Falcons vs Colts Preview
The Falcons survived for their first victory against the Eagles last week thanks to some late heroics from Julio Jones and a revitalized defense.
Jones grabbed a screen pass and scampered 54 yards for the eventual winning score with just over two minutes remaining. He became the Falcons franchise leader in receiving yards on the touchdown, passing Roddy White. He has with 10,868 on 709 catches, which have produced 54 touchdowns.
“I’m past that,” Jones told reporters of the play. “Like in my head, I can’t remember now. That’s old. We don’t got no rear-view mirrors. We snatched those down. It’s on to the Colts right now. That’s our mindset, our mentality right now.”
Jones obviously has the attention of the Colts defense, which is gaining a reputation as a stingy unit following the team’s first win last week against Tennessee.
“They’re very talented, very crafty receivers,” Colts cornerback Kenny Moore II said. “Everybody knows what Julio brings to the table. We just have to be on point.”
While Jones has been scorching to start the year, his QB Matt Ryan has not. Ryan has thrown five interceptions to start the season. All of last year, he threw just seven. Falcons head coach Dan Quinn wouldn’t go as far to say he’s concerned about the turnovers.
“I think it’s fair to be concerned … (but) I wouldn’t say concerned,” Quinn said. “I think it’s fair to bring it up and here’s why: two of the decisions down in the red zone are ones, hey man, like how do we get this corrected where it could be thrown away. It wasn’t a fourth-down attempt to go so that piece is where we’re at. “The ones where we give (a receiver) a shot, or tipped ball, that’s one thing. To have the two ones in the red zone were definitely two he’d like to have back, and we certainly plan on getting that fixed.”
The Colts could easily be 2-0, but dropped their opener to the Chargers in overtime. It’s a good story for the team considering the surprising retirement of franchise quarterback Andrew Luck in the offseason. What’s helped Jacoby Brissett during the transition is a strong run game.
Indy has the second best rushing offense this season, bolstered by Marlon Mack, who has notched 370 yards so far this year. It has taken a toll on defenses.
“They ask for more runs, so they get more runs,” Brissett said.
The Colts are a one-point home favorite for the game, according to Odds Shark.
