NFL Week 4 Picks: Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Prediction
This is a rough match up for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have given up the fourth most passing yards per game so far in 2010 (289), and will be facing a locked-in Peyton Manning who has completed 69 percent of his passes so far through three weeks. The Indianapolis offense is thriving even while not being at full strength. Note that this week they'll once again be without receiver Pierre Garcon, and both Colts running backs are injury question marks. Joseph Addai is questionable for Sunday with a knee injury, but the Colts will need him given their other featured runner, Donald Brown, has been ruled out.
But maybe the Colts don't even need to line up with a running back in the backfield. The Jaguars secondary has been downright bad this year, and their offense has not done much either. The Colts' gameplan will be to pass and pass some more, and the onus is on Jacksonville to stop Peyton from dicing them apart.
The Jaguars' only hope is for a big game from Maurice Jones-Drew, something he's yet to deliver this season. The Colts have been poor against the run, allowing 141 rushing yards per game so far, in large part due to the Arian Foster explosion in Week 1. Still, even if Jones-Drew goes off, I think the Colts will win by a few scores.
My Prediction: Indianapolis Colts 35, Jacksonville Jaguars 21
