Colts 34, Ravens 20

I have a VERY bad feeling that Peyton Manning will find a way to score on the Colts’ first 3 drives of the game. Seriously, VERY bad feeling. That being said-I bet this will be a 17-10 game at the half; and will be a 27-20 game in the 4th quarter. However, I will take Peyton Manning over Joe Flacco. With NO offense to Joe, Peyton Manning is a Hall of Famer.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say……
