The Colts rolled in to Pittsburgh last week hoping to continue the roll that they had been on. Unfortunately for them they ran in to the buzz saw that is 2014's mid season version of Ben Roethlisberger. As we all know Ben passed for 522 yards against the Colts defense and threw for 6 touchdowns, handing them a 51 to 34 defeat. A bounce back game this evening by quarterback Andrew Luck and the Colts will give them a 2 game lead in the AFC South. Despite Luck's 400 yards passing and three touchdown throws last week he will look to improve on a game that also saw him throw 3 picks and a season low 57.8 completion percentage. Things should be easier on the Colts offense on the whole facing a Giants team that is giving up the sixth most yards of any team in the NFL. The Colts may also get a boost on the defensive side of the ball this week with the return of safety LaRon Landry from his four game PED's suspension who is eligible for reinstatement today.
The Giants started 2014 like they start most seasons, by dropping the first to games of the year. They then rallied to win three in a row only to drop two more to division foes the Eagles and Cowboys in consecutive weeks. On the positive side of things for the Giants, after turning in to a turn over machine last season Eli Manning seems to finally be playing at a comfortable level in his new offensive scheme and has not turned the ball over in the three games leading up to tonight. In the Giants last game against the Cowboys Manning threw for 248 yards, three touchdowns, was sacked zero times and registered a rating of 116.7. Despite the blow of losing both wide receiver Victor Cruz and linebacker Jon Beason the Giants will need to rally and get back to winning if they hope to have any shot at a playoff position. The current stretch of games does not get any easier after the Colts with games in Seattle before hosting the 49ers and the Cowboys in their house.
