The Patriots bounced back last week against the Dolphins, as many expected, handing them their first loss of the season. The Patriots also get Julian Edelman back from his 4-game suspension. At the same time however, Rob Gronkowski’s status is in question due to an ankle injury. Josh Gordon’s role should also continue to expand.
The Colts will have 7 players out including T.Y. Hilton, tight end Jack Doyle and starting running back Marlon Mack. Frank Reich decided that the Colts went practice this because of the short week and how long the game went on Sunday. On Monday they had a film session and Tuesday and Wednesday are walkthroughs.
The Patriots should win easily has the Patriots has owned the Colts over the past few years. The game is at home in Foxboro and they also thrive on short weeks. All this being said the Pats when this 35-17 pulling away late.
