Jacoby Brissett’s big day leads Indy past Texans for AFC South lead

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts kept insisting Jacoby Brissett could win games with his arm.

On Sunday, he showed everyone else what the team knew all along.

With Indy’s suddenly strong running game essentially grounded, Brissett shouldered the burden by throwing for 326 yards and a career-high four touchdowns to lead the Colts past Houston 30-23 to retake the AFC South lead.

“It just says he’s legit, he’s the man,” coach Frank Reich. “We believed that from Day One and we’ve never wavered in our conviction or our faith in Jacoby. But he knows he’s still got to prove it.
