Weekly Milestones

Several Colts have a chance to move up in the the franchise record book against the Cardinals in week two.  If you like to track stats, watch for the following accomplishments this week:

QB Scott Tolzien has thrown for 344 yards as a Colt in the regular season which is good for 31st all-time.  If he passes for 200 yards against the Cardinals, he will move into 28th place and pass former Colts Blair Kiel (431), Kelly Holcomb (454), and Kerry Collins (481).

QB Jacoby Brissett threw for 51 yards in his Colts debut which moved him into 59th position.  A 200 yard performance in his second game would move him into 36th position passing players including P Rohn Stark (57), Mary Rypien (57), Sean Salisbury (68), Browning Nagle (69), Kerwin Bell (75), Charlie Whitehurst (150), and RB Tom Matte (246).

RB Frank Gore needs 19 rushing attempts to pass Donald Brown (551) for 15th most in franchise history  If he scores a rushing TD against the Rams he will pass Earl Campbell (74) and Leroy Kelly (74) and tie Clinton Portis (75) for 23rd on the NFL rushing TD list.  He is also only 153 rushing yards away from passing former Colts RB Eric Dickerson for 7th place in NFL history.

RB Robert Turbin will move into 76th place in Colts career rushing yards with 26 yards this week passing Ricky Williams (190).

RB Marlon Mack (pictured) is in 145th position in rushing yards after his NFL debut.  60 yards on the ground this week will help him crack the top 100 mark easing him past mostly quarterbacks, receivers, and kickers.

WR T.Y. Hilton will reach 6,000 receiving yards with 82 yards against the Cardinals and will pass Lenny Moore (6039) for 4th place with 122 yards.

WR Donte Moncrief needs 7 receptions to move him past Tom Mitchell (133) for 40th place.  If he records 88 receiving yards he will pass Ray Perkins (1538), Eddie Hinton (1584), and Joe Washington (1621) for 34th place.  His 16 receiving touchdowns currently ties him with Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie for 20th place in franchise history,  One more will move him into 19th place tied with Matt Bouza, Don McCauley, and Coby Fleener.

TE Jack Doyle will move into 46th place on the reception list if he catches 8 balls passing Anthony Gonzalez (99), Alan Ameche (101), and Kerry Cash (103).  66 receiving yards against the Cardinals will move him into 57th place passing Dan Edwards (843), Jacob Tamme (855), L.G. Dupre (866), Mary Boyer (898), and Buddy Young (899).

FS Darius Butler needs one pick against the Cardinals to join Jason Belser, Vontae Davis, and Ray Brown with 13 interceptions placing him in 23rd place in Colts history.

Head Coach Chuck Pagano needs one victory to reach 50 career wins.  He would become the 4th Colts coach to achieve this milestone joining Tony Dungy (85), Don Shula (71), and Weeb Ewbank (59).  (Note that Pagano’s record includes 9 wins in 2012 when Bruce Arians coached the Colts in Pagano’s absence.  Ironically, Pagano was credited with the wins but Arians was named the AP NFL Coach of the Year).
