The Indianapolis Colts (4-2) have their bye week in Week 7, which means unfortunately, there’s no Horseshoe football this Sunday.

The 6’4”, 254 pound defensive end is a former 2014 4th round pick of the Seattle Seahawks (2014-16), but has also spent time with the New England Patriots (2017), San Francisco 49ers...

Where do the Colts spend their money?

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The salary cap has had a tremendously large impact on the sports and especially in the NFL, where they employ a hard salary cap, which means all teams work with the same amount of money and cannot exceed it. It’s important that when spending money, you get the proper value from the dollars you spend. If you spend a lot of money at one position, that position better perform at a high level. If you don’t spend a lot of money at one position, then...

Colts Scouting Notebook: Breaking down every reason why the Colts have a stout run defense

Photo by MSA/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

The Colts have been a top tier run defense for two years now

Ever since Matt Eberflus was hired as the Colts’ Defensive Coordinator in 2018, the Colts defense has had a few key points of emphasis that they live by. One of the most important points for this defense to have success has been the ability to stop the run. This is something that Eberflus has preached his entire career and has always wanted his teams to have an elite run...

Indianapolis Colts Championship Fever: Week 6

The Cincinnati Bengals got off to a hot start on Sunday when they took a commanding 21-0 lead early in the second quarter against the Colts. The game was getting out of hand, but after a laundry list of quality defensive plays for the Colts and a strong performance by Philip Rivers, Indy came out with a 31-27 victory and improved to a record of 4-2 on the season.

Last week, the Colts cooled off on the thermometer. Let’s check on their temperature for the end of week 6.

The Colts’ offense finally came alive against the Cincinnati Bengals

The Indianapolis Colts’ offense has surprisingly been a pretty big let down on the season. The Colts have suffered a few injuries but overall this has been a big disappointment considering the weapons the team added this offseason, including Michael Pittman Jr., Jonathan Taylor, and most notably Philip Rivers. The biggest areas of struggle have been in the most important...

The Titans managed to survive the Texans thanks to a dominant Derrick Henry, some questionable decisions by Romeo Crennel, and some crafty gamesmanship by Mike Vrabel. The Titans offense continues humming along with Tannehill at the helm, as he has not taken the step back I expected from him after signing a massive contract extension in the off-season....
