Bowen: "Expect a heavy dose of Marlon Mack early on"

October 17, 2018 - 5:57 pm

For an in-depth look at the Buffalo Bills' Week 7 opponent, the Indianapolis Colts, Schopp & the Bulldog welcomed Kevin Bowen onto WGR Sports Radio 550. Bowen has covered the Colts since 2012, and is a multi-media contributor for the flagship station of Indiana sports.

Here is some of the insight provided by Bowen from his time with Schopp & the Bulldog.


Bowen on the Colts' offense:

"Their pass-to-run balance has been about 70-30, 75-25 pass over run.  There's been no issues with Andrew Luck and his arm strength, either."


Bowen on the Colts' rushing attack:

"They stayed with the run the most in Marlon Mack's first game back, even when they were down two and three scores.  [Head coach] Frank Reich is a big Mack fan.  The Colts were using two rookies early in the season."


Bowen on what to anticipate:

"Expect a heavy dose of [Marlon] Mack early on, going up against one of the better defense in the National Football League in Buffalo."


Bowen on Frank Reich:

"The fans like him.  A big reason is because they really hate Josh McDaniels.  What fans have appreciated from Reich the most is his aggressive nature and his innovative, creative mind offensively."


Bowen on T.Y. Hilton:

"He knows he needs to be back out there.  When you practice full on a Wednesday like he did, usually that means you'll be ready to go."


Bowen on the Colts surrounding Luck with talent:

"I think they have to.  The biggest gripe of the fans here is that [Indianapolis] didn't do enough in free agency.  It's not a scary roster outside of the first three or four names.  They started the cheapest defense in Week 6, and Sam Darnold carved them up."


Buffalo visits Indianapolis in Lucas Oil Stadium this Sunday.  Kick-off is set for just after 1:00 p.m.
