3 reasons Philip Rivers makes the Colts a legit contender

Here's why Philip Rivers makes the Indianapolis Colts a legit contender again.

Chargers, Philip Rivers

After his long run as the Chargers’ starting quarterback came to a fairly amicable end, Philip Rivers landed with the Indianapolis Colts on a one-year, $25 million deal.

The sudden retirement of Andrew Luck last August pushed Jacoby Brissett into the starting lineup for Indianapolis. The team started 5-2, as Brissett was among the league leaders in touchdown passes through Week 4, but his knee injury against the Steelers in Week 9 was a turning point. Brissett missed just one full game, but was clearly diminished trying to play through the injury. The Colts lost five of their last six games to finish 7-9.

Even at 38 years old, Rivers seems to have plenty left. Here’s why he’ll make the Colts into a legitimate contender in 2020.

  1. Rivers will be great! The problem last year with the Chargers was their very weak offensive line, especially at both tackle positions. Now, he’s got an excellent OLine in front of him. Watch out! The WR corps needs more help (good slot receiver), plus another good Tight End. The Colts should be a great team. Plus Rivers will have a positive fan base rooting for him. LA sucks.
