The Indianapolis Colts host the Philadelphia Eagles in Monday Night Football to end Week 2, with Andrew Luck hoping to inspire the hosts to victory.
While the Colts were defeated by the Denver Broncos in Week 1, Philadelphia were victorious after an impressive comeback against the Jacksonville Jaguars to recover from a 17-0 half-time deficit.
This will be the first time that quarterback Luck has faced the Eagles, and it is the first time since November 2010 that these two teams will square off. As a result, it is an intriguing battle that many are caution to predict which way it will likely go.
Nevertheless, Luck holds the key to the Colts’ level of success this season and given that the team are currently on a 33-game streak of not losing consecutive games, they will undoubtedly be fully focused on bouncing back from last weekend’s disappointment.
If they are to succeed, then they will have to cope with Chip Kelly’s offense,but with the news that Robert Mathis will miss the rest of the season with an Achilles tendon injury, they will be missing a significant part of their defense in disrupting the opposition signal caller.
Bjoern Werner will be tasked in filling Mathis’ cleats, but it remains to be seen whether or not he can play a key role in ensuring that Coach Chuck Pagano can maintain his streak of not losing back-to-back games during his tenure.
Given that it’s the home opener for the Colts, the hosts will be favoured. However, the Eagles possess some dangerous offensive weapons and will want to pick up from where they left off last weekend.
