Experts share their picks for the Patriots Week 10 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, presented by SERVPRO.

Mike Reiss, ESPN:

Pick: Patriots 24, Colts 13

Patriots gewinnen! Thanks to former Patriot and current German broadcaster Markus Kuhn for the translation. A pro-Patriots crowd is expected and that might be just what the team needs to generate some good vibes … and better on-field performance.

Ali Bhanpuri, NFL.com: Colts 20, Patriots 17

Brooke Cersosimo, NFL.com: Colts 21, Patriots 19

Dan Parr, NFL.com: Colts 22, Patriots 20

Gennaro Filice, NFL.com: Colts 24, Patriots 21

Tom Blair, NFL.com: Colts 26, Patriots 20

Why Brooke is taking the Colts: Not much is going right for the Patriots, who are navigating a tempestuous week. Their 2-7 record is tied for Bill Belichick's worst through nine games in his career as a head coach. Mac Jones is having his worst season behind a permeable offensive line. Plus, the defense ranks in the bottom third of the league in most categories. None of this bodes well for New England. However, there aren't a ton of things going right for Indianapolis, either. The Colts feature the seventh-best scoring offense but have struggled to win; if not for Kenny Moore's pair of pick-sixes last week, it's quite possible Indy is sitting with three wins. Gardner Minshew must find a way to protect the ball and get it into the hands of his stud running backs and big-bodied wideout Michael Pittman Jr. This game feels entirely unpredictable, and the fact that it's being played in Frankfurt only adds to the madness, but I'm leaning toward the Colts.

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports:

Pick: Colts 20, Patriots 14

The Patriots are reeling and there is talk Bill Belichick could be in trouble. I don't buy it, but that's not a good thing to have hanging over this team. The Colts beat the Panthers last week, thanks to their defense with two touchdowns off picks. The offense didn't do much, but the Patriots don't do much on offense either. This will be a low-scoring game won by the Colts.

Mike Florio: Colts 23, Patriots 17

Chris Simms: Colts 23, Patriots 20

Paul Perillo, Patriots.com:

Pick: Patriots 20, Colts 17

Patriots come back from Germany with a win thanks to some takeaways from the defense.

Mike Dussault, Patriots.com:

Pick: Patriots 23, Colts 17

The international change of scenery does a bunch of good for the Patriots, as they pull out a much needed win in Germany thanks to continued ascendance from Rhamondre Stevenson.

Evan Lazar, Patriots.com:

Pick: Patriots 27, Colts 24

I've been leaning Colts all week because they've been the better team this season. But, after a shaky week back home, the vibes are good for the Patriots now that they're in Germany, and they should have the crowd on their side. I think the Patriots use this trip to feel good about themselves heading into the bye week.
