I thought this game would be a cake walk. The Colts played a hell of a
lot better than I thought they would. The refs almost let them take it
to OT or win it with that crooked non-fumble call but thankfully the
Bills overcame them.
Josh was a force out there. Led the team in passing and rushing and
became the first player in playoff history to record 300+ yards passing,
50+ yards rushing and complete 70%+ of his passes. So much for being
inaccurate. The fumble was bad but thankfully it didn't hurt them and
is a teaching point. Diggs, Davis and Beasley were huge.
The defense did well despite giving up a lot of yards by limiting the
Colts to 10 points until the 4th quarter. They'll need to tighten-up a
lot if the team is to go past next weekend when they'll almost assuredly
face the Steelers.
As for the Colts, they spun their wheels with Rivers. He could never
take the Chargers to the SB on a loaded team and he's nearing the end.
Unless they hit on a QB in the later 1st or later rounds, they'll be
spinning their wheels some more, wasting their talent.
And yes, great to get the playoff win monkey off their backs. But
there's still more to do.
