Broncos vs Colts Preview
The Colts continue to give Frank Gore lots of work and last Sunday he had 36 carries against the Bills. The only concern here is it is a short week but the Colts have no real alternative to Gore so I expect him to get 25+ touches tonight. The Broncos running back C.J. Anderson seems to be the number one back again and the Broncos will rely on the running game until they find an NFL quarterback. The Colts will get the running game going and that will free up T.Y. Hilton to get a few big plays. Colts tight end Jack Doyle is Brissett’s favorite target, and the Broncos have been weak against tight ends. The Broncos wide receivers are hard to play in this spot because the Denver quarterbacks just can’t be trusted. Demaryius Thomas had 12 targets against the Jets. The hard part about trying to judge him by targets is that so many of the passes are not catchable.

This is an ugly game. I can tell you right now that I will be doing my Christmas shopping tonight instead of watching this game. It is hard to believe that the Colts have the better quarterback tonight but sadly they do.
