What to Know
The Indianapolis Colts are staying on the road on Sunday to face off against the Cleveland Browns at 4:25 p.m. ET Oct. 11 at FirstEnergy Stadium. Both of these red-hot teams will try to put the other on ice to keep their winning streaks alive.
The Colts were able to grind out a solid win over the Chicago Bears this past Sunday, winning 19-11. No one had a standout game offensively for Indianapolis, but they got one touchdown from TE Mo Alie-Cox.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed 13. K Rodrigo Blankenship delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.
Meanwhile, Cleveland had a touchdown and change to spare in a 49-38 victory over the Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday. WR Odell Beckham had a stellar game for the Browns as he punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to catching five passes for two TDs and 81 yards. One of the most memorable plays of the matchup was Beckham’s 50-yard touchdown rush down the right side of the field in the fourth quarter.
This next contest is expected to be close, with Indianapolis going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.
A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Indianapolis enters the game with only one rushing touchdown allowed, which is the best in the league. But Cleveland comes into the contest boasting the most rushing touchdowns in the NFL at eight. We’ll see if the Colts’ defense can keep the Browns’ running backs out of the end zone.
