Indianapolis Colts vs. New York Jets: Preview and Prediction

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

Two teams that few people gave realistic chances of winning last week didn't just make their games competitive.

The Indianapolis Colts beat the Green Bay Packers after staging a comeback for the ages. 

The New York Jets, meanwhile, played a scrappy, creative game against the Houston Texans that was much closer (not to mention more entertaining) than anyone expected it to be. 

Now, both teams look to build on the positives from those games as they get set to face each other in MetLife Stadium. The problem for both teams is a severe lack of offensive firepower, though the Colts have an extremely promising quarterback in Andrew Luck and a veteran presence in wide receiver Reggie Wayne.

The Jets' offensive production has been reduced to hoping that quarterback Mark Sanchez's first read is open, because when he's forced to read the field, things get ugly fast. And that's not all on Sanchez; many of the guys he's throwing to are pretty terrible. 

In the video above, we look at the key matchups, discuss whether or not the Jets should take Terrell Owens up on his offer, and give a prediction on the score. Let us know in the comments below what you think the score will be and which matchups you'll be watching during the game.
