Over at Tallysight, 66% of the expert picks are siding with the Commanders to take the win.

Considering the dysfunction the Colts offense has shown throughout the season, it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise that analysts are going with the Commanders. It’s always difficult to choose a quarterback to win his first career NFL start.

The Colts have shown a lot of confidence in Ehlinger, though, both from a playing and leadership standpoint.

We’ll see just how much of an impact he can make on Sunday and if anything, it should make the game intriguing enough to watch compared to the majority of the first half of the season.
