Moss effective but Colts barely run

The Colts leaned on errant passing of QB Nick Foles, for some reason, despite hanging close with the Chargers into the 2nd half of Monday night's loss. RB Zack Moss got just 7 carries in the 1st half, compared with 18 dropbacks for Foles. Moss averaged 5.3 yards on those attempts, with RB Jordan Wilkins mixing in for a 4-yard run. But Moss got just 5 more carries for the game, finishing with a 12-65 rushing line (5.4 per attempt). Wilkins logged the only other RB carry. RB Deon Jackson drew 3 targets, catching them for 9 yards. Moss and Wilkins garnered a target apiece. It was a puzzling approach with a clearly struggling QB and against what has been a soft run defense most of the year. We'll see whether the Colts try to get Moss going more against the Giants in Week 17. Someone should tell them that the Giants are allowing 5.3 yards per RB rush for the season.
