NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take New York. According to latest NFL trends, the Colts are 4-10 ATS the last 14 in preseason. The Colts were hoping that Ahmad Bradshaw, the former Giants star running back, would come and rejuvenate the running game. He's just coming off the PUP list and won't play Sunday night, but should ready for Game 3. The Giants get back defensive end Justin Tuck (back) and offensive lineman Justin Pugh, who didn't play last week in Pittsburgh. Eli Manning should see a few series after going just 2-of-5 last week for 73 yards. One of those completions went to Victor Cruz, who beat theSteelers' secondary for a 57-yard touchdown reception. The Giants are looking at several competitions on offense. One of them is at backup quarterback as David Carr is trying to hold off Curtis Painter and rookie Ryan Nassib. The Syracuse product may end up as the third quarterback which means Carr or Painter will be the odd man out. At running back, expect a little more from David Wilson and Andre Brown. The Colts allowed 374.2 yards per game on defense last year and were 29th against the run. That defense is still a work-in-progress. Expect the Giants' backup offense to work the Colts' backup defense and cover this game with ease.
