The Indianapolis Colts came into Sunday’s matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars holding the same record and needing to prove quite a bit on both sides of the ball. The offense needed to prove they could take it to a top passing defense, and the defense needed to prove they could stop the run and eliminate any big play situations.
The Colts did both of those for spells, but ultimately this game was a mixed bag. The Colts dominated offensively in the first half, but could not sustain drives in the second and were shut out. Defensively the Colts allowed big plays, but continued to be a unit that could make a play to change the course of the game.
Today, Matt Danely will dive into everything that we saw in Sunday’s first meeting of the two teams, look at what the team did really well, who stepped up to the challenge, and also how the Colts nearly lost the game and who needs to become more of a piece of the solution if the Colts are going to make a legitimate impression throughout the back stretch of the season.
Among the topics discussed today are:
- The Colts running game/run defense
- Explosive plays earned and allowed
- Frank Reich’s challenge in the second half of the season
- Tyquan Lewis’ first game coming off of IR
- How do the Colts see T.Y. Hilton’s future role shaking out?
- Colts linebackers
- Kenny Moore becoming vital now, and a piece for the future
- Second half mistakes that stalled offense
- How the offense set up big plays
- Andrew Luck and his offensive line
