Frank Gore gets it done

Frank Gore: He did what he could with the chances he was afforded. With 78 yards on 13 carries, Gore finished the game with a 6-yard per-carry average. That's a winning brand of football right there. Gore gives the Colts a rushing threat they've not had at any point in the Chuck Pagano/Andrew Luck era. Gore's ability to make running lanes where none really exist is a testament to his craftiness as a runner, allowing the Colts to salvage bad plays that might otherwise result in losses. While it didn't pay off Sunday, Gore is giving this offense a dimension it has sorely lacked. About the only criticism is the fact that Gore could have have been given more chances against a Patriots run defense that ranks 22nd in the NFL. Gore is a weapon the Colts have to find ways to fully utilize.
