Real surprised the Colts fans pick the Colts to win, right?
Stampede Blue's prediction is that this will be a tight game into the fourth quarter but eventually Peyton Manning and Co. will pull away.
Don't let any TV coverage sway your opinion: the Chiefs have played really, really well so far this season. Their schedule has not been as easy as people have said, and they're coming off of a bye. All recipes for disaster.With all that said, these are the kind of games that the Colts always seem to win, even if it isn't pretty. I think it'll be a fairly low scoring game, coming down to the 4th quarter. In a close game in the 4th, I'm really glad I'll be rooting for the team with Peyton Manning.
I think that's a pretty fair write up. Their goal is to get out to a lead and make the Chiefs play from behind, which is probably the key to beating Kansas City. I don't see the Chiefs making many double digit come backs this year, which is why the emphasis on starting fast is so critical.
Stampede Blue has a really good statistical look at the matchup in their Chiefs/Colts game preview.
