Colts host Browns on Saturday

The Indianapolis Colts will return home on Saturday to host the Cleveland Browns in the third game of the preseason. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Last week, the Colts bounced back from a Week 1 loss to defeat the New York Giants, 20-12, at MetLife Stadium.

Offensively, QB-Andrew Luck compiled a 133.7 passer rating, completing 9-of-13 passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns. WR-Reggie Wayne scored on a 28-yard throw while WR-T.Y. Hilton caught an 18-yard touchdown pass. Hilton’s touchdown reception marked the second-straight week in which he has scored in the preseason.

Defensively, the Colts were effective in keeping the Giants out of the end zone as New York went 0-for-4 in the red zone. The Colts also kept pressure on the Giants quarterbacks all game, tallying 6.0 total sacks from four different players. DT-Drake Nevis and OLB-Caesar Rayford led the way with 2.0 sacks apiece, while CB-Marshay Green and OLB-Erik Walden recorded their first sacks of the preseason. Rayford now leads the Colts with 3.0 total sacks through the first two preseason games.

The Browns have won their first two preseason games, defeating the St. Louis Rams, 27-19, in Week 1 and Detroit Lions, 24-6, in Week 2. QB-Brandon Weeden has completed 18-of-25 passes for 229 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 139.8 rating through the first two games.
