The Colts got burned using Pole Cat Sunday night against the Patriots.

The Miami Dolphins created a fad in the NFL in 2008 when they unleashed the "Wildcat" on the New England Patriots and actually won at Foxboro. The Indianapolis Colts tried their own trickery Sunday night against the Pats, but it didn't quite have the same success.


The formation the Colts used is a variation of "Pole Cat" or the "Swinging Gate." Above are clips of the play actually working.
