With the embarrassing loss in Los Angeles against the Rams still haunting Colts’ fans, a lot of positions will need to step up if the Colts want to beat the Cardinals in Lucas Oil stadium. The position groups that will need to step up are the Cornerbacks, Safeties, and the entire O-line. Some other players that will need to step up are, T.Y. Hilton, fumbling the ball even when your trying to go down to end the play on your own, you have to hold on to the ball. Adam Vinatieri needs to be the G.O.A.T. that he is and make all the field goals and extra points that he’s given the opportunity to. Jacoby Brissett will need to ball out and improve from Scott Tolzien’s stats from last week, which won’t be hard, and play perfectly.

The O-line could not stop the Rams D-line even without star player Aaron Donald, allowing the Rams to get four sacks and one forced fumble that was luckily recovered by the Colts. With star center Ryan Kelly still out, the group will need to be shut down like they were when Jacoby Brissett was in the game. In the run game, the O-line did well allowing Gore, Turbin, and Mack to get a total of 75 yards in total.
The Colts’ cornerbacks and Safeties can be put in the same spot because they both had a lot of blown coverages and gave the Rams 310 yards and a touchdown. If their blown coverages wasn’t bad enough, they were not able to help out and step up to stop the Rams run game when they had to. Blowing coverages can happen when facing wide receivers like Larry Fitzgerald, a future Hall of Famer, JJ Nelson, and John Brown who had a total of 264 yards and one touchdown against an above average Lions defense.
