The Colts struggled offensively again this week against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers won 20-3 and really did not look too much better with the ball. The game was a struggle to watch, and sadly the whole nation got to see it in prime time.
Nick Foles finally got his chance to start, and the results were the same as previous quarterbacks who started this year. He started off by trying passes over 20 yards but could not connect with any accuracy. The Colts went 0 for ten on third downs for the game. Nick Foles finished the game going 17-29 for 143 yards passing and three interceptions. He was sacked seven times. Nick Foles said, “We had a really good week of practice. Obviously, the execution wasn’t at the level that we needed to win this game, and that’s unfortunate.” Parris Campbell said, “Just too many mistakes, that’s just kind of been the name of our season, not being able to take care of the ball, shooting ourselves in the foot.” Zack Moss was basically the only glimmer of a bright spot for the Colts offensively. Moss and 65 yards rushing, averaging 5.4 yards per rush.
The defense, on the other hand, kept the Chargers on their toes. The Colts sacked Justin Herbert 4 times and held him to 235 yards passing. The four sacks gave the Colts 43 sacks as a team for the season. That makes them three short of tying the record 46 that was set by the 2005 Colts defense.
The Colts are now 4-10-1 on the season with a date in New York against the Giants before the final home game of the season with the Texans.
