Indianapolis Colts' Estonian Defensive End Margus Hunt was key to Sunday's 37-5 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
The game saw the Colts' defence run rampant, intercepting Bills' passes three times, causing two fumbles and forcing them to punt four times throughout the game at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Colts also forced the Bills to turnover on downs in the fourth quarter, when the latter made a 3-yard completed pass when they needed 4 yards.
The Colts limited the Bills' offence to a single field goal, whilst their own offence racked up 37 points, though Buffalo's defence forced a Colts safety for a further two points.
Blocked pass could have been run in for TD
Margus Hunt proved a pivotal part of the Colts' defensive dominance, blocking a pass for an incompletion which, according to news portal Delfi, had he caught it, he could have run in for a defensive touchdown.
Hunt, 31, from Karksi-Nuia, Viljandi County in southern Estonia, started as a field athlete and excelled in the hammer throw; he enrolled at the Southern Methodist Univeristy (SMU) in Dallas, Texas, in 2007, ostensibly to train further in athletics, making the switch to gridiron when SMU cut its athletics program and getting a football scholarshp with the SMU Mustangs. Drafted by the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals in the second round in 2013, he was traded to the Colts in March 2017.
