Andrew Luck who? It’s impressive how quickly Jacoby Brissett stepped into Luck’s huge shoes upon the franchise quarterback’s abrupt retirement. Brissett continues to flourish in his first year as a starter for the Indianapolis Colts, throwing for 326 yards and four TDs in a win over Deshaun Watson’s Houston Texans on Sunday.
Jacoby Brissett’s 4th TD of the day.
Zachary Pascal’s 2nd TD of the day.
What a day indeed.

Black QB showdowns are becoming a weekly affair in the NFL and Brissett has the Colts positioned in first place in the AFC South at 4-2. ESPN FPI gives them a 34 % chance to win the division. Jacoby got a little seasoning with the Pats as a third-stringer. Then, the Colts traded Phillip Dorsett to the Pats for Brissett in 2017.
Luck retired prior to this season and the rest is history. As a matter of fact, just call them the luckiest franchise on the set.
Jacoby Brissett is flying under the radar with a career TD/INT ratio of 2.7
➕27 touchdowns/10 interceptions
This season he has thrown for multiple touchdowns in all, but 1 game this season.
Brissett has thrown for 3 touchdowns in 3 of his 6 games this year

LJ vs. DangerRuss
Lamar Jackson still ain’t playing fair with these guys out here. The one-man-recking band is still on his bullshit. In another classic Black quarterback clash, LJ did Russell Wilson and the Seahawks dirty on Sunday with a typically-riveting dual-threat performance.
Very rarely does Wilson get out-electrified, but Jackson threw for 143 yards and ran for another 116 and the Ravens spanked Seattle 30-16. Another signature win for the best QB in the vaunted 2018 NFL Draft.
"I don't really care about the doubters. I came here to win."

Dak vs. Doug Pederson
There was a third Black QB clash of sorts in Dallas, as Dak Prescott (along with his high-paid sidekick Zeke Elliott) made Philly’s head coach Doug Pederson pay for publicly guaranteeing that “We’re going to win the football game.”
Not only did the Eagles get smashed 37-10, but Dak played a tremendous game and Zeke poured salt on the wound when asked about Pederson’s comments:
“Honestly, we don’t give a f*ck what Doug Pederson says.”
