After Andrew Luck retired, the keys of the Indianapolis Colts offense were given to Jacoby Brissett. The former Pats QB, Brissett was no stranger to taking charge of the Colts at times but now that Luck has retired, Brissett is now in charge.

Given the Colts aren’t that great, Brissett’s going to have some growing pains being the starter week in and week out. That didn’t happen in the first half against the Falcons as Brissett completed his first 16 passes, including this wide open touchdown to Zach Pascal.

With his first 16 completions, Brissett passed for 178 yards. After his first incompletion, things got a bit off the rails but Brissett got it back together and threw at TD to T.Y. Hilton right before halftime to put the Colts up 20-3.

At halftime, Brissett is 21/27, 218 yards, and two touchdowns. It remains to be seen if Brissett can keep this up but he’s definitely taking advantage of this opportunity.
