The Indianapolis Colts face the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football in NFL Week 13. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Monday Night Football is upon us and Andrew Luck is bringing his Indianapolis Colts to New York to face Ryan Fitzpatrick and the reeling Jets. New York comes in with a 3-8 record following a hard-fought loss to the Patriots last week. That marks three-straight in the loss column and leaves the Jets in the spoiler role. The Colts are 5-6, but just one game out in the AFC South race, coming off of a Thanksgiving loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The aforementioned Luck is set to return to the lineup for the Colts, practicing all week and being cleared from concussion protocol. For New York, Nick Mangold is set to return after missing the last several games and practicing for the first time in over a month. His job got a bit easier as Robert Mathis has been declared out for the contest.
The Jets need an efficient game out of Ryan Fitzpatrick. The world saw last week, when he plays well, so does his team. If he doesn’t, it looks very bad for the guys in the green jerseys. On defense, New York must get in the face of Andrew Luck. The Jets front seven was supposed to dominate in 2016, but Muhammad Wilkerson and company have been noticeably silent in the pass rush. Indianapolis must attack the New York’s defense. Darrelle Revis and company have been vulnerable all year and the Colts must capitalize on it.
As always, Monday Night Football will be broadcast on ESPN. This also means you can stream the action online through WatchESPN. Access the service online or through the ESPN app by logging in with a cable or satellite subscription.

Can New York play spoiler, or will Indianapolis get back on track? Despite the discrepancy in record, this one could truly go either way. That’s what inconsistency leads to, but it might mean an entertaining affair on Monday night.
