The Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles meet Sunday in NFL Week 11 at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Philadelphia Eagles entered this game with their first loss of the year after losing 32-21 to Washington last time out. Jalen Hurts threw for 2,217 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions on a 67.9-percent passing rate while rushing for 354 yards and 7 touchdowns. Miles Sanders has 710 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns, while AJ Brown has a team-high 725 yards and 44 receptions this season. DeVonta Smith has 481 yards, while Dallas Goedert also has 544 yards this season. In terms of defense, TJ Edwards has 88 total tackles including 53 solo while the Philly defense as a unit has 29 sacks and 13 interceptions this season.
The Indianapolis Colts are looking to build on their 25-20 win over Las Vegas in their final game. Matt Ryan threw for 2,230 yards, 10 touchdowns and 9 interceptions on a 68.9 passer percentage, while Jonathan Taylor has 609 yards this season. Michael Pittman Jr. leads Indy’s receiving group with 61 grabs for 603 yards while Alec Pierce has 393 yards and Paris Campbell has 39 for 373 yards so far this season. In terms of defense, Zaire Franklin has a total of 97 tackles, including 63 solo, while the Indy defense as a whole has 25 sacks and 4 interceptions.
Philadelphia has gone 2-12 ATS in its last 14 games after a double-digit loss at home and 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games, while going 6-1 in its last 7 games against a team with a losing record. Indianapolis is 6-0 ATS in its last 6 games in Week 11 and 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games after a win while being less than 5-0 in its last 5 games against a team with a winning record.
I get the Colts status at home, but it seems like a low-key buy on the Eagles. I still have trust issues with Indianapolis, even though they signed up for their new coach in Jeff on Saturday and he’s going to gather strength and be ready to go with that coach. It’s still the Indianapolis Colts, the same team that made their way through the first half of the year. I’m a little tired of Philadelphia falling into the Arizona group where you start hot and stumble once it’s your first loss but even if that’s a possible outcome, I still think Philly has more chances to win by touchdown. Give me the eagles here.
