The Sam Ehlinger era is not off to a rip-roaring start for the Colts. Instead, he looks a lot like most of the other eight quarterbacks who have started for Indianapolis since 2017.

The Colts gained only 137 yards in the first half as Ehlinger completed 7 of 11 passes for 57 yards. He rushed for minus-1 yard and lost a fumble.

The Commanders lead 7-3 at halftime.

Washington running back Antonio Gibson caught a 9-yard pass from Taylor Heinicke with 10:55 remaining in the second quarter for the only touchdown of the game.

Gibson’s 25 total touchdowns are the most by a Washington player through their first 38 games in franchise history.

He has four catches for 39 yards.

Heinicke has completed 8 of 11 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown.

Colts running back Jonathan Taylor has rushed for 55 yards on seven carries. He needed his injured ankle re-taped but returned despite the Colts calling him questionable to get back in.

  1. Ehlinger had more yards passing than Derek Carr in the first half(against the 31st ranked defense) and he has several years less experience so he could end up being fine.
