Richardson Rushes For 77 Yards Before Injuring Hamstring

Colts running back Trent Richardson led the Colts with 14 carries and 77 yards in Week 7.Fantasy Spin:Richardson is still running with a purpose, and the Colts are rewarding him by keeping him their top back despite the production from Ahmad Bradshaw. Richardson still needs to consistently find the end zone though in order to be considering a true RB1.

Colts Shut Out the Bengals 27-0

 
Well, that’s a wrap. 27-0.
Quick Hit Observations in No Particular Order
1. The Colts punt coverage team (and Pat McAfee) came out on fire, and needed to be, because punts were flying early.  Even when the returner got loose in the fourth quarter, McAfee was there to take him down with a strong tackle.
2. Ahmad Bradshaw’s fumble was a killer.  Trent Richardson’s fumble was also a killer (though he slow danced his way to 77 yards on 14 carries), especially after  Indy’s running backs have been afflicted with fumblitis.
3. The Indianapolis defense held Cincinnati to 19 total yards on 4 first quarter possessions.  That’s 4.75 yards…per possession.  In the second quarter, the Bengals managed 9 yards.  9.  That’s far from sustainable, but amazing nonetheless, no matter whom you’re playing.
4. Cincy linebacker Vontaze Burfict collided with Luck in the first quarter on a play where the QB should probably slide.  Luck is not just any QB, though, and the linebacker was the on injured on the

Indianapolis Colts take the Cincinnati Bengals behind the barn for a whooping

It was supposed to be a game in which two top AFC went head-to-head for playoff seeding, but it was far from that. At one point in the fourth quarter the Colts had held the Bengals to 107 TOTAL yards, and had well over 475 yards themselves. The final stat line, Colts finished with 506 total yards to the Bengals 135(2.5 yards per play). You cannot make this stuff up. The Colts went on to dominate the game from start to finish winning 27-0, making it the Colts fifth win in a row after starting the year 0-2.
The Colts held the Bengals to one first down in the first half, and for the second straight week held their opponent to 0 first downs in the first quarter. The defense is finally stepping up, and even with out Robert Mathis is playing at an elite level.
We stated earlier in the week they keys to a Colts victory, which included challenging the Bengals secondary, slowing down Giovani Bernard, and getting to Andy Dalton early and often. You can put a check mark beside all three of tho…

WATCH: Colts LB Erik Walden ejected for contact with official

The Indianapolis Colts defense had completely shut down the Bengals in the first half. Cincinnati was unable to pick up a single first down through 29 minutes of the game. There first first down wasn’t gained either. It was handed to the Bengals, as Erik Walden was called for a personal foul for unnecessary roughness. The penalty was a result of Walden pushing the heads line judge in the chest, and he was ejected from the game for his actions. Upon further review, it looks like the referee may have over reacted. Walden clearly made contact, but was it enough to justify an ejection? I’m not too sure about that. You can judge for yourself.

Colts owner Jim Irsay is donating $10,000 to Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital Medical Center in support of the 4-year-old daughter of Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still.

Jim Irsay DUI Arrest Video Shows Colts Owner Stumbling, Hunched Over

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay doesn’t have the best public image right now, and a recently released video certainly won’t help his cause.
The city of Carmel, Ind., released a video Friday that shows footage from Irsay’s DUI arrest in March. In the video, two police officers administer sobriety tests to the Colts owner and watch as he has significant trouble walking and staying upright. One officer finally suggests that Irsay sit on the hood of the police car while they continue tests.

Police also searched Irsay’s car and reportedly found $29,000 in cash as well as “numerous prescription medication bottles containing pills,” according to the Indy Star.
Irsay pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge stemming from the arrest in September, and the NFL suspended him for six games and fined him $500,000 that same day.Filed under: NESN Staff, NFL

Colts should be working the phone lines to land C.J. Spiller

The Indianapolis Colts are not afraid to pull the trigger before the trade deadline.  Their team is special right now, but they truly lack a running back.

In the last 15 years 24 Indianapolis Colts players have been arrested

In the last 15 years the Indianapolis Colts have had 24 players arrested, that is 12th in the league. And this does not include the Jim Irsay arrest from last March. Since the recent news of Ray Rice and Adrian Petterson headlines, a site has compiled a list of how many players have been arrested for each team, and what the chargers were.

The most notable Colts arrest besides Irsay has got to be Pat McAfee. We all remember the drunken swim he took in the canal in Indianapolis. I mean, come on, how can you forget that. The mugshot alone was priceless.
