What the experts think about the Giants Week 16 matchup
The New York Giants look to stay hot on Sunday, when head to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana to take on the Colts at 1 p.m. EST. Let’s take a look around the Internet to see what the experts are predicting for Big Blue’s Sunday afternoon matchup.
Colts: Stephen White, Christian D’Andrea, Gil Arcia, Joe McAtee, Geoff Schwartz, Ryan Van Bibber, Adam Stites, Charles McDonald
Colts: Dan Graziano, Mina Kimes, Matt Bowen, Louis Riddick, Seth Wickersham, Molly Qerim, Mike Clay, Kevin Seifert, Trey Wingo

This could get gnarly awfully fast. The Giants played like dog-, er, poorly against Houston last week in front of their home crowd, despite the fact that they were still in the running for a playoff spot. The Coltsdid the exact opposite, imposing their will at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball against Dallas. The offensive line kept Andrew Luck’s royal blue jersey nice and mint while plowing holes through a talented Cowboys front seven en route to 178 yards rushing. If Odell Beckham Jr. is absent again, Big Blue will be in 0-17 trouble again. The Colts didn’t bottle up Ezekiel Elliott last week, but they performed viably enough to not let an elite RB1 beat them by making stops late in drives. A repeat job is in order with the baddest rookie running back in the league coming to town.

The Colts have a good chance to get into the postseason and have won two straight. The defense has made big strides. The Giants are playing out the string and looked awful last week. The Colts will have an easy time of it in this one.
