Indianapolis Colts vs. New York Jets: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
This was a pretty thorough beat down by the Jets. Shonn Greene had well over 100 yards and three scores. The defense forced turnovers and got into Andrew Luck's head early and often.
This was Andrew Luck's worst game as a pro so far, as most of the Colts offense was engineered by Jets penalties. When the Colts finally did get into the red zone, Luck threw an interception. Clearly, this team had a tough time getting back to work after such an emotional win over the Packers last week.
The Jets move back to 3-3 and the Colts fall back to 2-3.
Final Score: Jets 35, Colts 9
"Party" may be a bit too strong:
Jets are partying like it's 2009. Dominant run game (253 yards). Dominant run D (41 yards). Forced 3 TOs. Sanchez threw for 82 yards (2 TDs)— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) October 14, 2012
That'll do it! Final score: Jets 35, Colts 9
:30 4th Quarter
Andrew Luck finally gets a big play to Reggie Wayne, who promptly fumbles. Nothing quite going right for the Colts today, even in garbage time.
1:05 4th Quarter
Shonn Greene takes it up the middle for an easy six.
Jets 35, Colts 9
3:52 4th Quarter
Muhammad Wilkerson strips Andrew Luck to force a fumble, which is then piked up by David Harris. That should all but wrap this one up.
6:00 4th Quarter
Looks like the Jets are going to roll with Tebow from here on out. Makes sense, especially if the Jets are just going to run out the clock.
7:00 4th Quarter
Andrew Luck, after getting two big gains to Reggie Wayne to set the Colts up in scoring position, throws right to Ellis Lankster in the back of the end zone. Jets take over at the 20.
In general, Luck has looked more like a rookie today than ever before.
8:00 4th Quarter
Very challenge-able play here. Looks like Donnie Avery's elbow may have landed out of bounds before he got the second foot down. This one may get overturned.
The Jets are getting a ton of penalties against them, but the Colts are simply unable to capitalize. For a team down by 19 points, they are not playing with much urgency either.
Just the kid of numbers the Jets want:
Shonn Greene's 25 rushing attempts are a new career high.— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) October 14, 2012
10:00 4th Quarter
One bright spot for the Colts in this game has been Jerry Hughes, who just stalled the Jets drive with a sack. He has really flourished since becoming an outside linebacker this year.
Meanwhile, Robert Malone's punt goes into the end zone for a touchback.
14:00 4th Quarter
Aaron Maybin having a nice day, getting pressure to force an incompletion who got a step on Antonio Cromartie.
At the same time, very impressive by Luck to keep his eyes downfield in a muddy pocket. Very rare for a rookie quarterback to be able to do that right out of the box.
Meanwhile, Adam Vinateri hits another field goal to get the Colts to 9.
Jets 28, Colts 9
Real nice block by Reggie Wayne on that bubble screen. Wayne does not get nearly enough credit for what he does outside of catching the ball.
1:36 3rd Quarter
Shonn Greene makes perhaps the most athletic play of his career on a spin move to shake Antoine Bethea. It is clear that no one in the Colts secondary wants any part of Shonn Greene.
The Jets are now in control and are going to want to run as much clock in every possession as possible.
3:00 3rd Quarter
Joe McKnight makes the most of his carry, taking the Jets to the six yard line. He had a gaping hole to run through.
However, he landed hard on his shoulder and is getting looked at on the side line with the trainers.
Rather be lucky than good:
By my count, that's the third time in three weeks a bad throw by a QB saved Kyle Wilson from getting burned on a long TD pass.— Dan Hanzus (@danhanzus) October 14, 2012
5:37 3rd Quarter
The Jets overload blitz fails to get through, but Donnie Avery is unable to haul in a slightly overthrown ball by Luck. If that ball is placed better, it would have been an easy touchdown.
So far, Luck is looking very much like a rookie. He has missed a few easy throws in this game.
7:00 3rd Quarter
Quinton Coples gets himself a nice sack, but negates it with a bonehead facemask penalty right in front of the ref. Jets getting a lot of flags today, as it has already cost them two touchdowns.
9:00 3rd Quarter
Jets' drive stall after a miscommunication between Kerley and Sanchez. The ball was well-thrown, but Kerley never looked for it. Neither offense doing very much this half.
9:00 3rd Quarter
Nice pressure by Coples to force an intentional grounding. When given the chance, Coples has shined, but the Jets coaches have been hesitant to give him much playing time.
14:12 3rd Quarter
Iffy no-call there. The corner never turned back to play the ball. The refs made a similar call on Antonio Allen early on.
