Indianapolis Professional Football Team – 24
Baltimore Ravens – 17
I believe this game will be a little closer than expected, and Indy could be rusty to begin due to their resting. But, Peyton Manning and Co. are jus going to be a little too much for the Ravens secondary, and the Ravens running game won’t be enough to win this time. I would be thrilled to be wrong, but I believe Indy gets the win here. Go Ravens!
Indy wins 20-17
The defense keeps it close to the bitter end. Ultimately, the Colts D finds a way to take out Rice and the rest of the offense sputters.
Colts 24, Ravens 17
Ravens hold the Colts down for a while, but Manning gets a game winning drive late.
C’mon fellow BSR’ers you gotta believe. I think that this match up definitely isn’t in Baltimore’s favor. The Colts will stop the run and pressure Flacco, but the Ravens O gets off to a quick start and Indy can’t catch up.
Colts 17, Ravens 14
Just as it happened earlier in the season, the Ravens hold down Manning, but fall too far behind before falling short in their comeback.
Colts cannot flip the switch and face the most pressure of any team in the playoffs. Ravens are playing with house money and are all in.
Ravens keep strong ground game going, control clock and limit the Colts with hard hitting defense.
Colts 28, Ravens 20
Manning will expose Ravens secondary. Colts force Flacco to throw the ball more than he wants to. Freeney and Mathis will have a field day with the Ravens offensive line and will be all over Flacco all day long. Colts will score touchdowns and Ravens will settle for field goals.
