We've already gotten Dilfer's take on how the Jets' offense can propel them to victory, but Hoge noted the Colts' offense can draw upon the blueprint they used last year to beat the Jets in the AFC title game.
"This is not the well-oiled machine that we're used to watching from the Indianapolis Colts, with Peyton Manning being able to orchestrate this flawless offense," Hoge said. "There's a lot of new parts here."
Even so, Hoge insisted the X's and O's are there for the Colts to exploit.
"If you go back to that playoff game, the AFC Championship Game, they probably really exposed this Jets defense and went at it where you need to target," Hoge said. "They spread them out, and they attacked the middle of the field. They used tight ends and good wide receivers to attack linebackers and safeties.
"I would expect the Colts to use those kinds of matchups again, focus on attacking in the middle of the field, and make those linebackers play, make those safeties play."
