INDIANAPOLIS — Frank Reich thought he could exploit the Indianapolis Colts‘ tight end advantage. Defenses still haven’t solved it.Less than a year after helping the Philadelphia Eagles win their first Super Bowl http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/trysten-hill-jersey-cheap , Reich brought the philosophy to his first head coaching job and is getting similar results.“I did expect we were going to spread it around, that’s just kind of how we roll,” Reich said Monday, a day after beating Oakland. “Now it’s probably exceeded expectations, but the expectations were pretty high to start.”There’s been little to quibble with through the first half of the season.Only three tight ends in the league have more receptions than Eric Ebron (36), a free-agent signee who finally appears to be meeting the hype of a first-round draft pick. Only Antonio Brown (eight) has more touchdown catches than Ebron (seven).Pro Bowler Jack Doyle has 15 receptions in three games and caught his first scoring pass Sunday, giving Indy a league-high 12 TD catches among four tight ends.The group played so well Sunday, it pulled off a feat more rare than Adam Vinatieri becoming the NFL’s career scoring leader, Marlon Mack becoming the first Colts runner with back-to-back 100-yard games since 2007 and Andrew Luck avoiding a sack in a third straight game for the first time in his pro career.Ebron, Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox became the first tight end trio to each catch a TD pass in the same game since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger.And they did it in style.Cox’s first career score came on an acrobatic Jachai Polite Jersey , one-handed grab that Reich quickly dubbed one of the best catches he’s ever seen. It’s the first time fans witnessed what the former college basketball star and undrafted free agent can do on the football field.Ebron’s score came as he tap-danced along the sideline for the tying score in the third quarter.Doyle gave Indy the final lead change of the game with a 10-yard catch-and-run that ended with Doyle diving just inside the pylon.“What an awesome job our tight end group does to complement this offense, to complement the wideouts, to complement each other in the way we play,” Luck said. “I think there’s a lot of different personnel groups that run out on that field. It basically allows us to be successful in all those personnel groups, and I think that puts a lot of pressure on a defense.”It’s all by design.Reich saw how effective the tight ends could be during previous stints with the Colts, Chargers and the past two seasons in Philadelphia.So when he returned to Indy and found the reliable Doyle and Erik Swoope, another college basketball convert, on the roster, Reich decided to start building around tight ends. The Colts lured Ebron from Detroit, where he fell out of favor because of his reputation for drops Chuma Edoga Jersey , and signed Ryan Hewitt in early September after he was cut by Cincinnati.Alie-Cox has proved to be a pleasant surprise after spending last season on the Colts’ practice squad, reacquainting himself with a sport he hadn’t played since transferring to a non-football-playing high school in Virginia.“I bet in the last month there’s probably been three, four, maybe even five ‘wow moments’ on the practice field involving Mo, although the one in the game might have been better than all those we saw on the practice field,” Reich said. “I remember when we got here and Chris is telling me about Mo and saying he really thought Mo had something to him.”Now it’s translating to success on the field.Indy (3-5) heads into its bye week on a two-game winning streak, in large part because its tight ends have been able to stretch the field and continue to play their part in protecting Luck and creating holes for Mack.If they keep it up, the Colts could play their way back into the AFC South race. They’re just two games out of the division lead with home games looming against Jacksonville (3-5), Tennessee (3-4) and Miami (4-4) following the bye and the second-easiest schedule remaining.“As we’ve said all offseason, the tight ends are a point of strength for this team and this offensive roster Trevon Wesco Jersey ,” Reich said. “They showed up big (Sunday).”NOTE: Indy signed offensive tackle Antonio Garcia to the practice squad Monday.100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta Rookie linebacker Jerome Baker intercepted Sam Darnold and scored the only touchdown on a 25-yard return with 11 minutes left, and a resilient defense helped the Miami Dolphins beat the New York Jets 13-6 on Sunday.Darnold threw four interceptions and took four sacks, and the Jets went 2 for 15 on third and fourth down.The hobbled Dolphins endured another wave of injuries and the mysterious departure of safety Reshad Jones, who pulled himself out of the game. But their defense was much improved after three consecutive poor games.“We never panicked; we knew what our defense was capable of,” Baker said. “When we are executing and do our job and play together, we’re one of the best defenses out there.”The quality of the opposition helped the defense dominate, however, allowing Miami to win with only seven first downs.Darnold tried to rally his sputtering team from a 6-3 deficit, but following a punt the rookie took a high snap and made an ill-advised throw to tight end Eric Tomlinson. Baker stepped in front for his first career interception and scored untouched.“I didn’t throw it with confidence,” Darnold said. “I just alligator-armed it — threw it a little bit short.”T.J. McDonald and Walt Aikens made interceptions to end the Jets’ final two possessions.“The guys did a good job of complementary football Shareef Miller Jersey ,” Miami coach Adam Gase said. “They played together. They did a good job of stopping the run and making it as one-dimensional as possible.”The Dolphins (5-4) broke a two-game losing streak and won for only the second time in the past six games. Coach Adam Gase improved to 5-1 against the Jets, including two wins this year.The Jets (3-6) lost their third in a row and have scored 33 points during the skid. They’ve dropped nine of their past 10 road games dating to 2017.Darnold went 21 for 39 for 229 yards and a passer rating of 31.8. He came into the game tied for the NFL lead with 10 interceptions, and the four picks were a new high.“Two for sure he’d like to have back,” coach Todd Bowles said. “Back to the drawing board.”Cameron Wake and Akeem Spence had two sacks apiece for the Dolphins, who had allowed 102 points the previous three weeks.“Everybody playing together — front to back, side to side — and getting a win, that’s about as rewarding as it is,” Wake said.TO THE BENCHJones, whose tendency to freelance has been an issue, watched the second half from the sideline. Gase said he didn’t know whether Jones was hurt.“It sounds like he pulled himself out Zach Brown Jersey ,” Gase said. “I’ve just got to find out what happened there.”Jones didn’t talk to the media after the game.DOLPHINS SUBMiami totaled only 168 yards, but Brock Osweiler improved to 2-2 as a starter filling in for the injured Ryan Tannehill. Osweiler went 15 for 24 for 139 yards and took four sacks, but committed no turnovers.INJURY REPORTDolphins: LT Laremy Tunsil (knee) left in the fourth quarter. … RT Ja’Wuan James (knee) departed in the first half, but later returned. … CB Bobby McCain was evaluated for a concussion. … DE Robert Quinn limped off in the field in the closing minutes.Jets: Backup LB Tarell Basham (knee) left the game in the second half.FULL WEEKENDThe field looked worn but seemed not to be an issue less than 24 hours after the Miami Hurricanes and Duke played on it in a downpour.NATIONAL ANTHEMDolphins receiver Kenny Stills kneeled during the anthem and Quinn stood with his right fist raised, as they have done before other games.UP NEXTDolphins: play at Green Bay for the first time since 2010 on Nov. 11.Jets: play host to Buffalo on Nov. 11. The teams also meet on Dec. 9.
