Jacksonville Jaguars (4-5) at Indianapolis Colts (5-4)

Sunday, November 17, 1PM ET

After looking like one of the teams to beat in the AFC, the Indianapolis Colts have suddenly fallen into a precarious situation. After two straight losses, they’re now second in the AFC South and can’t afford to fall any further behind. That’s why they simply must have Jacoby Brissett back.

At this point, all signs suggest he’ll return to the mix for the Colts in Week 11. That’s would be a huge relief if so for Indianapolis, which has watched its offense stall under the leadership of Brian Hoyer. When you can’t even beat the Miami Dolphins, you know there’s a problem.

With Nick Foles back under center, it’s unclear what to expect from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Even with Gardner Minshew working his magic, this was a middle-of-the-road team at best. Can the former Super Bowl MVP bring enough extra juice to the offense to put the Jaguars back in the playoff hunt? I’m leaning towards “no,” but anything is possible.

For the time being, I’m going with the Colts in this one. That is, of course, assuming that Brissett is at the helm of the Indianapolis offense and not Hoyer. If it’s the other way around, you might as well give the Jaguars the win and everyone can save themselves the trouble.

Prediction: Colts win 27-23
