Colts stampede back to 500

Indy went back to the ground game and back to the win column. The Colts were led by solid defense and a rushing attack that would not be stopped. Jonathan Taylor had a game that reminded everyone why he was MVP last year. He amassed 287 yards rushing breaking 13 tackles along the way. Add in 16 receiving yards and three rushing touchdowns and this was easily his best game of the year. Taylor now leads the league in yards after contact and has averaged 137 yards per game. Jameis Winston had one turnover that cost the team points but played well besides that. He had 215 yards and three touchdowns to go along with that interception. Parris Campbell was the main target hauling in 168 yards receiving and two touchdowns. This continues on his career year path he’s been on since week 1. The defense was led by veteran Justin Houston who had two sacks, a forced fumble and constant pressure on Kyler Murray. This helped the Colts intercept 5 passes, Malik Hooker came away with two more interceptions to tie his career high with 7 on the year. The run defense which has been an issue this year looked much better as they bottled up the running backs all game. Kyler added in 57 yards on the ground to bring the Cardinals total to 106 on the ground. When speaking to the defensive coordinator he stated – Kyler is one of those guys you hope to slow down, there’s not many weeks you can completely neutralize him-. The Colts head back home with the Buffalo Bills coming to town next week. The Bills have been reeling in recent weeks, as they have been in the middle of a coaching change. Indy will need to limit Josh Allen as he is enjoying a solid campaign with 2100 pass yards and 19 touchdowns through just 6 games. Look for the Colts to key in on Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs and try to slow that combo down. On offense look for Jonathan Taylor to keep it rolling. It’s tough to call any non divisional game this early in the season must win, but with the conference and division looking stacked as usual every game counts for Indy.
