This was the Colts’ first win of the season. They overcame another bad week from Vinatieri and were able to win 19-17. The offense once again gave a steady dose of the running game. While the passing game wasn’t the best, Brissett once again did just enough.
Brissett threw for even less yards than he did in the opener. He went 17/28 for 146 yards. But he also threw for 3 touchdown passes, including the game-winner to T.Y. Hilton. While he did lead the team to a win, Brissett played much worse than he did in Los Angeles.
The reason for that is his two turnovers. His interception was terribly thrown behind the wide receiver. He also lost a fumble when he tried to pump fake the ball and pull it back. Those turnovers could have led to big time points for the Titans.
But ultimately, the defense held up to keep the Tennessee offense in check. That’s why the Colts won. Brissett even took three sacks in this game. He learned a valuable lesson in this game though. He learned that if he turns the ball over, the game becomes immensely harder.
The home opener was played in week three against the Falcons, and it led to the best game for Brissett in his young career.
