White played great, yes, but in addition to the 3 TD passes, he threw a couple of picks. The Colts’ defense ranks first in takeaways with 18. 

Indianapolis will mix up defensive coverages and force White into bad throws. If that happens, the Colts won’t be as forgiving as the Bengals were. 

Not only that, but White and the Jets scored 17 points in the fourth-quarter to beat Cincinnati 34-31. On Thursday night, Lightning won’t strike twice. Expect Carson Wentz to carve up the Jets’ defense. Expect the Indy D to contain White and force him into a few mistakes. Colts cover.
