Get to know Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett
For now, the offense is in his hands.
The Indianapolis Colts acquired quarterback Jacoby Brissett in a trade with the New England Patriots earlier this month, giving up former first-round pick Phillip Dorsett in the process.
The Colts turned to Brissett in Week 2 after a blowout loss in Week 1 to the Rams. Scott Tolzien, who started against the Rams, threw a pair of pick sixes and the offense never found a rhythm.
