There were two games this weekend that illustrated why good fantasy football performances are not necessarily good NFL performances. The first example was the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots. The Colts were down 31-3 in that game halfway through the fourth quarter. Suddenly, the Colts caught fire and score three touchdowns and made the score 31-24 with less than a minute to play. The Colts did not recover the onside kick and New England was never really in any danger of losing that game.
That did not stop RB Donald Brown from salvaging his fantasy day with 14 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown. Colts QB Dan Orlovsky had a big fantasy day with 353 yards passing, two touchdowns and an interception. WR Pierre Garcon salvaged his day with nine receptions for 150 yards and two touchdowns. The Colts offense put up some good fantasy numbers, even though most of the scoring production was too little too late.
