The Colts weren’t looking hot early in the first quarter. Not only was the team without quarterback Andrew Luck, but backup Scott Tolzien became the real-life ‘This is Fine’ cartoon after just one drive.
But you have to take any small victory in stride, which is exactly what punter Pat McAfee did. What’s the point of punting it on fourth down when things already seem bleak? GO FOR IT.
It worked, and the best part is that Pat celebrated the 35-yard pass with the Vinny Mac/Connor McGregor strut. His mom is watching, and she’s probably very proud of her son for making the completion/not getting his face kicked in.
