Taking The Points...

Outside of Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne getting injured during pre-game warmups, I can't think of any scenario in which the Seahawks beat the Colts.

Seneca Wallace is NOT a starting NFL QB. He's too short and inaccurate and still makes 3-4 boneheaded throws a game. I watched Seneca Wallace after catching Mark Sanchez and if I didn't know any better I would have thought Wallace was the rookie QB. All the Seneca fanboys need to let the dream die that he can be a viable starter and win consistently in the NFL.

I'm down on Housh - going into the season I had high hopes that he would be a bigger, faster version of Bobby Engram. He has underwhelmed so far, to the point that I dropped him from my FF roster. T.J. might play better when Hasselbeck returns, but what I saw from him before Matt's rib injury didn't really scream out that he would have a career season.

Julius Jones is running with conviction, but he isn't getting enough touches...and although Dwight Freeney may be out of Sunday's game, I don't see Jones getting a chance to tote the ball all that often as Seattle will be playing catch up. Indy proved against Miami that they can beat you with limited opportunities, the offense and Manning are that good. Seattle should try and hammer the ball with Julius Jones to keep Indy's offense off the field...but they have to score TDs or Manning is going to make them pay with a quick strike downfield. Seattle will abandon the run early, giving Indy too much time to score often on offense.

There is no way Seattle's defense can keep Indy out of the end zone, even with Tatupu back (which might not be the case). The Hawks just don't have the playmakers to stop the Colts.

Final Score: Colts 37, Seattle 13
