The Colts' 27-6 win over the Browns last Saturday night was an all-around beat down, with both the Indianapolis offensive and defensive units dominating throughout the game. The first-team defense pitched a shut-out, and Andrew Luck had little trouble moving the offense down the field, scoring 17 points and being within five yards of another touchdown before a dropped pass led to an unlucky interception.
A lot of positive came out of the game, and that's what we'll be focusing on for most of the week prior to the Colts' Thursday night matchup against the Bengals.
But, before we get to that, we're going to talk about the biggest negative to come out of Saturday's win: the fiasco also known as the offensive line. While injuries to Mike McGlynn and Anthony Castonzo magnified issues, the line still noticeably struggled against Cleveland, especially right tackle Gosder Cherilus (yes, I'm aware the title says Winston Justice, but the lulz factor here was too good to change it).
