Over at Tallysight, 75% of the analysts have the Colts walking away with a victory. In terms of the 1.5-point spread, 77% of analysts believe the Colts will cover in Germany.
This is likely to shape up into a close matchup, especially considering the unpredictable nature of the overseas games during the last few seasons. The Patriots offense has struggled mightily while the Colts defense has had it’s own issues save the Week 9 performance against the Carolina Panthers.
The Colts have played the Patriots twice since Tom Brady left the organization, splitting those games in 2021 (win) and 2022 (loss). The Colts are a different team with Shane Steichen as the head coach, but it’s still never easy going against the Patriots.
It should make for an interesting battle in Germany when the two teams kickoff at 9:30 p.m. ET on Sunday morning.
