Colts offensive lineman Quenton Nelson’s mic’d up highlights from Week 2 against Minnesota are awesome.

With the Indianapolis Colts currently preparing to take on the New York Jets on Sunday, the top highlights from their Week 2 victory over Minnesota are beginning to make their way to social media.

Simply put, Indy had no issues disposing of the Vikings, as both sides of the ball had strong performances. The main takeaway among fans was how the defense rebounded from their woeful showing to open the season against Jacksonville, and understandably so.

However, the offense also deserves its fair share of the record, after putting 28 points up on the scoreboard against a (supposedly) star-studded defensive unit. The biggest takeaway was obviously the success of the running game, and that all starts with the big fellas up front.

The Colts offensive line was impenetrable all game long and, as always, Quenton Nelson led the way with yet another dominant display at right guard. What we didn’t know, however, was that the All-Pro stud was mic’d up for the clash and the highlights are awesome.

Seriously, how can you not love this guy?

As crazy as it sounds, Nelson picking up his tackled teammates and congratulating them after touchdowns and big gains doesn’t prove that he’s one of the nicest players in the entire NFL. What confirms that is the former No. 6 overall pick apologizing to members of the Vikings defense after taking two of them out of the play in one sequence.

Don’t get it twisted, either: Nelson has PLENTY of dog in him. Our favorite parts of this highlight reel came when he dismissed a Minnesota defender who said he almost knocked the ball out of running back Nyheim Hines’ hand, and when he told a Vikings defensive lineman to “get off the block” and “stop (expletive)” after he destroyed him in protection.

You simply get the best of both worlds with Nelson on a weekly basis, and that’s precisely what makes him a favorite among Colts fans. The term “must-see” is used extremely loosely these days, but this clip of the Notre Dame product undoubtedly falls under that description.

What a likable player and guy Nelson is, man.
