3 Colts responsible for Week 18 disaster in Jacksonville
Carson Wentz is responsible for Colts disaster
All season, question marks have surrounded Carson Wentz, as many wondered if he would be able to make big plays for Indianapolis with the game on the line. After his last two performances, off-season discourse isn’t going to be kind to Wentz.
It’s already been established that the offensive line didn’t make Sunday’s game easy for Wentz, but he also had his fair share of mishaps.
Wentz held the ball a lot, took some unnecessary sacks, missed throws, and threw an ugly interception.
With Taylor being contained, this was the perfect opportunity for Wentz to step up and be the star of Indy’s offense. Going against a mediocre Jaguars defense, Wentz could have used this moment to shine and give doubters confidence entering the postseason.
Instead, Wentz finished the game completing 17-of-29 passes for 185 yards, one touchdown, and the interception. He had plays throughout the game where he made big throws that flashed promise, but ultimately, his inconsistency contributed to the Colts’ failure.
That has always been the fear with Wentz, as he’s demonstrated this inconsistency throughout his first season in Indianapolis. At times he makes plays that make Indy look unbeatable, other times he makes decisions that leave viewers saying the Colts will need to search for a replacement.
With what Wentz put on tape for his final performance, this will be the conversation until Indianapolis kicks off next season.
