The Indianapolis Colts are starting the season 0-2 after losing to the Los Angeles Rams, 27-24. It was a hard-fought battle between both teams after the Colts fought back after being down 17-6 to after LA marched down the field to start the second half with a touchdown.
After that, the offense and defense flipped switches and started crawling their way to close down the 11-point lead that the Rams had. Carson Wentz helped lead the team on a scoring drive to bring themselves within three while the defense went on to force three straight three-and-outs. The ball bounced Indy’s way when a fourth down snap by LA went directly into their personal protector’s chest and Ashton Dulin recovered it in the endzone to give the team the 21-17 lead.
The Rams would go on to score but the offense responded with a field goal drive to tie it up 24-24. Then terrible timing hit the Colts, Wentz injured his ankle on a pass attempt and he never came back into the game. Los Angeles took the 27-24 lead with 2:27 left on the clock. Jacob Eason took over from there and he ended up throwing an interception on his second pass attempt that helped seal the win for LA.
It was a brutal way to end a great game and it took away a chance for Wentz to have his moment with his new team.
With that being said, here are my top five takeaways from the game:
