Denver Broncos vs Indianapolis Colts 10/27/2019
The Broncos took a sound beating against the Kansas City Chiefs. They walked home amidst a bad 30-6 scoreboard. The team is demoralized, but they have to pick up the pieces and somehow make it through their upcoming matchup. QB Joe Flacco only chipped in 21/34 with 213 passing yards. He was not able to secure a touchdown in that manner, nor was he able to throw a pick. Phillip Lindsay tried to keep their spirits up by tirelessly carrying the ball 11 times. Despite not being to score a touchdown, he was able to cover 36 yards. Courtland Sutton was the top receiver with 6 catches. These were big catches that earned the team 87 yards. The rest of the stats are mediocre. Despite the Broncos’ 64 plays, they weren’t able to score more than one touchdown.
The problem lies in their yardage gain- they only covered 205 total yards. Their defense had holes in the wall as well. They allowed their opponent a 67% completion rate. The opponent capitalized on this by resorting to a lot of throws and rushes which were easily converted into points. The Broncos usually have good yardage gain. Take that away from them, and the inevitable happens; namely, they aren’t able to score. The Broncos have the distinction of being one of the best defenders this season, but this was also not apparent in their previous matchup. They need to be more consistent to secure a sure win versus any other NFL team.
Players to watch: Joe Flacco (230 ATT 151 CMP 1648 YDS 6 TD), Phillip Lindsay (95 CAR 433 YDS 4.6 AVG 4 TD), Royce Freeman (76 CAR 319 YDS 4.2 AVG 1 TD), Courtland Sutton (36 REC 564 YDS 15.7 AVG 3 TDS), Emmanuel Sanders (30 REC 367 YDS 12.2 AVG 2 TDS), Royce Freeman (25 REC 177 YDS 7.1 AVG 0 TDS), Noah Fant (15 REC 159 YDS 10.6 AVG 1 TDS).
The Colts escaped with a 30-23 ownage of the Houston Texans. The victory was apparent due to the inflated stats of the players in that game. QB Jacoby Brissett was all over the place with 26/39 and 326 air yards. He concluded the game with zero interceptions and a glimmering 4 touchdowns. Marlon Mack pushed his rushing game to the limit by carrying the ball 18 times. He earned 44 yards for his efforts. Zach Pascal was not to be left behind, contributing a total of 106 yards via 6 catches. The team really put in their A-game to claim victory. The Indianapolis Colts posted 67 plays with a 383-yard gain. They also put down 23 first-downs but were held back by 6 penalties.
The Colts’ defense was average at best, holding down the opponent to a 68% completion rate. They still conceded a lot of yards, leading to 391 yards gained for the opponent and 2 forced turnovers. The Colts are capitalizing on their rushing game, and it’s a good tactic. Their recent wins indicate that the team is getting even more comfortable with converting attempts into points. They still need to put on serious work in their defense, however. They can still be trumped by top-ranked teams that can equal or surpass the current state of the Colts’ offense.
Players to watch: Jacoby Brissett (206 ATT 134 CMP 1388 YDS 14 TD), Marlon Mack (119 CAR 514 YDS 4.3 AVG 2 TD), Jordan Wilkins (21 CAR 134 YDS 6.4 AVG 0 TD), T.Y. Hilton (30 REC 306 YDS 10.2 AVG 5 TDS), Zach Pascal (13 REC 239 YDS 18.4 AVG 3 TDS), Eric Ebron (13 REC 206 YDS 15.8 AVG 3 TDS), Jack Doyle (17 REC 149 YDS 8.8 AVG 1 TDS).
