Offensive Explosion Gives Colts First Win of 2017

Offensive Explosion Gives Colts First Win of 2017”

The Colts have actually played solid defense against the run so far, but that could also be because teams have passed so easily against them that they haven't really been tested.

Cleveland spent the rest of the game playing catch-up, but had two second-half scoring chances snuffed out by Rashaan Melvin's interceptions.

"0-2 is not where we wanted to be and it is not where we are going to stay". Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. EST on CBS. They cut the deficit to 31-21 on Kenny Britt's 11-yard TD catch and Kizer's 1-yard TD run with 2:04 to play. Both teams were originally part of the now defunct All American Football Conference that lasted from 1946-1949.

The Browns resumed their pregame protests nearly one month to the day that they first expressed their frustration for a lack of social equality and police brutality. That decade just happened to be the 1960s. However, the Browns struggled against the strong Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 2.

And so, for the fourth straight season, the Colts have won their third game after losing their first two.

They're not the only ones who are reaping the benefits.

"I'd trade (the catch) for a win", a frustrated Leslie said.

These are three theoretically winnable games against opponents seemingly as inferior as the Browns, who have enthusiastically talked the talk of an improved roster, and increased talent, leading to better results this year. Whichever team can run it will take pressure off the inexperienced quarterbacks.

The turnover margin wound up determining the game as the Colts only committed one turnover compared to two for the Browns. The key point remains to be how well does quarterback DeShone Kizer perform.

By virtually any measure, from the winless records down to the injured No. 1 overall draft picks, these teams head into today's showdown looking like replicas.

By halftime, Hilton had five catches for 145 yards and the TD. With wide receivers Corey Coleman out with a broken hand and Sammie Coates doubtful to play Sunday, it will be a little tougher for Kizer to get going.

Chuck Pagano has been on the hot seat all season and the Indianapolis Colts have been pressured to fire their head coach.

Jacoby Brissett is still getting a crash course in the Colts system, but he's learning on the job as he makes his second start in a row at quarterback after he was acquired the week before the opener.

In last Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, the Colts managed only one play of at least 20 yards. Jack Doyle was the top Indy receiver with eight catches for 79 yards. Frank Gore, in what is likely his farewell tour, carried the ball 14 times for 46 yards and a touchdown.

The need for an OC was the most obvious to this point. "I enjoyed watching T.Y. put on a show and make a lot of big plays. As long as we do the right things and do the small things that we have been missing the last two games, I believe that we can be contending in this league", Britt said.
