He called the Indianapolis Colts ‘underdogs against Dallas Cowboys’ which led to various fans commenting about it.

A Twitter user wrote,” Can someone please tell Cris Collinsworth to shut up about this underdog Colts shit.”

Another one Tweeted, ” Cris Collinsworth just talked for like 45 seconds about why JT has struggled this year and didn’t even mention the offensive line.”

This was in relation to Fantasy Football’s number-1 selection, Jonathan Taylor’s poor play so far this season. Taylor was expected to shine in a new offensive system headed by recently signed QB Matt Ryan. Taylor has been mediocre running back after playing 12 games. He is ninth in carries with 171, and 10th in total rushing yards with 779.

A third Twitter user said,” Cris Collinsworth: “The OL has looked much better since Jeff Saturday has been the coach, let’s see what the Colts can do!” “Matt Ryan then immediately gets sacked on third down.”
