Can anyone help me out with the good points and bad points of the game? UK fans were blacked out and won't be able to watch the game for 6 days!

Thank you.

Good points: Q1 Luck made a couple of nice and fast drive with a rushed (Ballard) and a passed TD (Hilton).

Bad points: our receivers were covered too well, and Luck didn't get a decent protection. He was constantly under pressure, he made some accurate throws with a Pats LB hanging on his back. He also made some bad throws...2 of them were pick6...I think our blocking was terrible, CB with picked passes could march through our O-line to the endzone. Hilton and Ballard dropped some passes, again.

D was porous. They couldn't rush Brady at all, made only 1 3rd and out, and there was also a good stop, that forced NE to field goal.

In the Q4 Colts were falling apart, and couldn't show up significant resistance.

In a summary: we've started strong, but presented to NE at least 21 points, and that killed us. A pick6 and punt-return TD within a minute right at the start of Q2 were too much and the team collapsed.

Luck had 4 turnovers, 3 interceptions, one fumble, 2 of his 3 interceptions were ran back for touchdowns, we could run the ball today, we ran it for 119 yards we just didnt do it enough, Hilton had two touchdown catches and 100 yards on the day, Darius Butler forced a fumble, unfortunately other then that our secondary was not existant

Same problem, oh well, so far the two blackouts have been blowouts on the road, there's a trend developing here!

    • Okay, you're right. I incorrectly flipped it. I will own that. It was still a boring game IMO probably because I knew the fins were gonna suck & they lived up to my lowered expectations.    I just don't see the need for TNF except for the owners to rake in more dough. If INDY's on will I watch it? Absolutely. I accept TNF is here to stay, but I hate it because it accelerates injury risk if INDY just played Sunday & now must get ready for a short week to hit another player a few days later.

    • I appreciate NFLfan & Gramz's well written posts on paying proper respect when the Natl. Anthem is bing sung. All I ask is that fans stand & listen in silence when the Star Spangled Banner is being performed. Taking off a hat & placing your hand on your heart is not mandatory to me. Just stand & give the song it's proper reverence IMO.    I guess I cut fans slack on other gestures [hat & heart] because to me all that matters is giving our veterans & active service men & women as well as the fallen your respect & undivided attention. JMO.    I admire parents & relatives that instruct family members to remove their hats of course, the the heart gesture or placement itself isn't all that significant to me because when I grew up with the Pledge Of Allegiance in school as a little kid you get to a point where it feels like you are going thru the motions rather than a personal belief in what you are doing by virtue of repetition & routine.

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
