Week 3: vs Indianapolis Colts
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Chad Henne got spammed for ten sacks last week, costing his team -70 yards. Tentative and surrounded with young receivers, Henne managed just 14/28 for 193 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown while being ground into the dust. The one weapon who scored last week, Marcedes Lewis, suffered a severe high ankle sprain and was sent to IR-designated to return this week (he's out until at least Week 12 now). Aside from Lewis, the Robinsons (Allen Robinson, six targets for 4/75/0 receiving, and Denard Robinson, two for 2/14/0) were the main targets for Henne when he wasn't eating grass at Washington.
The Colts' pass D ranks 28th in the NFL averaging 295.0 yards allowed per game, with four passing scores given up vs. one interception generated. The Colts are tied for 30th in the NFL with just one sack - it may be hard for them to plant Henne during this upcoming game. Last week, Nick Foles was not sacked or hit on his way to 21/37 for 331 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown.
Henne is sore this week after the debacle at Washington, but he actually has a good matchup against the weak Colts' pass D this week.
