What to Know
The Indianapolis Colts may be playing at home again Sunday, but the experts are forecasting a 3.5-point defeat. They will square off against the Los Angeles Rams at 1 p.m. ET at Lucas Oil Stadium. Indianapolis will be seeking to avenge the 46-9 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Sept. 10 of 2017.
The Colts came up short against the Seattle Seahawks last week, falling 28-16. Indianapolis’ loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of WR Zach Pascal, who snatched two receiving TDs, and QB Carson Wentz, who passed for two TDs and 251 yards on 38 attempts. Wentz ended up with a passer rating of 138.60.
The Indianapolis defensive unit accumulated four sacks for a loss of 16 yards. It was a group effort with four guys contributing.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles had enough points to win and then some against the Chicago Bears last week, taking their matchup 34-14. Los Angeles QB Matthew Stafford was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 321 yards on 26 attempts. Stafford’s 67-yard touchdown toss down the right side of the field to WR Van Jefferson in the first quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
Los Angeles’ win lifted them to 1-0 while Indianapolis’ defeat dropped them down to 0-1. We’ll see if Los Angeles’ success rolls on or if Indianapolis is able to steal their positive momentum.
