Jacoby Brissett will throw an interception: FICTION

Jacoby Brissett was traded to the Indianapolis Colts just before the beginning of the regular season with no knowledge of the playbook. By the end of week 1 he was on the field and leading the Indianapolis offense.

All things considered, Brissett has done an outstanding job. He’s playing on one of the least talented teams in the NFL with very little help and he’s managed to will the Colts to 3 wins and has made them competitive for several others.

Despite his penchant for throwing it deep and his big arm, Brissett has only thrown 5 interceptions this season. While he was under deep duress against Jacksonville in their last matchup, he managed to avoid turning the ball over.

I think Brissett has a decent day against a great defense.

Next: Free agent signings have propelled the Jags and playoff picture.

The formula for how fans react the Jaguars has been set. If the Jaguars win, it’s a great feeling and the perception of the defense is they are elite.

If the Jaguars lose, it’s because the offense is a horror show and the quarterback is showing why the team can’t be a real contender in the playoffs.

I don’t think we learn much about the team this week because they will win relatively comfortably. The Colts are bad on defense so the Jaguars should look fine on offense, and the Jacksonville defense has already overwhelmed the Colts once before this year.

The Jaguars just need to win this one and find a way to get Leonard Fournette going again. They will.

PREDICTION: Jaguars 23 – Colts 10
