Jeff Saturday Explains Not Calling Timeout After Key Play in Loss to Steelers

If the back half of this Colts season is a rehearsal for interim coach Jeff Saturday, the end to Monday night’s loss to the Steelers likely won’t earn him a passing grade.

Indianapolis fell to Pittsburgh on Monday, 24–17, with Saturday squandering some valuable time on his team’s final drive thanks to a failure to effectively use his timeouts.

The Matt Ryan-led offense took over at the Colts’ own seven-yard line with 3:52 left in the game. The team moved down the field at a relatively leisurely pace, but found itself in a time crunch in the last 90 seconds or so of game time.
