Colts collapse in loss to Ravens: Here’s how Twitter reacted

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.

How Twitter responded to the terrible loss of national television:

Carson Wentz is the 4th player in Colts history to throw for 400 passing yards in a game, joining Peyton Manning, Andrew Luck and Johnny Unitas.

Colts need to begin thinking about the future now. With the season spiraling, Wentz’s fate will be a major decision. Although he’s been a good player, you cannot lose a first round non-playoff pick. It is unacceptable to lose the

Lamar Jackson threw for a Ravens record 442 pass yards Monday night against the Colts.

Hope someone trades the Colts six offensive tackles, and four cornerbacks, for Marlon Mack.

Idk what to even say about this loss, this team and what the rest of the season holds… @Colts @JimIrsay please turn this around…

Here’s the reality: This #Colts team sucks. They don’t have the ability to win the games they need. They must bench Carson Wentz, and save their first round pick. Without a true solution at quarterback, they won’t be moving forward anytime soon.

#Colts deserved that loss. Lamar Jackson was not put under pressure by the defense. He was free all day to make plays. Frank Reich was too conservative with the hurt kicker. All three phases of the game were inexcusable during the fourth quarter.

Colts won.

Ravens won.

Hope the #Bengals were watching.
