Scott Tolzien benched for Jacoby Brissett as Colts get blown out

The Indianapolis Colts are having an extremely difficult time covering for Andrew Luck.

With the Colts being wiped out 37-3 by the Los Angeles Rams, coach Chuck Pagano opted for a different look, bringing in newly-acquired Jacoby Brissett to replace the struggling Scott Tolzien.

The Colts have little to lose by making the switch. Tolzien had been just 9-18 with two interceptions. For what it’s worth, Brissett’s first pass was a 50-yard completion to set up Indianapolis’s first touchdown of the day.

If Brissett shows the Colts anything at all, he may well get the nod in the weeks to come with Luck still reportedly a ways away from being able to take his starting job back.
