This week’s “Back-Up of the Game” presented by Venyu is tight end Jack Doyle.
Taking one look at the snap counts from Monday night and it was clear the Colts were trying to impose their will via the ground against the Eagles.
Jack Doyle played half of the team’s offensive snaps with the Colts implementing several three-tight end sets.
Whether it was blocking as an h-back or making himself available in the passing game, Doyle provided the Colts another offensive weapon on Monday night.
The highlight for the Indianapolis native came late in the second quarter when he caught a two-yard touchdown for his first NFL score.
“It was cool to get a score to help the team,” Doyle said after the game. “Whatever helps the team. It was definitely good, but I wish we could have come out on top.”
Doyle also caught a 10-yard pass to end the third quarter. That drive ended with Ahmad Bradshaw’s seven-yard touchdown reception.
Going forward, the Colts now have shown opposing defenses that when Doyle is on the field there is still the same unpredictability that many people see with Dwayne Allen’s presence.
It was a bitter sweet night for the Cathedral High School product.
“It’s probably something I’ll look back on and appreciate it,” Doyle said of his first touchdown. “Like I said, just trying to do what they ask me to do to the best of my ability.”
