Colts’ Philip Rivers Has Considered Week 17 vs. Jaguars Could Be His Final Game | Bleacher Report


#Gene J. #Puskar/Associated #Press

The #Indianapolis #Colts need some help to reach the playoffs, regardless of whether they defeat the #Jacksonville #Jaguars.

#That means their season could come to a close #Sunday, and veteran quarterback #Philip #Rivers acknowledged #Wednesday that it could be his last game ever:

#Here are the #Colts’ playoff scenarios heading into #Week 17:

  • #Win/tie and #Titans loss (wins AFC #South)
  • #Win and #Titans loss/tie (wins AFC #South)
  • #Win and #Ravens loss/tie (clinches wild-card berth)
  • #Win and #Browns loss/tie (clinches wild-card berth)
  • #Win and #Dolphins loss/tie (clinches wild-card berth)
  • #Tie and #Ravens, #Browns or #Dolphins loss (clinches wild-card berth)

#Rivers, 39, has had a solid season for the #Colts, throwing for 4,005 yards, 23 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while completing 68.3 percent of his passes.

#He has solidified the #Colts’ quarterback position after they endured an up-and-down year with #Jacoby #Brissett last season, but they will eventually need to add a franchise player at quarterback. (#Perhaps a #Frank #Reich reunion with #Carson #Wentz would make sense?)

#Until then, the 10-5 #Colts have a real chance of making the postseason if they get some help. #Rivers told reporters #Wednesday that he’d be watching the results trickle in from around the league before the team’s 4:25 p.m. ET start #Sunday:

“#My normal mode when we play the 4 o’clock game, I kind of flip through the #Sunday #Ticket on my phone. #So to say I won’t be doing that will be a lie. I won’t be consumed with it, but I’ll be aware. #To try to pretend like you’re not going to know the outcome of those games is probably unrealistic. #But I don’t think it needs to consume our locker room.”

#All the #Colts can do is handle their business against the #Jags, in a game that could possibly be #Rivers’ last.
