Gonna go with
Lions - 37
Colts - 27
Neither team can stop anyone but the Colts haven't been able to consistently turn red zone trips into touchdowns and I don't think they have anyone who can stop Megatron so I'd give the edge to the Lions. I love being wrong though when it comes to picking against the Colts!
Tom Zbikowski has been ruled out for this game, Joe Lefeged and Sergio Brown will split snaps
The Colts aren't perfect, but neither are the Lions. I actually think Indy has a better all-around team than Detroit. The only factor that sways things towards Detroit is that it's at their house. But Detroit is hardly unbeatable at home. They've lost to some good teams, but they've only beaten the Rams, Jags, Eagles, and Seahawks. The only team above .500 is Seattle.
But "any given Sunday"....
I'll say Colts 24, Lions 10
Jacob Lacey needs to be picked on in this game...we all know of his performace in the Colts uniform

Help us Paul George......you're our only hope
I think Vontae Davis definitely needs to get back for this game, he is our best corner and i would feel a lot better out there with him on megatron instead of Darius Butler
Moala to IR
Moala's been OK, but just the sheer number of DL bodies going down is a bummer
Fleener and Davis being back is going to be good for us.
I think we can win it. We just have to get some pressure to Stafford and make him make mistakes. If this was a home game I'd be more confident.
Super Bowl XLI Champions
2000 Eastern Conference Champions
This is the least important game left on the schedule because it won't play into a tiebreaker. A win of course would be great and all but lock up a playoff spot, but a loss won't kill us.
Go Chargers (blech) and go Ravens!
Based on the body of work from the past two weeks, I don't think we'll win this. Plus it's on the road. But who knows, hopefully I'm proven wrong.
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
they are trying to have Calvin line up on the other side of Vontae Davis and against Cassius Vaughn, know thats the better match up, bad news for us
The craziest thing about this Colts team is that we've had crappy players like Butler and Vaughn playing a majority of the time and we are still winning. Think about everyone who has missed time, Davis, Fleener, Avery, Mathis, Freeney, Redding, Angerer, Powers, Brown, Satele. Heck Austin Collie was supposed to be here ()
We really need a receiver like Collie right now. I wish we had 2009 Collie or 2010 pre-injury Collie on this team.
damn how long did the colts have the lead smh....
Help us Paul George......you're our only hope
Swiss cheese D all the way.
I'd rather die standing up than live on my knees.
I've actually been impressed by Vontae Davis out there, maybe it is because they are throwing at our other corners, but can anyone recall a completion this game on him?
Looks like you'll need to find a new one of those Collie's in the off season. I can't imagine the Colts signing him again with his concussion history and frankly for Austin I hope the lure of really good money and can't give up football doesn't sway him in that direction. It already seems players have a short life span so don't make the mistake of hitting middle age and having no memory of anything.
You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....
There's something about Stafford's game that strikes me as off. He seems to be fairly easily figured out. His side-winder throwing motion is weird. The guy can absolutely wing it, but not always accurate, not a very great form or stance. Sort of like Cutler, but bigger/stronger and not as much of a loose cannon. They'll wow you here and there with some amazing plays, and you can even win some games with them, but you're hardpressed to see them going deep in the playoffs because they just lack that sort of structure in their game.
Having Megatron to throw to makes you look a little better, too.
It just seems like if you can reduce the big plays, they are pretty mediocre, and it's not all that hard to reduce the big plays.

I'm sure most of you remember the last time we went to Detroit. It was Thanksgiving 2004. Manning threw 6 TDs and we beat the crap out of them. 41-9.
WTF does is take for Suh to get suspended?
