October 4, 2015; Indianapolis, IN, U.S.; Indianapolis head coach Chuck Pagano consoles Colts running back Frank Gore (23) moments after he fumbled close to the goal line in the closing minutes of their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Dolphins backup linebacker Chris McCain also hurt a hip late at the end of the first quarter, and Miami outside linebacker Jelani Jenkins returned to the game after leaving with stinger symptoms after a hit to one of his shoulders.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the team will “take it day-to-day” with Andrew Luck (shoulder).
After Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers missed two game-winning field goals, Vinatieri connected from 27 yards out with 4:36 left in overtime, giving the Colts a 16-13 win. Then in overtime, his 48-yard attempt went wide left.
Hasselbeck took advantage of the field position to drive Indy for the winning score.
Vinatieri kicked three field goals, broke Mike Vanderjagt’s franchise scoring record and became the first player in league history to top 1,000 points with two different teams. Hasselbeck, playing behind that same porous offensive line, was sacked three times and the Colts rushed for just 60 yards while the Jaguars dominated the line of scrimmage on run plays.
The 40-year-old Hasselbeck got his first career start in a Colts uniform and his first since 2012 with the Titans.
Instead, Luck spent most of the day coaching. The only time Andrew Luck threw that many times was when the Colts were chasing Buffalo for an entire half in Week 1.
I’m convinced Gus Bradley gets fired.
With practice reps extremely rare with the first unit, Hasselbeck showed little rust on Sunday. Cooper grabbed a 26-yarder for his second NFL TD, which came after he was initially ruled out of bounds on the play. “Matt (Hasselbeck) will go with the one’s, Andrew (Luck) will do a few with the two’s so it wasn’t completely out of left field”.
When he was drafted in 1998 – 186 spots behind the Colts taking Manning – Luck was eight years old. We get to see the Colts and Texans face off on a short week on Thursday night. When the batted ball hit the ground, it was effectively downed by the Colts, but they did not ground it or pick it up and hand it to the official.
The former Daphne High School star entered the game with 154 yards on 48 rushing attempts in his first three National Football League games. Even though the Jags’ return man tried to scoop it up and subsequently lost control, the ball was already dead to the Colts and they could not regain possession. “It’s awful. We can’t win games like that”.
“I’ve always believed in myself”, Freeman said. But that was the third coverage penalty, and second pass interference, against Davis, who also has yielded two touchdown passes after keeping opponents out of the end zone last season.
Unlike the Jacksonville Jaguars locker room, the program footing the bill for the diversity fellows (crusaders?) is not open to sports writers of both sexes, at least if you share Richie Cunningham’s complexion and Fonzie’s sexual orientation it’s not.
