Make no doubt about it, this Carolina Panthers offense can put up points for sure. Even when QB Cam Newton has a bad day throwing 4 interceptions he still manages 2 rushing touchdowns and 1 passing against the Lions last week. They put up 35 points total, Newton threw for 280 yards and rushed for 37 more. RB Deangelo Williams had 10 rushes for 73 yards, and Jonathan Stewart had 8 for 22 and 6 receptions 87 yards. WR Steve Smith had 5 catches for 41 yards a TD, bringing his total yardage to 992 and 5 TD’s on the year.
Carolina’s defense totally let their team down getting trampled for 49 points against Detroit. They allowed an astronomical 495 total yards, 326 passing, and 169 rushing. Linebacker James Anderson looked like he showed up to play making 10 tackles and an interception. SS Charles Godfrey also had 8 tackles and a pick, while rookie DE Thomas Keiser had a good game getting 5 tackles and 2 sacks.
The winless Indianapolis Colts are averaging a pathetic 13.1 points per a game this year. QB Curtis Painter who prior to last weeks loss to the Jaguars had not thrown a TD pass in three straight games. After throwing 2 interceptions Painter was benched for journeyman QB Dan Orlovsky who went 7/10 for 67 yards., he threw an interception that was actually considered a lost fumble. Donald Brown carried the rock 14 times for 53 yards, and TE Jacob Tamme led the team in receiving with 6 catches for 75 yards.
The Colts defense didn’t play the ass too badly giving up only 110 passing yards, however were chewed up on the ground for 141 rushing. DE’s Tyler Brayton and Rasheed Mathis both had a sack, and CB Jerraud Powers had the teams lone interception.
Betting Prediction: The Carolina Panthers can put up big points averaging just over 22 points per game, while the Indianapolis Colts are at a extremely low 13 points per game. Looks like the Colts may still be winless after this weekends game against the Panthers. Take Carolina against the spread as they should look really good against a possibly Dan Orvlosky led Colts.
