Why the Colts will beat the Patriots next Sunday ...

The Pats opponents so far do not having a winning record.

  • Jets (1-7)
  • San Diego (4-3)
  • Buffalo (3-4)
  • Cincy (2-5)
  • Cleveland (4-3)
  • Dallas (6-1)
  • Miami (0-8)
  • Washington (4-3). Combined Win-Loss 24-34.
Ours do:
  • NO (3-4)
  • Ten (5-2)
  • Houston (3-5)
  • Denver (3-3)
  • TB (4-4),
  • Jax (5-2)
  • Carolina (4-3). Combined Win-Loss 27-23
Even discounting Miami, the Pats opponents combined have lost 2 more games than they've won.

The defenses the Patriots have faced have just been weak. Here's how they rank according to ESPN:

The Jets #28, SD #16, BUF #31, Cincy #29, Cleveland #32, Dallas #7, Miami #27, Washington #5. That means NE has played 5 of the 6 worst defenses in the NFL over their 8 game stretch.

In comparison, the worst opponent we've faced, NO ranks in at #22.

We also play in THE toughest division in the NFL, while the AFC East is duking it out for last with the NFC West. NFC West people - SF, St. Louis, Arizona and Seattle.  

Lastly, I believe the Patriots are on autopilot. I think they're getting "comfortable", making assumptions about how easy they think football is. Everyone said the Panthers' would be a trap game for us ... I think we've laid a pretty nice trap for the Patriots ourselves.

Just my .02, but right here, right now, I predict a Week 9 victory. Colts 35, Patriots 31.
