Matt Ryan Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have had a brutal season with quarterback Matt Ryan under center, and things did not get better for him or Indianapolis on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.

It was an embarrassing performance from Ryan, turning the ball over four times in a brutal 54-19 loss.

Indianapolis kept it close through three quarters, but Dallas completely ran away with the game in the fourth.

The Cowboys outscored the Colts 33-0 in the fourth quarter, which set a team record for the most points scored in the fourth quarter of any game.

To show how truly awful this quarter was for the Colts, Indianapolis scored 33 points total in their last two games.

Much of this blame had to be placed on Matt Ryan for some very untimely turnovers, and the NFL world is absolutely blasting him on social media Sunday night.

Some are even proposing that Ryan should retire after this disastrous season in Indianapolis.

Ryan has clearly been far past his prime this year for the Colts, and the stats back up that notion. The veteran quarterback leads the NFL in both fumbles and interceptions with 13 of each on the year following Sunday’s game.

It’s hard to see exactly where both the Colts and Ryan go from here. They thankfully head into their bye week in Week 14, but face another difficult opponent in the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15.

Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday ultimately decided to name Ryan the starter after previous head coach Frank Reich decided to bench him for Sam Ehlinger. That decision will certainly be put to the test after this horrific performance.
