Colts vs. Patriots: NFL experts make Week 9 picks

The Indianapolis Colts (3-4-1) and New England Patriots (4-4) are set for a Week 9 battle at Gillette Stadium.

As Vegas views the Patriots as strong favorites, here’s how the experts around the league see this matchup shaking out:

Over at Tallysight, 94% of the analysts are siding with the Patriots to take away a win at Gillette Stadium.

This isn’t all that surprising considering how poor the Colts offense has been playing. There were some flashes with Sam Ehlinger under center during his first-career start, but history hasn’t been kind to new starting quarterbacks going against Bill Belichick’s defense.

The likely outcome is that the Colts go on the road against the Patriots, a team they haven’t beaten in Foxborough since 2006.
