Bold Predictions: Colts video station Bengals Youth Malik Hooker Jersey , NFL week one matchup Earlier this week I made some bold predictions for the season, but today I am going to take a stab at a few that are specific to the looming season opener. With the Cincinnati Bengals heading to town, the Colts remain an unknown. What can they be? The possibilities are wide and no one is certain what this group is capable of yet. With that in mind, letís jump into some of these predictions.The Coltsí defense will have more sacks than the Bengalsí defensePhoto by Stacy Revere/Getty ImagesOkay, so this one might be bold to the point of lunacy, but hear me out. The Colts know that they are up against a very good defensive line. They also are facing a less than stellar group of linebackers, and have a strong group of tight ends who will likely feast on the middle of the field, creating opportunity for quick passes.On the flip side, we havenít seen this defense get totally cut loose yet in the preseason, but we have seen that the Coltsí defensive line is capable, and they have gotten to quarterbacks throughout the preseason. Whatever improvements they have made, the Bengalsí offensive line is a weakness. Expect the Colts to get after it http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-rigoberto-sanchez-jersey , and I think weíll see them prove effective at getting to Dalton.Malik Hooker will get his first pick of the seasonPhoto by Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesWhen he is under pressure, Andy Dalton starts making mistakes. With a speedy group of Colts along the defensive line, this is a group that can get into the backfield, and theyíll be facing an offensive line that is ill equipped to stop them. Because of this, Dalton is likely going to get forced into making some throws he is uncomfortable with. Thatís where Hooker comes into the equation. Hooker is a bona fide play maker and one who steps up when quarterbacks start making risky throws. He has a deceptive range, and can close on the ball in a hurry, making him a danger to pick off anything left hanging too long. I think he gets one away from Dalton and gets himself off to a strong start in 2018.Jordan Wilkins will go for over 100 yards rushingPhoto by Otto Greule Jr/Getty ImagesLast year the Colts faced the Bengals armed with a dreadful coaching staff, an atrocious offensive line, and a backup quarterback who held the ball too long. Their starting running back was Frank Gore. This may be an unpopular opinion among people around here, but Frank Gore had lost a significant step over the last season and a half. While his vision was as good as it ever had been and he remained a valuable locker room guy and pass blocker, he had absolutely no burst, especially by week 8 Matthias Farley Jersey , when he faced the Bengals. Against largely the same group of defenders the Colts will face on Sunday, Gore put up 82 yards on 16 carries. With nothing else on the offense working, except Jacoby Brissett passing the ball to Jack Doyle, this defense still couldnít stop the run effectively. Sunday, weíll have Quenton Nelson starting at left guard, instead of Jeremy Vujnovich, who started in their last game against the Bengals. While Nelson will have some struggles against a player as good as Geno Atkins, heíll win sometimes too. That means it is likely that the Colts are going to run the ball, and do so effectively. With Wilkins widely expected to get the bulk of the carries as Marlon Mack is recovering, it isnít inconceivable that he could have a 100+ yard performance. I think the Colts will work to stay balanced and keep this defense honest. Andrew Luck commands some respect form defenses, so they canít sell out to stop the run. That will show and will open up the door for Wilkins to shine.Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron will combine for 2 touchdowns and 160 yards of offensePhoto by Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesThe weakest spot in this Bengals defense is at the linebacker position, as you would know if you read the opponent scouting report. That means you should expect to see the tight ends and running backs getting a lot of work. It doesnít hurt that with the addition of Eric Ebron in the offseason Authentic Nate Hairston Jersey , tight end is one of the strongest position groups on the Coltsí roster. Jack Doyle had his best game of the season against Cincinnati last year, catching 12 of 14 targets for 121 yards and a touchdown. That was on a team that wasnít missing starting linebacker Vontaze Burfict. This Bengals defense is even more vulnerable in the middle due to that suspension. I expect Frank Reich to use a heavy dose of short and medium passes over the middle of the field to help negate the pass rush and attack the weakest spot of the defense. This should be a very good start to the season for the Coltsí starting tight ends.Andrew Luck will make one play that will make every Colts fan grin from ear-to-earPhoto by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesThis isnít really a bold prediction, it is nearly a certainty. However, when that moment comes that Luck does one of those characteristic Andrew Luck things, we can truly appreciate as a fan base how great it is to have him back. The Indianapolis Colts will again be without key starters as they face off against the Jets in the Meadowlands.With Denzelle Good sitting out, Braden Smith will get a second consecutive start at right tackle. Losing Margus Hunt and Denico Autry means that two of starters on the defensive line will have to be replaced. The duo happens to be the strongest interior pass rushers on the team at this point as well. T.Y. Hiltonís absence means continued pressure on a young group of receivers. Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers will need to keep the chains moving and limits big play mistakes. Rogers has shown signs of taking a step forward with Hilton out but drops in the end zone and his big drop on a perfectly thrown deep pass against the Patriots will encourage Chris Ballard to look for his replacement. Jack Doyle sitting out another game means more pressure on Eric Ebron, who has done well. Ebron was listed with numerous injuries throughout the week so it is possible the Erik Swoope will agains be asked to play a bigger role in the offense. With Matthias Farley placed on injured reserve and Clayton Geathers out of the lineup, it likely means that free agent addition Mike Mitchell is asked to start and play considerable defensive reps. The 10-year veteran is certainly in a good position to pick things up quickly in Matt Eberflusí scheme, but he could have some rust to knock off after spending time away from an NFL roster.
