Week One Vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts have been one of the biggest players throughout the 2015 NFL offseason. No matter what they do they’ll be contenders with Andrew Luck under center but the acquisitions they made around Luck should put a scare in the AFC.
Between T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Donte Moncreif, and first-round pick Phillip Dorsett, Luck could have one of the deepest receiving units around him. Hilton and Dorsett could make for one of the fastest receiving duo’s in the NFL which’ll cause problems for the Buffalo secondary.
The biggest advantage the Bills will have when Luck and the Colts come into town will be their front seven. It was crucial for Indianapolis to not only surround Luck with weapons on the outside but also on the line. The big hogs up front failed to give Luck hardly anytime last season, resulting in 27 sacks and 29 turnovers. There’s no doubt Jerry Hughes will have an extra drive to cause havoc against his former team.
It’s hard to think Buffalo’s secondary will be able to contain Luck and his offense for 60 minutes. Ralph Wilson Stadium will surely be rocking but it won’t be enough.
Prediction: Indianapolis Colts 27, Buffalo Bills 21
