After a wild win in Week 6 in which the Indianapolis Colts survived a rocky start, they move to 4-2 on the year. This victory would not have been possible without Philip Rivers and his ability to lead consistent drives down the field and put the Colts in a position to win.
Rivers finished the day with 371 yards passing and three touchdowns. The throw of the game was a 55-yard deep ball to Marcus Johnson, who also had a great day.
Rivers was also fantastic in the red zone with two of his touchdown passes coming inside the 20-yard line.
The 38-year-old’s toughness is something that can’t be denied. Rivers has multiple plays today where he moved outside the pocket and extended plays despite taking some shots at the end. He stayed in there though and got the job done.
Rivers will need to play like he did this week going forward as the Colts struggle to develop a consistent run game. After the bye, the Colts will travel to take on the Detriot Lions in Week 8.
