Cold, Hard Football Facts for Dec 30, 2013

2 of 8


-Putting much of their offense in Andrew Luck's hands, the Colts rank third least in Negative Pass Play percentage. A mere 6.84 percent of dropbacks end in a sack or a pick.

-The Colts have turned the ball over just 14 times, four less than any other team in the NFL. Their four fumbles lost are also the lowest, with the next best teams losing six.

-Indy is 6-2 at home, with two of those wins coming over each conference's best team: Seattle (34-28 in Week 5) and Denver (39-33 in Week 7).

-The Colts defense has recovered an impressive 12 fumbles, and held four opponents (including the 49ers and Chiefs) under 10 points. Those wins over the 49ers and Chiefs both came on the road.

KEY MATCHUP: You might not think it with the disappointment of the Trent Richardson trade, but Indianapolis actually ranks 12th in rushing yards per attempt, with 4.26. That's because Donald Brown averages 5.26 YPA on 102 carries.

The Colts are 9-1 when they run for over 100 yards as a team (thus they're 2-4 when they don't). Kansas City is 5-5 when they allow 100 yards, meaning all five team losses came when their opponent cleared the century mark. There's Indy's opening.
