The Colts 2015 home slate begins with a Monday Night Football contest against the New York Jets.
The New York Jets are coming off their most lopsided victory since October 2012. They hammered the Cleveland Browns 31-10 in their season opener last Sunday, giving some hope to those praying Gang Green can get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
The Indianapolis Colts were a trendy pick to represent the AFC in Super Bowl 50, but barely looked like a fringe playoff team in their season-opening loss to the Buffalo Bills. They’ll try to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole when they host the New York Jets on Monday Night Football.
The Jets enter this game with some surprising momentum after they throttled the Cleveland Browns in Week 1. Rex Ryan might have taken his talents upstate to Buffalo, but the Jets are still a ground-and-pound team under new head coach Todd Bowles. Their blueprint for success hasn’t changed: use an aggressive defense and ball-control offense to wear down their opponents for 60 minutes. It worked to near-perfection against the Browns, as they forced five turnovers, had three sacks, didn’t allow a single touchdown in the red zone and rushed for 154 yards in the convincing 31-10 win.
Andrew Luck has faced the Jets just once in his career and it’s a game he probably would like to forget. The Colts were blown out at the Meadowlands in Week 6 of 2012, losing 35-9 to a Jets team that would finish with double-digit losses that year. Luck completed just 50 percent of his passes and was picked off twice in one of his worst performances. Granted, he was a rookie with just four games under his belt, but his passer rating of 51.3 was the third-worst he’s ever posted in a game.
The Jets haven’t defeated an eventual playoff team on the road since beating the Steelers 22-17 in December 2010. And since then, in those 13 road games they’ve played against teams that finished above .500, they’ve been outscored by an average margin of 31-16. Nine of those 13 affairs were lost by at least two scores.
