Wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been Allen's top target with eight receiving touchdowns and 1,535 yards totaled. 

The Colts enter Saturday's matchup having limited opponents to 22.6 points per game during the regular season. Offensively, veteran quarterback Philip Rivers has tallied 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on 68.0% completion.
