The Indianapolis Colts went into Sunday’s game on the back of a great division win, having beaten the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts came up against a strong team this week in the Houston Texans who had just been heavily beaten by the Baltimore Ravens in the previous week. There were strong showings during the 20-17 loss, and a few poor ones, as well.
Here’s the stock report for week 12:
Kenny Moore II was all over the field against the Texans. He is such a versatile defender that defensive co-ordiator Matt Eberflus uses him in a variety of ways whether in coverage or at the line of scrimmage blitzing. Moore has been great all year and managed to add another interception to his tally this year. He did let a big play to Will Fuller but outside of that his play was good.
Jonathan Williams had to fill the big shoes of starting running back Marlon Mack again this week and he did not disappoint. Williams gashed through the Texans for 106 yards and a touchdown. Williams has proved the last two week that he is a viable backup to Williams, can start in a pinch and definitely belongs on this roster. He will have another start next week in place of Mack against the Titans defense.
Jacoby Brissett had a very disappointing showing. He produced a poor showing again against the Texans after a below par showing against the Jaguars. Brissett only managed 129 yards and a rushing touchdown but that doesn’t tell the full story. Brissett was poor, constantly running out of clean pockets and checking down which led to the vertical passing game suffered massively. Is it time to be questioning whether Jacoby Brissett is the right man to quarterback the team going forward.
TY Hilton was coming off a calf inujry that had kept him out the last few games. He was going up against a team he has owned since coming into the league in the Texans. However, he only managed to put together 3 catches on 6 targets for just 18 yards. Hilton was clearly limited due to his calf injury and was nowhere near typical Hilton dropping a couple passes. Hilton needs a bounce back performance against the Titans and also to recover fully.
