Colts Drop To 0-3 For First Time Since 2011

At 0-2 the Colts still had a shot at the division lead when they went to Nashville to take on the Tennessee Titans. Carson Wentz was questionable for the game after spraining both of his ankles in the previous game against the Rams, but would give it a go.  

The game felt awfully familiar to the past two. Long drives from both teams, but the Colts trailed at the end of the 1st half 10-14. Wentz struggled to move much in or outside of the pocket, and an injury to Quenton Nelson didn’t help things.  

Once again, similar to the last two weeks, the Colts had a chance heading into the 4th quarter. The defense was forcing turnovers, but the offense was unable to turn those turnovers into touchdowns. They settled for 3 twice and it wouldn’t be enough to overcome the deficit. The Titans win and move two game ahead of the Colts in the division with the 25-16 win.  

The Colts fall to 0-3 for the first time since 2011, the year Peyton Manning missed the season with a neck injury. Next up for the Colts is the Miami Dolphins, where they’ll play against former QB Jacoby Brissett.
