    Week 8's Game of the Week edition gives us a matchup between the 4-3 Indianapolis Colts traveling to the 5-1 Carolina Panthers.

    The Indianapolis Colts (Mogriffjr), after a rough 1-3 start to the season, have reeled off 3 straight wins, averaging almost 30 points per game in the process. Andrew Luck seems to be hitting his stride, throwing 8 TDs and 3 INTs in the 3-game stretch. The passing game has been the Colts' bread and butter as the Colts boast the #1 passing attack, as well as the #1 offense, in the league.

    Indianapolis' defense, however, hasn't had nearly the same success as the offense. The Colts' defense is 21st in passing yards allowed and dead last in rushing yards allowed.

    The Carolina Panthers (Studley2011) find themselves with a 2-game lead in the division already at a 5-1 record. The Panthers can attribute most of their success to their offense, boasting the #3 scoring offense at 29.8 points per game. Coach Stud has leaned on his rushing attack, averaging 129 rushing yards per game, good for 4th in the league.

    The defense has leaned on its pass defense, only allowing 186 passing yards per game, 7th in the league. Carolina's defense has forced opposing QBs into 14 picks, with Charles Tillman and Tre Boston leading the way with 3 INTs apiece.

    Can Coach Stud's defense keep the top passing attack in check? Will Coach Mo's defense figure out a way to contain the Panthers' rushing attack? You'll have to tune in to find out!
