The Colts got dominated last night by the Chargers, plain and simple. Peyton Manning completed 31 of 48 passes for 285 yards with 2 TD passes and 4 INTs (two were returned for TDs by the Chargers’ D). He was awful and he was a big reason for the loss last night….but far from the only one. Donald Brown “led” the way on the ground for the Colts last night with 11 carries for 24 yards (2.2 ypc) and they also caught 5 passes for 47 yards (9.4 avg). Javarris James carried the ball 2 times for 0 yards and he caught 3 passes for 22 yards (7.3 avg) but he lost a fumble. WR Pierre Garcon (5 rec, 72 yards), TE Jacob Tamme (7 rec, 64 yards, TD), WR Reggie Wayne (5 rec, 42 yards) and WR Blair White (4 rec, 34 yards, TD) led the way in the passing game for the Colts last night. The Colts finished up with 24 yards rushing on 13 carries (1.8 ypc) and they also completed 31 of 48 passes for 279 yards as they only had possession of the ball for 24:22.
The defense did not play well for the Colts last night. LBs Pat Angerer (12 tackles), Kavell Conner (10 tackles) and Philip Wheeler (10 tackles) led the way for the Colts on D yesterday. The Chargers finished up with 129 yards rushing on 34 carries (3.8 ypc) and they also completed 19 of 23 passes for 172 yards. The Colts are now 6-4 on the year.
