After the Indianapolis Colts came close to the New England Patriots early in the second half, the home team is back in control: after Tom Brady and Josh Gordon added to the team’s seven-point lead cornerback Jonathan Jones and running back Sony Michel teamed up to increase New England’s lead even more.
First, New England’s defense made a big play: a pass breakup by Jason McCourty allowed Jonathan Jones to pick off Andrew Luck and return the pick 28 yards to the Colts 34-yard line:

On the very next play, first-round rookie running back Sony Michel found the end zone:

The 34-yard run is the rookie’s second touchdown of his career and caps another impressive performance. Overall, Michel has carried the football 16 times for 92 yards and that one score.
