18 Things to Watch for in Sunday’s Colts-Chiefs Game
Last week didn’t exactly turn out the way I envisioned it. A couple of turnovers, some bad defense, and a 59 yard field goal sank the Colts. Now they face a must win game against the undefeated Kansas City
Chiefs. As the Colts try to get back onto the right side of .500, be watching for:
1. Watch the linebackers. The Colts’ linebackers have been wildly inconsistent from week to week. They played a good game against Denver, but were a mess against the Jags last week. They say “it all starts up front” and that might be true, but the Indy defense depends upon disciplined play by the backers. Clint Session has struggled with injuries and looked lost on the field in both games he’s played. Brackett has been active, but has just missed coming with game changing plays. Phil Wheeler was great against Denver and invisible last week. We need more from this unit.
