Colts vs. Ravens offense Post-game Grades
The Colts played against the Ravens last night, falling 20-19. Here is how some of the players on offense spared.
Last night was a very interesting game. There was a lot to watch and a lot of players to keep an eye on. The offense didn’t look great overall for the Colts, but they had their moments. Here are the grades for some of the units last night.
Andrew Luck did not have his finest outing. He only threw for 50 yards, and had a horrendous interception in the red zone. Luck had to move around in the pocket too which he did fine. He did take a sack when he held onto the ball for too long however.
Backup Jacoby Brissett looked pretty good. He continued to show off his strong arm and his ability to make plays with his legs. Philip Walker threw a terrible pick in the fourth quarter that was probably the worst throw of the night from anyone. Brissett is the sole reason the grade is this high.
Christine Michael had some decent runs early and some late in the contest. Jordan Wilkins had a really nice drive in the first half, and then proceeded to fumble the ball in the end zone. Nyheim Hines fumbled on a kickoff and almost muffed another punt. Bad night for the unit overall.
The tackles were putrid on the first unit, allowing two sacks of Andrew Luck. They didn’t get much better in the second unit. Le’Raven Clark and Braden Smith have disappointed. Smith is still just a rookie, but Clark might be on his way out of Indy if he doesn’t step up.
Ryan Grant continues to be a ghost. He dropped a critical third down pass in this game and hasn’t shown up all preseason. Zach Pascal had a drop and almost fumbled before redeeming himself with a TD catch. Reece Fountain had two drops in a row as well. Receivers need to be better.
Jack Doyle was good once again and continues to be the most reliable Colt on the offense. He had several good catches early on in this game. Eric Ebron actually played in this game and had a couple of catches as well.
The Colts play again on Saturday. Most of the starters will play into the second half, so hopefully there is improvement shown.
