Who are some impact players on both sides of the ball that Saints fans should look for on Sunday?

On offense, I’d watch for Moncrief who is having a very nice season in his second year. With the Saints run defense (or lack thereof) I’d watch out for Frank Gore who is itching to get the Colts their first 100 yard rushing game in four years.

On defense, Robert Mathis would be the obvious choice as he has been begging to get back to a full time role with the Colts. Outside of him, it would be Vontae Davis, who despite an up and down season, should not be tested too much.

Alright, these two clubs both need a victory on Sunday. America is siding with the Colts. How do you see this game playing out, and what’s your final score prediction?

I think this will be a shootout. The Colts typically struggle against QBs with a pulse and the Saints will be able to attack the Colts weaknesses on defense. I expect the Colts offense to come out of its shell this week, and if they can’t against that defense there is going to be real trouble in Indianapolis.

The Colts are in the middle of a rough stretch of the schedule and this appears to be the most winnable game right now. I believe they pull off a win this week, but it could come down to which team has the ball last.
