Yes their record isn't great, I saw a team against Philly that almost won. Offense isn't great great, I think their defense could create some problems for us. Interested in watching them before they play us. Please give me your thoughts on them.

I hope nobody is saying we should blow them off the earth, let's stop that talk until there's :01 seconds on the clock and WE have the ball with more than one point than they have!!!!

Yeah that defense is a legitimate defense, but their offense is pretty bad. Matt Ryan isn't the Matt Ryan of old, the guys arm just isnt what it was even a couple years ago. Since he was benched he has been 21-28 for 222 and 23-32 for 213 with 0 ints in either game. Prior to being benched he was throwing it 40-50 times almost every week. I'd expect to see two similar offenses from a run/pass distribution stand point. The difference being the Cowboys have the bigger play potential with their QB, and I like the Cowboys pass rush vs this Colts oline. Only real chance I see is if the Colts can run like crazy on Dallas. This seems to be a pretty typical get ahead early, make the other team go away from the run, and it should be an easy W. Get a slow start on offense, let JT break loose a few big runs and this game becomes a nail-biter til the end.

That said......27-14 Cowboys
I think this will be very similar to the Giants game. It will be a 1 score game until middle to late 4th quarter. The Cowboys may even be on the wrong end of that 1 score and have to come from behind like Philly did.

Don't even yawn let alone sleep and cut out any sneers especially from those players with chewing tobacco stained teeth.

the Colts have good skill position players, and Matt Ryan IS still at least decent but their OL is straight trash, Matt Ryan's delivery has gotten slow, and he couldn't escape from an empty unlocked closet. I'm not looking past them, but I was a lot more worried about the Giants on Thanksgiving Day.

we should smoke them. Not even a close game. Our defense will likely score more than they do.

Im going to sleep on them starting now.

I live in colts country. Colts fans are not happy with this team. their defense is solid, but their Oline is not good. They don't have WR's that scare anybody, so load the box and stop the running game. Get out to a lead and force them to be one dimensional and we should beat up Matt Ryan. I think this will be a comfortable win: 30-13

their defense is good, top 5. specially their pass defense, which means it will give us problems. we have to win another ugly one and hopefully the defense can contain Taylor. at least we don't have to worry about their QB running, which is what gives us fits every time.

Taylor is a stud.

they are a bad matchup to us ,they can run the ball well and stop the run but they cant cover TEs.it may be a low scoring game but we will win.

We lost to the Packers with a 14-point lead. I don't sleep on any team. But we aren't losing this game.
