Why the Colts can cover

In each win this season, the Colts have been able to successfully mix in the run and the pass. In those matchups, Jonathan Taylor rushed for over 100 yards, while Carson Wentz threw at least two passing touchdowns with no interceptions. Wentz went 52-of-78 for 601 yards with six passing touchdowns in those victories.

Michael Pittman Jr. has emerged as the No. 1 receiver for Indianapolis. Wentz and Pittman Jr. have developed a strong rapport through the first eight games of the year. The USC product ranks ninth in the league with 594 receiving yards. Pittman Jr. has caught eight passes for 20-plus yards and averages a team-high 74.3 receiving yards per game.

Why the Jets can cover

New York's offense exploded against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Jets finished with a season-high 511 total yards of offense with 6.6 yards per play. Quarterback Mike White started his first career game since rookie Zach Wilson was out with a knee injury. White went 37-of-45 for 405 yards and three touchdowns.

Rookie running back Michael Carter had his best game as a pro, posting 15 carries for 77 yards with a score and also adding nine catches for 95 yards. The shifty tailback made defenders miss in the open field and was a safety valve for White. New York was down 11 points with five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, but showed plenty of resilience in its comeback victory. The Jets hope to carry this momentum into Thursday Night Football.
