The Indianapolis Colts head to the Meadowlands to take on the New York Jets as we close out week 13 with some Monday Night Football.
The Indianapolis Colts fell to 5-6 after a 28-7 home defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thanksgiving night. With Andrew Luck out with a concussion, the reins were handed over to Scott Tolzien for the night, who completed 22 of his 36 pass attempts for a touchdown and a pair of interceptions while being sacked 3 times on the night. Jordan Todman racked up a team-high 37 yards on 3 carries, while it was Frank Gore who saw the bulk of the workload with his 15 carries amounting to just 28 yards. T.Y. Hilton led the Colts with 54 yards receiving on 3 catches while Donte Moncrief pulled in a team-leading 6 balls for 45 yards and the Colts’ lone touchdown on the night. Defensively, there wasn’t a whole lot to write home about, as the Colts failed to record a sack or interception of Steelers pivot Ben Roethlisberger while letting Pittsburgh tally up 369 yards of total offense.

The New York Jets came so very close to vanquishing the rival New England Patriots, but gave up a late touchdown before falling 22-17 to slide to 3-8 on the year. Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 32 passes for 269 yards and a pair of touchdowns while being sacked just once on the day. Bilal Powell led the Jets on the ground with 36 yards on 8 carries while Matt Forte had a team-high 13 carries, which he turned into just 27 yards. Quincy Enunwa racked up his first 100-yard game of the season, collecting 109 yards and a touchdown on 5 catches while Brnadon Marshall pulled in a team-high 6 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown of his own. Defensively, the Jets held the Pats in check for the majority of the game on the scoreboard, but New York still allowed 377 yards of total offense to the Pats while failing to sack or pick off Tom Brady a single time in the loss.
Indianapolis is 23-7 ATS in their last 30 games against a team with a losing record and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 Monday nighters while the over is 21-8 in their last 29 road games. New York is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games against a team with a losing road record and 10-1-2 ATS in their last 13 games in the month of December while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 Monday nighters. Indianapolis is 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams in New York.
New York always plays New England well despite their record so I’m not reading too much into them keeping it close after last week. I’m also not sold on the Colts if Andrew Luck is out for whatever reason, so instead, I’ll side with the under, which is a common trend for both of these teams in December.
