NFL: Duel of soporific investments to the advantage of the Colts

Follow Thursday night’s game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos starting at 8 p.m. on RDS and with the Blitz preview.

Summary Colts v. Broncos

Chase McLaughlin scored his fourth field goal of the game in overtime, Russell Wilson threw an incomplete pass into the end zone on fourth down to the Denver Broncos’ right of reply and the Indianapolis Colts posted a 12-9 victory in an edition of Thursday night football devoid of a touchdown that will not go down in history.

McLaughlin forced overtime with a 31-yard field goal with eight seconds on the clock in the fourth quarter and followed that up with a 48-yard kick in overtime. He also had field goals for 52 and 51 yards earlier in the game.

Opposite Brandon McManus responded with passes for 33, 44 and 45 yards while veteran quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan and their respective offenses were unable to generate any pace.

Wilson completed 21 of 39 passes for 274 yards with two interceptions.

Ryan was 26-for-41 for 251 yards, also with two interceptions.

Deprived of their star running back Jonathan Taylor due to an ankle injury, the Colts (2-2-1) had to deal with the injury of his reserve Nyheim Hines in their first sequence on offense.

After grabbing a short pass from Matt Ryan on third down, Hines was hit hard by three Broncos players. After getting to his feet, Hines looked very shaken and a teammate and a member of the Broncos coaching staff had to help him to keep him from falling to the ground.

Hines left the game under NFL concussion protocol.

The Broncos (2-3) lost the services of left tackle Garett Bolles, who left the game in a cart after suffering a left leg injury in the final minutes of the game.

Hines leaves the match completely stunned
