Colts RB Frank Gore: ‘I didn’t come here for this’

The Colts have lost four of their last five division games since the midpoint of last season, and that is at least as damning as losing a game in overtime that they had led 23-9 late in the fourth quarter. That they helped Osweiler strengthen his tenuous grip on his job for at least a week is an interesting footnote — Osweiler was 12 of 15 for 135 yards and two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, following 11 of 22 for 89 yards with an interception in the first three — but the more immediate problem for the Colts is a confounding lack of a killer instinct. As a result, the Colts are 2-4, hardly dead in the middling AFC South, but in last place for now and searching for some way out of the morass that is the division standings and their own mental torpor.

This game showed the Colts’ many limitations on a day where Andrew Luck was not at his best. Luck was hit a ton and turned the ball over three times, although only one of those turnovers was his fault — a particularly ugly interception where he tried to force a pass. Colts receivers other than T.Y. Hilton failed to make tough catches all day and the Colts didn’t trust their running game. ( had 10 rushes for 41 yards.) These looked like two teams lucky to be in any playoff race.wholesale NFL jerseys

“Like I told (the players), there is no margin for error,” the coach said. “We have had our ups and had our downs, and that’s life in the NFL. That’s life in general. It’s all how you respond, so I expect these guys to respond like they usually do.”

The Texans currently own the easiest remaining schedule in the division, based on remaining opponent win percentage this season. Houston’s opponents have a .384 winning percentage (2nd easiest in NFL). The Colts have the 21st toughest strength of schedule at .473. The Titans sit at 15th with .523.

Indy has been in every game this season, but the fatally flawed team has faltered when it mattered. Losing a 14-point lead with under seven minutes to go last week in Houston was the microcosm of the season.

The heat on coach and cheap jerseys and general manager has increased as the disappointment mounts in Indianapolis. Irsay, however, defended his coach and GM duo, both of whom received contract extensions this offseason.

According to Doyle, while the rest of the players talked in platitudes about getting back to work and putting the loss behind them, Gore seemed frustrated almost to tears.

With the loss, the Colts fell to last place in the AFC South. In the cellar of the worst division in the NFL isn’t a place that a team with playoff aspirations should find itself six games into the season.

Adrian Peterson’s long-awaited return was anticlimactic. Sporting a brace on his surgically repaired knee, the seven-time Pro Bowler managed just 22 yards on six carries, losing a red-zone fumble at the tail end of his longest run (13 yards). Although Peterson functioned as the primary early-down back until the game was out of hand, he never had a chance to reach second gear behind Minnesota’s anemic offensive line. Vikings fans hoping for a savior in problematic short-yardage situations didn’t get a chance to see Peterson in that role.
