Indianapolis Colts MVP: Week 4 at Seattle Seahawks
Each week we will be handing out awards to the Colts’ top performers, and we begin with the MVP of last night’s matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
The Colts put up a good fight on Sunday night, but in the end the Seahawks turned it on and pulled away for a comfortable victory. However, Jacoby Brissett really stood out in an otherwise ugly performance from Indianapolis.
MVP – QB Jacoby Brissett
Colts fans didn’t know what to expect from Jacoby Brissett on Sunday night as he made the first road start of his NFL career in possibly the most hostile environment in the league.
Brissett showed up prepared for this enormous challenge as he completed 14 of his 20 passes for 142 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. While his stats look pretty impressive, it was his resolve that gave Colts fans hope that the team could succeed without Andrew Luck.
Brissett stared down a receiver and threw a pick-six giving the Seahawks an early lead. However, he bounced back to retake the lead heading into halftime and showed great leadership skills on the sidelines.

The Seahawks ended up suffocating the Colts’ offense in the second half as Brissett could only manage 15 yards passing with 2 completions on 9 attempts.
Even with that rough second half, Jacoby Brissett has continued to prove the Colts were right in trading for him, and eventually giving him the starting job in Andrew Luck‘s absence. In a game where it may appear difficult to pull out some positive takeaways, Brissett looked unfazed in a primetime road game.
