The Matchup:

The Indianapolis Colts (8-6) travel to the Atlanta Falcons (6-8), clinging to the AFC’s 7th and final playoff spot, while the ‘Dirty Birds’ are hoping to keep their own postseason hopes alive—trailing the leading Tampa Bay Buccaneers by just a game in the woeful NFC South.

The Colts will be without both #1 wideout Michael Pittman Jr. and running back Zack Moss offensively, but star workhorse Jonathan Taylor will be returning off of recent thumb surgery. The Colts once again will want to establish the run with Taylor to free up passing lanes for starting quarterback Gardner Minshew, so expect a heavy workload for #28.

Meanwhile, the Colts defense has been red hot, featuring a ferocious pass rush and generating a lot of takeaways, and they’ll look to tee off against newly named Falcons starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke. Defensively, the Colts defense will largely be focused on stopping top Falcons rookie running back Bijan Robinson, who’s dangerous with the football in his hands.
