3 Colts who helped save season in massive win over Buffalo
2. Colts safety George Odum
In the first quarter, when Indianapolis was leading just 7-0, the Bills were looking to tie the game up on their first possession. Josh Allen threw the ball deep, but instead of a teammate, he found Colts safety George Odum.
Odum jumped the receiver, intercepted the pass, returned it 22 yards, and created a momentum shift on the Colts’ sideline that they held onto until the end of the game.
The interception set up Indianapolis for their second touchdown drive of the first quarter. Buffalo hasn’t given up a single touchdown in the first quarter over the last 16 games, including playoffs. So when they found themselves down 14-0, they were shell-shocked.
Odum’s aggressive play set the tone for the Indianapolis defense that would hold the Bills to just 15 points, while also forcing three turnovers.
So what the he saw his second momentum-grabbing interception overturned? One turned out to be enough. Odum was all over the field on Sunday, making a massive difference in rainy conditions in Buffalo.
Sorry, Josh Allen’s MVP case. Maybe our guy can step in and swipe it?
