The Indianapolis Colts (4-5-1) welcome the Philadelphia Eagles (8-1) over to the Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday for a Week 11 matchup. The Indianapolis Colts are in second place in AFC South after collecting four wins from ten games so far in the regular season, while eight wins in nine matches leaves Philadelphia Eagles first in the NFC East. It’s now getting toward that time of the year when every match counts. For the Indianapolis Colts and the Philadelphia Eagles, a victory here could prove to be a game-changer in their respective campaigns.
Indianapolis Colts Form
The Indianapolis Colts took a 20-25 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders in their most recent outing, leaving them 4-5-1 from their last ten matches.
The Indianapolis Colts’ offense has been abysmal all season. It has put up just 15.7 points per game and they saw no improvement in the last five matches, which produced an average of 17.6 points. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The hosts have given up 21.8 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 20.3 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
This year, the Indianapolis Colts had been tipped to go far into the playoffs. However, ten matches into the current regular season, the hosts are only 4-5 and won’t be around when January football gets underway unless, of course, they can turn things around quickly.
Philadelphia Eagles Form
The Philadelphia Eagles hope to get back on track after suffering a setback last week, going down 21-32 against the Washington Commanders. Form has looked good, though, with four wins in five matches, while their overall record from the past 10 games says 8-2.
The offense has continued to torment opposing defenses consistently, averaging 26.2 points in the last five matches. This leaves the Philadelphia Eagles’ tally for the season at 27.3 points overall. The defense, on the other hand, hasn’t been as effective in putting the brakes on opposing offenses of late. In the past five outings, 19.2 points have been lost on average. This is more than the away team usually gives up, having allowed a decent 18.6 points per game this season.
In 2021, the Philadelphia Eagles came home in second place in the NFC East standings after going 9-9 across all games. The visitors naturally hope to go even better this season. However, like every other team in the NFL, sealing a spot in the playoffs during this regular season is the first and foremost priority for now.
