INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck followed the perfect plan Sunday. Antworten

He threw three more touchdown passes again Christine Michael Sr Jersey , avoided getting sacked again and helped Adam Vinatieri achieve another record-breaking moment by leading the Colts to their fourth straight win.Luck and T.Y. Hilton hooked up twice for scores, Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins each ran for one touchdown and the Colts’ defense stymied Tennessee in a 38-10 drubbing that gave Luck a 10-0 record against the Titans.“Andrew was just unbelievable,” coach Frank Reich said after his quarterback improved to 10-0 in the series. “I mean every throw was with pinpoint accuracy.”His timing was spot on, too.With some of the franchise’s greatest players in attendance, Luck went 23 of 29 for 297 yards and finished with a rating of 143.8. He tied Dan Marino for the third-longest streak of consecutive games with three or more TD passes (seven) in league history. Only Tom Brady (10) and Peyton Manning (eight) remain ahead of Luck on the list.Hilton caught nine passes for 155 yards in front of Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison, the top two receivers in each of the Colts’ most prominent receiving categories.And the victory, the 210th regular-season win of Vinatieri’s career, allowed the 45-year-old to break George Blanda’s record as Indy (5-5) moved squarely back into the playoff hunt.For the Titans (5-5), it was all too familiar. They’ve lost to Luck when he never gave them a chance, when he rallied the Colts late, when he was pulled early and even when he was hurt. This loss might have been the most frustrating yet.After defensive coordinator Dean Pees was taken to a nearby hospital when medical workers took him out of the press box in a wheelchair during the first quarter, first-year coach Mike Vrabel took over play-calling duties and Luck skewered the league’s top-ranked defense.Losing starting quarterback Marcus Mariota with an injured right elbow in the final minute of the first half certainly didn’t help.Vrabel provided no postgame update on Mariota but said Pees would be kept overnight for further tests. The 69-year-old Pees retired briefly after last season, and Luck and Reich both said they hoped Pees would be all right. Tennessee, meanwhile, has some soul-searching to do.“They were ready to go. They played much better than we did. They coached much better than we did,” Vrabel said. “We have to drop this and lose it after we make the corrections, and get going.”Luck made it look easy.After Mack’s 1-yard run and Vinatieri’s 22-yard field goal gave Indy an early 10-0 lead, Luck connected with Hilton on a 68-yard TD pass. Wilkins’ 18-yard scoring run made it 24-0.All the Titans could muster was a 42-yard field on the final play of the half — after Mariota left and only after the Colts drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.Indy put it away by winning a replay challenge that turned a Hilton’s 11-yard catch into a 14-yard TD and a 7-yard scoring pass from Luck to Dontrelle Inman in the fourth quarter.“I cannot speak to the previous years,” Luck said of his mastery over Tennessee. “I’m just happy we’re 1-0 this year against Tennessee and we’ll face them again, obviously, when that time comes.”WAYNE’S WORLD Wayne became the 15th member of the Colts’ Ring of Honor on Sunday during a halftime ceremony where he was surrounded by former teammates including Manning, Marvin Harrison and Edgerrin James, and NFL Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian, who drafted Wayne in 2001.He played in a franchise-record 211 games and caught 1,070 passes for 14 Pat McAfee Color Rush Jersey ,345 yards and 82 TDs in 14 seasons — all in Indy.“This (blue) jacket looks pretty damn good on me, thank you,” Wayne said before jogging to the end zone to thank the fans — as he did for years just before kickoff.STAT PACKTitans: Mariota was 10 of 13 with 85 yards and one interception before leaving. Blaine Gabbert went 11 of 16 with 118 yards, one TD and one interception after replacing Mariota. … Tennessee allowed five sacks. … The Titans gave up a season-high point total.Colts: Luck was not sacked for the fifth consecutive game, breaking a tie for the fifth-longest streak in the league since sacks became an official stat in 1982. Luck has not been sacked in 214 consecutive dropbacks. … Starting center Ryan Kelly left in the fourth quarter with a knee injury and did not return. He said his knee will be examined Monday.THEY SAID ITTitans: “I was able to get the headset switched over, and everybody on the staff, just like they do with Dean, was able to help out,” Vrabel said.Colts: “I guess I knew they kept that stat, but I didn’t know I was close,” Vinatieri said of passing Blanda.UP NEXTTitans: Vrabel returns to Houston next Monday.Colts: Welcome former division foe Miami to Indianapolis next Sunday.

Here is a look at the complete Indianapolis Colts 2019 Draft Class:Colts 2019 Draft ClassRoundPickPlayerPositionSchoolRoundPickPlayerPositionSchoolColts 2019 Draft ClassAfter the draft had concluded, Chris Ballard and Frank Reich sat down to discuss some of the picks and their mentality behind them, and it provided a good look at the ideas he has for this roster going forward. Day ThreeKhari Willis – Safety, Michigan StatePhoto by Gregory Shamus/Getty ImagesThe Colts made their first selection on day three by way of a significant surprise. Chris “I like them picks” Ballard traded up to take Khari Willis out of Michigan State. For a GM like Ballard, that is basically like a love letter to a player. It is clear that he really must have coveted Willis, and whether you think he could have gotten him later or not, he obviously wasn’t willing to risk it. Willis is exactly the kind of player they talk about when they reference bringing in high character leaders to the team. Being a team captain says a lot about him to begin with, but here is a video of him speaking at a Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon and giving a glimpse into the kind of man he is:However , while Ballard did reference Willis’ character, it wasn’t the first thing he talked about. Here is what he did say:Our own Zach Hicks also had the pleasure of interviewing Willis ahead of the draft, and as our resident scout of the safety class, had him listed as a guy who would be a solid fit for the Colts. Additionally, Colts Ring of Honor inductee Bill Brooks is Willis’ cousin, meaning he already has the horseshoe in his DNA.Marvell Tell – Cornerback, USCPhoto by Harry How/Getty ImagesDespite playing safety for USC, the Colts drafted Marvell Tell with the intention of playing him at cornerback. Ballard made an interesting connection to Quincy Wilson when discussing Tell. He referenced how Tell is a big, athletic player, and how Wilson has been useful as a versatile player who can play dime backer or corner as they need him. It seems as though that positional versatility is yet again peeking its head up and showing as a reason the Colts went with Tell. Having a slew of players who have the ability to do a lot gives the Colts flexibility in the event of injury, but also opens up the kinds of looks that Eberflus can show in the secondary. Better still is that Tell won’t be tasked with starting right away, which means he can develop as a special teamer and grow into the cornerback position among a group of other talented young players. The key with the Colts draft this year is that these are high character guys with the potential to grow under the coaching staff. Ballard has clearly placed a great deal of faith in the ability of the coaching staff to develop these players. Additionally, Zach had the opportunity to interview Tell as well ahead of the draft. E.J. Speed – Linebacker, Tarleton StateWho? That was a common consensus among many when Speed’s name was called in the 5th round. The quarterback who converted to receiver, and then to linebacker was not exactly a household name. Speed turned down offers to play for Oklahoma State, Colorado, and Colorado State in order to stay close by after his brother was diagnosed with cancer. Coupled with the two counts of organized criminal activity which were dismissed, and it isn’t hard to see why the kid from Tarleton State wasn’t drawing a ton of attention. However, it would be wrong to assume he wasn’t getting any at all. His Pro Day workout tape found its way to the Colts, and that sparked their interest. Ballard was very clear, they had done their due diligence on him and felt comfortable with what they had found. Despite his charges, what they uncovered was a kid who had been mixed up with a bad crowd and grown from it. From an athletic profile, the guy fits exactly what the Colts have preached over and over, yet another athletic freak who will provide depth and competition at the linebacker spot, and a hungry football loving player who should contribute immediately on special teams. Gerri Green – Defensive End Adam Vinatieri Jersey , Mississippi StatePhoto by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesSensing that the number of linebackers they seemed to draft was a bit high, Ballard joked that they would play a “radar” defense and stand up eleven linebackers before conceding that while they worked Green out as a SAM during the Senior Bowl, they would play him as a defensive end. As with most players selected at 199, Green won’t have an easy road to playing time. The defensive end spot will be hotly contested, and while this staff has proven that they mean it when they say that the best player plays, it won’t be a walk in the park to get that honor. It will be interesting to see how he performs in OTAs and training camp.Jackson Barton – Offensive Tackle, UtahPhoto by George Frey/Getty ImagesThe Colts 9th selection, but only their 2nd offensive player of the draft, Barton projects as a developmental player who (surprise, surprise) possesses elite physical traits at the position. He has played at both tackle positions and started at left tackle the past two seasons. Pad level is Barton’s biggest struggle, and he’ll need to improve across the board. Fortunately, this staff headed by the legendary Howard Mudd on the offensive line, should be able to get the best out of him, and there is no immediate need for a starter here, so Barton will be able to get work as a depth player, or on the practice squad.Javon Patterson – Center, Ole MissPhoto by Bob Levey/Getty ImagesPatterson is a versatile interior offensive lineman, just exactly what the Colts love in their depth players. He has played at each position on the interior but it seems as though the Colts would like him to get work at center to back up Ryan Kelly. Like Barton, Patterson will benefit from not needing to start, and the opportunity to develop under an incredible offensive line staff that can help him develop into a solid rotational player. ConclusionsDay three was much like day two for the Colts. They added players with elite athletic ability and were largely top notch in terms of character and leadership. Defense continued to be the name of the game, and the competition will be hot come training camp to get a spot on this roster. This might be the first time in memory that we will have to face the likelihood of several players getting cut who we would really like to keep due to competition. Even further indication that this roster is heading in the right direction and that the team stands to be improved from last season. So what are your thoughts on this year’s draft class?
