It’s time to focus on Week 17 for the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders play at the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Kickoff is at 10 a.m. PT. Let’s take a quick look at the Colts:

The Colts are 9-6 after winning 22-16 at the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night. The have won three games in a row and six of their last seven games.

Big weapon:
Indianapolis running back Johnathan Taylor is leading the NFL with 1,626 rushing yards. He is an NFL MVP candidate. The Raiders must find a way to contain him

First time against Wentz:
This will be the Raiders’ first time facing quarterback Carson Wentz. He was hurt when the Raiders played his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, in 2017.

COVID watch:
Colts’ stars, guard Quenton Nelson and linebacker Darius Leonard are on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list. They may miss this game, which would be huge.

Last meeting:
The Colts beat the Raiders 44-27 in Las Vegas in Week 14 last year. The Raiders fired defensive coordinator Paul Guenther hours later.
