Week Fourteen: Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens- Open Thread

Indianapolis Colts (10-2) at Baltimore Ravens (4-8)
Week Fourteen: Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens

Location: M&T Bank Stadium  Baltimore, MD

Kick-off time: 8:15 pm ET

Broadcast: NBC

Key injuries: Again, Marvin Harrison is out. Don't expect him back until maybe the last game of the regular season. DT Raheem Brock is also out with a rib injury. RT Ryan Diem has a chance to return. Baltimore is coming off a very emotional loss to the Patriots last week; a game where the Ravens simply lost their nerve and their cool. They will look to bounce back and take their aggression out on the Colts.

The Colts must weather Baltimore's early storm of emotion and look to smack the Ravens around (again) by running the football at them. On defense, pressuring Kyle Boller into mistakes is the key. Look for Robert Mathis to spring loose. The Colts defense needs to rebound after a bad outing against the Jags. Stuffing Baltimore's run and forcing Kyle Boller to throw will allow Mathis, Dawson, and the others to tee off on the QB. Baltimore will likely use a variety of blitzes and coverages to attempt to confuse Peyton. The key is eliminating turnovers and generating them on defense.

Rexx, SB Nation's die-hard Ravens blogger over at Baltimore Beatdown, will blog a Ravens fan's POV over on his site.

Here's to a good, clean game with (please) no injuries. Go Indianapolis Colts!
