The Colts have been looking for pass-rush help this year with Robert Mathis gone, and they found it in Week 17.
Rookie outside linebacker Jonathan Newsome was named AFC defensive player of the week after notching a pair of sacks agains the Titans.
It was Newsome’s first career start (for an injured Broern Werner), and he made it a good one. He had eight tackles and forced a fumble as well.
The fifth-round pick from Ball State led the team with 6.5 sacks this year, second-most among rookies.
