Each week during the season, I will be walking through the data from the previous Colts game analyzing the numbers to form a sort of “what happened” narrative as well as comparing the Colts against all other teams in the league. For a glossary of the stats listed, reference Stats for the 2019 Season. Thanks to Pro Football Reference, NFL.com and the nflSCrapR project for being awesome sources of weekly data.
Drinking during the 4th quarter for enjoyment and not necessity? Weird.
Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Indianapolis Colts had their first
greater than 1 score blowout win of the season and it was a joy to watch.
Sacks killed 3 drives that averaged 12 yards, but there isn’t much other bad news.
One concern: our 3rd down conversion rate which used to be best in the league has regressed to just average.
As long as the overall conversion rate is good then that doesn’t matter too much but I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
That’s just crazy good.
CONCLUSION AND NEXT MATCH-UP
On the year, Football Outsiders ranks the Colts offense 17th in DVOA (20th pass, 7th rush). This was a great offensive effort to get a lagging offense back on track.
