Colts pass game all about Wayne

While the Colts may have five receivers with 20 catches or more so far this season, it is clear who the passing game passes through for Indianapolis.

Reggie Wayne, the 12-year veteran, who now lines up in the slot primarily, is the top read for Andrew Luck and the two have established an impressive chemistry in their first year together.

“It all revolves around 87,” said Bills head coach Chan Gailey of Indy’s passing game. “He’s the guy that opens up everybody else. Luck has done a great job, but they’re trying to get the ball out there to one guy during the course of the ball game and that opens up other things.”

Wayne has more receptions (76) than the second and third leading receivers on the team (Donnie Avery – 41, Dwayne Allen 31). He’s also second in the league in receiving yards per game (100.3) behind only Detroit’s Calvin Johnson.
