Indianapolis Colts vs New England Patriots Pick and Prediction – Week 11

Updated: November 13, 2014

The Indianapolis Colts had a bye week to celebrate their big 40-24 win over the New York Giants on the road in which Andrew Luck threw for 354 yards and four touchdowns. The Colts offense continued to dominate as it had no problems moving the ball against the Giants defense which allowed 443 total yards and an average of 6.2 yards per play.   Luck is one pace to break Peyton Manning`s single passing yards record as he is on a tear right now and no team has found a way to slow him down. He has shown the ability to scramble from the pocket and make some big plays with his feet.  The Colts offense is legit but, the defense has been subpar, especially the pass defense which ranks 27th in the league.  It will have deliver a solid performance against the visiting New England Patriots on Sunday if the Colts want to win their seventh game of the season.

Just like Colts , the New England Patriots picked up a big win before the bye week as they cruised past Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-21 at home.  Tom Brady once again got the upper hand against his long-time friend and rival Manning.  Brady threw for 333 yards , four touchdowns and one interception while Manning threw for 438 yards , two touchdowns and two interceptions. Similar numbers but, most of Manning`s numbers came in garbage time when the Patriots had already built a big lead.  Brady will again have to carry his team against the Colts as this game could potentially be a shootout considering the way both offenses are playing as of late.

Betting consensus: The Indianapolis Colts are favored by -2.5 at home with 55% of the Public betting on the New England Patriots on the road.

Prediction: Indianapolis Colts 34, New England Patriots 27

Pick: Indianapolis Colts -2.5
