New York Jets vs. Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium

Monday, September 21st at 8:30pm EST on ESPN

Tag #BundleUpBGS on social media! We want to see how you are supporting your teams this weekend!

The Match-up

The New York Jets lost their starting quarterback in the preseason to a punch in the face, and have to rely on Ryan Fitzpatrick for the first few weeks to open the season. The Harvard graduate proved that he deserves to be a starting quarterback in the League with an outstanding performance in week 1, giving the Jets a victory and a great start to the season. The Colts on the other hand, did not start out their push for a 2016 Super Bowl the way they had hoped. Andrew Luck did not come out with the precision the Colts brass was looking for and ended up throwing 2 interceptions en route to a week 1 loss. If the Jets can continue to tread water and win a few more games, they could be in a good position for when Geno Smith comes back from a broken jaw. Andrew Luck and the Colts need to get back on track this week, or face an uphill climb in the division to make the playoffs.

The Prediction
New York Jets - 15
Indianapolis Colts - 24

Cute Guy Watch 

Born in Sweden. Native Canadian. Played at Yale. Former gymnast. What else do I even need to say? Tyler Varga now plays for the Indianapolis Colts at the age of 21. His young age aside, I'm drooling over our cute guy this week. You're welcome ladies. 


Mascot Match-up

This week we're matching up a jet and a horse. Obviously the speed of a jet is no match for a horse. On the other hand looking at the defensive side, a horse could maneuver and zigzag around the field much easier than a jet could. I don't have a strong feeling toward green or royal blue, and have fond memories of both cities. It's a close call, but I'm ultimately settling for Indy to win this one. Alec and I had a great time at the Vintage Indiana Wine Festival in Indy a couple of years ago that's pulling my heart strings toward the Colts for the win.
