The Patriots (9-4) will look to extend their win streak against the rival Colts (7-6), who are fighting to be on top in the AFC South. 

After earning a 14-10 win against the Bills on Sunday, the Patriots will kick off the NFL’s first set of Saturday matchups. They are traveling to Indianapolis in time to face the Colts, who most recently shut out the Texans 31-0. 

As Colts running back Jonathan Taylor continues to stay in MVP discussions, he will be challenged by the New England defense. During the Patriots’ recent win against Buffalo, the defense allowed only 99 rushing yards and recovered a fumble that resulted in a touchdown. On the other hand, Taylor recorded 32 carries for 143 rushing yards with two touchdowns against the Texans. 

Although Mac Jones only threw the ball three times in Buffalo due to the weather conditions, he will likely get the ball in the air and connect with his top receivers. Wide receiver Kendrick Bourne leads New England with 623 total receiving yards with seven touchdowns and receiver Jakobi Meyers follows close behind with 620 total receiving yards and nine touchdowns.  

During the last 10 meetings between these teams, the Patriots have won eight times. The last time Indianapolis recorded a victory in the rivalry matchup was in 2009, when the Colts defeated the Patriots 35-34. Indianapolis went on to compete in Super Bowl XLIV and lost to the Saints 31-17.
