This one is easy. the Colts dont win games by large margins...

..and the Colts dont dominate anyone on the road....I dont think we win by eight

But this game clinches the playoffs and KC has nothing to play for..and is shorthanded.

I like Indy to win a close one as they have all year

Technically, the world is supposed to end before the game. Its a low-risk bet

You think anyone is taking bets on the Myans being right, or wrong?  It's really genius when you think about it.

Whatif predicts Colts 16 - Chiefs 20.

 

Ouch.

 

On the nothing to play for thought I sometimes hear about (mainly other sites, but maybe here as well).  I think they do have something to play for.  

 

1. Their job next year.  All of the games and effort of every player is on tape for coaches/GM's to peruse.  Nobody wants to be filmed tanking it the last couple games.

2. Chance to keep someone else from going to the dance.  Misery loves company. The old 'If we can't go, I'll keep them from going too!"

3. The Let's have fun and be creative factor.  The we have nothing to lose, and maybe something to gain attitude. {see above}

 

Granted, the emotional lift won't be there, that sense of urgency, like it will be for our Colts.  But they won't just give it away.  We'll earn it, and deserve it. :)

This is a MUST Win Game. Either that, or we become Bengal Fans to beat Pit for us

If the Bengals, Lions, Jets, Panthers or Texans win this week, we're in, even if we lose. I think the Texans will beat the Vikings, and I bet the Panthers beat the Raiders. The rest of those are toss-ups.

Who knows? I haven't run the scenarios myself, but there's a bunch of different info out there. Either way, I'd rather we just took care of it ourselves.

This is just simply a game you have to win i you are a playoff team.  You can tell me how hungry KC is going to be, how good they are at the skill positions, or how hard of a place KC is to play and you will be right on every single one of those points.  However, they have not played well at ALL this season.  If you are going to the playoffs and need a win to get in this is not a game you lose.  That's not over looking KC either (not that it matters since I don't play for the team and I don't think anyone on the team is over looking them) it's just stating that if the Colts are playoff team and need a win to get in they have to be able to beat a team that has managed to just win twice to this point in the season.

Playoff teams beat KC by 7.

I hope we can.

.....WE think we need this game (we wont know until Pitt plays)

The sense of urgency is there..We can block their defensive front and Luck can make connections early

Then we'll be conservative and win with field goals.....26-20

I refuse to overlook the Chiefs after that 17 point lead we blew against them last season. Granted it was "last season", you never know.

Lets see, the Raiders one of the most pitifullest none no what to do on offense or defense of team in the league beats and shuts out the 

Chiefs then for me I don't see why the Colts should not beat them just like we did against  the Jags last game at least!!!! Lose to this

team and Colt ought to just forget about it. This game will really show where we truly are at, good are bad.

I think this is going to be a good game. Down to the wire. But, in this case, the Colts are the better team, so I expect them to win.

As long as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man doesn't get in the way I see a victory for the Colts.

Will Luck have a monster game this year? That's the question you're asking and the Chiefs are most likely his last chance to do so and I would say Luck is ready, he puts it all together and the Chiefs are punished (at least 5 Colt TDS).

The monster game is most likely to happen against a team that can put up points, thus forcing a shoot out. Who knows... It could happen, but KC just doesn't have any weapons that scare anyone right now. I expect a solid first half from the Colts, a decent lead, and an uber-conservative, low scoring second half.

Um... Luck has had some monster games. Not throwing 7 TD's a game doesn't mean it wasn't a monster. Week 9 against Miami. 30/48, 433 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT, 9.0 YPA.

    • I have to agree with this sentiment.    I was worried they/he rushed back from injury too soon. I hope it's not career ending. Even though he was a division rival, I've always liked how he carried himself on and off the field. I wish him the best.
    • But he didn't, despite the narrative.    Grigson drafted 4 receivers in 4 years: Hilton (3rd), Brazill (6th), Moncrief (3rd), Dorsett (1st).    In the same time period, he drafted 6 OL: Anderson (7th), Thornton (3rd), Holmes (4th), Mewhort (2nd), John (7th), Good (7th).   Then this year, he drafted 4 more OL, including Kelly in the 1st. In five years, that's 4 receivers, 10 OL. Even "early" picks -- which to me is first and second rounders -- is 2 OL, 1 WR. Add in the third round, and it's still 3 OL and 3 WRs.   Grigson largely failed to fix the OL for four years, no question. But it's not because he didn't try, and it's definitely not because he spent too many picks on receivers. 
    • I worry about many things, but Dorsett isn't one of them.
    • Wouldn't a PS player have to remain on the team for 3 weeks? So when Jones came back next week someone else would have to be cut
    • In theory, yes, the Colts at their best could probably beat any team in the league. The offense would have to avoid mistakes, the defense would have to tackle well, and they'd probably still need some help from the other team in the form of missed opportunities (Rivers missed 3-4 TD throws on Sunday). They could get hot, stay healthy, and knock some teams off. It would be awesome if they were humming in December and January and made it to the Super Bowl, but don't hold your breath.    In practice, this year's Colts are a second tier team, at best. The OL is a work in progress (positive things are on the way, I believe, but the protection is still leaky and the run blocking is even further off), the QB and receivers aren't consistently on the same page. The defense can't cover the middle and can't consistently rush the passer. The coaching staff hasn't proven that they have the ability scheme and strategically minimize these weaknesses AND maximize the obvious strengths. In fact, in the biggest test of this ability -- late in the Denver game -- the coaching staff blew it.   If the Colts were able to play to their full potential every single week, and stay healthy, and if the coaching staff pushed the right buttons every game and in every situation, you might have a 13-3 team with a first round bye. But even then, you're probably looking at the 2010/2012 Falcons; that team even won a playoff game, but wasn't a great team, and quickly regressed (4-12 in 2013, a year after going to the NFCCG). This team appears more likely to play below expectations than to exceed expectations, sadly. Just not enough playmakers, especially on defense.   The hope is that the last two draft classes keep going in the right direction, and you get another two draft classes that pan out. Doesn't mean the Colts aren't trying to contend in the meantime, but it's going to be a couple years before the Colts will be considered one of the top teams in the league. And that's assuming things go well and the staff does the right things over the next two offseasons, which isn't a given.
