At the onset of the season, the Colts had high hopes. QB Matt Ryan arrived after re-writing the Falcons’ record book for passing. Instead, Indianapolis has gone through a betting on NFL season from Hell. The Colts flopped out of the gate and never recovered. Head coach Frank Reich was fired last month. And interim coach Jeff Saturday is seen as a joke. On Saturday, the Colts have a tough assignment at Minnesota. The Vikings are one of the NFL’s most improved teams. Most important of all, they are playoff bound.

It was just the third time in NFL history a team has scored at least that many in the fourth. And it was a little bit personal for Hooker. Also, Hooker had one of three interceptions of Matt Ryan. Hooker was drafted 15th overall by the Colts in 2017. But he didn’t get a second contract after four injury-plagued seasons. He signed with Dallas during training camp last year.

While Jefferson broke the team’s receiving yards mark set by Sammy White in 1976 against Detroit.
