Colts quarterback Andrew Luck looked like the dynasty franchise quarterback we all expected him to be, going 29 of 46 for 326 yards for a 7.1 YPA and four touchdowns with zero turnovers. Let’s hope this kind of play continues.
Bengals running back Giovani Bernard had another solid outing with 99 yards rushing on just 12 attempts, for an 8.3 YPC, to go along with four catches for 49 yards. Bernard is only scratching the surface of his production and with BenJarvus Green-Ellis only under contract for one more year at most, he should be even better next year.
Colts rookie receiver Da’Rick Rogers went off for six catches, gaining 107 yards and two touchdowns. Only playing due to injuries on the team, Rogers made the most of it and lived up to the pre-season hype he had in Buffalo…at least for today. It’ll be interesting to see if his quarterback keeps looking his way down the stretch.
Colts safety Antoine Bethea had a team-high 17 tackles. It’s his first double-digit tackle game since week one of a disappointing season. Bethea will be 30 heading in to next season and is surely on the decline of his career with his tackle numbers and passes defended numbers going down again. Avoid in dynasty leagues.
