The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts renew one of the league’s more recent rivalries when the two AFC playoff contenders face off Saturday in Week 15. The Patriots have not lost a game since Week 6, while the Colts enter this game at 7-6 after a 0-3 start.
New England’s formula for success hasn’t involved rookie quarterback Mac Jones throwing the ball all around the park, but he is completing passes at an elite rate. The Patriots running game has been solid all season, and the defense is playing at a historic clip as well.
The Colts have found their footing after a rocky start. Jonathan Taylor is in the MVP conversation, while Carson Wentz has started to develop a connection with his receivers. Frank Reich’s offensive system is starting to come together, while Indy’s defense has been a sneaky good unit this season.
