We’re a little more than halfway through the NFL Regular Season and the Indianapolis Colts find themselves back at .500 (5-5) for the first time all year. Along with solid play from Carson Wentz, huge strides from Michael Pittman Jr., and dominance from Jonathan Taylor, it’s been the Colts defense that has impressed lately.
With the game on the line this past Sunday, Colts fans saw an early glimpse into what the Colts envisioned back in late April.
Play from two guys who could totally change the franchise. ⬇️ https://t.co/Q7ylETXC44

Tuesday on The Dan Dakich Show the talented Darius Butler joined the program to evaluate this Colts defense and, in particular, the play of Rock Ya-Sin.
Three players in the early window played at least 25 coverage snaps, played outside CB at least 70% of the time, and allowed 0 receptions as the nearest defender to the targeted receiver, per @NextGenStats:
Rock Ya-Sin, Colts
J.C. Jackson, Patriots
Kristian Fulton, Titans

Darius also spoke on the rest of the NFL including a “business decision” made by Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater.
