The Buffalo Bills will travel to Indianapolis to play the Colts this week. The Bills have proven to be one of the NFL’s more mysterious teams this year. They win when you think they will lose and lose when they should win. The Colts, on the other hand, have surprised people in a different way. They have managed to stay competitive despite major roster change and changes to their overall schemes and coaches. They find themselves fighting for a playoff spot while their coach fights for his life.
Buffalo’s latest game ended 19-14 in favor of Buffalo over the Dolphins. They are now 4-6 as they travel to Lucas Oil stadium to take on the 6-4 Colts. They have had a lot of explosive plays offensively, but struggle mightily on the defensive end of things. They have nearly no shot at the playoffs, but do look like a team that will give it their all down the stretch. The Colts will provide a good measuring stick to see exactly where the team is.
The Colts have had every obstacle in their way of getting wins. They are on a totally revamped team and have a head coach that is currently fighting leukemia. Their latest game, week 11, was an embarrassing 59-24 loss to the New England Patriots who decided to bring them back down to earth. They must look past that and put it behind them as they focus on trying and obtaining a playoff spot. The Bills will not make it easy on them, but the Colts have been very tough at home this year.
