ams and a prediction OverviewOn September 23 [url=http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/jordan-wilkins-jersey]Authentic Jordan Wilkins Jersey[/url] , 2018 the Indianapolis Colts will make the trip to take on the Philadelphia Eagles. In this week three match-up I sought to understand our opponent and get a better idea of how they may attack our new look Colts.The Eagles, as you may have heard finished last season by beating the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. As happy as I am the Patriots lost and Frank Reich is now the head coach of the Colts, I don’t want to give the defending champs anything they don’t earn. The last time these two teams played was September 15, 2014. The Eagles came out victorious four years ago but neither team is remotely similar to their 2014 counterparts. Hopefully our Colts can pull off an improbable win.Let’s figure out what we can expect in week three.Kicker:Photo by Mitchell Leff/Getty ImagesJake Elliott is a 2nd year player out of Memphis. He’s a career 82% field goal kicker but he is 5 for 6 from beyond 50 yards. If what I believe is correct Elliott’s services could mean the difference between a Colts win and a Colts loss. He’s 1 for 2 on the year, hopefully he joins the list of bad kicker performances the rest of the league experienced last weekend. Punter:Photo by Brett Carlsen/Getty ImagesCameron Johnston is a first year pro out of Ohio State. We don’t have many stats to look back at but this far in his career he is averaging nearly 54 yards per punt while pinning 4 balls inside the opponents 20 yard line. I believe, perhaps incorrectly, that Johnston is going to get a chance to show off his leg in this one. It will be interesting to see what kind of opportunities our returners have if he out kicks his coverage. Returner:Photo by Elsa/Getty ImagesBoth Darren Sproles and Shelton Gibson will handle return duties if healthy. If not Corey Clement is listed as next in line for both kick and punt return duties. Clement says he is at 100%. If Sproles can return punts he’s averaging nearly 10 yards per return in 2018. Shelton Gibson is a second year pro out of West Virginia. This is his first year returning kicks and is averaging just 21.5 yards per return. The Colts special teams units have been respectable but hardly eye popping. I don’t feel that the return game will be what shifts the game in either direction. Final Thoughts for The Week:The last time I felt this unsure about calling a game for either team was week one. See, I didn’t have any idea how the Colts would come out. I didn’t know if they had hired good coaches. I didn’t know how the new additions would look in their first game action. I didn’t know a lot. So I come into this game and as much as I think I’ve learned about the 2018 Colts in the first two weeks of the season, there’s still so much we just can’t know about Carson Wentz and how the Eagles plan to use him. Truly this game could go either way and a lot of it rides on how well Wentz plays. If he comes out and looks like he did before his injury [url=http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/jack-doyle-jersey]http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/jack-doyle-jersey[/url] , it might be a long day. If he comes out and shows any sign of not having played football for so long, then it’s probably going to be a very good day.PredictionColts 24Eagles 17 The Green Bay Packers' acquisition of linebacker Antonio Morrison from the Indianapolis Colts had as much to do with the season-ending knee injury suffered by Jake Ryan a month ago as Oren Burks' recent shoulder injury.Green Bay needed another player with NFL experience at inside linebacker.Since Ryan went down July 31, third-year player Blake Martinez has been surrounded by nothing but inexperience — third-round rookie Burks and undrafted free agents Ahmad Thomas, Greer Martini, Naashon Hughes, Marcus Porter and James Crawford. They were all in their first NFL training camp."Antonio is obviously an experienced linebacker, and if you look at the youth of the group, something that we felt we needed to add," coach Mike McCarthy said.Morrison changes the equation. A fourth-round pick in 2016 [url=http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/andrew-luck-jersey]Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey[/url] , the 6-foot-1, 241-pounder played in 31 games in two seasons with the Colts. Of his 19 career starts, 15 came last season, when he finished with a team-high 109 tackles.Burks, who replaced Ryan in the starting lineup and had formed the No. 1 tandem with Martinez, dislocated a shoulder before Friday's game at the Oakland Raiders. McCarthy said the test results were better than anticipated and the injury "should not be a long-term deal.""That's what it's looking like," Burks said. "But at the same time, just trying to take it one day at a time and do the rehab."Martini, who was more of a special-teams standout at Notre Dame [url=http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/eric-ebron-jersey]Womens Eric Ebron Jersey[/url] , and Thomas, who played safety at Oklahoma, rotated in with Martinez throughout the first half at Oakland. They'll get the bulk of the playing time in Thursday night's preseason finale at Kansas City."Super proud of them," Burks said. "It's a new opportunity. Like when I had to step up, it's time for them to step up."General manager Brian Gutekunst dealt from a position of strength to bolster a position of weakness by dealing cornerback Lenzy Pipkins. Pipkins flashed potential in 12 games last season, which included extensive action in both games against Minnesota.But with Gutekunst adding Tramon Williams in free agency and using his first two draft picks on Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, Pipkins became expendable.Notes: QB Brett Hundley's performance against the Raiders was "probably the highlight of the night," McCarthy said. Hundley led the Packers to an opening field goal but was challenged by the performance of the offensive line, which was made up entirely of backups. ... One of those backups [url=http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/al-woods-jersey]http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/al-woods-jersey[/url] , Kyle Murphy, struggled while starting at right tackle against Oakland. He was seen in the locker room Sunday wearing a walking boot on his right foot. He missed most of last season with an injured left foot. ... Based on performance and Murphy's injury, Jason Spriggs is "definitely that guy" as the top backup tackle, McCarthy said. ... RB Ty Montgomery, who exited following the first drive with an injured foot, said "I'm not injured. Nothing happened."
