The Colts have been waiting all year long to put together a complete game, and they finally did today against the Bills.
The Colts got their second win of the season today, beating the hapless Bills 37-5. They put together a complete game for the first time all year, and they showcased their potential. Both the offense and defense played well.
On offense, the Colts struggled in the first quarter. They were held scoreless, and had some issues moving the ball. But that changed in the second quarter. Marlon Mack was fantastic all game, and the Colts scored 24 points in the second quarter.
The defense came up big too. Mike Mitchell had a fantastic game, forcing a fumble and coming up with an interception. The defense forced a total of four turnovers. They did a great job playing against Derek Anderson, who struggled mightily all day.
Mack was very good. He played well last week against the Jets, and the coaching staff noticed. They made a concerted effort to give him the ball early and often. He delivered, running for over 100 yards. He should continue to get the ball the rest of the season.
The offensive line played pretty well as well, except for on errant Ryan Kelly snap that resulted in a safety. They were able to keep Andrew Luck clean in the pocket. He was not sacked at all either. He also had a couple of plays where he extended the play to get first downs and score a touchdown.
This win could help the Colts keep themselves in the division conversation. They are still only two games back of first place in the division. They also face a pretty manageable schedule the next few games. There is still hope in Indy for some post-season play.
