Colts’ Jeff Saturday Admits Clock Management Mistake on ‘MNF’

Down a touchdown with under two minutes to go on Monday night’s game vs. Pittsburgh, the Colts couldn’t execute a game-tying drive. Indianapolis’ game management specifically was criticized, as the Colts ended the game with two timeouts while allowing the clock to run down.

There was one notable play on the drive as quarterback Matt Ryan scrambled for 14 yards and was tackled in bounds, but the Colts decided not to stop the clock. On Tuesday, interim head coach Jeff Saturday admitted that it was a mistake not to call a timeout.

“I wish I had that third down back, and in all honesty, wish I would have called a timeout,” Saturday said, via The Athletic’s Stephen Holder.
