We know something FPI doesn’t, of course: The Bengals are shedding parts like a damaged spaceship crashing to Earth. They lost two critical offensive weapons Sunday, with Giovani Bernard tearing his ACL and A.J. Green suffering a hamstring injury that may end his season.
Last year’s Bengals might Jalen Collins Womens Jersey have been able to overcome these injuries. They were deeper at wide receiver with Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Rookie Tyler Boyd has flashed some promise, but Brandon LaFell hasn’t been productive and did little to occupy Stephon Gilmore on an ugly Andy Dalton interception that set up a Buffalo field goal Sunday.
With Andrew Luck in the concussion protocol, the Colts likely will have to turn to Scott Tolzien, left, against the Steelers on Thursday.
“I’ve got the same exposure that you guys have,” Pagano said. “He’s got some limited amount of exposure, but he’s a pro. Again, if he has to roll and be the guy, he’ll do a great job. He prepares really well every single day.”
That doesn’t say a lot about your quarterback, Chuck.
Tolzien’s NFL resume consists of a total of six career appearances. He’s 56-of-91 for 721 yards with a touchdown and five interceptions in his career. Tolzien’s last meaningful playing time was three years ago, when he was with the Packers, going 7-of-17 for 98 yards against the Minnesota Vikings on Nov. 24, 2013.
Not that there’s ever a good time to be without your franchise player, but this really isn’t Jonathan Babineaux Womens Jersey a good time for the Colts to be without Luck. He’s not only the pulse of the offense, he’s the pulse of the entire franchise.
Indianapolis is on a two-game winning streak as it tries to claw its way back into the AFC South race. The Houston Texans went into their Monday night game against the Oakland Raiders with a 1 1/2-game lead over the Colts in the division.
