When four-time Pro Bowl quarterback Andrew Luck suddenly retired just a few weeks shy of his 30th birthday after six injury-plagued NFL seasons, as The Inquisitr reported, the Indianapolis Colts seemed to be looking at a lost season. But former New England Patriots backup QB Jacoby Brissett stepped in and led the Colts to first place in the AFC South after four weeks, with a 2-2 record.
The Colts have dropped to second place following a Houston Texans win earlier on Sunday, and now face the toughest test of their season when they travel to Kansas City to take on the undefeated Chiefs in an NFL Sunday Night Football matchup that will stream live from Missouri.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET at 76,416-seat Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday, October 6. That start time will be 7:20 p.m. CT, 5:20 p.m. PT.
In the United Kingdom and Ireland, the Colts-Chiefs NFL Sunday Night game kicks off at 1:20 a.m. British Summer Time on Monday, October 7. Down under in Australia, the game gets underway at 10:20 a.m. on Monday, Eastern Australia Standard Time, or 8:20 a.m. Western. In Japan, kickoff will come at 9:20 a.m. Japan Standard Time on Monday morning.
The Chiefs, who sit atop the AFC West, need a win to keep pace with the Patriots, who cruised to a victory over Washington earlier Sunday. A win would allow Kansas City to become one of only two 5-0 teams in the NFL. There is one other undefeated team, the NFC West-leading San Francisco 49ers. But the Niners are only 3-0, after a bye week, and don't play until Monday night in Week 5.
The 26-year-old Brissett — who was drafted in the third round by New England in 2016 out of North Carolina State University, as The Inquisitr reported — has accrued a quarterback rating of 102.1 so far in his first season as a full-time starter.
He faces a difficult assignment on Sunday night as he matches up with Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes, who has already thrown 10 touchdowns passes in his first four games, according to Pro Football Reference, after putting up an astonishing 50 TDs in his first full season last year.
