More so than any other team, the Indianapolis Colts take a knee when there is nothing on the line. For years behind Peyton Manning, they did their work early in the regular season. They took week 16 and 17 off and almost always lost ATS. The preseason stacks up the same way for the Colts. This line is going to look intriguing to some, but don't be fooled. Over the last three years, the Colts have lost 11 times in the preseason by a total of an unbelievable 162 points! That means on average their losses have been by over 15 points per game. So what signs show things being different this year? None, they went out and lost game one by 23 points. Need I more? This team takes a knee here, so I'm backing Washington.
