Interesting numbers from Colts' win
By Paul Kuharsky
Some interesting notes on the Colts from ESPN Stats & Information coming out of their win over the Bills.
When throwing into the end zone, Hilton is the man for Andrew Luck.
He’s thrown three touchdowns to Hilton on such throws this season, and has only three TDs to the rest of his options combined.
- To Hilton: Three-for-five, 11.6 yards per attempt, no interceptions.
- To others: Three-for-19, 2.2 yards per attempt, three interceptions.
Luck is 2-for-9 with two interceptions targeting Reggie Wayne in the end zone.
Luck scrambled for two conversions on third down against the Bills. He entered the game with seven third-down scrambles resulting in a first down this season, the most in the league.
Wayne had eight catches for 102 yards Sunday, including a season-high 54 yards after the catch. Against Buffalo, he averaged 6.8 yards after the catch. He came into the game averaging 2.7 yards after the catch, his lowest average over the past five seasons.
