Tough game to call Dan Leberfeld

Indianapolis – The Jets-Colts match-up is quite intriguing.

You can make a strong argument for each team winning this game.

The Jets are better in the trenches. They have superior lines on both sides of the ball.

The Jets should have little problem running the ball behind a veteran line coming off a strong opener, facing a Colts defensive line with two rookie starters. Even if Chris Ivory can’t play, the Jets should be able to run the ball tonight.

The Colts have the better quarterback. Also, the Jets had some issues last week covering the Cleveland Browns’ speedy, quick-twitch receivers – Travis Benjamin, Taylor Gabriel and Andrew Hawkins.

The Colts have a couple of guys like that in T.Y. Hilton and Phillip Dorsett, who could give the Jets fits.

Also, the Jets did an average job of covering the Browns’ tight ends Jim Dray and Gary Barnidge, so that might not bode well for them dealing with the Colts’ dynamic duo of Coby Fleener and Duane Allen.

And the Colts could have coverage issues of their own, with three corners, Darius Butler, Greg Toler and D’Joun Smith, out of the lineup.

This game truly is a toss-up.
