Indianapolis Colts need their starting quarterback to be on the field. When he is not, they are a completely different team. Andrew Luck is what gets this squad going, he is the one that is winning all the games for Indy. They are hoping that he will be available on Monday Night against the Jets.
This is a big game for the Colts as they are still trailing the Texans in their division. The loss to the Steelers wasn’t really helpful to this team and their postseason efforts. Tolzien was one the field instead of Luck and the difference was pretty noticeable.
Luckily for them, they are going up against the New York Jets, a squad that has nothing to play for in December. They are not going to make the postseason, and this will be another year to forget for the Jets’ fans. Fitzpatrick is likely playing his last games as a Jet. They didn’t give him a major deal that he wanted, and that is turning out to be a good decision as Fitz is likely on his way out.
Will he spoil Colts’ Playoff chances before he leaves the Big Apple? Well, if Andrew Luck is playing, that probably won’t be the case. If he doesn’t, Fitz and Jets have a great shot at winning this game.
We are going to assume that Luck is on the field on Monday. With that being the case, we are going to pick Indy to win this one 27:19.
