Andrew Luck S Dalton Pompey Blue Jays Jersey ets New Career Marks, Joins 20,000 Club

INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck will always take a team-first approach, but the Indianapolis Colts quarterback answered many questions — and, perhaps, silenced some critics — on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

In the Colts' 37-34 overti Devon Travis Blue Jays Jersey me loss to the Houston Texans, Luck set new single-game career highs in pass completions (40), pass attempts (62) and passing yards (464), and also tossed four touchdowns.

His completions figure tied a franchise record, his attempts broke the record, and his passing yards were nine short of breaking Peyton Manning's 472 set back in 2004.

But nobody was really in the mood to celebrate after Sunday's game, despite the fact the Colts erased an 18-point third quarter deficit to force overtime and had plenty of chances to win the game at the end.

"Right now, I feel tired," Luck said when asked how he was holding up after the game. "It was a long game. Sixty drop-backs is a lot. … There are no slouches on that defense."

Luck also entered Sunday's game needing just 260 passing yards to become the latest member of the 20,000 passing yards club, and achieved that feat early in the fourth quarter. Luck reached the milestone in his 74th career game, tying Dan Marino for the second-fastest to 20,000 yards in NFL Devon Travis Jersey  history. Only Matthew Stafford (71 games) got to the mark quicker.

Luck met another milestone in Sunday’s contest, as he threw a touchdown in his 27th consecutive game, which ties him with Manning for the second-most consecutive games with a touchdown pass in franchise history.

Following the game, rookie running back Nyheim Hines — who caught two touchdowns from Luck on Sunday — couldn't help but give his quarterback his due props after a standout afternoon.

"Cold-blooded," Hines said. "He made every throw."

Five Things Learned: Colts-Tex Dalton Pompey Blue Jays Jersey ans (Week 4)

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts fell to 1-3 on the season Sunday with a 37-34 overtime loss to the Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts were able to bounce back from an 18-point deficit with less than seven minutes remaining in the third quarter, eventually tying the game at 31 late in Devon Travis Jersey  the fourth quarter and sending the game into overtime. From there, the two teams traded field goals, but the Texans were able to escape with the victory after hitting a game-winning 37-yard field goal as time expired.

Colts head coach Frank Reich — who elected to try to earn a first down on 4th and 4 from the Colts’ 43-yard line late in the overtime period instead of punting and virtually playing for a tie, leading to Houston’s game-winning kick — remained steadfast in his aggressive nature after the game.

“We fought back hard to the very end,” Reich said. “I thought we had a good drive going there at the end and then just came up short. … We’re not playing to tie. We’re going for that 10 times out of 10. That’s just the way it’s got to roll.”

Here are the FIVE THINGS LEARNED from Sunday’s game against the Texans:

• AGGRESSIVE MINDSET: We’ll just get that overtime decision out of the way first: Reich isn’t ignorant to the differences between wins, losses and ties in the NFL, particularly when it comes to divisional games, like Sunday’s matchup against AFC South Divis Dalton Pompey Jersey ion foe Houston. When it comes down to tiebreaker scenarios — and, in the AFC South, this hasn’t been rare in recent seasons — a tie game is obviously favorable to a loss. But from the outset, Reich said he is going to be aggressive as the Colts’ head coach, and with buy-in from quarterback Andrew Luck, he sent the offense back on the field to try to convert that 4th and 4 play on its own side of the 50. The quick pass attempt towards Chester Rogers fell incomplete, and Houston got a quick first down on its end and was able to knock in the game-winning kick. Being aggressive has its advantages, and it also has its disadvantages. Had the Colts converted, they would’ve liked called their final timeout, and then had about 20 seconds to try to get into field goal position. But that’s simply not the way it ended up working out. “I think that’s who we are going to be as a team,” Reich said. “We’re going to be aggressive. That’s what we want from our players. That’s a mindset that we have in our players. That’s the only way to win in this league, I think.”

• LUCK’S RECORD-BREAKING DAY: A week ago, some outsiders were wondering if Luck still had some work to do to get to 100 percent. The Colts had an overall lackluster day throwing the ball against the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Indy offense didn’t seem like it was able to get any big chunk plays down the field. Luck answered those questions, and then some, on Sunday against the Texans, however. He tied a franchise record with 40 completions, broke the franchise record with 62 passing attempts, set a career-high with 464 passing yards and had four passing touchdowns with no interceptions. Luck was, as running back Nyheim Hines called him, “cold blooded” in the second half particularly, as he led the big comeback effort by completing 20-of-25 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns in the final two quarters alone. What an effort.

• GIVETH, TAKETH AWAY: The chatter about Sunday’s Colts-Texans games was and still is understandably about Indy’s decision to play for a win rather than a tie in overtime, but, as is the case pretty much after any loss, a few key mistakes earlier in the game, if avoided, could’ve potentially led to a much different outcome for the Colts. This time, it was two key turnovers by the Devon Travis Blue Jays Jersey  offense that led to immediate touchdowns for the Texans. The first came at the 5:30 mark of the the first quarter, as the Colts, backed up to their own two-yard line, had a botched snap from center Ryan Kelly, and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney fell on it in the end zone for a touchdown to tie the game at 7. Then, at the 1:53 mark of the second quarter, Luck dropped back and was sacked by J.J. Watt, who stripped him of the ball, which was recovered by the Texans’ Duke Ejiofor at the Indianapolis 8-yard line. Two plays later, Deshaun Watson found DeAndre Hopkins for a five-yard touchdown pass to go up 21-7 with 1:13 left in the first half. There’s obviously no telling how the game would’ve played out without one or both of these miscues by the Colts, but it’s a prime example of just how important it is to take care of the football — not that anybody on Indy’s side needs to be reminded of that.

• SWARMING: The Colts’ defense logged seven sacks on Sunday, as several players were able to get to Watson throughout the ballgame: Denico Autry had two sacks; Darius Leonard, Anthony Walker, Margus Hunt, Jihad Ward got one apiece; while Jabaal Sheard and Kemoko Turay split a sack. The Colts now have 17 sacks on the season through four games — they had 25 all of last season, ranking 31st in the NFL. Indy not only ranks second in the league in that category, sitting just one behind the league-leading Chicago Bears’ 18, but it has the most sacks through four games it’s ever had. What a turnaround for this defense, which continues to learn and develop under first-year coordinator Matt Eberflus.

Snap Counts: Colts-Texans (Week Dalton Pompey Blue Jays Jersey 4)

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s time to take a look at the unofficial snap counts from Sunday’s 2018 Week 4 matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans.

The Colts got off to a quick start, scoring on their opening possession, but would be stymied by the visitors for a significant period of time after that. With less than seven minutes remaining in the third quarter, Indianapolis found itself down 18, 28-10. That's when the Colts really stepped on the gas, outscoring Houston 21-3 to force overtime.

From there, the two teams traded field goals in the overtime period, but after unsuccess Devon Travis Jersey fully going for it on 4th and 4 from their own 43-yard line with less than a minute to go, the Colts saw the Texans quickly get a first down on their end, and then nail a 37-yard, game-winning Devon Travis Blue Jays Jersey  field goal as time expired to escape Indy with a wild 37-34 victory.

Co Kevin Pillar Women’s Jersey lts-Texans Drive Of The Game: Sending It To Overtime

INDIANAPOLIS — The boxscore will show a nine-play, 85-yard drive taking 2:13 off the clock that cul AaronS Sanchez Blue Jays Jersey minated in a nine-yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to Nyheim Hines, with a two-point conversion from Luck to Chester Rogers.

But let’s take a closer look at the Indianapolis Colts’ Week 4 Drive of the Game, presented by Hays + Sons:

———————————

The task at hand for the Colts’ offense late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Texans was pretty simple: either you drive 85 yards down the field, score a touchdown and get a two-point conversion, or the game is over.

Easy enough, right?

That the Colts even found themselves in that position was pretty amazing considering the team was down as much as 18 points with less than seven minutes remaining in the t AaronS Sanchez Jersey hird quarter. But the defense continued to put the clamps down, and then Luck absolutely caught fire.

After the Colts Kevin Pillar Jersey  had cut the Texans’ lead to five, 28-23, with 7:45 left in the fourth quarter, Houston went down and got a 40-yard field goal to push their lead back to eight with 3:02 left on the clock.

Luck and the Indy offense took the field at their own 15-yard line with 2:53 left knowing what was at stake, but they quickly found themselves facing a 3rd and 3 from the 22. Luck was able to connect with Rogers down the middle for a 22-yard gain, however, moving the chains and getting the Colts close to midfield.

That really seemed to open things up for the Indy offense. The next play: a 17-yard pass to Zach Pascal. Two plays later, a 13-yard pass to Ryan Grant at the Houston 26. Luck then ran for seven yards on a scramble, and followed that up by hooking up with Rogers for a 10-yard gain to get inside the Texans’ 10-yard line.

With just 51 seconds left, Luck, lined up in the shotgun with Hines to his left, dropped back and looked at his options to the right, which included tight end Eric Ebron, Rogers and Pascal. Grant, meanwhile, was busy clearing out room to the left for Hines, who ran a cut route out of the backfield.

Colts Acquire Cornerback Lenzy P Kevin Pillar Women’s Jersey ipkins In Trade With Packers

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts’ final cutdown from 90 to 53 players begins next weekend, but the team is already making some moves.

The Colts on Sunday traded linebacker Antonio Morrison to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Lenzy Pipkins.

Pipkins, 24, signed with the Packers last May as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State, and he became one of three undrafted rookies to make the team’s Week 1 roster in 2017, joining linebacker Chris Odom and punter Justin Vogel.

Pipkins, in all, played in 12 games during his rookie season in 2017, starting one, and was a contributor both on defense and on special teams. He posted 17 tackles (13 solo), including a tackle for a loss, and a pass defensed for the Packers’ defense, and added one special teams stop.

Pipkins saved his best performance of the season for the Packers’ Week 6 game against their division rival Minnesota Vikings, collecting a career-best eight tackles, including a tackle for a loss, bringing down running back Jerick McKinnon for a loss of six yards on a swing pass from quarterback Case Keenum.

He had five tackles and a pass defensed in his first-career start Week 17 against the Detroit Lions. Starting at right cor Kevin Pillar Women’s Jersey nerback in place of an injured Damarious Randall, Pipkins broke up a deep pass on third down from quarterback Matthew Stafford to wide receiver Kenny Golladay on Detroit’s opening series to force a punt.

Pipkins — who has collected eight tackles and a pass defensed through the Packers’ three preseason games so far — could compete right away for playing time in the Colts’ secondary. Two of the team’s primary cornerbacks — Nate Hairston (hamstring) and Quincy Wilson (hand) — suffered injuries in practice last week and did not play in Saturday’s third preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Morrison, meanwhile, was a fourth-round (125th-overall) selection by the Colts in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Florida. In his two seasons with the Colts, Morrison AaronS Sanchez Blue Jays Jersey  played in 31 games (with 19 starts) and posted 154 tackles (91 solo) — six for a loss — and had one pass defensed.

In 2017, Morrison started all 15 games he played at inside linebacker and compiled Kevin Pillar Jersey  a team-best 108 tackles (three for a loss) and knocked down one pass.

With the Colts converting to a 4-3 defense this year under new coordinator Matt Eberflus, Morrison had been moved over to a role as a reserve SAM linebacker. He had three tackles in the Colts’ three preseason games this year.

Colts Sign Free Agent Tight End Ryan Deshaun Watson Women’s Jersey Hewitt; Place Tyquan Lewis On IR

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts on Monday added a solid blocker to the tight end position, as they announced the signing of free agent Ryan Hewitt.

In a corresponding move, the Colts placed defensive tackle/end Tyquan Lewis on injured reserve, which was expected. General manager Chris Ballard said Sunday that Lewis, who suffered a toe injury early in training camp, would be placed on IR and that the team would monitor his progress throughout the season.

The Colts on Monday Deshaun Watson Clemson Jersey  also announced the signing of four players to their practice squad:  Deshaun Watson Women’s Jersey guard Jamil Douglas, defensive end Carroll Phillips, linebacker Ahmad Thomas, and defensive end Jih Men’s Nike Houston Texans 4 Deshaun Watson Elite Alternate Red Jersey Sale ad Ward.

Hewitt, 27, entered the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent back in May 2014 Deshaun Watson Jersey , and would spend the first four seasons of his career in Cincinnati.

In 60 career games with 37 starts, Hewitt has logged 22 catches for 220 yards, while he also has played and started in one postseason contest, catching three passes for 37 yards for the Bengals back in their Wild Card round loss to the Colts in January 2015. Hewitt also has five career special teams stops.
