Keys to the game

Brent Skeen-USA TODAY Sports
  • The Colts won the turnover battle, 2-0, recovering two fumbles, one from Lamar Jackson and the other from Kenyan Drake.
  • The defense was stout on money downs, limiting the Ravens to convert 6-of-16 (38%) on third-down attempts.
  • Also on defense, the Colts took care of the Ravens’ top pass-catchers. They held Zay Flowers to eight receptions for 48 yards and Mark Andrews to four receptions for 35 yards.
  • Rigoberto Sanchez was strong all day, downing three of his punts inside the 20-yard line.

  2. LB Zaire Franklin: Again, Franklin was all over the place. He led the way with 15 tackles (11 solo) while adding a sack and a tackle for loss.
  3. RB Zack Moss: The current starter continues to run tough, taking 30 carries for 122 rushing yards while adding two receptions for 23 receiving yards and a touchdown.

A fight 'til the end

Brent Skeen-USA TODAY Sports

This was a fantastic showing of what kind of culture is being built. It’s clear that this roster loves fighting for Shane Steichen and despite being without starting quarterback Anthony Richardson and starting center Ryan Kelly, the Colts continued to claw their way back. There were some struggles along the offensive line, and Gardner Minshew struggled to identify pressures, but this was a great showing of what kind of culture is taking over the locker room.


  • QB Anthony Richardson (concussion) and C Ryan Kelly (concussion) were inactive due to injuries.
  • G Will Fries (cramps) left the game during the second half but eventually returned.
