INDIANAPOLIS — The Cincinnati Bengals were credited with just one quarterback hit and one sack Thursday night in their preseason finale against the Indianapolis Colts.
Accordingly, the Indianapolis offensive line was recognized for such a standout effort — three times over.
Pro Football Focus featured not one, not two but three Colts offensive linemen on its preseason Week 4 “Team of the Week,” as left tackle Le’Raven Clark, left guard Mark Glowinski and right tackle Joe Haeg combined to allow just one combined quarterback pressure on 95 combined pass protection snaps.
Here’s what PFF’s Sam Monson had to write about Clark, who earned a game grade of 80.2:
“On the field for 51 snaps of pass protection, Clark more than held his own for the Colts, surrendering just one hurry and earning a PFF grade of 86.1.”
Glowinski, meanwhile, earned a game grade of 86.6:
“A former starter on the Seahawks offensive line, Glowinski was a member of the Colts unit that featured some high-level displays in their final preseason encounter. In 22 snaps of pass protection, Glowinski didn’t allow a single pressure.”
And, last but not least, Haeg earned an impressive 87.3 grade for the game:
“Another member of the Colts finds their way onto the final preseason team of the week in the shape of Haeg. The former fifth-round pick didn’t surrender any pressure across 22 pass-blocking snaps against Cincinnati.”
No members of the Colts’ defense made the cut for that side of the ball for PFF’s “Team of the Week,” although cornerback Pierre Desir (who earned a 90.6 game grade in limited action) and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway (who earned a game grade of 87.9) both were standouts in the Colts’ 27-26 come-from-behind victory to wrap up the preseason with a 3-1 record.
