Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills Predictions

Buffalo Bills will look to get out to a fast start against the Colts. Buffalo needs to make Indianapolis play from behind. The more Philip Rivers has to pass the football the more opportunities the Bills defense has to force him into a mistake.

Indianapolis Colts need to establish a run game early with rookie running back Jonathan Taylor. The Colts have to be careful and cannot become one dimensional against Buffalo. Buffalo Bills are too good of a football team to be one dimensional against them.

Prediction: Buffalo Bills get a quick start and beat the Indianapolis Colts in a blowout home playoff win.
