Indy may have lost by over 20 in their last game against the Steelers, but that game was a lot closer than the score suggests. Something called “Scott Tolzien” was stopped twice on the goal line and was picked off twice in awful scenarios. A very critical ingredient in the Colts’ winning formula was missing that Thanksgiving evening but it looks like they will be whole again this coming Monday when they take on the Jets at MetLife Stadium.
- Andrew Luck (concussion) is expected to play.
- The Colts are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 Monday Night games.
- The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Colts’ last 8 games on the road against teams with losing records.
The Colts are quickly losing sight of a playoff spot and a loss to the 3-8 Jets this week could be the final dagger in their postseason hopes. Although they sit just one game back of the Houston Texans, the division leaders, the 6-6 Titans are trending way up and Indy’s schedule doesn’t get any easier with three of their five remaining games to be played on the road. Bovada agrees with that analysis and has pegged Indianapolis with +400 odds to win the AFC South.
Their game on Monday is step No. 1 and with everything considered, it really comes down to how well Andrew Luck – and his offensive line – perform. In losses this year, Luck has a quarterback rating of 88.3 and has been sacked a total of 22 times. In wins? That rating shoots up to 100.1 and he’s gone down nine fewer times.
The Jets have not been especially effective against the pass this season are tied for the second-lowest sack total in the NFL and are near the bottom of the list in quarterback hurries.
Luck has proved time and time again that when he gets time to throw the ball, he tears up defenses. If an improving Colts’ D can keep Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets sluggish offense at bay, the President of the Andrew Luck Book Club should be able to easily lead his team to a win and cover in the Meadowlands Monday evening.
