COLTS POSITION GROUP RATINGS
RUNNING BACKS: 4/10
Frank Gore is struggling to find holes through the defense and be an effective part of the offense, the colts have gone 50+ games without an 100 yard rusher, the last being Vick Ballard in week 15 of 2012
The Colts keep struggling with slow starts, Luck took many big hits Sunday, Andrew Luck needs to continue to escape from the pocket and make plays with his feet. The Colts may be expected to make changes on their offensive line in the upcoming week.
SPECIAL TEAMS: 10/10
Adam Vinatieri nailed 2 big field goals from 49 yards and 53 yards, this guy has a big leg and does not miss.
The game in Wembley was surely a nail bitter. Most Colts fans were surely disappointed when the Colts were suffering a 20-6 deficit. the Colts eventually made a comeback in the late moments of the game. The comeback fell short and the Jaguars eventually held onto the win. Divisional play in the competitive AFC South began today, the Texans, Colts, Jags, and Titans are all expected to make a run for the playoffs and maybe the wildcard. This is the beginning of a long fight for the AFC south and it will be an interesting one to watch folks.
JAGUARS POSITION GROUP RATINGS
RUNNING BACKS: 6/10
TJ Yeldon wasn’t spectacular but he had a good game with over 70 yards and will continue to get better as the time goes by.
Blake Bortles played very well and was the leader of this Jags offense. He will be in the driver seat of this Jags team for the rest of the year, and in the search for a playoff run.
DEFENSIVE LINE: 6/10
The defensive line was playing spectacularly and got to Luck 6 times for a sack. They were a crucial part in keeping Luck contained and the running game shut down.
