The Colts were the last team into the playoffs http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dre_mont-jones-jersey
, but they weren’t the first team out.Instead, Indianapolis made a statement in Houston today, putting a whipping on the Texans and getting ready for what should be a good game next weekend in Kansas City.with Andrew Luck marching them down the field for touchdowns on three of their first four drives. By the time everyone was settled in T.J. Hockenson Jersey
, it was already 21-0.And after that it was never really in doubt. The Colts’ offense stalled for much of the rest of the game, but the Colts’ defense delivered, with an excellent performance that largely held Deshaun Watson in check and gave Lamar Miller no room to run.The Texans didn’t even get on the scoreboard until the fourth quarter, when Keke Coutee caught a pass from Watson and ran to the corner of the end zone Zach Brown Jersey
, and even then it appeared that Coutee hadn’t actually scored and had fumbled just before getting the ball across the goal line. Replay stayed with the ruling on the field, however, giving the Texans their only touchdown.But the Texans’ next drive ended with an incomplete pass by Watson on fourth-and-10, and that was all she wrote. Marlon Mack and the Colts’ offensive line had no trouble moving the ball and running out the clock in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Mack finished with 24 carries for 148 yards Kyler Murray Jersey
, a tremendous game against what had been the best run defense in football this season.Although many league observers are attributing the Colts’ turnaround to the return to health of Luck, it was the defense that really shined for the Colts today, and it was a defensive performance that could earn coordinator Matt Eberflus a head-coaching job. This Colts defense is good. Next week, this Colts defense is going to have its hands full in Kansas City Byron Murphy Jersey
, where it will need an even better effort to slow down Patrick Mahomes.But the Colts looked today like they’re capable of beating anyone. This was an impressive start to the postseason. The Lions avoided throwing the ball downfield for most of the first three quarters, but offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter finally dialed up a deep ball late in the third quarter.It turned out to be a good idea. Matthew Stafford faked a handoff and delivered a rocket to wide receiver Kenny Golladay up the sideline for a 43-yard gain. That pushed the Lions deep into Bears territory and LeGarrette Blount would run in his second touchdown of the day a short time later.The Lions opted to go for two in hopes of going up six points, but Stafford fired incomplete to Golladay in the end zone.The Bears have had promising moments on each of their two possessions in the second half, but Ziggy Ansah sacked Chase Daniel a play after a Trey Burton drop to end one drive and Burton’s holding penalty negated a first down that would have kept the second one alive. Burton also lost a fumble in the first half Andy Isabella Jersey
, so it’s been a drab Thanksgiving for him thus far.
