First Half:  Colts came out with a nine plays, 70 yards drive-TD. Second possession- 9 plays, 75 yds. -TD. Third possession INT. Fourth possession- 7 plays, 65 yds.-TD.

Second Half: Punt, punt, punt, punt. Will this work in the next three games if they get there?

They played the score, and I was glad they did, especially after the tipped INT tonight and the pick 6 vs. Tennessee.

 

Would they do the same vs. KC, NE or New Orleans?  Not sure, but give me a 3 TD lead and I'll worry about it later.

Soft in pass coverage , or not, that was a darn good defense we played with a legend of a coach.

 I think it was a combination of them blitzing and adjusting, our offense trying to keep clock moving with a gealthy lead, and Watson's legs.

  I think it was an excellent gameplan on both sides.  Even when we werent scoring and punting, we were still controlling the pace and field position i felt.

  We scored first, established favorable field position, and played solid defense.  I really like what I'm seeing.  Very excited to see how we stack up against an explosive team in a tough environment.

LOVE this team

That’s how I felt and the Colts has confidence in their D that’s for sure.  They had confidence in my opinion that it would take the Texans a long time to score, which it did.  At the end of the game it paid off as well with Mack shredding them up.  I do think they could’ve extended some of the drives by getting Hines involved though.  I feel he’s their best pass catching back.

There were a couple of drops as well which killed momentum but the good part was that we didn’t need that momentum so there was no urgency from the offense.

 

I think if the Texans were closer then Luck gets the offense moving like he normally does when it matters.

you also have to look at the fact that this was a third meeting with our division rival who pretty much knew what we capable of throwing at them so it could also explain the second half collapse. The first half scores probably came off of our scripted plays which caught the Texans off early

Reich said it was execution rather the conservative play. I tend to agree, as Luck did throw a few stinkers and there were a few drops. That said, if the chips were down, I think we would have moved the chains better. 

 

The inch perfect long throw to Hilton down the sideline mid 2nd half was the clincher for me. Although we punted, it pinned them back and took time off the clock. Fantastic throw and catch. What's new.

 

Tears of a Clowney, eh......

    • Not a lot to go off of. Looks like Addison was trying to catch Wentz at the end. 
    • Titans have 1 and done in the playoffs written all over them with all the key injuries they are having now. Who knows about Henry, he may not even come back and if he does he will be rusty. Jones has been injured as well and a complete fail for them too. The AFC is full of parity and it boils down to which teams will be the healthiest at the end of the season. Right now the Colts are pretty healthy luckily. Leonard and Nelson have small nagging injuries but they are still playing and producing. Even TY is healthy.
    • Seems like he got pushed and stumbles into him. Definitely warrants the penalty, but I don't think it should have a fine.
    • I think the only way we win this game is to be at least +7 points off turnovers.   I don’t have high hopes to win because the cardiac colts haven’t proven to be consistent in their game plan (thanks frank), and execution on the field.   I was 50/50 for the buffalo game because I figured buffalo has faltered a fair bit but I don’t see the bucs faltering as much especially against our inconsistency on defense.   I sure hope we win of course and I’ll be more ecstatic than anyone if they do!
    • First off,  their is no such thing as a Z play.   That's a position.   It used to be called a flanker.  An off ball receiver.    Any way Ballard drafted him to be a chain mover.  He has said as much.   No one drafts a running back expecting him to break off 40 yard runs.   That is a theory you came up with on your own,  and wrong.    Ballard wanted him because he is versatile and can get a 4th and 1.   He is capable of breaking off a long one and move the pile in short yardage.   Congrats on being wrong again
