Colts look to keep Luck upright against sack-hungry Jets

Hopefully, there will be a three-way tie atop the AFC South following the conclusion of Monday night's game. Veteran Frank Gore has struggled in each of the last two games with just 78 yards on 33 carries, but the 33-year-old needs just 30 yards rushing to move past Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett (12,739) for eighth on the NFL's all-time list. That's why he's starting Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback this week despite a growing sentiment that NY should see what it has in Bryce Petty, who was so-so in a spot start three weeks ago when the veteran sat out with a sprained knee. The Colts are slight -1.5 favorites on Sports Interaction's National Football League betting odds. Quincy Enunwa racked up his first 100-yard game of the season, collecting 109 yards and a touchdown on 5 catches while Brnadon Marshall pulled in a team-high 6 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown of his own. They played well, but they still lost 22-17. WR Brandon Marshall caught 1-yard TD pass vs. Patriots, first score since October 9 at Pittsburgh - span of five games without reaching end zone. The schedule gets a bit tougher from there as they have two hard road games against the Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders, but the season finishes for them with an easier game at home against the Jaguars.

A Luck-less Colts team is in fact, pretty out of luck.

Time for change in Electoral College
When voters go to the polls on Election Day , they are really voting for electors to serve in the Electoral College. Ms Clinton has 65,250,000 votes compared to the President-elect's 62,686,000 votes, the newspaper reports .

The Indianapolis Colts fell to 5-6 after a 28-7 home defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thanksgiving night. Unfortunately for the Colts, Luck's concussion came at an inopportune time, since the season is winding down and the division is in flux. Wideout TY Hilton who has been a major factor in Colts wins this season gave the team and fans a scare last week when he left the game with an injury, but again, all signs point to him returning to the lineup for the MNF game. Luck adds to their complications, as he's passed for an average of 282.7 yards per game in 10 starts this season.

The quarterback has led the way in two recent impressive road wins for the Colts. Either way, it should be a fairly close game.
