Living FREEDOM! / Cowboys have dominated Panthers in the regular season
« Last post by panxing18 on November 14, 2018, 09:30:58 PM »
 (except for the last game) The last time the Dallas Cowboys faced off against the Carolina Panthers represents a dark memory for Cowboys fans. It was Thanksgiving of 2015. Tony Romo had returned the previous week from a broken collarbone that had sidelined the longtime quarterback for seven games. Dallas won exactly zero of those seven games , illustrating both Romo’s value to the franchise and the front office’s failure to have an adequate replacement on the roster.Still, despite a 3-7 record fans clung to feint hopes the team could sweep the team’s remaining games and sneak into the playoffs. Little did we know we were about to see the end of an era. Things didn’t go well. Romo’s second pass of the day was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. Trailing 13-3 late in the first half Romo was again intercepted and the ball again returned for a touchdown. Finally, late in the third quarter and trailing 30-6, Panthers’ linebacker Thomas Davis sacked Romo, leaving the quarterback sprawled in pain on the field. Both Romo’s and the Cowboys’ season was over. But that’s not all. Fans had no idea at that time, but we had seen the end of the Tony Romo era as he would never again make an NFL start. That game was also noteworthy for the fact the Panthers actually beat the Cowboys. While the Panthers rank fairly low in terms of teams Cowboys fans love to hate, there was a time when the two played virtually every year and Dallas usually came out on top. Consider:Between 1996 and 2007, Dallas and Carolina would face-off ten times (playing every year except 1999 and 2001).Dallas won seven of the ten matchups, including a 7-1 regular season record.Since 2007, Dallas has won two of the team’s three matchups.The Cowboys 0.818 winning percentage (9-2) is the team’s highest against any opponent in the regular season.Unfortunately, Carolina won both of the team’s playoff contests. The triplets’ era Cowboys saw their bid for a repeat Super Bowl (and fourth Super Bowl in five years) fizzle in Charlotte in January of 1997. The 26-17 loss was the first matchup between the two teams. Michael Irvin was injured on the first series of the game, leaving Troy Aikman with Deion Sanders, Kevin Williams and Kelvin Martin as pass catching targets. The Panthers also knocked an overachieving 2003 Cowboys from the playoffs with a convincing 29-10 wild card win following the 2003 season. This was Bill Parcells first season and frankly it was a miracle that he willed a team featuring Quincy Carter at quarterback and Troy Hambrick at running back to the post-season. Otherwise Dallas has largely owned the regular season series. Notable games include:Cowboys 27 - Panthers 20 (1998)Deion Sanders makes a late-game interception to help preserve an early season victory against the Steve Buerlein-led Panthers. Cowboys 16 - Panthers 13 (2000)This rather dull overtime victory was unremarkable except for Emmitt Smith’s 132 rushing yards. Emmitt, at this time, was within shooting distance of the NFL’s all-time rushing record so every game he ripped off big numbers such as this brought his lifelong goal just a bit closer. He would top the 132-yard mark only three more times in his illustrious career. Cowboys 14 - Panthers 13 (2002)This is surely the most unlikely Cowboys victory over the Panthers. Carolina led 14-0 with just under four minutes remaining when the Cowboys took over on their own 20-yard line. Until that point the Cowboys’ offense had generated seven punts, an interception, a fumble and had turned the ball over on downs. So, of course Quincy Carter immediately threw an 80-yard touchdown to Joey Galloway Youth Byron Jones Jersey , the Cowboys defense stiffened and then Carter led a 10-play, 67-yard touchdown drive culminating in a 24-yard TD to Antonio Bryant. Bizarre stat: Dave Campo-coached teams went 2-0 against the Panthers and 13-33 against everyone else. Cowboys 24 - Panthers 20 (2003)This was the game that had both players and fans buying into first-year Cowboys coach Bill Parcells’ voodoo. The Panthers were a good team (came within a last-minute field goal of forcing overtime in the Super Bowl) and the two teams engaged in a good old-fashioned, hard-fought grudge match. Dallas managed to run the clock out by perfectly executing a four-minute drill. That game, and the entire 2003 season, is well documented in this Deep Blue segment. Cowboys 35 - Panthers 14 (2006)The Panthers ran out to a quick 14-0 lead and things looked dark, however, Dallas would respond with 35 consecutive points for an easy victory. But that’s not why this game is noteworthy. This was Tony Romo’s first NFL start after wrestling the starting quarterback job from Drew Bledsoe the previous week. Romo would go 24-for-36 for 270 yards, a single touchdown and one interception for an 86.6 quarterback rating. Thus, Romo’s first and last starts both came against the Panthers. Hopefully Dallas will continue its regular season dominance against the Panthers this Sunday. What do you think BTB, will we remember the 2018 season opener fondly or will it be a dark memory?Point/counterpoint: Is the Cowboys defense really a top 10 unit, or not? The Dallas Cowboys have gotten off to a 2-2 start, partly due to inconsistent play from the offense. The defense has been much more reliable, keeping them in all of their games so far. But there may have been some signs of trouble against the Detroit Lions, even though that wound up in the win column. Now they are headed for a Sunday night game at the Houston Texans, with Deshaun Watson and another pretty high-flying offense. And like Detroit, Houston is a one-win team looking to keep its season from getting worse. So can the Cowboys rely on their defense, or is there trouble coming right there in the Bayou City? Our Tom Ryle and Michael Strawn debate.Michael: I was quite interested in how the Cowboys’ defense would play because the Lions would, in my opinion Cheap Demarcus Lawrence Jersey , be the first time this Cowboys’ defense would go up against a top NFL passing unit. Over the past five years or so, the Dallas defense has been pretty stubborn against a majority of NFL offenses. However, they have consistently struggled against top-tier passing units. Aaron Rodgers in the 2014 and 2016 playoffs; Ben Roethlisberger, Kirk Cousins and Matt Stafford in 2016; Phillip Rivers last year. Teams with potent passing games have often been able to slice and dice the Cowboys’ pass defense.So I was disappointed in what we saw Sunday. First, the play of Demarcus Lawrence was, again, at an All-Pro level. And that’s good because as outlined here had Lawrence not made those sacks each probably would have resulted in big plays for the Lions. The lack of pressure from the rest of the “hot boyz” (I truly hate that name) hasn’t been better than what we’ve seen in the past. Taco Charlton, Randy Gregory and Dorance Armstrong were touted as providing Dallas with the most talent and depth at the DE position we’ve seen in years. The production simply hasn’t been there.Combine that with a secondary that looked shaky Sunday and we again saw an elite passer having his way. That makes me worried considering this team still have to face Carson Wentz (twice), Alex Smith (also twice), Matt Ryan and Drew Brees.Tom: Yeah, but those sacks did happen, and as I mentioned earlier this week, there is a lot of teamwork involved in getting any sacks. Meanwhile, the Texans are the second worst team in the league at protecting the passer. I think the pass rush is going to harass Watson all game. He is a very good passer, but it is highly unlikely he is going to be able to deliver the pinpoint passes that Stafford kept dropping in. That should help Chidobe Awuzie have a much better game - and Byron Jones is emerging as one of the top shutdown corners in the league. Add in a linebacking corps that didn’t show any real problems in the absence of Sean Lee, and I think the defense is going to rebound.And we may see the return of David Irving as well. He remains a bit of an unknown quantity after his long layoff, but he may be a bit of an X factor. Nonetheless, I have faith that this team can slow down the Texans. With the way the rules increasingly favor the offense Youth Jaylon Smith Jersey , you can’t really stop a team like Houston completely. But this group is good enough to do their part in getting a win.Michael: Again, color me skeptical. The defense has surrendered something like eight 20+ yard passes the last two weeks, including four long touchdowns. Two weeks ago we heard the defense was going to eat up a vulnerable Seahawks offensive line and Russell Wilson sat all comfy in the pocket most of the day. We haven’t even gotten to the fact this team is allergic to turnovers - currently on pace for eight for the entire season. Giving up big plays while failing to take the ball away doesn’t sound like a recipe for success. Realize, I’m not saying the Cowboys’ defense is terrible; I’m just saying it’s not the top-ten unit the point and yardage totals indicate.Tom: The yardage is not as important as the points, and this D has been very stingy there, especially with how NFL teams are slinging the ball around and scoring TDs in the current environment. That is what they have to do, and even with Stafford throwing the ball all over the place, they were able to keep the total down. The Texans are averaging exactly what Detroit scored, 24 points a game. With the Dallas offense looking like it is on a bit of an upswing, I think this group is good enough to continue with keeping the score manageable, which would also keep them in that top 10 range. Part of my optimism is based on the obvious anger Kris Richard displayed in the Lions game. Expect him (and Rod Marinelli) to have this bunch ready to go.Michael: I think if we ask this offense to average 24 points per game we’ll be disappointed with the answer. And that’s kind of my point here: this edition of the Dallas Cowboys will go as far as this defense takes them. The offense’s ceiling is middle-of-the-pack; they’re not going to average 375+ yards and 24+ points. That means the defense has to be a dominant unit in order for the team to succeed. They have the makings of a dominant unit. But until they start generating some turnovers and figuring out a way to stop high-powered passing attacks they’ll continue to be mediocre.Tom: I think this will be the game they break through the turnover barrier. And as I said, I think the offense is coming around, and you can’t overlook what Ezekiel Elliott can do now that he seems to have found his groove. But mostly, I think the talent on this defense is going to prove out. There are going to be ups and downs, but I really believe they will get better going forward. I have a lot of faith in Richard.
Living FREEDOM! / The Cowboys win over the Lions saves the
« Last post by panxing18 on November 14, 2018, 09:20:22 PM »
ir season , for now If you squint a little bit, the Dallas Cowboys team on the field against the Detroit Lions looked a little like 2016. They aren’t there yet as one game does not make a trend, and the Lions have certain deficiencies on defense like stopping the run. Still, in the Cowboys 26-24 win, the Cowboys offense put up over 400 yards of offense and relied on a familiar formula. Ezekiel Elliott running the ball down the opposition’s throat, and Dak Prescott with efficient passing, plus hitting some explosive plays to propel the team to points. The Cowboys defense has started to take on a little water, especially the secondary which had some busted coverages along with some poor effort at times. Plus, they suffered through some extraordinary catches by the Lions receivers. But DeMarcus Lawrence did his part with three sacks and with eight overall tackles to lead the team. The defense did enough so that a rejuvenated offense could close it out. The man to close it out? Brett Maher, who booted four field goals on the day, none more important than the game-winner with time running out.Dak Prescott looked like a different player, confident in the pocket, hitting crucial third downs and looking deep more than once. He bookended a long pass to Michael Gallup early with a long pass to Ezekiel Elliott late, the last one setting up the game-winner. Prescott received excellent protection all day, so his 118.6 rating was well-earned, but also was the beneficiary of that work up front by the Cowboys line.Ezekiel Elliott was the star, though. He did it on the ground and through the air, and took a beating along the way. Elliott had to come out of the game multiple times with aches and pains, but he kept stepping back into the arena and made the big plays when his team need ed them most. The Dak and Zeke show, with nice complementary play from the receivers and the offensive line, remind us of how the Cowboys did it during their 13-3 season in 2016. Power running Cheap Sean Lee Jersey , efficient passing, and just enough explosive plays to put points on the board. Rely on a defense that does just enough to help win the game, and you get victories. For one week, the Cowboys looked like their old selves. Now, can they do it again, and again.This win puts the Cowboys right back in the thick of the playoff race. With the Eagles losing to the Titans today, the Cowboys are tied with Philadelphia and Washington with two wins, although Washington is on a bye so will lead the division at 2-1 (the Giants are still playing). It’s just that crazy from week to week in the NFL, especially in the first month of the season. Dallas hits the quarter mark of the 2018 season at 2-2, but feeling much better about themselves after rediscovering their identity. The trick is to continue that. They have a winnable game next week against the Texans. Are they back on track, or was this just a one-week reprieve?Jason Garrett’s decision to punt on fourth down says a lot about the state of the Cowboys offense It felt like the moment the ball was kicked off in the Sunday night game against the Houston Texans, the Dallas Cowboys were behind. That’s the feeling you get when you can just sense something is not right. We want to believe that this is a good football team, but reality sets in with each new failed third-down conversion attempt. When did this offense become so inept?The Cowboy certainly had chances to pull out the win, but they kept shooting themselves in the foot. Things were feeling pretty good when Tavon Austin returned a punt 22 yards near midfield to get his team within striking distance with just three and a half minutes left in the game. But then an Ezekiel Elliott run that went nowhere followed by a Dak Prescott sack and just like that - the Cowboys were backed up with a 3rd and 17. Just like that, the drive died.And when Xavier Woods caught the floating duck (deflected by DeMarcus Lawrence), it looked like he had some room to run to help move the ball in field goal range. But for some reason, he opted to just go out of bounds. With 10 seconds left and one timeout, the Cowboys needed about 12 yards to give Brett Maher a shot to be the hero again and knock down his fourth field goal of the night for the second straight game. But it wasn’t meant to be as Prescott narrowly escaped a pick-six when he threw to a covered Cole Beasley.Things started off well in overtime as dump-off passes to Zeke and Blake Jarwin moved the ball into Texans territory. But then the games biggest moment arrived. Fourth down and a long one from the Texans 42-yard line. Contrary to popular opinion, Jason Garrett has shown the ability to keep his foot on the gas in these situations before. Just a couple years ago, his Cowboys were facing a 4th-and-1 on the Eagles 28-yard line. He could have sent a reliable Dan Bailey on the field for a gimme three points and then trust his defense to make one stop. Instead, he kept the offense on the field. Dak would sneak through for the first down and then five plays later Youth Joe Looney Jersey , the game would end on this walk-off.Fans everywhere wanted the Cowboys to go for it on Sunday night. But who wouldn’t? The adrenaline is going and why would you want to give the ball back to the Texans in overtime? But that’s exactly what Garrett did as he had them punt the ball away. Garrett explained his reasoning for his decision, but nobody wanted to hear it.For me, I honestly was scared to go for it there. People will talk about how much this team has invested in the offensive line and having such a talented star running back makes this an easy decision. You give the ball to 21 there and live with the results. The problem is, the Texans weren’t going to let Zeke beat them. It’s as if news leaked that he had run off 240 scrimmage yards the week prior. The Texans defense was sending everything they could at the line of scrimmage and it was working.The Cowboys could have run some other non-Zeke play, right? Sure they could have, but that would rely on Dak Prescott making a play and as much as it pains me to say it - that’s a tall order these days.So, the punt happened. Whether it was the right decision or not will be debated all year, and whether you agree with it or not - there were some valid reasons for Garrett making that decision. More than half of Zekes runs amounted to zero or negative yards and they just fell flat on the 3rd-and-short running play.Dallas attempted a fourth down (QB sneak) earlier in the game on a 4th-and-inches, only to make it by less than the length of the football.Zeke just came up limping a few plays before the fourth down play. Was he breaking down physically?Chris Jones is one of the best punters in the game when it comes to pinning teams deep in their own territory.The defense was making plays as the Texans had seven possessions in the second half. Only two of them ended in scores, both field goals.Garrett made his decision, but it came back to bite him. The defense would make a great stop on first down, but then fail to stop them afterwards. And it felt like every single Cowboys defender had a shot to tackle DeAndre Hopkins on a broken play that took him 49 yards down the field to set up the game-wining field goal in overtime, but they just couldn’t wrap him up.Garrett’s decision to punt there doesn’t bother me, but I’m an openly admitted Garrett supporter so take that with a grain of salt. I love the guy and think this organization is much better with him than the thought of how destructive Jerry Jones can be without him. Calling this decision “inexcusable” has about as much merit as blaming him for “icing his own kicker.” It’s fallacy.What does bother me however, is the state of this offense for him to feel compelled to punt the ball away. This is the third game this season the Cowboys offense has failed to score at least 17 points. They’ve lost all three. They are third to last in points scored. And whether the blame deserves to be squarely placed on Garrett’s shoulders or not, it’s his job to fix it. Whether it’s fixing Dak Prescott, finding something productive from their wide receivers, or coming up with more gadget plays to spruce up the offense, something has to be done. Because things are bad for this offense, really bad.

Brilliant defending. The ball has crossed the sideline. Everton are taking a throw-in.

90+3'N'Golo Kante (Chelsea) should know this behaviour is beyond the rules. He was too careless with his challenge and left Kevin Friend no option but to blow his whistle.

90' We will have 5 min. of added time.

Cowboys wasting golden opportunities , but the terrible NFC East is allowing them to stay relevant If Washington can pull off the upset, they will move to 3-1 on the season and would make most of this article moot. But they are heavy underdogs to the Saints. They have to go on the road and so far their record of 2-1 is still, shall we say, questionable. They have beaten a very poor Cardinals team, lost to a bad Colts team, and their signature win so far is against a 2-2-1 Packers team that doesn’t look quite as good as recent editions of that franchise. The shorthand of all that is Washington still needs to prove itself. If they win tonight, then we have to take them seriously. If they lose to the Saints and go to 2-2, as is expected, then we have a situation where the NFC East stinks and Dallas is wasting a golden opportunity.Let’s dispense with something right now: even though this article discusses the current playoff situation and how the Cowboys are still in it despite their recent play, it is in no way an endorsement of the team. Before anyone says “have you seen the way this team is playing?” the answer is “yes, I’ve seen it.” Right now, they are a failing football team. In the NFL, though, things can change quickly. Teams can suddenly find themselves and change their fortunes. So while we can’t say this is what will happen to Dallas, it can’t be ruled out. The good news is that they still have an opportunity to do something, especially if Washington loses tonight. The bad news is they have been wasting a wide open opportunity in the NFC East, and the NFC in general.At this point, the Cowboys are in second place in the NFC East. Their record is tied at 2-3 with Philadelphia , but Dallas holds the tiebreaker because of their division win over New York. If Washington loses, Dallas will only be a half game out of first place. In the NFC, they are in 10th position. The teams ahead of them are the 2-2 Bucs, the 2-2-1 Packers and Vikings, and the 2-3 Seahawks. They are still firmly in contention in the NFC East and the NFC wild card race.That is what is so thoroughly frustrating about the current Cowboys. Other teams are also struggling and Dallas could be in so much better of a position if they could have just beat either the Seahawks or the Texans.In the NFC East, things are getting weird. The Eagles have run into a rough patch, and now their running back is starting to question the coaching.The Eagles certainly aren’t the team they were last year. Now, they might find themselves and Carson Wentz might rediscover his magic, their line might start playing better and they might start playing with better efficiency in the redzone, but right now, they are as frustrating as Dallas, if not more so. Plus, the Eagles still have to go on the road to the Rams and the Saints, they host the Panthers in two weeks, and they have to travel to London to play the Jaguars. Their schedule is tough.In New York, the Giants are coming off a loss by a 63-yard last-second field goal. If that doesn’t say things aren’t going your way, nothing does. They have lost to Dallas and currently are dead last in the NFC. They are also having some internal strife with their 1-4 record.The Cowboys aren’t the only team imploding in the NFC East. It’s contagious. So who will right themselves first and take charge? Washington has the first opportunity tonight, but face a tall task in the potent Saints. If they fall to 2-2 Youth Allen Hurns Jersey , it’s still anybody’s game in the NFC East.The Cowboys recognize the situation.Indeed. The question is - can they get it together? They’ve wasted opportunities so far, but thanks to a mediocre run by other NFC teams, they still have a chance. Dez Bryant's Twitter troll game is in All-Pro form.The free-agent wide receiver called out his former team with a series of critical tweets aimed at the Dallas Cowboys after they dropped their season opener.Bryant was released in April after eight seasons with the team and remains unsigned. He has received interest from Cleveland and Baltimore, but his thoughts were with the Cowboys during — and after — their 16-8 season-opening loss at Carolina.When one fan asked Bryant to have his agent call Cowboys owner Jerry Jones so Dallas could re-sign him, the three-time Pro Bowl selection said he was OK. He also suggested in the same response that he could fit in New England or with the Dallas' NFC East rivals in Washington."I rather go somewhere I can show case my skills for real," Bryant tweeted. "If I line up next to Gronk hogan Edelman I'm for sure getting a 1 on 1 match up plus I won't be getting criticized controlled for expressing my love for the game..Washington is cool as well."When some fans suggested he was just trying to get himself a job, Bryant said he's "not begging anyone," and added in another tweet said he's "not making a pitch."Bryant had previously been critical of the Cowboys' playcalling on offense, and he was at it again on Sunday."It's kind of cool calling out all of the signals and knowing which route players are about run," he wrote.Bryant later posted a laughing crying face emoji when Cowboys beat writer Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News tweeted that offensive coordinator Scott Linehan declined comment after the game.After a barrage of tweets, Bryant said he would be done talking about the Cowboys after Sunday ."If I try to say something good or a factual it always turned out to be negative plus I don't want it to seem that's where I'm focused," he tweeted. "I know the team well so it's hard not for me to speak .. all I ever cared about was winning."But since the day wasn't over, Bryant wasn't finished taking shots at his former team.When someone suggested the Cowboys would have beaten the Panthers if they still had Bryant and kicker Dan Bailey, the wide receiver tweeted: "Real fact."George tweeted that Jones left the locker room quickly without comment as most reporters were interviewing running back Ezekiel Elliott."I love Jerry," Bryant responded. "I honestly don't think HE wanted me gone so I feel his pain."In one of his final posts of the night , a fan asked Bryant to predict the Cowboys' final record this season."I think they are going to be dominant," he said.

Robert Turbin Youth Denico Autry Jersey , waive DE Tarell Basham The Colts made some big moves today in preparation for their Thursday night matchup against the New England Patriots. First, running back Robert Turbin has been elevated to the active roster after being suspended for the first 4 games of the season. Turbin provides a tough downhill runner that the Colts lack, and is the kind of reliable runner they desperately need tonight. Having missed time, he will likely have limited snaps, but works well situationally as a short yardage back and will definitely make an impact on the game. Additionally, they have elevated CB Lenzy Pipkins and LB Skai Moore to the active roster. They’ll provide much needed depth at two positions where injuries have left the Colts pretty thin. The Colts signed Skai Moore as an undrafted free agent and saw him perform well in his role while they were without Anthony Walker Jr. during the preseason. Walker has come back and played really well, but it is good to see Moore make his way back to the active roster to bolster the linebacker room. Hopefully that move isn’t related to Darius Leonard’s availability tonight.Lenzy Pipkins was acquired in the Colts’ trade with the Packers in which they sent Antonio Morrison to Green Bay. He has been back and forth from the practice squad to the active roster, but tonight could see a chance to make an impact with the absence of Quincy Wilson, Kenny Moore, and with Nate Hairston still listed as questionable. The Colts will need all the help they can get in tonight’s game Womens Matthias Farley Jersey , and hopefully these guys can take advantage of this opportunity to show what they can do.Correspondingly the Colts have waived two defensive ends, Tarell Basham and Al-Quadin Muhammad. Basham, the Colts’ 3rd round pick from 2017 has been unable to crack the roster, never really showing the flashes that prompted the Colts selecting him. It was initially thought that the scheme defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus was going to implement would favor Basham’s strengths, but he has been unable to make any impact and has been surpassed by rookies and free agents on a line that has been largely effective without him. In his time with the Colts Basham has played in 16 games, has 5 total tackles, 2 sacks, and a forced fumble. Al-Quadin Muhammad was brought in off waivers back in September after the Saints, who drafted him in the 6th round of 2017’s draft, released him. In his time with the Colts this season he played in 4 games and recorded 6 total tackles.Based on the way the Colts have bounced players back and forth between the active roster and practice squad Youth Kenny Moore Jersey , this is by no means an indication that either player will be out of work for long. Time will tell if they get a second chance. BUFFALO (2-4) at INDIANAPOLIS (1-5)Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBSOPENING LINE — Colts by 6陆RECORD VS.

 G Matt Slauson Youth Chester Rogers Jersey , TE Eric Ebron, WR Ryan Grant, DT Denico Autry, LB Najee Goode, rookies G Quenton Nelson, OL Braden Smith, DE Kemoko Turay, LB Darius Leonard, RB Jordan Wilkins, RB Nyheim Hines, coach Frank Reich.Key losses: RB Frank Gore, CB Rashaan Melvin, S Darius Butler, DT Johnathan Hankins , WR Donte Moncrief, coach Chuck Pagano.Strengths: If Andrew Luck stays healthy and returns to pre-injury form, Colts could have one of league's best QB depth charts with promising 15-game starter Jacoby Brissett as backup. Adding Nelson and Slauson plus return of C Ryan Kelly from injuries could give Luck best interior line in NFL career. Ebron can stretch field in double tight-end sets and give Luck another downfield target. Indy, of course, still has Mr. Clutch in kicker Adam Vinatieri.Weaknesses: Questions abound with young, revamped defense. Colts moved top three linebackers from last season to defensive end while switching to 4-3 front. Need solid production from plethora of rookies. Leonard has played well in preseason. Starting safeties Clayton Geathers and Malik Hooker need to stay healthy after being hindered by injuries. Indy also must find adequate starter at right tackle and depth at receiver. RB Marlon Mack projected to start but has not yet proved he can be workhorse.Fantasy Players To Watch: Ebron. In Reich's offensive system, tight ends play significant role. Pro Bowler Jack Doyle can exploit middle of field, allowing Ebron's athleticism to help open up things around field. Ebron's big body also makes him valuable commodity in goal-line situations.Vegas Says: Super Bowl 67-1. Over-under wins 7.Expectations: Aside from Vinatieri's quest to become league's career field goals (needs seven) and career scoring leader (needs 58 points), nothing is certain. Colts are in rebuild mode following 4-12 season and third straight year of missing playoffs. AFC South is stronger, too. But Luck's return, new coaching regime and change in defensive philosophy could be answer to quick turnaround. When Colts were last projected as bottom dweller, Luck led shocking run to playoffs in 2012. Could it happen again? Stay tuned but Indy is tempering hopes. Healthy Luck and more solid offensive line could be season changer. Frank Reich made it perfectly clear to everyone he would be aggressive when the Indianapolis Colts hired him in February.On Sunday, his boldness proved costly.Instead of punting on fourth-and-4 from his own 43-yard line and settling for a tie, Reich called for a short Womens Margus Hunt Jersey , seemingly safe pass from Andrew Luck to Chester Rogers. But Luck's pass bounced short, the Texans got a 24-yard completion on the next play and Ka'imi Fairbairn made a 37-yard field goal as time expired to give the Houston Texans a 37-34 overtime victory.Nobody in the Colts' locker room was second-guessing the decision, though."I loved it," Luck said. "We had a discussion before the play and I agreed, so it had my stamp of approval. We did not execute well enough. I did not get the ball to Chester to make the play and I'm sick about it. After all the mistakes we made, we still had a chance to make the play and we didn't get it done."The Colts (1-3) certainly had chances all afternoon.After a mostly dismal first half, Luck couldn't convert on a 2-point conversion attempt with 7:41 left in regulation, on the Hail Mary attempt on the final play of regulation or on a third-down play that forced Indy to settle for a go-ahead field with 6 minutes left in overtime.The defense couldn't prevent the Texans from setting up a 40-yard field goal with 2:58 left in regulation, a 59-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds of regulation, a 29-yard field goal to tie the score at 34 with 1:50 left in overtime or, of course, the winning kick as time expired.Yes, Reich would have changed one thing if he had to do it over again — he wouldn't have asked Luck to line up and attempt to draw the Texans (1-3) offside before calling a timeout. He would have gone for it right away.But the failed fourth-down call wasn't the only problem Sunday.Houston's first score came on Jadeveon Clowney's fumble recovery in the end zone when center Ryan Kelly appeared to think Luck was under center rather than in the shotgun, and Fairbairn actually missed the first attempt at the winning kick — but right after Reich called timeout.The Texans (1-3) took advantage of it. But Reich gained the respect of players on both sides for his unconventional move."I respect their decision to go for the win Youth Joe Haeg Jersey , not a tie," Texans defensive end J.J. Watt said. "You play to win, you don't play to tie."Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri concurred.After becoming the league's career leader on a 42-yard field goal with 2 seconds left in the first half and giving Indy a 34-31 lead with a 44-yarder in overtime for No. 567, he wanted one more shot to win the milestone game. He never got another chance after the incompletion, spoiling the celebration."I love the call," Vinatieri said. "I love the fourth-down call to go for the win, I really do — I love it. We just have to make the play. The teams that win games make those plays."This season, the Colts have not made those plays.They lost to Cincinnati in the season opener when Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle fumbled as the Colts were driving for a go-ahead score with less than 2 minutes left. They lost last week at Super Bowl champion Philadelphia when Luck was sacked on fourth-and-goal in the final 2 minutes. On Sunday, with their top receiver T.Y. Hilton on the sideline with an injured hamstring, Reich made the call and came up short when the defense allowed Houston to move into scoring position on its fourth consecutive series.But the confidence Reich showed in both his offense and by defense by going for it just might produce some long-term wins."We are not going to be shy, we aren't going to be afraid to go for it," Kelly said. "I think it just goes to show you he has the trust in the playmakers on this team, and no matter who is in there they need to do their job. I got to give it to him."
