What's your favorite Colts game of all time?

Sunday's win over Detroit was one of the best regular season wins in a long time but I vote for the 1995 AFC Championship Game vs. the Steelers. Although it resulted in a loss it was the most exciting and hard fought game I've seen, If you haven't seen it I highly recommend obtaining a copy of it.

Live, would be my 1st live Colts game. '76 Colt's at Miami, MNF, Mike barnes tips the Phins xtra point, Colts win 17- 16. (freezing cold for being in Miami).Walked with my brother from the Orange Bowl to N Miami Beach to get home because the bus's didn't run that late.

Tv Game, the '07 AFCCG. What a rush lol

Of course, the AFC Championship comeback over the Pats stands out, but for me, these games equal, or even surpass that moment.

Live, the 1995 AFC Championship game in Pittsburgh...Everyone in the stadium got quiet, (except me and a few other Colt fans), as we all thought the Colts had pulled off yet another miracle comeback...My heart sank as they showed the replay of the ball rolling up basically the entire body of Aaron Bailey, then slowly hitting the ground..Even Pittsburgh fans were saying that was the greatest game they had ever seen, and were very gracious to myself after the game..

On TV..The greatest comeback in history...The Tampa Bay game, where the Colts were so far down, and came back to win in OT...Brad Pyatt (few remember him) almost running one back...Peyton tearing apart the D with precision passes...and Vanderjagt almost blowing it at the end...That game had everything...

The Pittsburgh game had it all. Coryatts dropped pick would have sealed it. Lamont jordan getting stuffed on 3rd and 1, Odonnel almost sacked on 4th and ten. So many things would have ended that game.

The Tampa game was great too. Vandershank getting an extra chance on the game winner thanks to a launching penalty was sweet. That was a heart attack game last 4 minutes.

To date would have to be the road win against the Chiefs in the 95 run with Harbaugh. Our run game was superb that day.

For me the answer is the 06 AFC Championship game.

But I too think about that 95 AFC Championship game a lot. That year was not totally unlike this season. In a broader way, with PM coming in 98, that to me was the rebirth after many dark years.

Another loss which sticks out for me is the 03 Redskins in DC (Maryland literally...) game simply because it was the one and only time I saw PM, Edge, and Harrison play in person.

The '05 AFC Championship was brutal too. Harper snatches victory and then gets tackled by the QB in the open field thanks to his leg that was stabbed by his girlfriend the night before.

Brook is all over it....One of the 4 or 5 best football games Ive ever seen/..

that was probably the most gratifying win for sure. The Super Bowl was anti-climatic.

down 21-3 after a pick 6 was total agony. That 9 minute field goal drive to close out the half really gassed the Pats and set up that amazing comeback.

1995 AFC Championship game Pittsburgh vs Indy where Aaron Bailey dropped the hail mary by Jim Harbaugh, all Bailey had to do is wrap his arms around the ball by it squirted out of his lap and hit the turf followed by our Super Bowl win of course

It's been hard for me to watch that game again lol. Wasn't it Stewart who stepped out of the endzone came back in to catch the Td Pass? Harbaugh throwing the hail mary with a dislocated finger....

yep it was if memory serves (kind of sketchy, that was the year I first started watching football I had just turned 13), it was all Pacers before that.....Ahhhhh the Miller vs Starks and rest of the Knicks, Has not been a real rivalry since then, Pacers and Knicks despised each other back then with a passion

06 AFC Championship game

this

Over 20 years of pain washed away in a matter of 1 half of football. To be 100% honest, at the time I didn't care in the least if we won the SB or not. We made it..........was all I could feel.

My most painful memory (memories) is a tie between the 05 Pitt game and the 1995 AFCCG @ Pitt. I was young then, like 23, and when the announcer yelled "HE CAUGHT IT" I leaped from the couch in pure bliss and within a few seconds had crumbled to the floor in anguish.

Good Call! I forgot about that Monday Night comeback against the Bucks.

The other game I would add is the game in 2009 against the Pats when Belichick goes for it on 4th and 1, we stop them and then Peyton to Reggie for the game winner!

A couple off the wall games for me. The 2003 Home Opener against the Titans. Tennessee had been the Colts nemesis but they rolled the Titans that game. First time I noticed the crowd really having an impact and set the stage for a great run of Colts football.

Same 2003 season in the playoffs against the Broncos. Just a couple weeks after getting drilled by Denver the Colts come back to roll them. Manning was brilliant and the long pass to Stokely basically ended the game in the first half.

'71 Super Bowl, really badly played game but rookie kicker wins the game. The kicker was terrible that year and the COLTS thought that he would miss it for sure. Almost made up for the '69 loss to the jets.

Favorite was the Super Bowl win over Chicago!!!

Also have to consider the 06 Championship, the Monday Night comeback over Tampa Bay.

Favorite live game was 9-19-2010 Sunday Night win over the NY Giants. It was the Manning Bowl at LOS, and I was there with my new bride, who is a Giants fan!! We were married the day before, and this was our brief honeymoon trip.

I'm not sure I could name just one, as all mentioned above are favorites.

However, aside from those, I really enjoyed the all Field Goal win in Baltimore in the SB run.

Was that Bethea who picked the ball at the goal line while getting hammered by a team mate, and held on?

the kicker actually warned the team ahead of times he wasnt doing well in practice and field was mudd, Obrien I think was his name & stated to coaches before the game please dont let it come down to to counting on me

I have the ticket stub slabbed & gradded

06 AFC Championship game, hands down. Marlin's pick will forever go down as the most emotional moment I've ever felt while watching a football game. I'll never feel that kind of emotion again.

    • Im not sure what happened but everyone has a different gamepass except the US now. NFL decided to sell all the international licenses or something I guess. We got switched to the DAZN app here in Canada, and I know my buddy in Germany has it too (hence my asking if you guys got switched to it as well). Its like a Netflix subscription but for live streaming sports. Seems like a great idea but its been brutal so far. Even when it works the audio has been a good 5 seconds off of the video. Plus has the same issues crashing that you mentioned with your GamepassEU, as well as the lack of real support. Worst part is that we cant even get NFL Sunday Ticket or the NFL Network through cable anymore either, so we are stuck with this app or semi-illegal streams. Sucks to hear that other platforms arent doing well either (especially one with the actual Gamepass name attached to it).  Hopefully they all get it figured out, cuz its looking to be a rough time for everyone involved if this keeps up. 
    • Can I dare to dream that Natson could be resigned?  Still don't think the depth at WR is enough with Rogers' fragility and the return game could do with an injection.   Has he been picked up?
    •   Last year I think everyone in the world just had access to the same Gamepass, whereas this year they have split it so that we have "GamePassEU" which is separate to the other Gamepass platforms, and it has been an absolute nightmare.    Almost all the regular kick off games on Sunday had major issues in the first half, I must have only seen about 10 minutes of action as kept having to restart the app.   I didn't have Gamepass last year but a lot of people saying that the app is actually a lot worse with less content and features than previously (we only got coaches film available last week).  The worst part is that you cant actually speak to a human about the issues, need to go over twitter or a contact us on their site which doesn't get answered.   We don't have DAZN in the UK I think, but others I Europe do.   To be fair to them, the game last week worked perfectly well for me (wish it was the other way round!) and they have been trying to put more apps together (PS4, Samsung TV, LG TV, etc) which was a big negative of the old GP.  Hopefully issues are ironed out in time for Andrew's return when we start tearing up the league!
    •   In fairness to @masterlock I don't think he deserves the hounding for starting the thread.  He is not saying "let's start Brissett over Luck", just comparing them and the fact Brissett has looked every bit an NFL starter, which he has.   He even mentions it is only two games and that only time will tell.   Sometimes this board is a bit too quick to jump on people just trying to start a conversation.
    • What do you guys have over there? Did you guys get stuck with that DAZN app too? Its been terrible so far.
