Colts defense keeps them out of the end zone. Multiple turnovers by both teams cancel out.

Boom McGinty: Broncos 22, Colts 17

Colts come out firing at nothing. Another slow and stagnant start to the game. Russell completes over 70 percent of his passes. The defense forces two takeaways, but the offense can’t muster up any consistency. The season is looking very much ”down the drain”.

Kev Massing: Colts 17, Broncos 14

This Thursday night showdown will be a low scoring affair. With Javonte Williams out for the season, expect Melvin Gordon to assert himself as Denver’s lead back. Jonathan Taylor may be out this week, but reports suggest that he could play. Whether it’s Taylor or Nyheim Hines, the team will use the run game to gain some momentum on offense and grind out a victory.

Justin Perkins

Although the team lost Sunday, a win Thursday seems obtainable. Both team’s starting running backs are banged up or have injuries keeping them out for the season. Furthermore, despite both teams having former MVP’s at quarterback, this game will come down to which defense plays better. With the Colts having the better overall defense, I see the Colts winning 20-17. (This will finally be win number two of the year and win number one on the road.)

Meghan Hall: Broncos 28, Colts 14

I honestly struggled to even predict this score because the Broncos are practically in the same boat with the Colts in terms of offensive woes, but being -6 in the turnover differential, largely due to the fumbles and overall ineptitude of the offense, gives me pause. Unfortunately, until the team show me they can protect the football (and Matt Ryan), I have this offense stalling at 14 points and giving away more than they produce.

I always promise to keep things real and honest about the Colts. Right now, they are not playing consistently good football. We’ve seen flashes that show the tools are there, but the execution is downright abysmal more times than not. In my best KeKe Palmer voice, ”I hate to say it. I hope I don’t sound ridiculous. I don’t know who this [team] is. I mean, [they] could be walking down the street… I wouldn’t know a thing. Sorry to this [team].
