Poll: Impact plays from Colts vs. Bengals

New, comments

The Colts weren't able to get Frank Reich his first win as a head coach and the game ended in the most disappointing way possible, but all in all, there is a lot to be encouraged by. At times, the Colts seemed to move the ball at will and the defense had moments where they looked like an average NFL defense, which isn't a high bar, but the defense was better than I expected regardless of the final score.

Each week, I will look to break down two of the best or worst plays from the previous game, but I'll need your help deciding 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 the AJ Green TD catch that beat Malik Hooker, but your votes will ultimately decide. There are plenty of good candidates, some I've listed and others I have probably overlooked. Joe Mixon had a big day running and receiving and there were a few big time throws from Andy Dalton. Any two plays — offense or defense, or special teams if it was a truly great or awful play — everything is on the table. Seeing how Frank Reich looks to attack different defenses and how teams are looking attack the Colts new zone based defense will be the most interesting aspect of this for me.

I will start breaking the plays down as soon as the NFL releases the All-22 film on Gamepass. Let me know in the comments what you hope to see!
