If the Colts are 9-6 going into game 16 vs the Texans with a playoff berth on the line, I think our home game will become a primetime game on SNF.

What do you all think??? SNF for week 17 is still to be determined.

I hope not. I have tickets for that game and already made reservations at St. Elmo. So it would really be inconsiderate of the league to disturb my plans.

There's a good chance it could happen. Hopefully for the Colts that they're locked in at that time as it would take a miracle for the Colts to beat the Texans. Not impossible but not probable

The Colts may well be 9-6 and battling for a playoff spot, but the Texans may well have nothing to play for. I can't see them shifting a game like that into Sunday night if there is another game that is important to both teams.

As I said in my flex thread, That week will come down to the game with the most to play for. Atlanta might be playing for 16-0, two teams might be facing off for a division title. , someone might be trying to secure a playoff spot.

It is possible.

Depends on if they have a playoff spot wrapped up by then is the game for the division title and are there other teams fighting to make the playoffs that night as well. Say you get a game like they have had the past couple of years that is more or less winner takes all they would rather have that than say a Colts team that needs to win to get in if they know odds are the Texans are going to lay down for example. It all depends on the lay of the land that weekend. With that said if the Colts have a shot at the playoffs going into that game I would say yes there is a pretty good chance that game could be flexed.
Thank You Peyton! I look forward to the day you come home and we get to do this good bye thing right!

It also will depend on what Houston may be playing for. They may have the division locked up by then
but you have to concider the fact that they may be playing for a better seeding. Cant just assume that
We will be facing their second stringers

I love the optimism! IMHO, I think we need to get a lot healthier and a lot more disciplined in order to achieve that. I just hope we get in to the playoffs.

Oh, I thought this was going to be a 'sit the starters' thread.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely *ic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I think 9-6 will be enough for a spot, but I can see the logic here.

Hopefully the colts win at least 11 games is what I'm going for. They do that don't have to worry about it then.

I'm thinking 9-7 makes the wildcard in the AFC this year.

I think if were 9-6 going into last game vs Houston that game won't have any meaning for Colts or Texans.
I think 9 wins gets you in & Colts would have secured a playoff spot and Houston will have everything wrapped up.

The Texans may have to win for the best overall record vs. NE

I hear you. The Colts are still in control of their own destiny. What if the Colts win the next 7, including beating NE once and the Texans twice?

That would secure the first round bye and possibly home field advantage through the playoffs.

Not likely, I know, but I am already impressed that they are 6-3.

While I agree BUF is a must win, I think how the Colts play against NE will be far more telling about how far this team has come and what it's chances are come playoff time. To me the Pats game may be the single most important game on their schedule.

I am forever grateful for all the great players I've been fortunate enough to watch play the game with horseshoes on their helmets,

and I'm eagerly anticipating the opportunity to see which new Colts become the stars and fan favorites of tomorrow.

I have tickets for that game (my bday) on the 50 yard line row 7 behind the Indy bench.....it better stay right where it is!

Plus Chuck "Norris" Pagano is shooting for his return that day and I hope to see him.

Flew in two years ago. Best Filet Mignon I have had. My wife had the chicken, dry and not so good.

"Anyone a die harder fan? I will be there believing to the end. Who is with me?" Thread started by Steveeoaktree33 at 2:49 PM of the day the Colts executed the second largest comeback in NFL playoff history. Very few concurred.

Yeah, you should have seen the look on my daughter's face after the shrimp cocktail dipped in the horseradish. Food tasted great after watching the first Colts win of the season last year.

    I was listening to CBS sideline Thursday Night Football reporter Tracy Wolfson talk about Saints WR Kenny Stills having to "tape up his groin" in the 2nd half & that phrase made me cringe because ankles I get, but tape & a sensitive region of the body doesn't sound all that wonderful to me. Enough said.

    Preparing for my second Indy trip. A stopover but a long trip none the less. I want a Colts victory but wonder what the Indy weather surprise me. Last year on my first trip to the LOS it was cold, my first trip this year it rained!
