The Patriots (9-4) are the hottest team in football as they are in riding a seven-game win streak that has showed off their versatility. They have won games by airing it out, dominating on the ground and letting their defense put in the work. Their Last win came against the Bills on a very windy and cold Monday night matchup that saw the Pats come out on top with a 14-10 win. Mac Jones threw the ball just three times in the win, while running backs Damien Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden combined for 217 on 38 carries. 

New England was on their bye week in week 14, but are not worried the layoff will halt their momentum. "Let's get back to work," linebacker Matthew Judon told the media this week, "We got our bodies back right, our minds are still in it. All of us came back prepared." 

The Colts (7-6) are also coming off their bye week and had the good fortune of facing the Texans before their week off. After taking a tough 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers in week 12, they bounced right back and dominated the Texans in week 13 with a 31-0 victory. Carson Wentz was sharp in the win, completing 16-of-his-22 passes, while Jonathon Taylor continued his incredible year. The running back racked up 143 yards and two touchdowns in Houston. Despite his week off, Taylor still leads the NFL by over 300 rushing yards.

Both the Pats' and Colts' offense will have to be extra cautious with the football this week. Indy is the number one team in the NFL when it comes to forcing turnovers with 13, while New England is not far behind. The Pats are tied for third with 10.

The Colts are 1.5-point favorites against the Patriots. The over/under is 46.
