The Colts welcomed franchise quarterback Andrew Luck back, but played inefficiently and blew a fourth-quarter lead to the visiting Bengals. Indianapolis gained more yards than the Bengals but only managed 4.9 yards per play including a weak 3.4 yards per rushing attempt. Luck was decent, but the same problems plagued Indianapolis. They have a mountain of work to do heading to Washington.
The Redskins made a statement in Week 1 by destroying the Cardinals in their own turf. Washington dominated time of possession and limited Arizona to just 213 total yards at 4.2 yards per play. The defence was helped by a rejuvenated running game led by Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson who combined for 161 yards. They will run around the Colts who allowed 5 yards per carry last week.
Washington has won four of the last five home games against the Colts. They are 5-2 at home in their last seven and look to be in their best shape. Alex Smith was like a laser in his debut posting a 118.1 QB Rating as Washington systematically dismantled Arizona. Indianapolis has a bit more firepower but has a worse defence. This will be another chance for Washington to showcase their new offence.
