AFC South: End of September Report

3 of 4

Indianapolis Colts (1-2): C

Losing week one at home against the Detroit Lions was inexcusable for them. After scoring a late touchdown to go up 35-34, they allowed Matthew Stafford to go down the field and set up the go ahead field goal (then the Lions added a safety on the kickoff lateralpalooza).

On the positive side, Andrew Luck has thrown six touchdowns to just two interceptions so far. So reports of his death seem to be greatly exaggerated, as I suspected. Frank Gore is still their lead back and he is just average at best–averaging just 3.9 yards per carry so far this season. But T.Y. Hilton seems to be back in top form, averaging 98 receiving yards per game.

Their defense still has not improved at all (just like the last ten years or so), allowing 95 points over the first three games. They are 24th in total yards allowed and second to last in points. This team will be involved in a ton of shootouts…again.
