It is playoff time for the New England Patriots as they ready themselves for their Divisional Round matchup against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night.
Glenn Ordway, Fred Smerlas, and Steve DeOssie made their picks for the game on New England Tailgate.
“Belichick is great at this, he has coached 24 or more of these playoff games than Chuck Pagano has,” Ordway said. “He’s great at taking away what you do best. He takes away [T.Y.] Hilton. He makes it a very competitive game. And the Patriots win and they cover.”
Ordway was not the only one who had a feeling of optimism about the Patriots chances to win.
“The Patriots have very little defense to speak of. The Colts have very little defense to speak of,” DeOssie said. “Both these teams have thrived on forcing turnovers. In this scenario, neither of these teams have a habit of turning the ball over all that much. I think the Colts find a way to keep it close. I think the Patriots win this game, but I think the Colts will cover.”
