Quinton Dunbar watched in middle school as Larry Fitzgerald caught passes in the NFL.Years later http://www.thecoltsfootballauthentic.com/quenton-nelson-jersey-authentic , Fitzgerald was patting Dunbar on the helmet for a job well done.Dunbar helped shut down Fitzgerald and other receivers in Week 1, picking off Sam Bradford and looking like the kind of player the Washington Redskins envisioned when they converted him from wideout to cornerback. His next challenge is Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts' passing attack as the Redskins look to start 2-0 for the first time since 2011."Tough matchup," Dunbar said. "He's up there with the best of them in my opinion. You watch him, you see a guy who's tough, smart, understands defenses."Dunbar has already intercepted Carson Wentz, Eli Manning and Bradford in his career, evidence his instincts are worthy of the coaching staff's faith. He had to embrace the "heart and mentality" of being able to make tackles, and he had five at Arizona."I think it was one of his better games as a pro here," coach Jay Gruden said. "He's got to continue to make strides to get better and keep studying the game and the people he is covering."Dunbar should continue to get plenty of playmaking opportunities because he's starting opposite 2015 All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman. Luck, who missed all of 2017 with a shoulder injury, is coming off a 39 of 53 passing performance with 319 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Colts' season-opening loss to Cincinnati.Luck 鈥?and then Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers in Week 3 鈥?are significant tests for Dunbar, who insists he looks forward to every matchup and doesn't take anyone lightly. What he does is trust what he sees on film, combined with what coaches have taught him about the position. He's has gotten to the point where he's not a work in progress anymore."I've been comfortable for a while http://www.thecoltsfootballauthentic.com/malik-hooker-jersey-authentic ," Dunbar said. "(I'm) just trusting what the coaches wanted and the vision they had for me."Some things to watch when the Colts visit the Redskins:HURRICANE READYHurricane Florence shifting south is likely to spare the Colts and Redskins from even rain on Sunday, but players and coaches are prepared.Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri is three field goals away from tying Morten Andersen's career record of 565 and is ready in case the conditions aren't ideal."I don't know if you get a lot of practice in those types of conditions, you just have go out pregame, try and work through some stuff, kind of find out what the parameters are, and then the game dictates your attempts anyway," said Vinatieri, who won two Super Bowls with last-minute kicks and helped the Patriots win their first Super Bowl by making two kicks in the snow of a divisional-round game following the 2001 season. "The game sometimes dictates that you've got to go out and try a kick that normally, maybe, you wouldn't."Redskins QB Alex Smith has likewise played through everything during his NFL career, but doesn't have any secrets about dealing with wacky weather."It's tough: fundamentals, attention to detail when you handle the ball every single play in weather, and obviously that's a premium, you know, ball security Youth Ryan Kelly Jersey , ball handling, in the pocket and things like that," Smith said. "I wish I had some kind of secret sauce or something, but I don't. I just try to do the best I can."PROTECTION PLANLuck was sacked twice last week and took seven additional hits.While offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni was impressed with the effort, the Colts' offensive line was not at its optimal. Longtime left tackle Anthony Castonzo missed the game with an injured hamstring, forcing Joe Haeg to move from the right side to the left, and veteran J'Marcus Webb played right tackle.This week, Castonzo is expected to be back and Haeg is likely to swing back to the right side 鈥?where he spent most of his first two NFL seasons. Webb went on injured reserve with a hamstring injury Tuesday."It's extremely tough because you want to be out there, helping the team," Castonzo said. "So I'm looking forward to getting out there, yes."DOUBLE THREATWashington's 182 rushing yards in Week 1 led the NFL as Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson put together the mix-and-match, one-two punch Gruden hoped they'd be. While Thompson is a weapon in the passing game and can turn on the speed outside, Peterson has the straightahead style and ability to bounce runs anywhere."When he's on time, he's great," left tackle Trent Williams said. "When he's not on time Womens Rigoberto Sanchez Jersey , he improvises and is still able to do some great things. He's just a Hall of Fame back and he's one of the best to ever touch the football, so he's going to allow you things like that where he just makes plays."AP Sports Writer Michael Marot contributed.Revisiting 5 Colts To Watch in Week 1 Against The Bengals The Colts have dropped their first game of the season to the Bengals 34-23 in heartbreaking fashion. Although it is hard to look at the positives after a tough loss, there is a lot to be happy about in this game. The Colts are a young team that played well but just ultimately couldn’t get it done.So before we shift our weekly focus to the upcoming matchup with a talented Redskins team, lets look back on my 5 Colts players to watch from last week and see how they did this past weekend against the Bengals:Anthony Castonzo, LT (or whoever starts at LT):Anthony Castonzo came into this game as a game time decision and was inactive for the game. As I predicted in my preview piece for the game, Joe Haeg ended up getting the start in his place with J’Marcus Webb starting at right tackle. Overall Haeg held his own in pass protection and was about average in the run game. His pass blocking was especially commendable in this game as he made his first career start at left tackle against a very good Bengals pass rush.The most promising aspect of Haeg’s performance was that Luck had time to get rid of the ball. Even though a lot of what the Colts were doing involved quick passes, Luck did pass the ball 53 times and was only sacked twice. Neither of those sacks came from young budding star pass rusher Carl Lawson, who Haeg was tasked with blocking in passing situations on Sunday. Overall it was a good spot start for Haeg and hopefully Castonzo can play next week against Washington.Eric Ebron, TE: I did say in my preview article that Eric Ebron will be the X-Factor for this Colts offense as he has the athleticism and ability to be a matchup problem for any defense. Reich obviously thought the same way. We heard all offseason by multiple reporters and coaches that Ebron was going to be heavily involved in this offense. Well he definitely was involved this past Sunday with an impressive 4 catches for 51 yards and a touchdown stat line. Ebron was deployed all over the place this weekend in order to get the best matchup possible. With Jack Doyle and Ryan Grant mostly being used underneath, Ebron was the main target in the intermediate to long game. His ability in space and athleticism were on full display on his 26 yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Overall, it was a very good debut for Ebron with the Colts and I expect his role to expand even more after this promising start.Darius Leonard, LB:It may not have been the flashiest game by Darius Leonard, but he was very solid in his rookie debut. In his first career game, Leonard was credited with 9 total tackles and a fumble recovery. In run defense, he was pretty solid in general. He could’ve taken some better angles in some moments and filled run lanes a bit better in other moments but overall not too many negatives in that aspect of his game. He played his role well in pass coverage as well as he wasn’t noticeably beat at any point either.This game was just really solid from Leonard outside of a few rookie mistakes. Leonard has been really impressive so far in his young career with the Colts and I fully expect him to continually progress into a really good starter. He will need to be on his “A” game this next week though as Washington rolls into town coming off a performance where running backs Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson are coming off of huge games.Malik Hooker Youth Jordan Wilkins Jersey , SAF:Hooker didn’t have a great game this past Sunday but like I mentioned last week a lot of his play doesn’t really show up in the box score. By that, I mean that his presence in the backend of the field brings an intimidation factor to quarterbacks and forces them to not take as many deep shots. Besides one long touchdown pass to AJ Green, who is one of the best in the game, Hooker’s effect was felt as the Bengals rarely attacked the Colts downfield. That touchdown to Green was the one lowlight for Hooker though. Overall, Hooker finished with 4 tackles in his first game back.I fully expect Hooker to up his play as the season goes on. He was on pace for an excellent season last year before that horrible ACL injury that cost him his season. Although he did play well on Sunday, there is definitely room for improvement. As the season progresses though, I do expect Hooker to solidify himself as one of the NFL’s top young safeties. Andrew Luck, QB:LUCK IS BACK. Andrew Luck was dealing this Sunday. After a poor decision on his first pass which resulted in a red zone interception, Luck completed a career high 39 passes on 53 attempts for 319 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also boasted a 73.6% completion percentage and finished as Pro Football Focus’ 6th ranked QB of the week. Not bad for a guy coming off of shoulder rehab and not playing for the last year and a half. This was as good a start as anybody could have hoped for from Luck. Everything appears to still be there from pocket presence, mobility, and arm strength. If Luck can continually churn out performances like this last weekend, the Colts will have a chance to win each and every game this year. Overall, Luck playing as well as he did is reason enough to be hopeful this season as a Colts fan.
