The Saints have already clinched the NFC South but are still playing for a first-round bye. The Colts are in must-win mode to make the playoffs at all, entering Week 15 as the No. 10 seed in the AFC with a 6-7 record.

Looking ahead to this pivotal “Monday Night Football” matchups, these are the biggest questions that will need to be answered to determine the outcome.

Will T.Y. Hilton play?

The Colts have not had T.Y. Hilton on the field since Nov. 21. He’s been out with a calf injury that had him limited during practices this past week, and on Saturday Hilton did not practice at all. Per the Colts, he’s a game-time decision on Monday night.

When Hilton is healthy, he’s exceptionally dangerous. Through seven games played in 2019, the speedy receiver has hauled in 35 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns. In a game that figures to feature some scoring, the Colts would obviously have a much better shot at pulling off the upset if Hilton plays.

Can Darius Leonard rally Indy’s D?

The Colts have been getting scorched by opposing offenses over the past month, and the past two games have been disastrous as the Titans and Buccaneers racked up 69 combined points.

Colts linebacker Darius Leonard has played well, however, and last weekend he had an epic game that included two interceptions and one pick-six. But overall, Leonard’s heroics haven’t been enough to inspire outstanding play from his teammates.

Why TIME Chose Greta Thunberg as the 2019 Person of the Year

  Why TIME Chose Greta Thunberg as the 2019 Person of the Year TIME's Editor-in-Chief explains why climate activist Greta Thunberg was chosen as the 2019 Person of the Year. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); It began with a story line familiar to every parent of every generation in every corner of the globe: an indignant teenager and a sudden burst of rebellion. It became one of the most unlikely and surely one of the swiftest ascents to global influence in history.

The Saints have still managed a 3-2 record in those five games, but this decline in Kamara's ability to make opponents miss is about to become of paramount importance on Monday night . The design of the Colts ' defense encourages opponents to make short throws to check-down options, counting on their linebackers and safeties to The question for the Saints will be how their run defense holds up without two of their best defensive linemen. They still have Cameron Jordan, David Onyemata, and Malcom Brown, but players like Shy Tuttle, Trey Hendrickson, and Mario Edwards will be thrust into

On Thanksgiving night in Atlanta, the Saints surrendered two touchdowns in a minute and a half late in the fourth quarter. However, New Orleans was still able to win all of these games, and only two of them (Texans and Panthers) required any sort of game-winning heroics from Brees and the offense. The Colts ' three-game losing streak has them in danger of completely falling out of playoff contention. Indianapolis has struggled on offense and not been able to make the plays necessary to win close games late. With the losses and injuries mounting, one has to question how much resolve the Colts

Somehow, the second-year superstar needs to find a way to rally his defense to play the best game of the season. If that doesn’t happen, chances are, the Colts will lose and see their playoff dreams die.

How much will loss of Marcus Davenport hurt Saints?

In his second year, Marcus Davenport was coming on strong for the Saints. Last year’s first-round pick out of Texas-San Antonio had six sacks, five tackles for a loss and three forced fumbles. And with that production came an added benefit, which is that veteran Cameron Jordan was getting more one-on-one opportunities on the other side.

Unfortunately, the second-year Saints star edge rusher suffered a foot injury last weekend against the San Francisco 49ers. He’s out the rest of the season. It’s going to be interesting to see who, if anyone, can step up in Davenport’s stead this Monday night — not to mention the rest of the way.

Monday Night Football heads down to the Big Easy as the Indianapolis Colts face the New Orleans Saints in a clash of two teams trending in opposite directions.

Football bettors over at FanDuel are solidly behind the Saints on Monday night . On points spread bets, 70 percent are willing to lay the points, and those wagers represent 81 percent of the money.

Can anyone slow down Michael Thomas?

Few teams have slowed down Michael Thomas, who’s again threatening an NFL record. With 121 catches already, Thomas has the most receptions in a team’s first 13 games in NFL history, per NFL.com. With that in mind, he is very much in play to break Marvin Harrison’s record of 143 receptions (2002) in a single season.

So, it goes without saying that the Colts will have a much better chance of winning Monday night if they can find a way to keep Thomas from having a field day.

Can Jacoby Brissett catch fire?

There are many reasons the Colts are nine-point road dogs for this coming “Monday Night Football” matchup against the Saints. One of the biggest is that Drew Brees is much more dependable than Jacoby Brissett.

In fact, after a very nice start to the season, Brissett has cooled off in a big way, averaging just under 212 passing yards per game in his last four while throwing just four touchdowns with three interceptions.

Another mediocre outing by Brissett will almost certainly doom the Colts. Can he step up his game? Getting Hilton back would help for sure.
