Colts vs. Jets: General Preview
With all of the games of week 5 over, it’s time to move on to week 6. The Colts play the Jets, and are looking to right the ship after three straight losses.
The Colts play the Jets this week. Going into the season, this was seen as an easy game the Colts would win. But now, that might not be the case. The Jets still aren’t very good, but the Colts have stumbled more than people thought they would.
Indianapolis is still getting killed by injuries. They just putt Matt Slauson on IR. Although it does look like this might be the week Anthony Castonzo plays. They better hope it is. Because if not, the Colts will be down to only two starters along the offensive line.
Andrew Luck should be able to have a good game. The Jets’ secondary isn’t very good and can be had for a lot of yards. The key will be finishing inside the red zone. They haven’t been very good at doing that this year, and it has cost them games.
Marlon Mack might also be back for this game. That would give a boost to the running game. They need to stay committed to the running game. There hasn’t been a lot of balance in the Colts offense recently, and that needs to change.
On defense, Indy just need to get healthy. They were completely over-matched by the Patriots last week, and a lot of that was due to injuries. Hopefully they can get Darius Leonard, Kenny Moore, and Clayton Geathers all back for this week’s game.
It should be a close game between these two teams. They both are just trying to get better every week while they rebuild. Whoever protects the ball the best should come out of the game victorious.
