Colts Leave the Dog Pound Victorious

The Indianapolis Colts, officially have a two game win streak for the first time in almost two seasons. They came into the game hoping to get pressure on Baker mayfield and get the ground game going and that’s exactly what happened. With a 40-21 victory, The Colts held the high flying offense of the Browns to just 251 yards from scrimmage. They came in averaging almost 400 so that is a massive difference. The team did it by sacking Mayfield four times, and intercepting the Browns 4 times. Three by Baker, and one by backup quarterback Lawson in mop up time. Bobby Okereke led the way with seven tackles and Deforest Buckner had his second straight impressive game with 2.5 sacks and 6 tackles. Marcus Peters nabbed two interceptions to bring his total to four over his last two games. Safeties Tj Green and Jarquiski Tartt each added another interception. The Browns kept the star studded Cleveland backfield relatively quiet as Chubb and Hunt had 16 carries for 70 yards. On the offensive side of the ball for Indy, Jonathan Taylor led the way with 134 rush yards on 18 attempts, but punched the ball into the endzone 3 times. Parris Campbell led the way with three grabs for 67 yards and the lone receiving touchdown. Jameis Winston posted his second consecutive game over 100 quarter back rating, but also had two interceptions that almost put Cleveland back in the game as one was returned for a touchdown. When asked about the game head coach didn’t seem too thrilled as he said “ We need to clean some things up quickly. We had three turnovers and we will not win many games that way. We have to find a way to be better in that aspect of the game”. The Colts have division rival Houston next week in what seems to be a key game in this division race. The Colts at 4-5 are right in the thick of things but need a key win next week.
