3. Feed Zack Moss

The biggest takeaway from the win against the Baltimore Ravens was that Zack Moss can absolutely ball. The former Bills running back took 30 carries for 122 yards averaging just over four yards a carry, the week before in the Texans game he averaged just under five yards per carry.

Moss has been a great bright spot in the absence of Jonathan Taylor and has been looked upon to carry the load after Deon Jackson did not perform and is now off the team for Trey Sermon. Moss almost singlehandedly won the Colts a game last week, and he may just do it again.

A huge play he made was a big receiving touchdown where he just went up and got a big-time catch and took it to score, so finding him in the receiving game more will be in the cards as well. It will be interesting to see how him and Anthony Richardson connect after a week absence and Moss playing well with Minshew.

But riding the hot hand is so important when it comes to the NFL and running backs, keeping that momentum going is crucial to these types of players. While it will be difficult given the fact that Aaron Donald is right up the middle every single time, Moss is great at running to the outside, and dump-offs to him in the receiving game will work just fine.

Having a playmaker when things go wrong is crucial to a team like this winning, and the Colts have found that with Moss.
