Last week, Indianapolis faced the Los Angeles Rams on the road and were defeated, 46-9.

The Colts encountered a 10-0 deficit early in the first quarter after the Rams converted a field goal and returned an interception for a touchdown.

Indianapolis scored its first points of the game with 6:21 left in the first quarter on a 20-yard field goal by kicker Adam Vinatieri.

Los Angeles would score 27 unanswered points in the second and third quarters to take a 37-3 advantage heading into the fourth quarter.

Jacoby Brissett relieved starting quarterback Scott Tolzien in the final frame and led Indianapolis on a five-play, 84-yard scoring drive that resulted in a three-yard rushing touchdown by rookie running back Marlon Mack.

The Rams added nine more points to pad their lead and gain the victory.

Defensively, safety Matthias Farley earned his first career start at strong safety and led the team with 10 tackles (eight solo).
