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.
