2. Is Kwity Paye about to breakout for the Indianapolis Colts?
The Indianapolis Colts first-round pick is starting to come around. Kwity Paye had four sacks as a rookie, followed it up with six sacks, and now he has two sacks in as many games. He may not keep this pace up, but eight sacks seems almost certain.
Paye also has six pressures, showing he is winning consistently, not just collecting a few sacks. Like Buckner, his competition has not been the stiffest so far. The Colts faced the Jaguars, and he saw rookie Anton Harrison in his NFL debut.
Then, they saw the Texans, who featured backup right tackle George Fant. Paye dominated this matchup, but the Texans had five backups across their defensive line.
So, is this a year-three breakout for the former first round pick, or is he just taking advantage of two advantageous matchups? It could be a mix.
This week, we will see a bit more from Kwity Paye. He gets Morgan Moses, who is coming off of a great game against Sam Hubbard. Moses had some issues against Will Anderson, but it looks like Anderson has hit the ground running in his NFL career.
If Paye is ready to break out, Moses could see similar issues to Anderson, because they bring a similar rush plan. However, if Paye is the paper tiger then Moses will wipe him out easier.
