37-3. The Colts hadn’t topped 30 points since last December’s memorable comeback over the Detroit Lions, but today, they did it in style. Against what may be a historically bad team in the Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis did exactly what they needed to do: dominate.
The Colts rolled up 437 yards of offense, getting big plays from Coby Fleener, Reggie Wayne, and, yes, Donald Brown, while the defense steamrolled Jacksonville (as well they should have). The Jags finished with just 205 yards. QB Blaine Gabbert went 17-32 for 165 yards and three interceptions with a QB rating of 30.6, while the Colts held Jaguar running backs to 2.2 yards per carry (18 for 40 yards).
Andrew Luck shook off a rough start for a brilliant outing, 260 yards, 2 touchdowns, and a pick with a much healthier average of 7.3 yards per pass (4.6 last week) and a 90 QB rating. A couple big plays from Andrew Luck and Donald Brown rescued an otherwise anemic rushing attack, taking the team from 24 carries for 63 yards and 2.6 ypc to 29/154/5.3.
It was utter domination. Anything less than a good game against such a troubled team would have been cause for concern – perhaps serious concern – and the Colts answered the bell today, taking it to Jacksonville, and keeping their foot on the gas for the blowout everyone expected.no comments no comments
