25. Indianapolis Colts (30)
With Deshaun Watson suffering a season-ending injury, the Indianapolis Colts realized they would have a better chance of defeating the Houston Texans on the road with Tom Savage at quarterback as his replacement. Nothing against Savage, but when looking at the impact Watson had made on this Texans’ offense in such a short period of time was going to be difficult to match.
Luckily, the Colts were able to take advantage of the rookie’s absence by hanging on for the 20-14 victory over their division rivals, although it was a lot closer towards the end than it should have been. And what shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone at this point, it was T.Y. Hilton who once again ended up being the difference maker for Indianapolis on offense.
For a quarterback that doesn’t have much to work with in the first place, Jacoby Brissett took ful advantage of Hilton in the passing game against Houston after the wideout caught five passes for 175 yards to go along with two trips into the end zone. When considering the team just recently found out that Andrew Luck would miss the remainder of the season, at least the Colts have one thing to be excited about after their win over the Texans, right?
