Horseshoe Now 1-3
The not-ready-for-prime-time Indianapolis Colts lost their first national televised game to the Seattle Seahawks at Seattle last Sunday night, 46 to 18. The Seahawk defense dominated the Colts offensive line and their highly touted secondary put a blanket on the Horseshoe receivers. The Hawks defense returned 2 turnovers for touchdowns thus avenging a Colts safety against Russell Wilson. The Colts actually lead 15-10 at halftime but a brutal third quarter for the Indy boys sealed their fate. Rookie safety Malik Hooker did pick off his third interception of the year.
