From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 15): Robocop is patrolling the end zone again, just in time for a Week 16 matchup against the Cowboys. He is touchdown-dependent, but Allen is back to being one of the first options Andrew Luck looks for when the Colts are knocking on the door.

General News (Tue Dec 16): played 53 of the team's 68 offensive snaps in Week 15 against the Houston Texans, and Coby Fleener played in 40 of the snaps. It was necessary to have Allen on the field for much of the day in order to help block J.J. Watt. Allen also had a touchdown in the game.

Week 16: at Dallas Cowboys

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Andrew Luck posted 18/34 for 187 yards passing, two TDs and one interception vs. the Texans last week - unfortunately, the usual Texan-slayer, T.Y. Hilton, tweaked his hamstring during the game and was ineffective after the injury (eight targets for 4/50/0 receiving). Hakeem Nicks (two for 2/44/1) and Dwayne Allen (four for 2/16/1) were the recipients of Luck's TD passes last week, while Coby Fleener saw five targets for 2/32/0 receiving. We'll see if Luck can rev up this attack to it's normal high-octane level here in Week 16. The Cowboys' pass D is ranked 23rd in the NFL averaging 249.6 net passing yards allowed per game, with 20 passing TDs given up vs. 14 interceptions and 23 sacks generated so far this season (tied for 11th- and 28t-ranked, respectively). Mark Sanchez threw 17/28 for 219 net yards, zero TDs and two interceptions against the Cowboys last week; Jay Cutler stung this D with 32/46 for 341 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown two weeks ago. Luck and company have a good shot at getting back on track against the Cowboys' sub-par pass D.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 14 vs CLE (3 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Allen looked good in his return to the field on Sunday, but the Colts' overall struggles limited his chance at production. He was only targeted three times, and was frustrated by the Browns' physicality in the secondary at times. But Allen did draw a huge 35-yard pass interference penalty on the Colts' game-winning drive, and he played 58 snaps overall. He should get more opportunities against the Texans in Week 15.

2014 Week 15 vs HOU (4 / 2 / 16 / 1 rec)

The Colts' touchdown machine was back in action on Sunday, catching a three-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. Allen also caught a pass for a first down earlier in the drive, and could have had a chunk play on the game's first play but couldn't get to Luck's throw outside. But, when the offense bogged down in the second half, so did Allen's production. He wasn'
