Jerraud Powers- B
He allowed a lot of completions, but he tackled well (9) and had two very impressive passes that he knocked away in tight coverage. Powers didn't allow anything deep, and took care of his assignments.
Vontae Davis- B-
Davis had a rough first quarter, as he wasn't tackling well and slipped in coverage a couple times. Early on he had poor closing speed on a screen on 3rd-and-long, allowing a first down, as well as a slant for a first down later in the drive. However, he tightened up as the game went on, and was not exposed for big gains like he was in the previous week.
Justin King- C-
King continues to prove that the opposing teams should always try to force the Colts into nickel coverage, as King is the clear weak spot when he's on the field. King had a poor defensive holding penalty on the Vikings final drive that set up the tying touchdown pass, as well as allowing a third down conversion to Percy Harvin earlier in the quarter.
Antoine Bethea- A
Bethea's name was called seemingly every play throughout the game, making big hits all over the field, Whether it was a run, screen, or downfield pass, Bethea seemed to be there far more often than his stats suggest (eight tackles). Bethea did miss the fluky tipped touchdown to Steven Burton, but so did about five other Colts on the play.
Tom Zbikowski- Incomplete
I didn't notice Zbikowski once during the game, and I'm not sure whether that's good or bad. He did have two tackles, one assist and one solo. He pushed Adrian Peterson out of bounds after a six yard gain (along with Davis) and tackled Adrian Peterson after a 20 yard catch and run. In order to grade Zbikowski, more film will have to be watched, because he seemed to make very little impact on the game.
