Playbook picks: Two experts expect Pats to drop Colts

As usual when these teams meet, the game everyone is looking forward to this Sunday occurs at Indianapolis where the Colts and Patriots resume their heated rivalry. The Colts may be the lone remaining unbeaten in the AFC, but two of our three NFL Network Playbook analysts (Sterling Sharpe and Joe Theismann) predict the Patriots will hand them their first loss of the year.

Not only is Brian Baldinger alone in thinking that Indianapolis will move to 9-0, he is also alone in his belief that the reeling Redskins will give the Broncos their third consecutive loss.

In the AFC’s other marquee battle, it is Theismann standing on his own picking the Bengals, while Baldinger and Sharpe both like the Steelers.
