Ron Glover’s @TSFSports Week 7 NFL Predictions: Lucas Oil Stadium will forever be known as Peyton’s Place
Peyton Manning will make the Colts pay for owner Jim Irsay’s comments come Sunday.
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay took all the warm and fuzzy out of Peyton Manning’s return to Indy when he placed the Colts shortcomings with Manning at the forefront of his conversations. Irsay mentioned the Patriots, Ravens, Steelers and even the Giants — who have one multiple Lombardi Trophies.
Manning has opted to withhold his response to Irsay’s comments until Sunday evening.
Thursday October 17, 2013 8:25 pm:
Seattle Seahawks (5-1) at Arizona Cardinals (3-3) - Larry Fitzgerald has done a lot against some great secondaries, but this Seattle bunch is skilled and physical. The Cardinals can’t run the ball and Carson Palmer is known to throw picks in bunches.
Seahawks 23 – Cardinals 12
Sunday October 20, 2013 1:00 pm:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5) at Atlanta Falcons (1-4) - Injuries to Julio Jones and Steven Jackson have all but crippled the Falcons hopes for a Super Bowl run.
Falcons 20 – Buccaneers 17
Chicago Bears (4-2) at Washington (1-4) - The Bears are rested facing a Washington team still in search of an offensive groove.
Bears 24 – DC 20
Dallas Cowboys (3-3) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) - Tony Romo has never faced a Philadelphia defense this porous, but you know Romo, he could go off or he can go in the tank. Chip Kelly revs up the offense for this one. DeMarcus Ware is out.
Eagles 33 – Cowboys 31
New England Patriots (5-1) at NY Jets (3-3) - This game has my interest because I like what I see from the Jets defense. New England’s young receivers have come a long way in a very short period.
Patriots 28 – Jets 13
Buffalo Bills (2-4) at Miami Dolphins (3-2) - I don’t believe the Dolphins are well-prepared for Thad Lewis. If Stevie Johnson can go, I like the Bills chances.
Bills 27 – Dolphins 21
San Diego Chargers (3-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6) - If Jacksonville is going to get a win, it could be against the lukewarm Chargers coming off a short week.
Chargers 22 – Jaguars 17
St. Louis Rams (3-3) at Carolina Panthers (2-3) - A poor showing by the Panthers could mean the end for head coach Ron Rivera.
Panthers 26 – Rams 23
Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) at Detroit Lions (4-2) - Andy Dalton will be running for his life Sunday while Reggie Bush will simply run.
Lions 30 – Bengals 24
Games beginning at 4:05 or later:
San Francisco 49ers (4-2) at Tennessee Titans (3-3) - After winning three in a row, I can see the Niners getting tripped up here, but I’ve been wrong before.
Niners 30 – Titans 17
Houston Texans (2-4) at Kansas City Chiefs (6-0) - What’s left for the Texans after their latest disappointment? Meanwhile, Andy Reid is writing one hell of a redemption story.
Baltimore Ravans (3-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4) - I’m sure Mike Tomlin has the Steelers focused for this one. The Ravens offense has no teeth.
Steelers 23 – Ravens 13
Cleveland Browns (3-3) at Green Bay Packers (3-2) - Aaron Rodgers needs Eddie Lacy more than he can imagine. The rook could have a career day against the Browns.
Packers 30 – Browns 13
Denver Broncos (6-0) at Indianapolis Colts (4-2) - This won’t end well for the Colts.
Broncos 38 – Colts 23
Monday October 21, 2013 8:40 pm:
Minnesota Vikings (1-4) at NY Giants (0-6) - Josh Freeman debuts for the Vikings, but the night will be about Adrian Peterson — who will rush for twice as many yards as the Giants.
Vikings 27 – Giants 17
Last Week: 8-5
2013 Season: 40-32
