The Indianapolis Colts (1-3) will visit the Baltimore Ravens (3-1) at M&T Bank Stadium in Week 5. Carson Wentz and the Colts picked up their first win with a 27-17 victory in Miami.
Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens got their third win and are heating up after a strong 23-7 thumping of the Denver Broncos. Early NFL betting odds for this game have the Ravens as the home -7 favorite, and the point total set at 46. Let’s dive into this matchup.
Indianapolis dominated the Dolphins on the road. Wentz threw for two touchdowns and Jonathan Taylor ran for his first 100-yard game of the season.
The Colts haven’t been spectacular but are finding their way with Wentz finally healthy at quarterback. Expect more of Taylor and the ground game to create holes for Wentz against a solid Ravens defense.
The Colts will try to counter a red-hot Raven offense with an opportunistic defense. Indianapolis is only allowing 216 yards through the air and are takeaway machines. The defense has forced five fumbles and have three interceptions, including two vs the Dolphins. Indy’s defense has to show up on Sunday to give the offense a chance to win the game.
Baltimore’s defense allowed just seven points to the Broncos and handed them their first loss. Justin Houston and Tyus Bowser were pressuring the quarterback constantly and the defense picked up five total sacks and an interception.
The Ravens have won three in a row after dropping the season opener to the Las Vegas Raiders in overtime. Baltimore got its NFL record 43rd straight 100-yard rushing game and its passing offense is starting to come alive.
Lamar Jackson has averaged over 300 yards through the air his last two games, and he will only get better with receiver Rashod Bateman, a first-round draft pick, expected to play this week.
