Luck, Colts Look To Get On Track Versus Eagles In High Scoring MNF Showdown

Posted by Stan Simmons on 9/12/2014 10:59:02 PM

A slow start cost the Indianapolis Colts a chance to open the year with a win against Peyton Manning and the defending AFC champion Denver Broncos in week one. Now they will look to get on track against another playoff team from a year ago that completed a big comeback win of week one. Andrew Luck and the Colts will host Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles in a battle of high-scoring offenses. Indianapolis is favored by three points and with so much firepower between these teams this could very easily come down to a shootout on Monday Night Football.

NFL Betting Line: Indianapolis -3

The Eagles came back from a 17-points halftime deficit to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars and save a lot of people their survivor pool pick. Avoiding turnovers is something Philadelphia did well a year ago but struggled with in its opener and that will be a point of emphasis for Chip Kelly’s team in week two.

Foles had two fumbles and an interception in the first 20 minutes of the game against Jacksonville, nearly matching the four turnovers he had all of last season. It took Mark Sanchez warming up on the sideline for Foles to regain his composure and he finished strong with 183 passing yards and two touchdowns as he led the Eagles’ comeback. The tandem of LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles will be key again as they look to keep the pressure off of Foles in the pocket while moving the football. The Philadelphia defense was exposed to big plays against Chad Henne and an average Jaguars’ offense last week and they will have a tough time slowing down Luck and the Colts.

Luck took some time to get going as well in week one but he ended up throwing for 370 yards and two touchdowns as Indianapolis came back to at least cover as a road underdog versus Manning and the Broncos. The Colts have three excellent receivers in TY Hilton, Reggie Wayne, and Hakeem Nicks and all three will see plenty of touches this week as the ground game continues to struggle with Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw failing to provide many big plays in week one. The Indianapolis defense rallied to hold Manning and the Broncos to a single second-half touchdown a week ago and will hope to carry over the momentum from that finish.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Both of these offenses should put up plenty of points in week two but it’s the Colts that bring the better defense and home advantage in to this contest. Indianapolis can’t afford to fall to 0-2 with a loss at home so look for Luck and the Colts to put up some big numbers on this suspect Philadelphia defense while their own defense does just enough for them to cover.
