Why wouldn't he? Will Indy suddenly change their mode of attack and abandon the pass? Will Edgerrin James run for 200 yards and score three touchdowns? Seattle, St. Louis, Arizona and San Francisco all have average offensive attacks and Indy has a poor defense; why wouldn't these matches turn into the same "track meets" that occured this year versus the NFC North?

I think you mean the AFC North (Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati) I've already pointed out that the numbers could be somewhat subdued against Baltimore and Pittsburgh. But Manning will light up the Browns and Bengals defense.
