The Colts did what they were supposed to do yesterday by absolutely dominating the Rams.  Peyton Manning was outstanding again as he completed 23 of 34 passes for 235 yards with 3 TD passes and 0 INTs.  Joseph Addai was so-so again carrying the ball 20 times for 64 yards (3.2 ypc) with 1 TD run.  Donald Brown carried the ball 2 times for 58 yards (29.0 ypc) yesterday.  Little used Chad Simpson even got in on the fun carrying the ball 3 times for 35 yards (11.7 ypc) with a TD.  Reggie Wayne was solid with 7 grabs for 83 yards (11.9 avg) with a TD.  TE Dallas Clark added 3 catches for 44 yards (14.7 avg) with a TD grab.  Rookie WR Austin Collie keeps rolling along as of last as he catches 4 passes for 36 yards (9.0 avg) and a TD grab.  The Colts finished up with 391 total yards on offense (156 rushing, 235 passing) in this game.

Safety Antoine Bethea led the way for the Colts in this game with 8 tackles.  CBs Jacob Lacey (4 tackles, pass defensed, 35-yard interception return for a TD) and Kelvin Hayden (4 tackles, 1 pass defensed and 1 interception) also had outstanding games for the Colts on D in this game.  The Rams finished up with 272 total yards (155 rushing, 117 passing) in this game.  The Colts are now 6-0 on the season.

    Everyone knew the Colts were going to crush the Rams, the question was just by how much? It seems as if the good teams in this league are so far ahead of the bad teams that they never have a chance. Peyton Manning did have a great game like usual, but he failed to reach 300 yards passing for the first time this season. I sure am happy to have him on my fantasy football team though, as he gets at least 20 fantasy points every week.
