Indianapolis Colts (1-1)
The Colts’ loss to the Miami Dolphins (1-1) was one of the bigger surprises of the second week of the season. I sure didn’t see a loss like this coming for the Colts, especially to the Dolphins by a 24-20 score.

I think the Colts are a better team than scoring 20 points against any team. Colts boss Jim Irsay said earlier he demanded quarterback Andrew Luck have better protection, well the offensive line must have missed that memo or don’t have Twitter, but he was sacked three times, so I don’t know if that meets his expectations of not.

The defensive backs of the Colts must get better because they couldn’t stop Mike Wallace Sunday (9 receptions, 115 yards) or Ryan Tannehill who had 319 passing yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. Tannehill was 23-of-34.

At least Luck had a productive game with 321 yards on 25 completions (43 attempts) with one touchdown and one interception. One part of the offense that could do a little better next game is their rushing attack with Ahmad Bradshaw leading with 65 yards on 15 carries (one touchdown). Luck was the second leading rusher with four rushes for 38 yards.

I just believe the Colts are a better team that how they played this past Sunday.
