Indianapolis Colts are poised for another exciting preseason contest after their thrilling win against the Chicago Bears last week, but this one promises to be pivotal. After staging an impressive fourth-quarter comeback that secured them a 24-17 victory, evening up their preseason record at 1-1 and setting the stage for this clash against the Eagles.
Indianapolis’ offensive performance was highlighted by their ability to come back from a 17-7 deficit and score 17 unanswered points in the final 8:38 of the game, turning around their 17-7 deficit into 17 unanswered points within 8 minutes and 38 seconds, to earn victory. They held an edge in total offense at 343-310 yards over their opponents while also notching 21 first downs compared to 18 for the Chicago Bears. A key turnover further strengthened their efforts en route to success.
Eagles’ Preseason Focus: Health and Preparation as Regular Season Nears
Sam Ehlinger has been an impressive force during the Colts’ preseason campaign. Completing 17 out of 23 passes for 196 yards while also adding 70 rushing yards with one score, Ehlinger has displayed his dual-threat capabilities and shown off his multidimensional playmaking. Gardner Minshew II (19 of 21, 179 yards and one touchdown) has made his case to become the backup quarterback, vying for that spot against many other applicants. Anthony Richardson has made an early statement as his projected regular-season starter by completing seven out of 12 passes for 67 yards with one interception and seven completions in 12 attempts for a 74% completion rate and an interception. Meanwhile, the Colts’ ground game has seen various contenders, such as Deon Jackson, Jake Funk, Evan Hull Jason Huntley, and Kenyan Drake battle to establish themselves.
Philadelphia Eagles enter this matchup with an eye toward protecting player health as the regular season approaches. Their preseason record of 0-1-1 underscores their goal to avoid serious injuries while simultaneously preparing for what lies ahead; their previous match against Cleveland Browns resulted in an 18-18 tie, further underscoring their intention to fine-tune strategies and refine tactics.
