For the first time this season for Colts fans and the second time this season for Saints fans, those who wish to watch their team’s game will have to scan their TV channels for ESPN. Indianapolis at New Orleans is the featured game on “Monday Night Football” in Week 15.
Monday night’s game will have an impact on the NFL playoff picture regardless of the result. The Colts need a win to stay alive in the AFC hunt, as a loss to the Saints would eliminate them from contention. New Orleans, which already clinched a playoff spot in the NFC by virtue of winning the NFC South, are still hoping to earn the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC, or at least a first-round bye.
If the Colts hope to pull off a stunning upset as nine-point underdogs, they’ll need the help of wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who was listed as questionable with a calf injury entering Week 15. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett is aiming for his fourth straight road game without an interception, but he’ll need all the help he can get in the Superdome against the Saints.
That also means Brissett likely will need to outplay Drew Brees, who threw 5 TD passes in a 62-7 rout of the Colts the last time they visited New Orleans back in 2011. The Saints QB, who has posted 300 or more yards, 3 or more TDs and a rating of 110 or better in three of his last four home games, needs just 3 TD passes Monday night to pass Peyton Manning (539) for the all-time career record.
