The preseason isn’t exactly an accurate measure for regular season success, but it’s safe to say neither the Indianapolis Colts nor the St. Louis Rams are satisfied with their 0-2 starts.
Indy, which has lost its first two games by a combined score of 59-21, has shown some positives. Andrew Luck looks like Andrew Luck, TY Hilton looks like TY Hilton and rookie wide receiver Phillip Dorsett has been terrific. But the offensive line has been shaky, and the offense has put together just one touchdown in Luck’s five drives.
“Not satisfied by any means,” said Luck about the offense. “I don’t think anybody is satisfied. We’ve got two more preseason games and we got to get better as we go.”
The Rams, meanwhile, have been worse. On six drives for the first-team, the offense has mustered three points and one turnover. Nick Foles and Greg Robinson–two kind of important positions, quarterback and left tackle–have been two of the team’s worst-graded players by Pro Football Focus, and the first-team running game managed just 22 yards on nine carries last week against the Titans.
St. Louis has one of the best defensive lines in football, but the offense is going to have to be much, much better if it is going to make some noise in the crowded NFC West.
Kickoff for this one is at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night. It will be broadcast on WXIN in Indianapolis and KTVI in St. Louis (check here for a full list of affiliates), but if you can’t make it to a TV, here’s how to watch online and on mobile:
