Key Matchups: Week 4 Vs. Raiders

The Colts linebackers were abysmal covering the Raiders’ tight ends on Sunday. Walker and Okereke looked completely out of their element when asked to play zone coverage and the Raiders tight ends had an absolute field day. Derek Carr was 10/11 when targeting his tight ends and got 83 yards and a score. Sure, the Colts were without Darius Leonard, and Walker was forced to play out of position, but allowing those kind of numbers is inexcusable for a team with supposed playoff aspirations.

Like Kevin Bowen says, the coverage the Colts played here is horrible, especially considering the fact it was the 4th quarter, and if the Colts had stopped the Raiders there they would have had excellent field position.
