Chargers @ Colts Monday: LA into playoffs

With the loss, the Colts are now 4-10-1 on the season. They played Nick Foles in the game and the result was a fiasco on offense. Foles threw for 3 INTs and took 7 sacks in the game. He had 143 passing yards in the outing and a passer rating of just 31.9. The Colts only managed a field goal on offense in a display that should cost them any confidence that they might have had in Foles.

Justin Herbert of the Chargers was the winning quarterback in the game. He had 235 passing yards in the outing and his ratio of TDs to INTs was 0 to 1. The Chargers used a ground attack to score their TDs, getting two rushing touchdowns from Austin Ekeler. Herbert had a mediocre passer rating of 84.7 in the game.

Meanwhile, the Chargers improved to 9-6 with the 17-point victory. They also clinched a playoff spot by virtue of a Wild Card. Things could change in the final two weeks but if the playoffs started today, the Chargers would play the Cincinnati Bengals. There is some potential for LA to improve to a five seed, where they would then face either Tennessee or Jacksonville. You would think that that matchup would be far more favorable for LA.
