Indianapolis Colts Team Defense at Buffalo Bills
Coming off one of their best defensive efforts, the Colts face the Bills who are capable of exploiting Indy’s lack of secondary. The Bills have playmakers at every position with the exception of running back, which is Indy’s strength. It’s a shame because the Colts have finished in the top 10 team defenses five times. Unfortunately, even good defenses need to be benched too.
Washington Football Team Defense at Carolina Panthers
It will be interesting to see how the Panthers offense changes under this latest stint with Cam Newton. Will Christian McCaffery keep getting in the ball in the red zone?
