B/R Consensus Pick: Seahawks (9-3)
Schottey: Seahawks, 30-22
I've got the game this close because I respect the heck out of the Colts and it's at Lucas Oil Stadium. That said, we still haven't seen the "best" out of a Seahawks team that is still adding pieces back from injury and suspension. I think we'll get a sneak peek against the Colts, who have hiccupped on offense a bit much for my liking.
Bowen: Seahawks, 24-20
Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck will grab the headlines this week, but I am focused on Richard Sherman and Reggie Wayne. That's the difference in another Seahawks road win.
Schalter: Seahawks, 28-24
I really, really agonized about this one. The Colts have balance and great turnover margin—but like Annie Oakley, anything the Colts can do the Seahawks do better.
Freeman: Seahawks, 17-14
Indy won't be able to move the ball against that great defense.
Miller: Seahawks, 28-21
The Seahawks are due a road loss, but the Colts won't be able to push them around like they did the 49ers.
Frenz: Colts, 30-20
The Seahawks have won two games on the road this season and have so far silenced the stigma that they don't travel well, but the Colts just have a magic about them in Lucas Oil Stadium. Seattle has played well, but is due for an upset.
Hangst: Seahawks, 24-20
The Seahawks aren't as dangerous on the road as they are at home, but they showed against the Texans that they can battle back and win a hard-fought overtime contest. The addition of Trent Richardson has helped better protect Luck, but the entire Seahawks defense will be too much for the Colts offense to overcome. Seattle will remain undefeated.
Hansen: Seahawks, 24-21
The Colts don't have the defensive line to expose the Seahawks offensive line like J.J. Watt and the Texans did last Sunday.
Bardeen: Colts, 26-23
On paper, this game should go to the Seahawks, especially since they are coming off a scare from Houston last week. For some reason, though, I like Luck and the newly added Richardson to pull off the upset at home.
Gagnon: Colts, 26-23
The Seahawks merely survived against Carolina and Houston on the road. The Colts are better than both of those teams. Time for Seattle to finally drop a game.
Langland: Seahawks, 21-17
Playing on the road is no longer the Seahawks' weakness, which means they are the most complete team in football. This game in Indianapolis will be a dogfight, but Seattle will prevail thanks in large part to its strong secondary play and formidable pass rush.
Kruse: Seahawks, 24-20
You can't get much better than Wilson vs. Luck in terms of a young quarterback showdown. The difference here is the Seattle defense, which has carried the Seahawks in two road wins this season.
