Pick: Patriots 30, Colts 21
Thursday night meetings tend to favor the home team simply because they enjoy the benefit of not having to travel on a short turnaround week. The Colts could very easily be undefeated the way they've played this season, but New England's offense is finding its groove. Even if TE Rob Gronkowski doesn't suit up, the O will produce and the D will do its job against Andrew Luck and a Colts offense that will miss T.Y. Hilton.
