The Colts lose another second-half lead in a game where the color rush uniforms were the clear highlight of the night

The Indianapolis Colts again showed us that they have almost zero ability to hold a lead in the second half of a game. The Colts took a 10-7 lead into the locker room and took the ball first coming out of halftime. Up 13-7, via an Adam Vinatieri field goal, after a 12-play drive to open the second half was all that the Colts could muster as the Denver Broncos put up 18 points with Brock Osweiler under center to put the Colts out of their misery.

The Colts, for the 8th time this season, accumulated less than 200 net passing yards and for the second time this season — in back to back weeks no less — allowed more than 200 rushing yards failing to show their improved rush defense which had been their calling card to this point in the season.

The Colts suffered some injuries, with Brandon Williams appearing to be the most serious, which has also been the norm for the team this season. More than anything the Colts put together one of their worst performances against a team who was likely the worst remaining squad on their schedule.

I talk about the good and bad — much more of the latter — from the Colts Week 15 performance and where some of their issues that continue to pop up are originating. With 2 weeks left in the regular season, the Colts are making it awful difficult for the team’s fans to continue to buy in. Chris Ballard will have to find a way to spark even more interest than he did in the offseason between now and training camp for the 2018 season.
