NFL Week 5 may have been the craziest week yet. Games came down to the wire, there were more upsets and, of course, the injuries around the league continued. Putting a cap on this week, the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens face off tonight on Monday Night Football. While the Ravens are the NFL betting favorites, it’s clear that doesn’t mean much this season.

The Colts finally got their first win last week, getting that monkey off their back. Injuries continue to be the story of this team, with the offensive line getting beat up, the receiving corps losing one of their only weapons and Carson Wentz somehow spraining both ankles on the same play. Wentz has had the time to heal and he’s mostly better, but that offensive line is porous enough that he will be taking more hits tonight. Defensively, the Colts have plenty of playmakers, but the offense needs to put them in more favorable positions as well.
The Ravens have been solid this season, though they have had their fair share of injuries as well. Aside from the season-ending injuries early in the season, offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley will be out tonight. This isn’t the elite offensive line of years past, so Lamar Jackson must ensure he doesn’t take big hits against this Colts defense. But if they can give Jackson some time, he is proving more and more that he can be a capable passer in this league, especially with some of the downfield weapons at his disposal. Defensively, the Ravens haven’t been amazing and they need to show more. However, they may not have much more to give.
