The Indianapolis Colts defeated the Tennessee Titans 27-13 for their first win of the season this past Sunday. It was also the first victory for Colts quarterback Dan Orlovsky as a starter in the NFL. Late in the 4th quarter 2009 1st round draft choice Donald Brown, with some assistance from his QB, had this 80-yard TD run.
Orlovsky is in his first season with the Colts after previously spending time with the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans. Being new to town he could’ve gone the Ochocinco route and tried to live with a fan to get acclimated. Fortunately for him there was no need for that or to go out looking for apartments. Teammate, and fellow UConn Husky, Donald Brown was willing to help.
“I’ve been living at his house for four months, rent free,” Orlovsky said, offering a sheepish grin. “He told me the hip check was the least I could do.”
So this means we can no longer call Orlovsky a freeloader right?
It didn’t look as nice as this Ben Roethlisberger block against the Chiefs but hey it got the job done and that’s what matters. I wonder if Orlovsky followed Brown around the house for the rest of the evening chirping in his ear saying, “You know you wouldn’t have scored without my block right?”. Probably not, but it would be pretty funny if he did. Quarterbacks don’t get the opportunity to pave the way for 80-yard TD runs very often so you have to take full advantage of it when it happens. I would have.
