After a serious bounce-back week for the Pats, my
predictions remain ice cold.This is my
bounce-back predictions blog.Im mostly
confident because I hate the Thursday night game with a passion and I am at my
best when I am mostly fueled by hate.
I’ll keep this quick because the Colts coming to Gilette has
been an automatic W since Peyton went to Denver.Even when Andrew Luck was good, and not an
injured shell of himself, we have worked them like 6 times in a row or
something. What was once a storied
rivalry has now turned all Pats.
The aforementioned Luck is still a legit QB, and he has my
respect.I’m just not convinced he can
beat us on the road.His O-Line has stunk
over the past few years.I don’t know
who his running backs are.TY Hilton is
hurt and confirmed not playing.
Do you know anyone on the Colt’s D?Yea me either.
call this game the Jonah Gray game 2.0:
We were really getting after the run game against the Dolphins, and I
expect that to be a feature of this offense more often than not. Michel is hopefully rounding into form and I
think he gets the rock over 20 times and goes over 100. Hopefully his alarm clock goes off on Friday.
barely plays:I think Gronk will be
active but will barely play. Maybe even a late scratch to force them to prepare for him.If he does play,
he will be just a distraction.I think
they want to keep him fresh, so he will not be part of the game plan andwill have less than 3 catches.Let’s see if Dwayne Allen can be called out
of the witness protection program.
teams is special:I don’t have a way to
really measure this, so will likely take credit no matter what.But I’ll know it when I see it.Expect special teams to be a difference
38-24.The Patriots extended preseason
is over.They have a banged up opponent,
at home, on a short week.I think there
is a good chance the Colts roll right over.Put them in for some garbage time points and I think we roll.
