Week 16 NFL Spreads: Jets vs. Colts


For the second time in three years the cranky old 1974 Dolphins are sweating bullets. Mercury Morris and his boys had part of their legacy chipped away when the 2007 Patriots went 16-0 in the regular season (before faltering in the Super Bowl). Now, less than two years later, the Colts are taking dead aim.


Time: Sunday 4:05 ET
Venue: Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis
MoneyLine: Jets +200 (-110) / Colts -240 (-110)
Spread: Colts -7 (-110)
Over/Under: 40.5

And the Colts are going for it. Yes, we all know what they’re saying and we all know about resting injured players and we all know it’s the Super Bowl they’re really after and we all know yada yada yada . . .

But they’re going for it. 14-0 has been done and 16-0 has been done and 18-0 has been done. But 19-0 has never been done, and the chance to put that cherry on top of the sundae is just too much to resist.

Every player, coach and general manager will vow to take things one game at a time, but the Colts are 14-0 with five to go, and you can bet that Peyton Manning and everyone connected with the franchise has considered what it would mean to be the first team to run table and finish 19-0.Sports Betting at Sportsbook.com

First up is the Jets, who most of this season have talked a better game than they have played. Rex Ryan’s boys are loose cannons because they love to blitz and collapse the pocket, and Manning’s quick release and solid offensive line have kept the presumptive MVP on his feet for 14 straight games. But the Jets will try to get at Manning . . . what have they got to lose?

Whatever air was left in the Jets’ balloon escaped in that unexplainable loss to Atlanta in the Meadowlands last Sunday, and somehow they need to suck it up and figure out a way to hang with the Colts behind a skittish rookie quarterback who is averaging 2 interceptions a game over his last 5 starts.

Statistically the Jets have the best defense in pro football – they give up only 263 yards and 15.8 points a game. But Mark Sanchez’s erratic play has produced way too many turnovers and shortened the field for opponents. Season-ending injuries to Kris Jenkins and Leon Washington have also taken a toll.

Sanchez will be going up against a small-but-fast Colts defense that gives up a lot of yards (338 a game) but stiffens in the red zone (5th in the league in points allowed). And when the defense struggles, as it did against Jacksonville, New England and Houston this season, Indy just trots out the ultimate eraser – Manning.

But make no mistake – the Colts are going for it. And even though Indy refuses to look ahead, we will. A likely victory over the Jets moves the Colts to 15-0, and the only thing standing in the way of a perfect regular season are the Bills and possible howling winds in Buffalo in Week 17.

  1. The Jets have the number one overall defense and the number one ranked rushing offense, yet they are still just 7-7 and one loss away from be eliminated from playoff contention.

    This just goes to show you how much damage a rookie QB can do as he goes through the growing pains of transitioning to the NFL.
