Yes, utterly apparent today

No pass rush and this D is just bad

Which is not surprising, really, its what happens with Cover 2/Tampa 2 and zone coverage. It leaves holes and if you give the QB time, its easy to make the passes.

That's 23 out of the 42 points that they scored overall.


Even taking that consideration, I have seen a modest drop-off by the defense at-large since the 4th game. That wasn't overly concerning in regard to the game against Tom Brady and the Patriots, but it IS concerning in regard to the game against Matt Darnold and the Lets.

There was one specific defensive play in which I was particularly impressed with.


With under 10 minutes left to play in the 4th quarter and the Colts trailing by a score of 33-27, the Jets had a 3rd down and 2 yards to go at the Colts' 27 yard-line. A 1st down would have allowed the Jets to eat another 2 minutes off of the clock, AND it would have opened up the possibility of the Jets scoring a touchdown instead of the field goal which they got. In the open field, Anthony Walker SIMULTANEOUSLY stopped Sam Darnold from running for the 1st down, AND he knocked the pass down when Darnold tried to throw for it.


The Jets subsequently kicked a field goal on the next play ........ Walker's play kept the Colts' deficit at a reasonable 9 points (36-27), and also preserved time on the clock for the Colts' chances for a comeback.

(vs. BILLS, 10/21)



The defense had an excellent 1st half, and was just as good in the 2nd.


We're almost halfway into the season, and the Colts' defense at-large has not had a really bad game yet ........ in the 7 individual games they have been either really good, pretty good, or (at worst) average.

Iím a big fan of this teamís development, but I thought the last two weeks were below average. Nice to see them dominate today, even if it was only against Amderson

Tied for 4th in the league in Sacks (21), 6th in INTs(9) and 8th in Forced Fumbles (8).

That's fine for a team that lacks talent in certain positions. You wanna see improvement from past years' shitshow and develop players. Think they are in a good way.

I thought that the previous 2 weeks were average (at worst) for the reasons that I stated in my previous posts.

In the Jets game (for example), 23 of the 42 opponents' points were the result of Colts turnovers by their offense. They (the Colts' defense) also continually kept the Jets out of the end zone and forced them to settle for field goals time and again (they kicked 7 of them), in spite of being put in these holes by the offense.

(vs. RAIDERS, 10/28)



In my rat's ass of an opinion, this was the worst game of the season for the Colts' defense.

Even in the game against the Patriots, they played with more cohesion than they did today ........ they were instrumental in turning a potential 24-3 laugher at halftime into a competitive 24-17 game early in the 4th quarter by getting 3 consecutive stops against Tom Brady and company (including 1 INT.)




The defense today was extreme in all 7 Raiders drives while the outcome of the game was still in doubt.


On those 7 possession, the Raiders had:


4 TD's

2 Three-and-Outs

1 Fumble Recovery



The Raiders did have an 8th possession, but the Colts had a 14-point lead with just over 2 minutes left to play at that point. The Raiders got a couple of 1st downs against a Colts defense that was playing conservatively before turning the ball over on downs near midfield.

Awful today.

One good play all game, the forced fumble by Leonard.

Luckily with the offense scoring to keep pace, it was enough

Other than that, complete crap all game.

They did have 3 three-and-outs in addition to that fumble recovery, including the first 2 Raiders possessions of the game.

Would you say that they were lucky and/or that the Raiders' offense was inept in those 3 drives, and that they got them (the 3 three-and-outs) in spite of the defense playing crappy ???



I agree that they looked lost as a unit for a good deal of the game, more so than any other game so far the season.
