The Colts took a page out of New England’s book in beating the Pats 27-17 Saturday night in Indy. Remember a couple of weeks ago when Belichick called just three pass plays in that win at Buffalo?
Well, Carson Wentz threw it only 12 times (completing five for 57 yards, a TD and an INT) as the Colts beat the Pats 27-17 to end New England’s seven-game winning streak.
Indy is now 8-6. Indy has Jonathan Taylor. Nobody wants any part of Indy. Heck, yes, I can envision the Horseshoes in the Super Bowl.
The Jags say they are not gonna pay Urban Meyer for the four years remaining on his contract. Jacksonville owner Shad Khan says he fired Meyer for cause, and that Meyer violated the terms of his contract. That’s pretty well the way I see it, too…
Two of the country’s best college running backs are skipping their bowl games to enter the NFL draft. Iowa State’s Breece Hall and UTSA’s Sincere McCormick are foregoing their final year of eligibility. Very good players. Very good guys. I respect their decisions.
I hope you caught at least a little of Saturday’s New Mexico Bowl between Fresno State and UTEP. That looked like a bunch of guys having fun playing football, and playing football hard. My soul needed that.
