Colts face Chargers on Monday Night Football



The Indianapolis Colts (4-1) will travel to the West Coast this weekend to take on the San Diego Chargers (2-3) on Monday Night Football. Kickoff is set for 8:40 p.m. EDT at Qualcomm Stadium.

The Colts are coming off their third straight win of the season, a 34-28 defeat of the Seattle Seahawks. Indianapolis suffered an early 12-point deficit in the first quarter, but outscored Seattle 34-16 for the remainder of the game.

Offensively, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton had a career day, catching five passes for a career- high 140 yards and two touchdowns. Near the end of the first quarter, Hilton caught a 73-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Andrew Luck to give the Colts their first points of the game. Running back Donald Brown scored the game-winning touchdown for the Colts in the fourth quarter, putting the team up 31-28 with just under nine minutes remaining in the contest.

The Colts saw major contributions from the defense and special teams as well. Safety Delano Howell returned a blocked field goal 61 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Colts a 14-12 lead. Cornerback Darius Butler sealed the game in the end with an interception on Seattle’s final drive of the day.

The Chargers possess the fifth-ranked offense in the NFL this season, gaining an average of 401.6 yards per game. Quarterback Philip Rivers has completed 141-of-191 passes for 1,610 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions for a passer rating of 110.
