Colts: 3 insane moments that doomed Indy’s wild Week 5 loss in Baltimore
By Adam Weinrib
2. Jack Doyle Flop Karma
It’s always the moments you most suspect might be exciting that turn out to be the most heartbreaking.
On the final drive of regulation, facing a 2nd & 20 with under 20 seconds remaining, tight end Jack Doyle did what he thought he had to do to give Indy any sort of a chance to cross into field goal range. With Tavon Young on the ground, Doyle poked the bear, then sold the hell out of a retaliation hit…and baited some flag-happy referees into a game-bending unnecessary roughness call. After he started the whole thing.
Unfortunately, the Football Gods, firmly on Baltimore’s side the entire fourth quarter, saw right through the charade.
The resulting karma from Doyle’s dive threw the drive off its axis. Blankenship got a chance at the game-winner, but came up well short, his right foot sending a knuckleball several yards wide of the uprights.
Once the Colts let the Ravens out of their clutches there — on a chance they never should’ve had anyway — Baltimore was never going tp hand it back to them.
