  • It was his 20th-career game hitting the 300-yard passing mark and his first time hitting the 400-yard mark. It was the most passing yards by a Colts quarterback since Andrew Luck in Week 4 of 2018 vs. Houston (464).
  • Running back Jonathan Taylor led the team in rushing with 15 carries for 53 yards and one touchdown. He also led the team in receiving with three receptions for a single-game career-high 116 yards and one touchdown.
  • He tallied his first 100-yard receiving game and is the first Colt to register a 100-yard rushing game the previous week and follow it up with a 100-yard receiving game since Joseph Addai in Weeks 8 and 9 of 2007.
  • He passed Joseph Addai (1,488) for the third-most rushing yards by a Colts player in their first 20 career games.
  • Taylor scored a 76-yard touchdown reception on third-and-15 in the first quarter. It marked the longest receiving touchdown by a Colt since T.Y. Hilton's 80-yard touchdown in Week 9 of 2017 and the longest by a Colts running back since Marshall Faulk in Week 4 of 1998 (78).
  • Wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. compiled six receptions for 89 yards and one touchdown

  • Indianapolis held Baltimore to 86 rushing yards and broke the Ravens streak of 43 consecutive games with at least 100 rushing yards, which was tied for the most consecutive games in NFL history.

  • Defensive end Tyquan Lewis tallied four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks.
