2. Zack Moss continued to be a productive runner for Colts
Zack Moss returned to the lineup last week and was an immediate impact player, carrying the ball 18 times for 88 yards and one touchdown. In Week 3, Moss had an even better day, running the ball 30 times for 122 yards, and catching two passes for 23 yards and one touchdown.
Because of Moss, and the offensive line, the run game is alive and well in Indianapolis. The Colts couldn't even benefit from the quarterback run, as Anthony Richardson is still in concussion protocol, and they still ran the ball 35 times for 139 yards, four yards a carry.
With Moss running the ball as well as he is, things will get interesting in a week, when star running back Jonathan Taylor is eligible to be activated off the PUP list next Monday. Either Taylor will return to the lineup and the Colts will have one of the league’s best backfields, or Indy may be willing to part with Taylor, considering how well Zack Moss is running the ball.
The Colts have another week before they have to make a decision, which also means another week for Zack Moss to continue to dominate on the ground.
