Colts hit the road to take on Jets

The Colts (2-2) will head for the East Coast to go up against the New York Jets (2-3) on Sunday.

Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. Indianapolis is coming off its most emotional win of the season after overcoming a 21-3 halftime deficit to top the Green Bay Packers, 30-27. Playing for head coach Chuck Pagano, the Colts were able to deliver last week’s game ball to him in the hospital following their dramatic win. QB-Andrew Luck became the fourth rookie quarterback in NFL history to overcome an 18-plus point deficit to win a game and the first since Matthew Stafford in 2009.

This week, the Colts will be taking on the Jets for the fourth time in the last four seasons, including postseason play. The last time these two teams met was in the 2011 AFC Wild Card Playoff, with Jets K-Nick Folk hitting a game-winning 32-yard field goal as time expired to end the Colts season.

Last week, the Jets fell below .500 after losing their second straight game to the undefeated Houston Texans, 23-17. RB-Joe McKnight recorded a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the third quarter to give the Jets their NFLrecord 12th straight season with a return for a touchdown. QB-Mark Sanchez finished the game completing 14-of-31 passes for 230 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for a 54.5 quarterback rating. QB-Tim Tebow saw more action in the game, rushing five times for 19 yards, including a 13-yard run.
