Carson Wentz, Colts get meme treatment after choking away playoff spot

Colts mocked with memes

The Indianapolis Colts laid a giant egg on Sunday with a chance to reach the playoffs, and the social media trolls couldn’t jump on them fast enough.

The Colts controlled their own destiny heading into Week 18. All they had to do was beat the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars, and they could not get it done despite being more than a two-touchdown favorite. The Jags controlled the game from the start thanks in part to Carson Wentz playing one of his worst games of the season. Jacksonville cruised to a comfortable 26-11 win, eliminating the Colts from the postseason.

Wentz finished 17/29 with 185 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He also lost a fumble when Indy was trailing 13-3 early in the second half. The performance by Wentz and the Colts led to some of the most ruthless memes we have ever seen.

There were a lot more, but those were some of the best.

Wentz has a reputation for playing poorly in big games. He certainly did nothing to change that perception over the final two weeks of Indy’s season. He also played poorly in last week’s upset loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, completing just 16 of 27 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown.

It will be a long time before the Colts and their fans get over the way the team melted down over the final two weeks of the season.
