Far too many times on Sunday saw the Colts in the Red Zone and fail to come a way with any points.
Whether it was lack of creativity or getting out worked in the trenches, Indianapolis went one of four in those situations vs LA.
The Colts ran 7 goal-to-go plays in the first half. On those plays:
-They gained yardage on just 1 play.
-Jonathan Taylor had 4 rushes for 0 yards, including 3 straight rushes from the 1-yard line.
-Wentz was sacked on 4th down.
-Wentz threw an interception on a shovel pass. pic.twitter.com/y0UoZdrUiF

The only real time creativity was there, a shovel pass from Carson Wentz intended for Jack Doyle, the Colts were intercepted.
“This is the dumbest, most predictable team since Chuck Pagano,” Dan Dakich told listeners on Monday.
Even if you ignore the struggles in the Red Zone, for the second week in a row horrendous offensive line play appeared.
Colts have given up six sacks and 21 quarterback hits in the first two games.

On The Dan Dakich Show on Monday, Dan reminded listeners where his stance on the O-Line has been for years.
“I told you years ago why the offensive line wasn’t going to be any good,” Dakich said. “There’s no toughness!”
Two weeks into the season, the numbers say the same thing.
