Colts vs. Redskins: Second Half Open Thread

New, comments

Here's your open thread for the second half of the game between the Colts and the Redskins.

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

It's halftime in Indianapolis and the Colts lead the Redskins 21-10 at the break.  The Colts hold a 247-92 edge in terms of total yards.  The Colts are 3-4 on third down while the Redskins are just 1-7.  But the Colts have turned the ball over three times, killing three different drives, and that's the reason for the score being only an 11-point game.  Credit to the defense for allowing a combined three points off of those three turnovers.

Andrew Luck and the offense overcame two turnovers in the first four offensive plays to put up 21 points behind two touchdown passes from Luck and a 49-yard touchdown scamper from Boom Herron - who has 79 yards rushing but a big fumble as well.  T.Y. Hilton caught 5 passes for 62 yards and a score while Coby Fleener caught 3 passes for 54 yards and a score - as well a as huge drop.

Ultimately, the Colts hold the edge in most categories other than turnover margin, and that's the big reason why they're only up 11 at the half and not more.  There's still 30 more minutes left to play in this one, so consider this your open thread for the second half of the game between the Colts and the Redskins.
