San Diego Chargers at Indianapolis Colts: As the season progresses, it is enjoyable to watch a division rival play the same team the Broncos have recently played just for comparison – like the Chargers are doing in week three.
Last week the Colts visited Denver and played well making the second half very entertaining. Thanks to Denver’s defense (interception and fumble returned for touchdown) the Broncos handed the Colts a loss. Will San Diego be able to visit the Colts and cause as much havoc for Andrew Luck as the Broncos did?
Highly unlikely but you never know. Last week the Chargers easily beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 38-14 in San Diego. Jacksonville didn’t even score their two touchdowns until the fourth quarter. San Diego should not think their Sunday in Indianapolis will be as easy; say what you want but Andrew Luck is the real deal!
Holding Blake Bortles scoreless for three-quarters is one thing, doing it to Andrew Luck at home probably won’t happen, even if the Colts are 0-2. I expect the Colts to come out ready to play after the heart breaking loss in Denver.
Prediction: San Diego 17, Indianapolis 31 (Andrew Luck and Colts at home too much for Chargers; Chargers fall to last place in division if my predictions are correct)
Go Broncos – beat the Bengals!
