Frank Reich has officially won his first game as the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. In a game that many thought would be an easy win for the Washington Redskins, the Colts’ defense came out and held Washington to just nine points. Indianapolis won the game by a final score of 21-9 when everything was said and done.
It may not have been the prettiest game for Andrew Luck, but getting the win has to feel good. This win is Luck’s first win since January 1 of 2017 when the Colts beat the Jacksonville Jaguars. Luck threw for 179 yards and two touchdowns in today’s effort, but did throw two interceptions as well.
Despite the struggles that Luck had, the team rallied around him. Washington is a talented football team and are going to be a contender in the NFC, but the Colts made a statement. Indianapolis is no longer an easy win for teams who are considered better than them on paper.
Chris Ballard has built a roster that may not be the most talented each and every week, but their effort will never be questioned. Their defensive may have some issues, but they are young and hungry to prove themselves.
All of that being said, which three players came through with the best individual performances for the Colts in their Week 2 matchup against the Redskins?
