Battle for the Division Title?

25 posts in this topic

Should New England beat Houston on Monday Night Football. Next Sunday will be an epic battle for the Colts to stay alive in the race for the division title. Due to the Colts loss to the Jacksonville Jags earlier in the season, we'll have to beat Houston twice to take the head-to-head tie-breaker.

This assumes we can beat Kansas City.

Yeah. If we had any chance to beat Houston away then I'd say our chances are pretty good, but we need to beat them first lol.

Yes, and if we pull off the miracle and win the division, our reward in the first round might be... the Texans. :) 3 times in 4 weeks.

I really hate to think so far ahead. BUT... since I'm going to the last game of the season...

Is it possible that WE may be resting players in that game?

not a chance. if we want the division, we have to win out. we're barely getting wins WITH our starters.

Let's assume we're not in contention to win the division AND we have a WC spot secured. I won't be surprised to see Mr. Stanton in the second half of that game.

I think beating Houston twice was tough for us when we we were rolling with Mr. Manning, was it not?

I would be giddy if we beat them once.

The 'past is prologue'. We haven't fared well the last two visits to Reliant.

I like the fact that they're playing a Monday night game on the road against a very good opponent.

Its possible but unlikely. It would be amazing to pull out a miracle divisional title though.

There's still an outside chance the Colts COULD earn a 1st round Bye. But HIGHLY unlikely

If we win the division, we'll probably have a first round bye. Extremely unlikely, but stranger things have happened. I agree though, we could be resting a lot of guys in that last Houston game if our WC spot is clinched, which is likely, and our divisional hopes are dashed....very probable.

we would have to win out the ravens lose one broncos lose one and then we might have 1st round bye

and texans would have to lose to newengland or the vikings

Great Polian Quote. Here is my favorite...

"The quarterback wasn't the problem on Sunday. You don't know football well enough to know where to place the blame."

I was replying to post that stated if they win the Division, then the Colts might have to play the Taxans in the 1st round. My reply was a different possible playoff scenario should the Colts win the division. As far out there as it might be

The chances to win the division rest entirely on our shoulders. Win out, and it's ours. I think that's highly unlikely; I doubt we beat them in Houston next week. But, as the saying goes, that's why they play the games.

I'm pretty sure ole Bill didn't make up that 'prologue' quote... Either Bill...

Fear nobody.

What is it that Pagano said after the Dolphins game? "Remember where they had you before the season started. Every last one of them".

If we beat Houston next week (I don't expect it, but you never know), then I say that winning the division becomes a lot more possible (maybe even expected :dunno:).

As stated many times in this thread, we win out, we win the division, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say that we win the #1 seed too.

You know what? I may have taken your post the wrong way. Sorry for being defensive.

Thats not true, if the texans beat new england and the other game they play besides the Colts game, the Colts could win there last 3 games, and would still lose the division to the texans because they would be 13-3 to our 12-4.

We barely beat Detroit on the road and they were 4-7.

What makes you think we will beat the Texans in Reliant? That would be a miracle.

Now week 17 at home against the Texans and Pagano is coming back? I could see us taking that game.

If we (Texans) beat New England then beat Minnesota we go 13-3 and we could lose both Colts games and still win the division. If we lose to NE than we will be angry and destroy you at Reliant which would clinch us division.

Oh, you're right. I was already assuming that the Texans are going to lose tomorrow night.

    • I believe Thadius Young will make an impact also as well as a healthy Jefferson
    • Yeah, that is good to see that Josh finally saw the light & while I agree with Jvan that Gordon knew in all likelihood he was about to fail his next drug test, an addict has to hit rock bottom on their own timetable. The realization light doesn't happen during an NFL suspension window alone, but when the addict knows it's time to seek professional help.    I always wonder why franchises release statement of support & then cut their caboose. It's like a husband celebrating 10 yrs together with his wife on their anniversary by banging his secretary & then handing her divorce papers before desert arrives.   Surprise! We love you so much Josh & the maturity you are showing that we want absolutely nothing to do with your life anymore. Gee thanks. 
    • I don't get this thread... What's wrong with Allen? He had a drop?    He bails out the O-Line on a regular basis. He's a pretty reliable route runner and pass catcher. Doyle is good, but you need 2, really. 
    • You're a good guy CC1 & I love your sense of humor. That's why I love this forum so many amigos are just as sarcastic as I am & smart too that goes without saying. You always have a refreshing perspective on things.    I was watching a "Modern Family" re-run on TV yesterday where the dad was more proud of a fencing trophy than his son was. He wanted to quit & not fight a female in the Championship round. The father convinced him to compete anyway & just as the dad puts the trophy in his bedroom not his son's room he says with a beaming grin on his face "guilt is temporary, but hardware lasts forever." Ba! Ha! Ha!    Moms are always from the school of just do your best son I will love you no matter what vs dads who are like win it all or you are nothing to me & the honor of the family name.    It sounds harsh, but the episode was hysterical. God, I love brilliantly deployed sarcasm. It's the best.

    • 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.
