First Colts Team to Beat Patriots in First Half since 2016 – NBC10 Philadelphia

blank

Things have gotten worse for New England Patriots in the first half against the Indianapolis Colts.

Thanks to a red zone interception for Mac Jones within a two-minute warning, it got so bad that the Colts ended the Patriots’ extended scoring streak in the first half.

By beating New England in the first 30 minutes, 17-0, Indianapolis became the first team to beat the Patriots on the scoreboard in the first half in 99 games, according to the NFL Network broadcast, which is the series longest active game in the NFL. .

The last team to take down New England in the first half? Buffalo Bills, who did so in Week 4 of the 2016 season in a game they won 16-0.

However, there are a lot of caveats from that game. The Bills faced a Patriots team down to their third defender, Jacoby Brissett, who started with a broken thumb. Tom Brady returned a week later after a four-match suspension.

There is no such excuse for New England tonight, which has entered the weekend atop the AFC East and in the race for the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

It’s been a long time since the Patriots have come down from such a first-half deficit: It’s not been since they went up against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI that they’ve come through such a hole.
