The Colts lost in Cincinnati Thursday night, 38-7.

They finished the preseason 1-3. Stop me if you’ve heard before that a bad preseason record means nothing to them.

Just a few quick things I noticed out of the highlights I saw and a glance at the game book:
  • Backup quarterback Jim Sorgi, who’d missed a lot of action with a hamstring injury, had to make the team happy with his first and only work of the preseason: 11 of 19 for 119 yards and a TD.
  • Undrafted rookie corner Jacob Lacey, who’s been making a bid for a roster spot, intercepted Jordan Palmer in the second quarter on a throw intended for Chris Henry.
  • Punting late in the fourth quarter, Pat McAfee surely didn’t have top-flight guys blocking for him. But DeDe Dorsey was on him awfully fast, fast enough that the rookie should have sensed trouble, pulled the ball down and looked for an alternative. Dorsey recovered the block for a TD.
