The Week Two Goats (In a Bad Way) draft

With Week Two over, it’s time to hand out awards. Good ones, and not-so-good ones. The not-so-good come in the form of our Goats (In a Bad Way) draft.

DeForest Buckner calls Sunday’s game “a little taste” of what Colts defense can do

The Colts were a surprising loser in Week One as Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew went 19-of-20 and threw three touchdowns to lead his team to a 27-20 win.

Mike Zimmer on offense: Right now we’re not good at anything

Jonathan Taylor’s touchdown run gives Colts 7-3 lead

Parris Campbell exits on cart with knee injury
