The two halves of this game could not have been more different but in the end the Frank Reich led Colts came away with a division win. It was another very good showing from the offensive line in pass protection but short of one long run from Jordan Wilkins, the Colts struggled to find room to run against a very strong Jaguars defensive front. I was complaining about the nature of the win to one of my friends (who happens to be a Chiefs fan) and he reminded me that a division win is always good, even if the win was ugly.
Each week, I look to break down two of the best or worst plays or situations from the previous game, but I rely on the help of the Stampede Blue community to decide what plays should be given a closer look as I hope to explain what happened in greater detail than the broadcasters can. Often you’ll hear “how did that guy get so open?” and I hope to be able to answer that question for Colts fans this season.
My vote this week will be for Donte Moncrief's long touchdown catch early in the game. The Colts defense has generally been good at preventing huge explosive plays from their opponents but the former Colt was seemingly able to beat half the defense for six points and I would like to try to understand the massive failure that occurred. Let me know in the comments what plays you would like to see broken down!
