Indianapolis Colts vs San Diego Chargers takes place in the NFL on Monday Night Football tonight, with the Colts looking to maintain their excellent form with another win today. The game will start at 8.40 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Apart from a minor blip against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2, the Indianapolis Colts are having a perfect season. They come into this Week 6 game with a record of 4-1, having won three straight games including some excellent victories against the San Francisco 49ers (27-7) in week 3, as well as the Seattle Seahawks (34-28) in week 5.
The Colts have one of the most efficient offenses in the NFL so far this season and are averaging 27.8 points per game, which is enough to rank them 4th in that category in the league.
Much of their progress has been made on the rush, where they also rank 4th, with them claiming an average of 142 yards per game. Andrew Luck has been using Ahmad Bradshaw as his main battering ram through opposition defenses. He has carried 41 times for a total yardage gain of 186 and two touchdowns. Donald Brown has supplemented the good work of Bradshaw, carrying 19 for 157 yards and one touchdown.
Andrew Luck himself is 97 of 156 for 1,144 yards and seven touchdowns, and he will be hoping to dictate the pace of the game for the Colts as they look to inflict another loss on the Chargers.
San Diego come into this game on 2-3 and will want to win this game to get back to .500. Their defense has let them down this season, and they will have to be on their game today to keep out a powerful Colts offense.
The Chargers, despite their record, have the players and the skills to give even the top teams some trouble. The last time they played at home they defeated the Dallas Cowboys 30-21 in week 4, and they will return to the Qualcomm Stadium tonight to try and claim another big scalp.
The Chargers will look to do the damage through their pass offense, in which they are ranked 3rd in the NFL, averaging 311.2 yards per game. Philip Rivers is having a great season and is 140 of 190 for 1,610 yards and 13 touchdowns.
