Peyton Manning and his 1-0 Indianapolis Colts come into Miami tonight set to kick off at 8:30 for a Prime Time battle on ESPN’s Monday Night Football to face a 0-1 Miami Dolphins team. The Dolphins are coming off disappointing 19-7 loss in week 1 to the now 2-0 Atlanta Falcons
Over/Under Betting Line:
These lines were taken from the popular www.Bodog.com sportsbook <- America’s best online sports betting site.
When the Dolphins put the duo of Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams together last week they only combined for 17 carries, not very good at all seeing how Brown’s average carries per game last year was 17. With that being said the Colts tend to have a solid run D with Bob Sanders in the line up, but he is ruled out for tonight’s match up. Sander’s missed last weeks game and the Colts are now ranked 23rd against the run now.
Peyton Manning is missing his head coach, offensive coordinator, Marvin Harrison, Anthony Gonzalez and left tackle Tarik Glenn. The Colt’s offense is not going to be as explosive with some of those key pieces missing. Joseph Addai is not looking like the player he was pre-surgery in his rookie year. The Colts running game of Addai and Donald Brown combined for only 73 yards.
What I am getting at here folks is this is going to be a low scoring game with a lot of short drives and three and outs. Special Teams will play a big factor as there will be lots of field goals and punts.
