Taylor leads the league in rushing yards (1,348) and rushing TDs (16) and is averaging 5.7 yards per carry (3.7 after contact).
Why the Patriots can cover

How to make Patriots vs. Colts picks
The model is leaning Under on the point total, with the model suggesting neither quarterback will reach 225 passing yards. It also says one side of the spread has all the value. You can only get the model’s Colts vs. Patriots picks at SportsLine.
Mac Jones vs. Colts defense
Mac Jones’ arm should be rested. The rookie quarterback has thrown just 3 passes in the month of December. The Patriots’ punishing ground attack and a friendly passing scheme have helped make Jones the odds-on favorite to win Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Patriots weapons vs. Colts defensive backs
An underappreciated aspect of the Patriots’ offense is their receivers catch EVERYTHING. Of New England’s 386 non-spike targets, Patriots skill-position players have caught 72.3% of them. New England’s drop rate (2.9%) is second to only the Green Bay Packers. Certainly, it helps that Jones throws a catchable ball.
Patriots offensive line vs. Colts defensive front
New England’s line is dependable but not spectacular. Not elite, but also not a liability. In other words, they’re right in line with how they’re compensated. The Patriots have the 10th-highest-paid line in football and probably are somewhere between 10th and 15th in performance.
Carson Wentz vs. Patriots defense
Among the many benefits of the Colts’ punishing ground game is they don’t ask Carson Wentz to do all that much. The Colts’ 32.7 passing attempts per game are 12th-fewest in football. Wentz has done an excellent job of protecting the football (his interception rate is just 1.2%), a big reason why his QBR is a more-than-solid 58.2.
Colts weapons vs. Patriots defensive backs
Taylor has a real chance to be the first running back in NFL history to eclipse 1,700 yards, score 20 touchdowns, and average at least 5.5 yards per carry in the same year. If he can, it would be one of the most productive seasons by a ball carrier ever and would deserve real MVP consideration.
Colts offensive line vs. Patriots front seven
Taylor owes his offensive line a bunch of Rolexes for Christmas. He’s been incredible, but so have they. The Colts’ starting five — Eric Fisher, Quenton Nelson, Danny Pinter, Mark Glowinski, and Braden Smith — have paved the way for the NFL’s most efficient running attack. Pick a stat and Indy’s O-line screams elite.
New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts Predictions
The Patriots are coming off a bye, which is about the only thing which could cool them off lately. Even a frigid, blustery, windy and snowy evening in Buffalo on Monday night in Week 13 couldn’t ice the Pats, who powered through the elements for a 14-10 win against the Bills in a key AFC East Division battle.
New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts Betting Conclusion
Both of these teams are super rested, as both enter off a bye. The Patriots enter Week 15 in a three- way tie at 9-4, holding tiebreakers with the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans, but they obviously need to keep their foot on the pedal.
Pro Football Network: Patriots 26, Colts 23
Ben Rolfe writes: “This is a clash of two of the best teams in the AFC. The Colts have won seven of their last 10, while the Patriots have won seven straight. The key will be how the Patriots play the Colts’ run game.
Sportsnaut: Patriots 23, Colts 20
The site predicts a close game between the Patriots and Colts in their NFL Week 15 game in Indianapolis.
Mike Reiss, ESPN
Bold prediction: The Patriots will reference seemingly innocent remarks by Colts linebacker Bobby Okereke and quarterback Carson Wentz as motivational fuel if they come away with a win.
Mike Wells, ESPN
What to watch for: This one will be all about Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s defense vs. Colts coach Frank Reich’s offense. The Patriots lead the NFL in points allowed per game (15.4) and are third in yards allowed per game (310.0). They haven’t given up more than 13 points in a game over their past five contests (7.2 per game).
Gregg Rosenthal, NFL.com
In a battle between one of the league’s hottest defenses (New England) and hottest offenses (Indianapolis), I’d typically lean offense. The Patriots’ defensive front can be moved in the running game and the Colts can match power with power.
Pete Prisco, CBS Sports
This is a huge game for both teams and both are coming off the bye, so there is no advantage. The Patriots were dominant in the wind last game against the Bills with their run game. They will try and use that again here to key the offense, but it won’t be nearly as successful. The Colts will do the same with Jonathan Taylor.
Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk
The Patriots continue to roll, and they continue to relish any win they can get over the team that sparked #Deflategate.
Michael David Smith, Pro Football Talk
I was surprised to see the Colts are favored in this one. I like Bill Belichick’s defense to shut down Carson Wentz and win a low-scoring game.
Paul Perillo, Patriots.com
Refreshed and ready coming off the bye, Patriots keep the momentum going with tough road win in Indy.

Cody Manning: Colts 24, Patriots 20
It’s a new era of the rivalry between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots because of the new quarterbacks that are leading these franchises. But this matchup has the feel of the early 2000s because of the playoff implications that this game will have after the final result.
John Alfieri: Patriots 24, Colts 23
I have been torn on this matchup all week. The Patriots have not been tested on offense or defense often this season and the Colts provide a solid balance of both.
Nick Melillo: Colts 31, Patriots 24
With this being a do-or-die game for the Colts’ playoff hopes this will be a must-watch game for any football fan. At home against a top-rated team most of the fanbase hates, what more could you ask for. The Patriots and Colts have made the game plan for victory very clear for this game.
