This article may not be for those of you who say “never bet against Peyton Manning”, but before you decapitate me, let me have my final words.

Last week against the Houston Texans, Manning threw for just two touchdowns, completing 57.78% of his attempts. He ended the night with an 89.9 passer rating, his second lowest of this NFL betting online season.

Without his favorite targets Austin Collie and Dallas Clark on the field, Manning looked heavily to a few young receivers.

25-year-old tight end Jacob Tamme rose to the occasion, as he easily recorded the best game of his professional career, making 6 receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown. He was second on Indianapolis’ receiving chart, behind WR Pierre Garcon.

While Garcon and Tamme produced, veterans like Reggie Wayne and Anthony Gonzalez failed to do so. Gonzalez caught 4 passes for 55 yards this NFL expert pick weekend, while Wayne reached only 39 yards and one touchdown, recording four catches on 12 targets.

In the absence of Joseph Addai, 24-year-old running back Mike Hart performed extraordinarily well, gaining 7 yards per carry, attaining a career-high 84 yards.

Now, the issue for this NFL betting online Sunday is that Austin Collie, Dallas Clark Joseph Addai, and Mike Hart might also have to sit this one out.

Hart left last week’s game with a rolled ankle and is questionable for this Sunday. Even if Hart does make it back on to the field this NFL expert pick Sunday, it’s unlikely he will repeat last week’s productivity.

Despite having Peyton Manning under center, there are just too many injuries to this Colts squad for me to believe they will be able to consistently move the ball against Philadelphia this NFL betting online Sunday.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles: 30, Indianapolis Colts: 17

Messina Mention: Since Andy Ried’s arrival, the Eagles are 11-0 when returning from a bye week.

NFL Expert Pick: Philadelphia Eagles (-3).
