The Indianapolis Colts have their work cut out for them this week.
They will be playing a Green Bay offense that is led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers has thrown for 1,064 yards and seven touchdowns. Green Bay boasts a receiving core that is the envy of the entire NFL. The Packers have also improved their running game with offseason pick up Cedric Benson.
That being said, look for the Indianapolis Colts to contain this explosive offense. The Colts have allowed an average of 231 yard per game. The majority of this damage was done by Jay Cutler in Week 1. Last week, the Colts held Blaine Gabbert to just 155 yards.
The Colts recently signed corner back Darius Butler. Adding this veteran corner to a secondary that already includes Vontae Davis and Jerraud Powers can only improve the Colts secondary.
The tough defense of the Colts is led by linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who has registered 27 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception. He will look to lead the underrated Colts defense against the Packers this Sunday.
If the Colts can contain the impressive Packers offense, they might have a chance to upset Aaron Rodgers and company.
