Indianapolis Colts Must Win at Miami

The Indianapolis Colts came into the 2009 season with high expectations. Always a competitive team, anything short of a Super Bowl may be seen as a disappointment in their minds. The team ended up narrowly defeating the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars in week one, leading into a much more difficult week 2 match.

The week 2 game between the Colts and Dolphins is a Monday Night football game and the stakes are high. Miami lost its first game to the Falcons and will look to redeem itself. The defending AFC East champs would hate to open up their season with an 0-2 record.

While the odds makers have the Colts winning this game by three points, the Colts have a few things to worry about that may affect their chances of winning in Miami.

Peyton Manning looked great during the first week of the NFL season, there’s no doubt about that. He connected with Reggie Wayne like they did in 2007, and made use of the rest of his receivers too. However, Anthony Gonzalez, the team’s number two wide receiver, was forced out of the game with injury and will probably miss the remainder of the year as a result. Since the team no longer has Marvin Harrison, this is ample cause for concern.

The Indianapolis Colts must find a way to deep with the absence of Anthony Gonzalez. Normally a team with plenty of receiving options, this isn’t the case this year.

At running back, the team must still address worries about Joseph Addai and his ability to excel at the position. Addai was a top running back during the 2007 NFL season, but his numbers fell off drastically in 2008.

The Monday night game at Miami is a must win for the Indianapolis Colts. Expect Manning to rise to the occasion.
