New Orleans Saints v Indianapolis Colts

Week 15 comes to a merciless end on Monday night as the Indianapolis Colts take on the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints are hoping to keep pace for a first-round bye, as the 11-3 Seahawks and Packers currently hold the one and two seeds respectively. The Saints can move to 11-3 themselves with a win tonight, and with games remaining against the Titans and Panthers, there’s a good chance they could win out.

The Colts are in a much more desperate situation. At 6-7, they’re still in the hunt for the playoffs, and a big loss by the Steelers on Sunday night has opened an opportunity to catch them at 8-6. They’ll still need a considerable amount of help in the final two weeks, but it all start with a win on Monday night. If they lose a single game left on their schedule, they’re out.

The pressure is on. The stakes are high. Let’s enjoy some “Monday Night Football.”
