2022 NFL season Week 5, What we learned from Colt’s victory against Broncos on Thursday

  1. Russell Wilson, Bronco’s offense is back to the beginning. Most level-headed folks knew that Wilson was integrating with his new players, receivers offensive line, and other players will take time to establish in Denver. However, even the most optimistic person couldn’t have foreseen some of the issues we’ve seen up to now particularly when it comes to Wilson himself. The concern appeared to diminish following some solid throws and scrambles that were well-constructed at the Raiders even in losing. However, Thursday was a one-step back in the Bronco’s offense in that Wilson was targeted twice (once late in the final zone that almost ended this game) and only averaged just six yards per passing attempt. This certainly doesn’t have to be blamed for missing Javonte Williams. The Broncos’ initial six third-down distances of the game were 17, 16, 15 12, 10, and 7. A number of mishaps on the first downs have placed Denver in some difficult places, and ones that defenses shouldn’t need to make amends for as often. Nathaniel Hackett is not at any point beyond blame for the issues he has faced on the offensive but the Broncos don’t pay him a quarter of billion dollars. Are Denver fans leaving en masse in a tie game late in regulation? They’re not ignorant. They realize that the image they’re looking at is awful.
  2. Breakout match in support of Alec Pierce. The Colts were clearly in short supply in this game with no Jonathan Taylor, desperately in need of someone to improve in playing on the offensive side. It’s true that in an event that had only 21 points and the Colts were not able to take a lead until overtime, choosing offensive stars is a daunting task. The kicker Chase McLaughlin did amazing work, completing all four field-goal attempts (three at 48 or more) as well. Deon Jackson Taylor, who was Taylor’s replacement in the game, was a huge success with 91 yards of the line of scrimmage. However, Pierce’s eight catches (on 9 targets) for 81 yards turned in a huge score in this game as well as in the coming weeks. The Broncos made the move of moving the top corner Patrick Surtain II away from Michael Pittman and onto Pierce in the closing minutes, which is an impressive gesture of respect to the second-rounder. If Pierce can continue to perform like this regularly and he can be an additional option for receiving what the Colts really require.
  3. Is Matt Ryan semi-cooked? It’s difficult to answer in a fair manner because there are external elements (see below) that are working against Ryan in his debut season at Indianapolis. The fact that he’s running for his life during the first quarter is far from what he or the Colts had in mind as their offensive plan this season. There are a few factors in Ryan’s hands that aren’t working for him. The two interceptions he made in the game were largely inconsistent mistakes which resulted in Colt’s points in an event where points were in short supply. It’s not too late to remember that Ryan was the one to win the game against his fellow Chiefs during Week 3 by executing a spirited final drive, or that he’s completed more than 73% of his passes over the past two games. However, the mistakes — he fumbled two more on Thursday, which is eleven in five games and is a big problem. The interceptions (seven in the present) aren’t too far from the front. Ryan put in a spirited performance and led two important final scoring drives. However, he’s far from his former MVP status.
  4. Baron Browning makes a noble effort prior to an injury. If there ever was a standout player during Thursday’s contest, the best bet is on it coming from the defensive end of the ball. In the absence of Randy Gregory on injured reserve, The Broncos were aware going into the game that they’d be without a significant source of rush-rush power. Enter Browning. He saw his chance and embraced the best of them in a dazzling performance. Browning was a force early, putting pressure on several players, and completed his game by securing six important tackles. He also had included a sack that took his fellow Colts out of the field goal area temporarily, along with six QB shots to a battered Ryan. Browning played more as a linebacker who was off the ball in his college days, but he always showed the ability to rush passes, which made the switch to this position this season a good idea. We witnessed the results of this switch when he played against the Colts although Browning left the game with an injury to his wrist. The Bronco’s defense took a move back after he was out of the game.
  5. Colt’s Reworked offensive line is having a tough evening. There was a surprise on the show prior to the game when a Prime graphic revealed that the Colts made a number of major OL adjustments against Denver in a very short week that saw little practice time. They’d played identically in the initial 3 games in the regular season having Will Fries subbing for Danny Pinter (Weeks 1-3 starter) at right guard. In the game on Thursday, they put the rookie Bernhard Raimann in as a left tackle, moved left tackle Braden Smith to right guard, and transferred Matt Pryor from left tackle to right. The team struggled at the beginning of the game, with Ryan Kelly and Pryor being sacked and Raimann being flagged twice, once for holding (although the calls were questioned) and also for an illegal start. After that, Kelly (hip) became injured in the aftermath of a Ryan interception and was replaced by Pinter. Did you get all this? The final results were similar disappointing from a well-paid team that’s been underachieving almost every season.

Next Gen stats from the game throwing passes with 10 or more yards of air on Thursday, Russell Wilson was 2 of 14 passing, resulting in two yards and 88 yards. He also threw two interceptions.

NFL Analysis: The Colts’ 12-9 victory was the first game without scores and four or more interceptions since Colts defeated the Browns in the first week in 2003. quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Kelly Holcomb each had two interceptions during the final 9-6.
