It's a combination of things.
Keenum did go to Graham for 20, Hopkins for 31, and he just missed Possey long on the right side line in the end zone.
The Colts shut down the Play Action on a few occasions, with the containment stayed closely on Keenum.
On other occasions, through the All-22 view, I can see that either the Colts played deep, or they double-teamed the deep guy(s), or they had the deep receiver(s) well-covered.
Yet on other occasions, the pass rush came, so Keenum didn't have time to wait for the long ball to develop.
