After a painful loss to the Baltimore Ravens last Monday night, the Indianapolis Colts earned their second win of the season by dominating the Houston Texans 31-3 Sunday afternoon.

The team’s snap counts help to partially tell the story of how Indy was able to earn a much-needed win against its division rival.

Offense:

  • QB Carson Wentz, 100%
  • WR Michael Pittman Jr., 96%
  • WR Zach Pascal, 85%
  • TE Jack Doyle, 65%
  • TE Mo Alie-Cox, 50%
  • WR T.Y. Hilton, 50%
  • RB Jonathan Taylor, 65%
  • RB Nyheim Hines, 23%
  • RB Marlon Mack, 19%
  • WR Parris Campbell, 10%
  • TE Kylen Granson, 8%

Key contributors:

Carson Wentz, T.Y. Hilton and Jonathan Taylor were three of Indy’s top contributors in Sunday’s win. Wentz tossed 2 passing touchdowns in back-to-back games. Hilton had 4 catches for 80 yards, including a 52-yard reception and Taylor dominated for a second straight game, rushing for 145 total yards and 2 touchdowns.

Let’s not forget about Parris Campbell, who, despite only playing 10% of the team’s offensive snaps due to injury, hauled in a 51-yard touchdown and gave the Colts an early 7-0 lead.

Overall, we saw the offense that many fans had been expecting to see for weeks now. An aggressive, over-the-top and explosive unit which can beat an opposing defense in a multitude of ways.

Defense:

  • LB Bobby Okereke, 100%
  • FS Julian Blackmon, 100%
  • CB Kenny Moore, 100%
  • SS Khari Willis, 97%
  • CB Xavier Rhodes, 97%
  • Linebacker Darius Leonard, 89%
  • DT DeForest Buckner, 71%
  • DE Tyquan Lewis, 67%
  • DE Al-Quadin Muhammad, 65%
  • DE Kwity Paye, 59%
  • DT Grover Stewart, 57%
  • CB Rock Ya-Sin, 55%
  • CB Isaiah Rodgers, 29%
  • DT Taylor Stallworth, 37%
  • DE Isaac Rochell, 27%
  • LB Zaire Franklin, 16%
  • LB E.J. Speed, 11%
  • DE Ben Banogu, 9%
  • FS George Odum, 3%

Key contributors:

Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner applied pressure all afternoon long, including sacking rookie QB Davis Mills once. Indy’s secondary, which almost entirely healthy for the first time in weeks, forced Mills into making several errant throws and intercepted him twice as well.

Cornerbacks Isaiah Rodgers and Kenny Moore were excellent in coverage, and, along with Linebacker Darius Leonard, helped hold Houston to just 3 total points in Week 6. Sunday’s defensive performance was far and away the Colts’ best of the season.
