His three touchdowns came from 27 completions for 353 yards.
Even though Doyle failed to seal a potential touchdown in the early moments of the game, he scored a game-winning one with only 1:55 from 7 yards. Immediately before this scenario, Delanie Walker, the Titans tight end, tied the score at 20 with a spirited touchdown. With 6:02 on the clock, Tennessee led their opponents at 23-20, which led to the coach instructing McNary at length to create another touchdown. McNary said that the bench advised him to stay focused on the game despite their opponent’s lead, which he adhered to along with the Colts defense. McGill almost immediately grabbed the ball from Mariota to give Robert Mathis who made a 14-yard run for another touchdown.
Doyle stated that Andrew has all the qualities of a leader and the entire team looks up to him for improvement in their performance. McNary added that Luck could make superb plays under pressure to inspire their teammates to fight on, making him an accountable player. With Luck’s big arm, the QB can easily pinpoint secondary receivers with his unique knack.
The next two scheduled games for the Colts are against Kansas City at home on the road against Green Bay.
