The Indianapolis Colts (1-4) found themselves nearly pulling off an upset in prime-time before a historical fourth-quarter collapse resulted in a 31-25 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens (4-1) on Monday night.
Though it was a valiant effort from quarterback Carson Wentz, who enjoyed a career day leading the offense, it was a shameful finish from the defense—a unit that couldn’t make a stop in the final 12 minutes of regulation.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the devastating loss on national television:
Colts have to start thinking about the future here soon. One big decision will be what to do with Wentz with the season spiraling. He’s played fine but you can’t lose a non-playoff first round pick. It’s inexcusable to lose that pick

The Colts had a 97% chance to win this game after the Blankenship field goal to make the score 25-9.
The Colts defense gave up FOUR STRAIGHT touchdown drives to the Ravens. It took them less than 15 minutes all together.

Really hope someone trades the Colts six offensive tackles and four cornerbacks for Marlon Mack.

Here’s the reality: This #Colts team sucks. They aren’t good enough to win games they should. They need to bench Carson Wentz and salvage their first round pick, because without a real solution at quarterback, they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
