At 1-3 on the season the Colts are desperate for wins. The schedule hasn’t been an easy one through the first 4 games, but at some point, you just got to win. Week 5 wasn’t going to make things anything easier, playing the 3-1 Baltimore Ravens on the road on Monday night.
The first three and a half quarters was all Colts. They were dominating the game and things we going close to perfect, besides a fumble by Wentz in the redzone in the 1st quarter. The Colts were leading 22-3 and it looked like they may blow the Ravens out.
Baltimore changed their style and started moving the ball down the field with ease, and quickly. The Ravens scored late in the 4th to tie the game, which included a 2-point conversion to tie the game. The Colts were able to get in field goal range for a game-winner, but a nagging hip injury for Rodrigo Blankenship caused his kick to go wide.
The Ravens had all the momentum and moved right down the field in overtime for the game winning touchdown.
The game felt like something your high school coach used to warn you about ‘You got to play all 4 quarters’. The Colts did not and despite dominating for most of the game, they couldn’t close and lose 25-31.
The Colts are now 1-4 on the season but have a good opportunity to get back in the win column next week when the Texans come to town.
