ARE YOU READY FOR MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL?!
The most tragic thing to happen this week far was Packers QB Aaron Rodgers suffering a broken collarbone. Just when everyone else was healthy. Well, we have now arrived at the Monday night game. It could actually be a great game. Here's my take.
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS VS TENNESSEE TITANS:
Will Titans QB Marcus Mariota play or not? That is the question. Matt Cassel's performance is not exactly what the Titans need. They will have to find other ways to the the ball down the field outside of trying to run DeMarco Murray up the middle all game. The Colts run defense is not that great so running the ball could be to the Titans' advantage, but that may not lead to a plethora of points. Colts QB Jacoby Brissett is getting in to the hang of the team flow and could surprise folks out there tonight. He is mobile and makes plays on his feet. Even if Mariota does play, there will be a lot of adjustment as his hamstring will still be sore. This will take away from his mobility. Let's call this an upset game (if you can call it that) on Monday night. Give it to the Colts on the road.
That finishes up the week. I hope everyone made out ok. I am going to remind everyone out there again about Domestic ViolenceAwareness this month. It only takes a second to help. Learn how you can help end the violence. Good luck to your teams and picks!
