THE TEAM NEWS

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

  • Indianapolis face an uphill task to force their way into play-off contention after they lost a third straight game against Tampa Bay and will now need to win-out to give themselves a chance of making the postseason.
  • The Colts will be without veteran kicker Adam Vinatieri for the rest of the year after he was scheduled to undergo knee surgery and he will be absent for his first game since the 2009 season.
  • Joining Vinatieri on injured reserve is wide receiver Parris Campbell but in better news for the Colts, fellow wideout T.Y. Hilton is trending towards suiting up this week and will take to the field if he can overcome a niggly calf injury.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

  • New Orleans played their part in a brilliant contest last week but ultimately suffered late heartache against San Francisco which will give the Saints some food for thought ahead of the post-season.
  • Saints tight end Jared Cook suffered a concussion in the process of scoring his second touchdown of the game last week and is doubtful for this game despite logging a limited practice at the start of the week.
  • The Saints were without six players to begin the week but with the long turnaround, they will be hopeful of getting some of those back in practice before this contest on Monday Night Football.

THE PREDICTION

New Orleans will have to pick themselves up after losing a breath-taking contest against San Francisco last week. They looked set for the win having taken the lead late in the game but the 49ers won it as time expired although that will not deter them here as they look to put that loss behind them quickly. The Colts will be desperate for the win to remain in the play-off picture but they have lacked quality of late and the Saints should be too good for them.
