Like many Colts, defensive end Dwight Freeney just isn’t the same player away from home.
He has four sacks, three forced fumbles and a “stuff” in only three home games. He has one sack and no forced fumbles or stuffs in five away games.
The Eagles shut Freeney down on Sunday by sending a lot of attention his way. Eventually, it caused Freeney to give up on plays, according to Eagles tight end Brent Celek.
blocking Freeney, it was getting to the point where he was ready ready
to give up on the field. He was so frustrated and mad.
“You could tell after a few guys hit him, he would just kind of quit on a play.”
Freeney will try to do better this week at home against the Bengals. The Colts have three challenging road games left (New England, Tennessee, Oakland), but their home-heavy schedule helps their chances in a tight AFC South race.
