Colts at Redskins Final NFL Betting Analysis:

Luck played great, but Indianapolis only rushed for 75 yards in the 23-34 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Indy can’t count on Luck to provide fireworks every time they step onto the field. Even when Luck plays well, the Colts can lose.If you’re a Colts fan, you’re wondering how the heck your team will stop Washington’s offense. With Smith at quarterback, Washington can beat you so many ways. He throws to every possible target and he doesn’t turn the ball over. Adrian Peterson sure looked like he’s got some football left after demolishing Arizona’s defense.The Colts allowed 101 rushing yards to the Bengals.  Washington should easily eclipse that. This is a different Washington team from last season while the Colts haven’t improved enough on either offense or defense.Washington dominates Indy.
