Indianapolis controlled the line of scrimmage on the two sides of the ball and got away Arrowhead Stadium with a success
It turns out perhaps the Indianapolis Colts are okay. Andrew Luck’s retirement without further ado before the season may have found them napping, yet the Colts have a profound, adaptable program with stacked with excellent patrons on the two sides of the ball, and it enables them to win a wide range of games, in a wide range of situations.
This specific win is one of the most amazing you’ll see all season. Straight to the point Reich and friends went into Arrowhead Stadium and vanquished Patrick Mahomes and the already undefeated Kansas City Chiefs, stalking out of Missouri with a 19-13 triumph that was remarkably well-earned.
The Colts were without a few key supporters on resistance and right off the bat appeared as though they may be going to self-destruct because of different wounds. In any case, they corrected the ship, steadied themselves, and generally forced their will on the two sides of the ball for a great part of the night. The outcome was a 37:15 to 22:45 time-of-ownership advantage, and an offense that in reality out-picked up the most touchy unit in the alliance.
The Colts’ activity isn’t almost done. There are as yet 11 games to go. In any case, this is the sort of win people can expand on. Presently they’ll get their opportunity.
Why the Colts won
Closefisted guard and ball-control offense.
Regardless of working truly in need of help (Darius Leonard, Malik Hooker, and Clayton Geathers were all dormant because of damage; while Kenny Moore and Zaire Franklin left the game because of wounds of their own), Matt Eberflus’ barrier straight up overwhelmed this game. Justin Houston was wherever in his first game playing at Arrowhead Stadium as a guest. Denico Autry, Jabaal Sheard, Kemoko Turay, and Grover Stewart more than once made plays in the backfield and kept weight on Mahomes throughout the night. The inclusion toward the back from Pierre Desir, Rock Ya-Sin, Quincy Wilson, and George Odum was to a great extent awesome. The Chiefs came into this game averaging 474.8 yards and 33.8 focuses per game. They totaled only 324 yards and 13, snapping their NFL-record 25-game dash of scoring at least 25.
On the opposite side of the ball, the Colts only sort of kept the ball for whatever length of time that conceivable. The Colts ran nine drives during the aggressive bit of the game. They left away with focuses on five of those nine drives. Just one finished in a three-and-out. Five of them took in any event three minutes off the clock, and three of them consumed in any event five minutes. Marlon Mack ground out 132 yards on 29 conveys. Jordan Wilkins contributed 28 yards with his seven totes. Jacoby Brissett was not especially proficient (18 of 29) or dangerous (5.1 yards per endeavor); yet he made a couple of opportune plays and ran the ball in for the Colts’ just touchdown of the game.
Why the Chiefs lost
They got overwhelmed at the line of scrimmage on both offense and protection. Mahomes was under pressure basically the whole night. He endured a few hotshots and was noticeably limping on various occasions. He was perceptibly less proficient after the main limp-causing hit, and the Chiefs’ offense couldn’t get unmanaged after that. Gracious, and the Colts completely ruled the Chiefs when they attempted to run the ball: Damien Williams had the group’s just nine running back conveys, and he transformed them into only 23 yards. As recently referenced, the Colts utilized their run game to crush the clock and control time of ownership and field position. They found the middle value of 4.3 yards per carry on 43 totes, grabbing key first downs over and over.
It got a piece eclipsed by everything else that happened a while later, yet the game changed significantly after LeSean McCoy’s bumble toward the finish of a long catch-and-keep running on a very well-planned screen play halfway during that time quarter.
