Indianapolis Colts vs Washington Redskins

The Colts started the game off poorly with a fumble and interception in their first two drives, falling down 0-3 early. After that fumble, however, they kicked it into overdrive and left the Redskins in the dust. The short scare was over and the Colts took care of business against a lesser foe. Following the interception, the Colts put together three touchdowns in their next four drives. They finished the half up 21-10 and didn’t let off the gas pedal. The ‘Skins got within a touchdown early in the third quarter after driving 80 yards, but the Colts outpaced them again, adding two scores and never letting the Redskins get within seven again.

Andrew Luck was the driving force behind the Colts’ win yet again. The quarterback accounted for 370 yards, five touchdowns, and just one interception. He did this while completing 70% of his 27 attempts. His ridiculous efficiency made up for Trent Richardson’s bad play at running back. Fortunately, Luck was complemented by second year running back Daniel Harron who managed 88 yards and a score on just eight carries. Both Coby Fleener and Donte Moncrief were over 100 yards receiving on the day. All in all, the Colts did what they’ve been doing all season: blowing opponents out with superior offensive firepower.
