15. Indianapolis Colts
Starting off the new season with two tough games on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans almost seemed unfair for a team like the Indianapolis Colts, but at least Sunday resulted in a win.
One week after nearly knocking off the Chargers in overtime, the Colts found a way to hold off the Titans 19-17 in Week 2 to get back to .500 on the young season.
Ever since Andrew Luck pulled off arguably the biggest surprise of preseason by announcing his retirement, the most popular topic of discussion in Indianapolis has been whether Jacoby Brissett can help the Colts remain strong contenders in the AFC.
The season is young, but Indianapolis has plenty of reasons to be thrilled with the way Brissett has looked over the last two weeks, including Sunday’s win that saw the Colts quarterback toss three touchdown passes against a very tough Titans’ defense.
Some critics tried to claim that Brissett’s level of play from two years ago should have Indianapolis concerned, but the scenario is completely different since the Colts are currently in a better situation on offense.
Losing Luck was certainly tough, but Sunday was another reminder how Indianapolis is still in great shape with Brissett.
