The Indianapolis Colts continue their difficult stretch in the middle of their season. As an early prediction, the Colts will probably beat the Saints. But if there was going to be an all-out shootout game, this would be it. Expect the score to be well over 30 for both teams. They play the New Orleans Saints and their formidable Drew Brees at Lucas Oil Stadium on October 25th.
Drew Brees will be welcomed back to Indiana by many Purdue alumni, even though he’s not playing for the home team He led the Boilermakers to major Big Ten glory before he was drafted by the San Diego Chargers. He leads the division title hopeful Saints.
The Saints are trying for a bounce-back season after last year’s disappointing 7-9 record. They’ve upped their defense. They’re likely to make a playoff run this year, the only major question being if they can defeat a team like Seattle or the Packers without home field advantage.
Watch for rookie rusher Hau’oli Kikaha to start most games for the Saints. He’ll hopefully help last year’s issues and be effective on pass rush. Hopefully neither he nor any other player will get into fights at joint practice sessions with the Patriots.
