Colts’ starters look good on both sides of the ball

If the third game is the time in the preseason when we get the best idea of how a team is going to look in the regular season, then Indianapolis has to feel very good right now.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and receiver Reggie Wayne appear to be in midseason form against the Browns, with Luck hitting Wayne seven times for 79 yards in the first half. Luck played better than his numbers (14-for-23 for 141 yards with a touchdown and an interception) would suggest. Luck’s interception went through the hands of fullback Stanley Havili, who should have caught it before Browns safety Tashaun intercepted it.

The Colts’ first-string defense held the Browns’ first-string offense in check. Cleveland’s five first-half possessions resulted in four punts and a lost fumble, and a Browns team that looked very good through the first two weeks of the preseason hasn’t been able to get anything going.

With both teams in the locker room and the starters getting ready to give way to the backups, the Colts lead the Browns 10-0.

    One major objective has been achieved by Indy thus far in preseason: No major injuries. That’s the bottom line.

    after watching the game, I concentrated on the receivers, Weeden was no that bad, As the article said, dropped passes, penalties and Little’s fumble hurt, but I saw receivers running sloppy routes until Cooper came in, The #1’s were not getting open, there was really no separation, yet Weeden still threw the ball where the receivers had a chance, but he still had No INT’s.
    While not proclaiming him Otto Graham, he is certainly not Charlie Frye at this point.
