Colts vs. Titans week 17: Offensive post-game grades
The Colts were able to play well enough to win the game last night against the Titans 33-17. The offense was able to do enough to win the game though.
For most of the game, the Colts were the only one stopping themselves. They had silly penalties and stupid turnovers. But the offense did enough to win the game and advance their season. Here is how each unit on the offense played last night.
The only reason this isn’t an A is because of two terrible throws Luck had early on. He threw a pick six to give the Titans life in the first quarter. He also threw another ball that should’ve been picked. But he still ended up throwing three touchdown passes and was able to move the ball well.
Again, this grade would’ve been higher if not for a Marlon Mack fumble. But he still was great last night, running for 119 yards on 25 carries. Jordan Wilkins also added 18 yards, and Nyheim Hines was effective in the passing game. Good night for the running backs.
The offensive line did a good job keeping Luck upright most of the night, only allowing one sack. But they had several penalties that killed the momentum of drives and, in some cases, took points off the board. Mark Glowinksi in particular had a rough game, getting called for three penalties.
Eric Ebron continued his domination, having 4 catches for 60 yards and a touchdown. Mo Allie-Cox also caught a ball for 21 yards, and Ryan Hewitt also caught a touchdown pass. They all did well blocking in the run game as well. Extremely productive night for this unit.
T.Y. Hilton was solid as ever, even though he still is clearly hampered by his ankle injury. Dontrelle Inman did a good as well, and he has emerged as the number two receiver on this team. Chester Rogers had some good plays as well. Just solid play from this unit overall.
The offense was only stopping themselves on Sunday night. When they run at full capacity, they are almost impossible to stop.
