The Colts did everything I said they needed to do to win this hard hitting game against the Baltimore Ravens. They controlled time of possession, they stopped the run, and they forced 4 turnovers. The Colts advance to the AFC championship game and the Ravens prepare to go home after tough loss.
Keys for Ravens: Run the ball, Limit penalties, Limit turnovers, Get pass rush Keys for Colts: Stop the run, Force turnovers, Control time of possession The Ravens want to run the ball as much as possible and the Colts want to stop the run and force Joe Flacco to make plays. Although the Colts are the heavy favorites, don’t count out the Ravens. The Ravens are hungry and want revenge for the 17 to 15 loss to the Colts earlier in the season. Look forward to a classic playoff battle!
