Malik Hooker Jersey White from linchao's blog

For most NFL fans Andrew Luck Jersey White , the NFL Pro Bowl game isn’t exactly a must-watch affair. However, the Indianapolis Colts sent three players to the season’s end-of-year exhibition between the league’s two conferences. Andrew Luck (originally an alternate), Eric Ebron, and Quenton Nelson were all participants this year for the AFC. Luck was added after Philip Rivers was unable to participate due to injury, while Ebron and Nelson had fantastic seasons as well and were on the original roster. Ebron had a career year in receiving yardage (750 yards), eclipsed his career production in touchdowns with 13 (11 TDs in previous 4 years combined), as well as career-bests in receiving targets (110) and receptions (66). His abilities were critical for the Colts’ passing game in finding a No. 2 target to complement T.Y. Hilton.Luck also experienced career-bests in attempts (430), completions (639) and completion percentage (67.3%) Darius Leonard Jersey White , while having his career’s second best numbers in interception percentage(2.3%) and touchdowns (39). While Luck was fantastic, the fact that he was protected far better than any previous years in his career (league best 2.7% sack percentage) was a large help towards his performance this season. Nelson was a major part of that vast improvement in protection as he started and held down the left guard position through the entire season and was even given First-Team All-Pro honors in his rookie season. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see rookie standout Darius Leonard as he was snubbed from the Pro Bowl despite being given First-Team All-Pro honors as well in his rookie campaign. Thus, only offensive personnel were on display in this year’s game.Colts’ PerformancesTight End Eric Ebron got the start at the position for the AFC and got into the box score on the very first possession of the game. As the AFC marched down the field under the direction of Patrick Mahomes, the Colts’ red zone threat was the recipient of an 18-yard touchdown pass via a shallow corner route putting the AFC up 7-0 with 11:26 left in the first quarter.Ebron was also sprinkled in to Luck’s second drive but was unsuccessfully targeted across the middle of the field.Andrew Luck and Quenton Nelson entered the lineup for the AFC on their fourth possession of the game, but the early results weren’t all that exciting. Luck tossed an early incompletion to Tyreek Hill that was batted away at the catch point, and another that looked to be the result of indecision on Luck’s part as the ball came out of his hand awkwardly. Luck’s third attempt was picked off by Chicago Bears’ cornerback Kyle Fuller across the middle of the field as he was targeting Pittsburgh Steelers’ receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The following possession for Luck and the AFC was more productive as he moved the offense down the field on a 17-play drive in which Luck was ‘sacked’ on a third-down attempt and the AFC was forced to settle for a 31-yard field goal by Jason Myers which gave the AFC a 17-0 lead over the NFC inside of a minute to go in the first half.Luck connected on 7 of his 12 attempts for 81 yards on the drive after starting 0-3 for the game. Luck started the second half for the AFC as the rain continued to fall, but the AFC went three-and-out. This was the last Luck would see the field and he finished the day 7-of-17 for 81 yards and an interception.Ebron finished the day with that sole reception for touchdown in the first quarter, and was only targeted two additional times throughout the game.Nelson continued to get snaps throughout the game and even played some on the right side of the AFC’s line at times as well.The AFC pulled out the win Peyton Manning Jersey , 26-7, and will earn an extra $62,000 to their season’s salary. Every week, I will present a summary of some basic and advanced stats for the Colts performance relative to the league. Thanks to Pro Football Reference, NFL.com and the nflSCrapR project for being awesome sources of weekly data.The relationship between an NFL offense and the defense it faces is complementary and interconnected. It is a yin and yang where each is dependent upon and defines the other.So, it is difficult to say if last Sunday was an outstanding Indy defense or a horrible Jacksonville offense. The answer may just be the sound of one hand clapping.And for those who want me to stop conflating disparate eastern philosophies, I can safely say that was Zen and this is Tao. Alternatively, we can just look at the stats and see that the defense put up some remarkable numbers.Jacksonville was allowed into Indy territory only twice all day and they earned just 11 first downs. Throw in 3 sacks and a takeaway and you get a 50% Drive Success Rate Darius Leonard Jersey , which is actually worse than what the Jags defense did to the Colts. TEAM TOTALSOf the 384 games so far this year, a 50% DSR ranks 8th lowest and easily puts the Indy D as the best defensive effort of the week.They also finished at the top of the pile in First Down % against.The Colts held the Jags to just 0.5 adjusted points per drive, which is the second best effort for the week, eclipsed only by. . . oh right, Jacksonville blanking Indy. PASSINGGiving up a 4.9 ANY/A is actually pretty good pass defense but a lot of teams managed that this week so the ranking is just “meh”. But with 3 sacks, no TDs and just 1 explosive pass play, Cody Kessler could not move the ball through the air as only 26% of his passes earned a new set of downs (6th lowest).While Kessler did attain a high 75% completion rate, that is mostly explained by how short his passes were.1.9 avg air yards per completion was the shortest in the league this week. The last time around the Jags hung 9.9 Yards After the Catch on the Colts Malik Hooker Jersey White , but this week, it was limited to 6.4. That is still a big number but somewhat forgivable as really short passes tend to have inflated YAC. RUSHINGWith 2.9 Yards per Carry and a 18% weighted Rush Success Rate, the Colts completely shut down the Jags run game.It was the 3rd best effort of the week with the top spot going to . . . oh right, Jacksonville . . . crap. CONCLUSIONS & NEXT MATCH-UPI know a lot of people will be hesitant to give the Colts D any credit as Jacksonville’s offensewas severely hobbled. But in those situations, a good defense should keep their opponents out of the end zone and quickly get the ball back to their offense and that’s exactly what the Colts did. This coming Sunday, the defense will be tested by Deshaun Watson, best known as Joe the policeman on the “What’s Goin’ Down” episode of “That’s My Momma”.Houston has been putting up basically league average numbers over the last 4 games, but they have walked away with W’s in all of them. On the year Womens Peyton Manning Jersey , their pass game ranks 9th in ANY/A and the run game is 25th in wRSR.So, on paper that looks to be a rough day for the Colts through the air but they should be better able to stop the run.
