Let’s put the Indianapolis Colts’ 30-27 home loss to Philadelphia to bed.
ColtsBlitz.com Publisher Phillip B. Wilson wraps up how the game was won.
How the Colts didn’t get a pass-interference call when wide receiver T.Y. Hilton was held on a third-and-9 pass from the Eagles’ 22 when a field goal would have made it a 30-20 game in the fourth quarter.
How the Colts’ defense couldn’t get the stops at the end to preserve a 27-20 lead and how the offense went three-and-out in its final possession with the game tied.
How running back Trent Richardson played well until losing a costly fumble in the third quarter that the Eagles took advantage of to score a tying touchdown.
How some of the Colts’ coaching decisions impacted the outcome.
But bottom line, it’s about how the Colts finish games. They haven’t finished strong in back-to-back weeks, and that’s why they’re now 0-2 as the two-time defending AFC South champions prepare for a Sunday road trip to Jacksonville.
