The Indianapolis Colts (7-5) are riding a four-game winning streak for the first time since 2018 following a wild 31-28 overtime win against the Tennessee Titans (4-8) on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
Coming back from a 17-7 deficit at halftime, the Colts fought their way to force overtime on the road. It wasn’t always pretty, and there certainly were moments when it appeared the winning streak was going to come to an end.
However, Shane Steichen’s squad continues to show fight, a testament to the culture that is being built quickly under the first-year head coach.
Here’s a look at the snap counts on offense, defense and special teams from the Week 13 win, followed by our analysis below:
Special Teams: 37
- Unsurprisingly, RB Zack Moss (94%) dominated the backfield snaps and took 100% of the running back carries in Jonathan Taylor’s absence.
- Rookie Blake Freeland (96%) replaced RT Braden Smith, who injured his knee on the opening drive and didn’t return.
- With a fully healthy tight end room, the snaps were pretty evenly distributed between Andrew Ogletree (39%), Kylen Granson (34%) and Mo Alie-Cox (34%).
- There was more of a split at free safety between Rodney Thomas II (67%) and Nick Cross (36%) so that will be something to monitor moving forward.
- Ronnie Harrison Jr. (26%) continues to serve as the No. 3 linebacker following Shaquille Leonard’s departure. He more than tripled his snaps from Week 12.
- The rotation at the one-technique will mostly come to an end with Grover Stewart set to return from his suspension this week.
- CB Tony Brown (84%) and LB Segun Olubi (84%) led all Colts players in special teams snaps.
- S Nick Cross (73%), LB Grant Stuard (73%), S Ameer Speed (70%) and S Trevor Denbow (70%) also saw significant special teams snaps.
- WR D.J. Montgomery (38%) and WR Isaiah McKenzie (38%) led all offensive players in special teams snaps.
