Regarding Smith this past Sunday, the Colts’ 24 year old bookend received a +90.2 grade overall—which was highlighted by a +89.9 run blocking grade and a +84.3 pass blocking grade.

Smith also allowed 0 total QB pressures and did not commit any penalties.

He was instrumental in the Colts’ running backs eclipsing 100 total rushing yards against the Houston Texans.

However, he also really shined in pass protection—especially against All-Pro J.J. Watt:

Last, but certainly not least, was Colts’ versatile slot cornerback Kenny Moore, who continued to make his presence felt in the Indianapolis secondary.

Against the Texans, Moore finished with the Colts’ second most tackles, 8 tackles (6 solo), while also adding 3 pass deflections and an interception—as he somehow wrestled the football away from injured Texans wideout Brandin Cooks late in the third quarter:

Per PFF, Moore earned a +89.9 overall grade for his strong performance on Sunday versus Houston—as he received a +91.2 coverage and +82.4 tackling grade respectively.

Moore allowed a mere 44.9 passer rating when targeted by Texans’ star quarterback Deshaun Watson in coverage for the Colts primarily manning the slot—which was impressive to say the least.

Both Smith and Moore are two of the Colts’ top young players and key cogs for the franchise’s core both now and for the foreseeable future.

Albeit on opposite sides of the football, each standout had a great performance on Sunday during the Colts nail biting win and were very worthy of such PFF weekly recognition.
