NFL Underdog Pick for Week 14
December 10th 2009 - Special K
Denver Broncos (+7) at Indianapolis Colts
You heard it here first, the Denver Broncos will put an end to the Colts
undefeated season. If anyone knows how to beat Peyton Manning and the Colts,
it's Josh McDaniels. Let's not forget that Broncos' head coach Josh McDaniels
spent 8 years in New England under Belichick. Every year the Colts and Patriots
battled it out so having this familiarity of facing the Colts is a big advantage
for the Broncos this weekend.
The Denver Broncos are also completely healthy entering this game in
Indianapolis. The Broncos defense matches up very well against Manning
and the Colts offense. The Broncos defense ranks 2nd in the NFL in passing yards
and I look for Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins to give the Colts trouble in the
secondary. We all know Reggie Wayne can not be stopped but Bailey may be able to
slow him down and force Manning to rely on his rookie wideouts (Garcon and
Collie). The Broncos defense has really only struggled this season against teams
with a power rushing attack and the Colts do not have this.
Look for the Broncos ground game with Knowshon Moreno (3 TD's in his last two
games) and Correll Buckhalter to take some of the pressure off of Kyle Orton and
the pass rush of Robert Mathis (questionable) and Dwight Freeney. Orton has
proven to be a great game manager and the Broncos should be able to control the
clock keeping the dangerous Peyton Manning on the sidelines.
Look for Don Shula and Mercury Morris
to be busting out a bottle of champagne after this game :)
Take the Broncos to win straight up
