Oh goodness. All you had to do was beat the Jaguars, and you were in. Instead, you lost and set America up for a wild finish on Sunday Night Football. Now, despite all the Pro-Bowlers on the team, Indianapolis is heading home for the offseason, and Carson Wentz is partially to blame.
In a game where it was clear that Jacksonville was the better team, at least on this day, the Colts could not get a rhythm going on offense, and Wentz had a lot to do with it, tossing a pick and getting sacked six times.
With no first-round pick, Indianapolis will have to look at other options to help recoup some of the talents on their team, but a crushing loss like this no doubt drops them in the rankings.
Two seconds. A time-out. All of which ended a dream at the very last second. Chargers fans should know this feeling by now. Boy, it hurts, but in case anyone didn’t see the game, Justin Herbert is a franchise quarterback. Period. On top of that, Joey Bosa continued to give it his all until the end.
But the Chargers need help. A lot of help. And it starts with getting better protection for Herbert. Corey January 09d Rashawn Slater did all they could, but Storm Norton showed that he can’t slow down Maxx Crosby, and with that, the right tackle needs addressing.
Defensively, LA gave up 35 points including in overtime, which highlights the need for another pass rusher. Though Brandon Staley’s timeout will continue to be questioned, there is a very bright future for this team.
