Colts survive Dolphins, win their fifth straight
It wasn’t pretty, but the Colts were able to get the job done. They won 27-24, and gave the team their fifth straight win.
The game had some wild swings. There were turnovers on three consecutive plays to end the first half. The Colts’ defense looked like they were going to crumble under the pressure. But the resolve of the team came out in the end, and they pulled it out late.
Indianapolis beat Miami 27-24 on a game winning field goal by Adam Vinatieri as time expired. That was after the defense had two straight three and outs. That was the great thing about that win. The defense stepped up after they had been a mess the rest of the game.
Andrew Luck didn’t play his best game either. He had two interceptions on consecutive throws in the first half, and was under pressure a lot of the game. His sackless streak ended today at five games. But he was only sacked once and the o-line did just enough to keep him upright.
The running game was great for the Colts as well. Marlon Mack ran well until he was forced out with a concussion. Nyheim Hines picked up the slack at the end of the game. The running game allowed the Colts to move the ball down the field consistently.
This was a huge win for the Colts. It keeps them tied for the second wild card spot and gives them five straight. They have built up momentum and are a scary team to face right now. Even though they didn’t play their best game, they still found a way to win.
Because of that fact, everyone should be afraid to face the Colts moving forward. They are a dangerous team who just keeps on winning.
