Stock up, Stock down in Colts’ win over Jaguars

Colts Wire logo Colts Wire 11/12/2018 Kevin Hickey

The Indianapolis Colts (4-5) got off to a strong start for the second half with a 29-26 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6) on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

This game was truly a tale of two halves as the Colts dominated the first half of the game but failed to score a single point once the second half got underway.

Here is the stock up, stock down from the Colts' win on Sunday:

Stock Up | Kenny Moore | CB

The Valdosta State product has gone from an undrafted free agent following the 2017 NFL Draft to now being the Colts' best cornerback regardless of the scheme they are running.

Moore made several big plays against the Jaguars on Sunday working primarily in the slot. He was credited with two pass breakups but impacted more throws than that. His big play came when he forced the game-sealing fumble with under two minutes left.

Had Moore not punched that ball out, the Colts likely lose the game or head into overtime at best.

Stock Down | Arthur Maulet | CB

While Moore had the best day among cornerbacks, Maulet is the one that gets pegged with the worst day. He struggled when working in press coverage and allowed the 80-yard touchdown to Donte Moncrief in the first quarter.

Maulet played 18 snaps (24 percent) and while all of his snaps weren't bad, he did allow some vital completions, and they typically came when he was working in man coverage.

Stock Up | Tyquan Lewis | DL

The Colts' finally got to see what Lewis can bring to the table after selecting him in the second round (No. 64 overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

While most of the pass rushers couldn't make much of an impact on Sunday, Lewis was solid both against the run and applying pressure on Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.

Lewis only recorded one quarterback hit in the win, but he was the only one to make that kind of impact on the defensive line.

Stock Down | Pass Rush

While Lewis is a part of the "Stock Up" portion, the Colts' pass rush doesn't get the love as they struggled to apply pressure again on Bortles, which has been a recurring theme in recent weeks.

After recording 17 sacks through the first four games, the Colts have recorded just four sacks in their last five games. The defense has suffered from it, and it is an issue they need to fix if they want to make a playoff run.

Stock Up | Mark Glowinski | RG

The entire offensive line deserves a bump for their performance on Sunday, but Glowinski shined against the Jaguars both in pass protection and when run blocking in space.

Glowinski has been the Colts' biggest surprise on the offensive side of the ball, and he seems to be hitting his groove halfway through the 2018 season. He put his talents on display Sunday locking down the interior offensive line against the Jaguars' stout front seven.
