The Indianapolis Colts are hoping to put a 51-34 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers behind them as they face the New York Giants.
Jon Beason out for season – New York Giants linebacker out for season with toe injury
Steelers beat Colts – Pittsburgh Steelers beat Indianapolis Colts, 51-34
Cowboys beat Giants – Dallas Cowboys defeat New York Giants, 31-21
The New York Giants are returning from their bye week, and they have lost two games in a row. Before that, they had won three games in a row, so it is still a mystery what kind of team they are.
Playing the Indianapolis Colts will be a perfect test for the Giants. The Colts are coming off an abysmal defensive performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who defeated them, 51-34.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 522 yards and five touchdown passes against the Colts, so the Colts defense will look to prove that they have improved and that last week was just a fluke.
Quarterback Andrew Luck throwing a couple of interceptions didn’t help matters, but he was also able to throw for 400 yards and three touchdowns. He now has 22 total touchdown passes this season.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning is enjoying a solid season, and he threw three touchdown passes in a 31-21 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Manning has played virtually mistake-free since Week 2, throwing just one interception in his last five games. This is all despite losing Victor Cruz, who is out for the season with a knee injury.
The Colts offense will be too much for the Giants to overcome though, and the Colts are seeking a redemption win after being upset by the Steelers.
Prediction: Colts 27, Giants 21
