2018 Thursday Night Football: Indianapolis Colts vs. New England Patriots October 04, 2018 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the Indianapolis Colts moves to Foxborough, Massachusetts to face the New England Patriots in Week 5 of the 2018 NFL Season at Gillette Stadium. Game time is set at 8:20PM ET.

The New England Patriots (2-2) will enter Week 5 with a positive momentum after a 38-7 blowout win against the Miami Dolphins last weekend. New England was in disarray after its Week 4 loss against Detroit. Their huge win over the Dolphins is the right remedy after a sorry loss and they now have a chance to earn another win as they face a banged-up Indianapolis.

First year Coach Frank Reich and his Indianapolis Colts (1-3) are put in a tough spot when they go up against the New England Patriots. QB Andrew Luck, who is (0-5) against the Patriots will try to score his first win against a team who has tormented him every single game.

A loss against New England will further move down the Colts in the standings but a win could start a rejuvenated drive as the season progresses.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the New England Patriots as the 10-point favorites to beat the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night.
