The Giants defense still has some kinks to work out. And their offensive line may be a bigger concern.
The Colts crushed the Giants in every phase of the game on Sunday night, winning 38-14. It’s hard to come up a phase of the game the Colts didn’t excel at. Joseph Addai pounded the ball. Peyton Manning spread the love around to his receivers. Dwight Freeney was an absolute terror, creating two sack fumbles.
The worries about the Colts rush defense didn’t really matter because the Giants gave up on running early in the game with a big deficit. Indy’s pass rush destroyed New York’s offensive line, ending this one quickly.
Not a great day for the NFC East. The Redskins lost at home to Houston; the Eagles held on in Detroit; the Cowboys fell to 0-2.
The Colts, meanwhile, kept pace with Houston in the AFC South. The Texans lead the way at 2-0, with the Titans, Jaguars, and the Colts all with 1-1 records.
