The Colts travel to Green Bay Thursday night still looking for their first win of the preseason. Peyton Manning played five series and led the Colts to a pair of TD (one rush, one pass) in the first quarter of their 34-21 loss to the Bills last Thursday, but also had an INT returned 78 yards for a score. The Colts D surrendered a pair of long first-quarter scores: a 31-yard run and a 70-yard pass. Backup Curtis Painter bounced back from a dismal opener to complete 5-of-6 passes for 97 yards, including a 43-yard TD strike to Taj Smith. Odds
The Packers dropped their preseason opener to the Browns 27-24, but bounced back to beat the Seahawks by the same score in their second game. Through two games, Aaron Rodgers is already in midseason form, having completed 20-of-24 attempts for 275 yards and 3 TD without an INT. Backup Matt Flynn has not been as sharp, connecting on 19-of- 35 for 199 yards and 2 INT without throwing a TD. He’s also been sacked three times to Rodgers’ none. Scores
It’s difficult to think the Colts would go winless in the preseason. Consider this from FoxSheets:
Play On – Underdogs or pick (INDIANAPOLIS) – winless in the preseason. (80-42 over the last 10 seasons.) (65.6%, +33.8 units. Rating = 2*). Las Vegas Odds
