The Indianapolis Colts thought that quarterback Sam Ehlinger would save their season. That’s what head coach Frank Reich must have thought when he made the switch.

However, since the move was made to bench veteran signal-caller Matt Ryan, the Colts have dropped two straight games. At this time, this move does not appear to have worked out.

The latest defeat has dropped the team to 3-5-1 on the season. Indianapolis has dropped three in a row, including a 19-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans with Ryan as the starter.

The team had just three points in their latest loss on Sunday against the New England Patriots. It was their worst scoring output in a game since Week 2 when they were shut out 24-0 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

If something changes soon, Reich may be without a job. He has already fired offensive coordinator Marcus Brady before their game with the Patriots.

Brady took the heat for the team having just 17 or fewer points in five of the last eight games. The three-point performance has to be on Reich.

The Colts had just 121 yards against the Patriots, which falls squarely on Reich. He didn’t name an interim offensive coordinator after Brady was fired.

Reich claimed that Brady was not the scapegoat for the Colts’ struggle. But someone has to be blamed now for what is going on with the team.

Ehlinger had 103 passing yards against the Patriots. He also threw an interception.

He also led the team with 39 rushing yards.

After the sack totals were taken off the Colts, the team was left with 43 passing yards. And 78 rushing yards.

Indianapolis was 0-14 on third down. They were also 0-2 on fourth down.

The team performed better with Brady as offensive coordinator in his last game. The team had 324 total yards against the Washington Commanders.

Ehlinger had 201 passing yards. However, after the sack totals were deducted, the Colts had 189 passing yards. The team also had 135 rushing yards.

The team went 5 of 12 on third downs in the game.
