Week 6 of the NFL season has the New York Jets coming off a big win over the Denver Broncos. After a three game losing streak the Jets righted the ship last week and started to climb back towards the .500 mark and contention in the AFC East.

Today the Jets get their second straight home game, against the Indianapolis Colts, in a rematch of the Jets only championship in Super Bowl III.

The Colts come into the game struggling, losers of three straight and four out of five on the season. Andrew Luck returned this year after missing the entire 2017 season with an arm injury, and his arm does not look the same. The Colts offense has become a dink and dunk short passing game, and the Colts have been unable to run the ball, making the Colts offense much less threatening than in years past. The Colts defense has given up 34 or more points in three of five contests and has been one of the worst defenses in the NFL against the pass. The Colts come into the game seriously compromised by injury, with 10 players on injured reserve and another four out for this game. In short, this game shapes up as one of the best opportunities for a Jets win this season. We’ll see if the Jets can capitalize on the opportunity.

It’s the Jets and the Colts going at it at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Leave your comments in the section cleverly marked “comments” below. Enjoy the game everybody.
