The Colts will host the red-hot Patriots in a playoff-like showdown on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Among the notable injuries are Colts’ Pro Bowl center Ryan Kelly, who was ruled out due to a personal issue and Patriots’ running back Damien Harris, who was ruled out on Friday. Second-year center Danny Pinter and rookie Rhamondre Stevenson are expected to start in the place of Kelly and Harris respectfully.
The Colts have to be looking forward to keeping things rolling on the offensive side of the ball. Since early November, the Colts have been leading the NFL in scoring offense. They’ve been one of the top scoring offenses in the NFL since things started to come together after Week 4. The Patriots rank 19th in run defense and the Colts have the best running back in the NFL.
With little margin for error heading into the last three regular season games, the Colts will be looking to take care of business against its long-time division rival and keep pace with the rest of the AFC for a playoff spot.
