Colts win a couple of replay challenges, keep things close

The Colts are 2-0 on replay challenges, and only down 3-2 in the game at Seattle.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano has won his first two challenges, reversing a pair of almost-plays by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and getting a couple of points on the board.

The Colts closed to 3-2 after getting Wilson on a blitz and dropping him in the end zone for a safety. It was initially ruled an incomplete pass, but after another look, it was ruled that Wilson’s knee was down before the ball left his hand.

And on the last play of the first quarter, a 19-yard pass to tight end Luke Wilson was overruled, since Wilson was in the process of landing when he shoveled it forward.

It’s a small win, but a win nonetheless for the Colts, who have enough things going against them at the moment.

  1. You start the game with two challenges and “win” an extra one after two prior successful challenges. I think this is BS, you should only run out of challenges after two unsuccessful challenges. The league should be focused on getting the calls right for the integrity of the game. I can see the Colts having to make two challenges so early in the game coming back to bite them in the butt.

  2. It’ll be an interesting off season for Seattle. They had a great ride and it was fun to see that team do what it did. Like all good things, they eventually come to an end. The time has come, the time is here.

  3. I’m not a Colts fan and I picked them to lose in my pool, but watching the refs in Seattle is painful. That first illegal motion flag on Indy was BS. The defender jumps across the line and they get movement. Any other stadium it is offsides. It is earl in the game and in the season, but I hope the Hawks lose bigly.
    Turns out the 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th man usually wears black and white stripes.
