Josh Robinson, Pat McAfee impress; Greg Toler disappoints

Here are some highs and lows in terms of individual performances from the Indianapolis Colts 36-10 loss over the Philadelphia Eagles:


Phillip Dorsett: The rookie out of Miami tied for the team lead in receptions with four and had a team-high 51 receiving yards. Dorsett ran good routes and showed that he has the speed to get by defensive backs. The only downside for Dorsett is that he fumbled after getting the ball stripped from behind following a catch across the middle of the field.

Pat McAfee: McAfee showed why he’s one of the premier punters in the NFL when he averaged 56 yards on his eight punts during the game. McAfee’s longest punt was for 65 yards. That was the good news. The bad news is that the punt was returned 92 yards for a touchdown by Kenjon Barner late in the first half.

Josh Robinson: The rookie out of Mississippi proved that he deserves to be in the mix to back up starter Frank Gore when he rushed for 44 yards on 10 attempts. Robinson scored the Colts’ lone touchdown when he broke off three tackles to score from 9 yards out in the third quarter. Robinson also had a reception for 11 yards.


Bryan Bennett: The Colts have to start preparing to find a quarterback to back up starter Andrew Luck because the current backup, Matt Hasselbeck, will be 40 years old in September. Bennett didn’t help his cause by throwing two interceptions and losing a fumble. He finished 4-of-16 for 35 yards.

Matt Hasselbeck: The veteran backup quarterback had several throws that were out of the reach of receivers that could have extended drives. Hasselbeck, who is in his third season as Luck’s backup, was 8-of-17 for 72 yards.

Greg Toler: Toler had two impressive pass breakups early in the game. But then you forgot about those plays when he misplayed a reception to Eagles rookie receiver Nelson Agholor. Agholor made Toler and the Colts pay by racing in for a 34-yard touchdown.
