With so few games remaining, the Indianapolis Colts’ chances of making the NFL Playoffs are growing slim. They look to keep the dream alive when they play the New York Jets on Dec. 5. Don’t miss this edition of ‘Monday Night Football’ – click to watch!
At 5-6, the Indianapolis Colts don’t seem like they’re NFL Playoff contenders. But, there’s only one victory separating them from the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans, the two teams ahead of the Colts in the AFC South. If the Colts can put down the New York Jets, they may just make it to the post-season. If they lose when they face the Jets at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, it’ll all be over. Yikes. The game is set for 8:30 PM ET so be ready to see what happens!

Colts fans might be optimistic because the team has a little luck on their side – Andrew Luck! After suffering a concussion in Week 11, the 27-year-old quarterback sat out the Thanksgiving Game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, he’s back (per SB Nation) and ready to lead this team for what could be the greatest playoff run ever.
As for the Jets, well. At 3-8 (and currently sitting dead last in the AFC East division with the 10-2 New England Patriots and 7-5 Miami Dolphins) there’s no chance that Gang Green will be competing for a spot in Super Bowl 51. Even though they may not make the playoffs, and they’re still recovering from the tragic death of former player Joe McKnight, the team isn’t giving up on the rest of the season.
“We’re all fighters,” Todd Bowles, 53, head coach for the Jets, said ahead of the game, per Sports Illustrated. “We’re all trying to win every game, whether we’re trying to get to 8-8 or whether we’re trying to be 16-0.” Coach Bowles also threw his support behind Ryan Fitzpatrick, 34, as the team’s starting quarterback.
There’s a chance that Ryan could make his coach proud. The Colts are 31st when It comes to pass defense. They’re not great at making interceptions, only snatching three passes all season. If the Colts want to unseat Houston in the division (and make the postseason) they better step up the game or take the long walk of shame back home.
Who do you want to win this game, HollywoodLifers? Are you hoping the Colts claim victory or are you chanting “J-E-T-S?”
