Welcome to Week Five of the 2018 NFL Regular season, where tonight we will see Tom Brady matchup against Andrew Luck, a matchup that has been very one-sided in Brady’s favor since Luck entered the league. Julian Edelman also returns tonight, and the Colts secondary is banged up, so this is a night for the Patriots offense to potentially explode. We’ll have the inactive players listed for you shortly.

Inactive List- Patriots

OL- Cole Croston, OL Ted Karras, CB Eric Rowe, CB Eric Rowe, DL Geneo Grissom, DE Derek Rivers, DL Keionta Davis

Inactive List- Colts

TE Jack Doyle, RB Marlon Mack, WR T.Y. Hilton, CB Quincy Wilson, DT Hasan Ridgeway, CB Kenny Moore, OT Denzelle Good

FIRST QUARTER

15:00- The Patriots will get the ball first; we will get to see Edelman early. Touchback, Patriots start the series at the 25.

14:55- Nine yard catch by Edelman; welcome back, 2nd & 1…

14:21- No gain on the run by White, 3rd & 1…

13:50- Michel runs for a gain of two, 1st & 10…

13:20- Patterson takes the bubble screen and runs for 10 yards; 1st & 10…

12:44- Dorsett makes a catch for a gain of four, 2nd & 6…

12:20- Edelman for 13 more, 1st & 10…

11:43- Gronk was wide open on a 20 yard throw-&-catch; 1st & 15 after David Andrews jumped offside…

11:04- White with the catch and a gain of six, 2nd & 4…

10:29- White again, this time on a screen for a gain of six; 1st & Goal…

10:08- No gain by White on the run, 2nd & Goal…

9:35- Edelman takes the quick pass and runs to the goal line, 3rd & Goal…

8:58- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! Brady and the offense put on a clinic on a drive that ends with a touchdown catch by Cordarrelle Patterson. Patriots 7, Colts 0

8:17- SACK!! Flowers and Chung went right off the edge and smashed Luck for a loss of nine. Without T.Y. Hilton, the Colts will have trouble on 3rd down.

7:27- Three-and-out, exactly what the Patriots wanted from their defense. Edelman is back deep to return the punt; he returned it 11 yards to the Colts 49. Good field position, and the offense was rolling, so this is exactly what the Colts were trying to avoid.

7:11- White with a gain of four on the catch, 2nd & 6…

6:40- Sony Michel can’t get to the outside; gain of one, 3rd & 5…

6:16- Edelman with a drop when he was wide open; he has to make that play, I don’t care if he is rusty. Colts offense takes over, missed opportunity for the Patriots.

6:03- No pass rush leads to a 24 yard play; they should be blitzing as much as possible against this depleted team.; 2nd & 10…

5:15-1st down catch by Ebron; that looked way to easy.

4:25- Grant drops the pass, 2nd & 10…

4:20- Gilmore called for a hold, automatic 1st down.

3:51- NO PASS RUSH!! BLITZ THESE GUYS!!!

3:30- Hines picks up another 1st down; 1st & 10…

2:40- It is very hard to watch this defense; 2nd & 2…

1:05- Pass to Ebron is incomplete; 3rd & 9…

1:01- Incomplete, and Adam Vinatieri will come in to attempt the field goal.

:58- NO GOOD!! I had a feeling he was going to miss that; kickers get old too. Patriots 7, Colts 0 p.s- the defense was NOT GOOD on that series.

:19- White with a great juke move that clears enough space for him to run for 18 after the catch in the flat. That is the end of the 1st quarter, a quarter where the Patriots offense looked very good, and the defense was Jekyll & Hyde. Patriots 7, Colts 0

SECOND QUARTER

14:39- 15-yard catch and run by Michel; 1st & 10…

14:16- Catch by Gronk for 7, and 15 tacked on for a hit to Brady’s head. 1st & 10…

13:45- 15-yard run by Michel, great play; 1st & Goal…

13:21- Michel gets stuffed at the one, 2nd & Goal…

12:14- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! Michel should have been credit on the previous play, but they didn’t challenge. Instead, Brady sneaks it in for six, and Gostkowski drill the extra point to make it a true seven. Patriots 14, Colts 0

11:03- 10:02- 1st down reception by the Colts, and they are moving again. Once again the pass rush is non-existent

9:38- Incomplete pass to Pascal, 2nd & 10…

9:26- Three yard run, 3rd & 7 for the Colts…

9:01- Incomplete pass, and this time Vinatieri connects from 52 yards out. New England still holds an 11-point lead, but they really should start sending a blitz every play on defense. Sounds crazy? Well, they did that the entire 2014 season, and look what happened. BLITZ!!! Patriots 14, Colts 3

8:49- Brady misses White on a WIDE OPEN wheel route; that would have been six points.

8:38- Incomplete pass to Gordon, 3rd & 10…

8:30- Tough possession for Brady; overthrow to White and an underthrown ball to Gronk on 3rd down, and the Patriots are forced to punt. Let’s see some pressure!!

7:53- Four yard run. 2nd & 6…Colts called for a false start, make it 2nd & 11…

6:26- Holding on the Colts, which will now make it 3rd & 17…

6:02- Adam Butler makes a nice play to force the punt; Edelman had a 10-yard return, but it was negated by a block in the back. 1st & 10, Patriots, from their own 32.

5:18- Michel looked like he was going to run for 20, but a shoe-string tackle causes a one-yard loss…

4:43- White with the catch and run for 15; 1st & 10…

3:59- Fake reverse and a great throw to Hogan for a gain of 21; 1st & 10, and the Patriots are on the move…

3:24- Michel with a strong five yard run; 2nd & 5…

2:49- Great run by Michel for 15; this kid is legit, don’t listen to the fools on sports radio.

2:14- Five-yard run, 2nd & 5, and we have reached the two-minute warning. The Patriots could use another touchdown; they kickoff to start the 2nd half, so an 18-point lead could be crucial.

2:00- White with a gain of four, 3rd & 1…

1:48- It appeared that Michel was stopped short, but he got the 1st; 1st & Goal from the Colts six…

1:43- Holding on Cannon, what a braincramp….

1:33- The Patriots get nine back quickly on the pass to White, 2nd & Goal from the six.

1:24- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! Brady finds White again, his eighth catch of the game. The Patriots offense looks unstoppable tonight. Patriots 21, Colts 3

1:03- 1st down catch by Rogers, 1st & 10, Colts…

:43- Ebron with the catch for seven, 2nd & 3…

:38- INTERCEPTION!! Chung, with the assisted pressure of Adrian Clayborn, makes the pick, and the Patriots have time to score again.

:32- Dorsett makes the catch for a gain of 16; 1st & 10, Patriots, from the Colts 34…

:27- Incomplete, but it was a smart play as Brady was pressured and nobody downfield was open; 2nd & 10…

:22- Six yard catch by Hogan, and they take their first of three timeouts. Gronk jumped offside, 3rd & 9…

:17- Gain of five for James White on the catch, and the Patriots will attempt the field goal.

:13- Gostkowski connects from 45 yards out, and the Patriots turn the Chung interception into three points. Having a three touchdown lead going into the half is a great place to be. Patriots 24, Colts 3

:00- The Colts run it for nine to finish the half, a half dominated by New England.

Patriots 24, Colts 3

HALFTIME

THIRD QUARTER

15:00- Gain of one for Hines, 2nd & 9…

14:00- 1st down completion for Indy…

13:38- Incomplete pass, 2nd & 10..

13:31- Hines runs for four, 3rd & 6…

12:51- McCourty breaks up the pass, and the Colts are forced to punt. Edelman let it go, and the offense will take over at their own six.

12:32- Four yard catch by Edelman, 2nd & 6….

12:00- Weird throw by Brady, Gordon was open, but something went wrong there; 3rd & 6…

11:57- Three-&-out for the Patriots, and that was kind of ugly.The Colts get a huge punt return of 32 yards and are setup on the Patriots 35.

11:44- Wilkins runs for five, 2nd & 5…

11:05- Gain of 11 on the run, 1st & 10…

10:29- The Colts try to run a trap and the Patriots snuff it out immediately; 2nd & 10…\

9:48- Touchdown, Colts. Horrible coverage by Devin McCourty, and the Colts are back in this game. Patriots 24, Colts 10

9:43- Michel with a nice return to the Patriots 32…

9:36- Toss to Michel goes for two; 2nd & 8…

9:03- Gain of five on the catch by Edelman, 3rd & 4…

8:28- Brady was being sacked but gunned a pass to Gronk for 15 yards; GREAT play by Brady. 1st & 10…

7:48- Gronkowski picks up 15 more on the catch; 1st & 10 from the Colts 32…

7:34- Michel runs for two; the Colts run defense has been stout this quarter. 2nd & 8…

6:57- Hogan can’t make the EASY catch, the ball bounces off his hands to a Colt for the interception. Hogan has been horrible this season, and plays like that are not going to help things. The Patriots defense, which is well rested now, needs to step up and not allow a score on this drive. Patriots 24, Colts 10

6:57- Three-yard run, 2nd & 7…

6:17- Wilkins with a gain of five, 3rd & 3…

* We had technical issues last night that prevented me from finishing the live blog. The issue has been fixed, but for those that were following, I am very sorry for the inconvenience.
