UPDATE: Brissett finished the game with 165 passing yards and seven rushing yards. Mack finished with 19 rushing yards. Hilton finished with four catches for 25 yards. Zach Pascal led the team with four catches for 44 yards.
The New Orleans Saints are crushing the Indianapolis Colts 34-0 on Monday Night Football to close out Week 15, and the Colts offense has been miserable. If you were counting on Jacoby Brissett, Marlon Mack, or really any Colts skill position players, it’s been brutal.
Midway through the fourth quarter, Jacoby Brissett has completed 12 of 24 passes for 113 yards and rushed for an additional seven yards. Marlon Mack has rushed ten times for 15 yards. Dontrelle Inman leads the team with two receptions for 25 yards and T.Y. Hilton has no catches on three targets. All in all, a miserable night.
The Colts will be eliminated from playoff contention with this loss, and one has to wonder if they shut down any of their big names in the final two weeks. Hilton in particular is dealing with a calf injury and is on a pitch count.
Next week, Indianapolis hosts a shaky Carolina Panthers defense. The Panthers have given up the eighth most fantasy points to wide receivers and the most fantasy points to running backs. It’s a strong matchup if the Colts keep their big names active. It will be something to track the next few days heading into Week 16.
