Jets vs Colts Week 2 MNF Prediction

With this NFL season culminating in Super Bowl 50, NFL historians are sure to make mention of big games in the leagues history throughout the season. The Week 2 Jets-Colts Monday Night Football game will bring back quite a few feelings of nostalgia for long-time NFL fans.

ESPN will nationally televise the Jets-Colts MNF game from Indianapolis beginning at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Monday.

While watching the Jets-Colts, you can expect that ESPN will dig deep into its historical vault to find numerous highlights of the most famous Jets-Colts game, Super Bowl III, where Joe Namath guaranteed New York would upset the heavily-favored Colts. And then they did, winning 16-7, in large part validating the planned AFL-NFL merger.

Of course the NFL has changed dramatically in the nearly 50 years since that Jets-Colts Super Bowl match, as have these two franchises. That Super Bowl III win marked the only time the Jets have made a Super Bowl.

And the Colts franchise went through significant changes, moving from the NFC to the AFC and from Baltimore to Indianapolis, where the Colts have enjoyed tremendous success in the past decade-plus, winning Super Bowl XLI behind Peyton Manning, 29-17 against Chicago. Indianapolis also lost in Super Bowl XLIV to New Orleans, 31-17.

After switching from Manning to Andrew Luck at quarterback, Indianapolis has barely missed a beat, continuing to be one of the AFC teams that is in the running for a Super Bowl berth each season. New York, meanwhile, hasnt even won a divisional title since 2002, although it did reach the AFC Championship Game in the 2009 and 2010 seasons with a wild card berth. The Jets and Colts met in the AFC title game after the 2009 season, with Indianapolis winning, 30-17.

While the Jets and Colts have not had the same level of success in recent years, Week 1 of the 2015 season saw a role reversal for the Jets and Colts.

New York put together a dominant second half at home, blowing out Cleveland, 31-10. The Jets used a strong ground game to top Cleveland, led by Chris Ivorys 91 yards and two touchdowns. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 179 yards and two scores for New York.

Meanwhile, Indianapolis fell at Buffalo in Week 1, 27-14. The Colts were flat early, and the Bills jumped to a 17-0 lead. Andrew Luck finished with 243 yards passing and two touchdowns, but he also threw two interceptions. Frank Gore wasnt much of a factor in his first game with the Colts, rushing only eight times for 31 yards.
