Indianapolis suffered the opening weekend’s worst loss, giving up 46 points to a team that averaged 14 per game in 2016 (the Rams) while scoring just nine points of its own. The only spark in the Colts’ Sunday implosion came from Brissett, the newly-acquired quarterback who sat out the first three quarters in favor of enchanted scarecrow Scott Tolzien. Brissett may not have known the team’s offense, but he did do this with his first pass:
That set up the team’s only touchdown and was light years more interesting than anything Tolzien did.
Brissett will have another opportunity to prove his value on Sunday when Indianapolis takes on Arizona, a team that allowed Matthew Stafford to rack up nearly 300 passing yards last week. The Colts may be in the middle of a rebuild — at least as long as Andrew Luck is out — but Brissett seems to bring considerably more potential to the pocket than Tolzien does as the team’s backup.
Later in the game, he connected on a wide open 30-yard touchdown pass, but not to his first read. He was looking left at the beginning of the play before firing to a seam route.
