Dr. Filmlove: Week 12

Week 12 has come and gone, and with their first two-score victory of the season, the Colts improved to 6-5. In a game that saw both the Colts’ and Buccaneers’ defenses bend but not break for much of the first half, it was the Colts that were able to put it together after halftime to dominate. The question on my mind was, what made the difference? Halftime Adjustments? Thanks...

Breaking down the Indianapolis Colts defensive line during their first game

Sunday’s game was ugly. Very ugly. The game inspired much doomsday talk but not to beat a dead horse, it was just one game. One rainy, away game. Instead of talking about the larger picture since that seems pretty well covered by now I decided to run through all the defensive plays on film to see how the new group fared.

Simply put, the Colts were made to look like little boys against the New England Patriots Sunday night. Giving up over 200 yards rushing and held to a pathetic 19 yards on the ground. When your leading rusher is Andrew Luck it has been a bad night. Seven carries for Trent Richardson ended in 0 yards, as he was constantly hit before even getting close to the line-of-scrimmage.
