The 2-5 Jets are coming off a major win in Week 8 heading into their “Thursday Night Football” game against the 3-5 Colts in Indianapolis. The Jets have yet to win an away game this season.
The Jets upset the Bengals, 34-31, on Sunday. The star of the game was Jets backup quarterback Mike White, who led the NFL in passing yards for the week with 405 in his first-career NFL start. White will make his second start against the Colts as Jets rookie QB Zach Wilson remains out with a PCL injury from Week 7.
The Colts lost in Week 7 in overtime to the Titans, 34-31. Quarterback Carson Wentz threw for two interceptions in this game, his most in a game so far this season. He also threw for three touchdowns in the loss.
Colts running back Jonathan Taylor has the second-most rushing yards in the NFL this season with 649. With Titans Derrick Henry possibly out for the rest of the season, Taylor has a strong chance to finish the season leading the NFL in rushing. Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. is ninth in NFL receiving yards this season with 594.
According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, the Colts are favored to win by 78.9 percent.
