Colts @ Texans Sunday Night Football Game Thread

1,303 posts in this topic

Hi, Colts fans!   :)  Our Indianapolis Colts are in the international spotlight as they are at Southeast Texas to play the defending 2015 AFC South Champions, and currently the AFC South leading Houston Texans,  for the first time in the 2016 NFL regular season, and also in the 29th all-time meeting between the teams.  A win by the Colts tonight would even their record at 3-3 after six games.

 

Colts are appearing in their 24th regular season appearance on Sunday Night Football entering tonight with their 14 wins and 9 losses after 23 games, while the Texans are appearing in their fifth appearance on SNF, entering with a 1-4 record.

 

Indianapolis has still by far the most dominence in a series rivalry over one opponent with the Houston Texans, since the Colts and the Texans began their divisonal rivalry in the AFC South, since the NFL divisonal relignment began in 2002.   Colts defeated the Texans in the first 15 out of 16 games through 2010.  However, the Texans won 4 out of the next 10 regular season games since.

 

Texans  defeated our Colts 16-10 in both teams last meeting played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building)  back on December 20, 2015.  Indianapolis scored the first 10 points of the game with an 11-yard pass from Matt Hasselbeck to Donte Moncrief,  followed by Adam Vinatieri's  29-yard field goal. However, an 8-yard TD pass from Brandon Weeden to Jaelin Strong, along wth three field goals by Nick Novak from 22. 46, and 32 yards, gave Houston, the 16-10 victory over the Colts.  The Texans win was their first ever regular season win in 13 seasons in Indianapolis, on their way to win their  second AFC South Title.

 

Al Michaels and  and former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Cris Collinsworth are annoouncing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Michele Tafoya, for NBC's Sunday Night Football seen internationally on the NBC Network, including WTHR NBC Channel 13, and in your mobile devices and laptop through the links below this thread, beginning with the Football Night In America Pre Game Show at 7:30PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

Bob Lamey and Jim Sorgi are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor, simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, WLHK The Hank Country 98.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

 

Kevin Kugler and former Green Bay Packer's wide receiver and Pro Football Hall Of Famer James Lofton, are also announcing live on national syndication on the Westwood One Radio Network, including locally in Indianapolis on WIBC  93.1FM and 107.5FM.

 

NRG (New Reliant Group - 'Energy') Stadium's roof should be open for the 8:30PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because outside the local game forecast in Downtown Houston is a mix of clear and mostly cloudy skies at 82 degrees, feels like 86 degrees, along with 5% humidity, 70% precipitation, and southeastern winds at 10 miles per hour.

 

Visiting Colts are wearing their white helmets, jerseys, and pants with blue trim, while the host Texans wear  their navy blue helmets an jerseys with red and white trim, and white pants.

 

All NFL teams, including both the Colts and Texans, may voluntarily continue to wear authentic pink colored NFL apparel, to continue supporting the NFL's  'A Crucial Campaign' of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Texans as both teams play tonight on NBC's SNF.  Win your third game to even your record at 3-3, Stay Colts Strong, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!  :)  :coltslogo:    :1colts:   :colts:   :coltslogo:

IIRC, the last time the colts won on SNF was 2013 vs Denver (or at least in 2013). So they are definitely due a win. :coltslogo:

If I understand correctly, 70% is chance of precipitation.  It might not rain, but on 10 days with identical circumstances, it will rain on 7 of them.  Humidity is a measure of moisture in the air.  I'm no weather expert, but the two can coexist with one being high and the other being low

    • Encouraged by the weight loss to Goode, Banner, and Stewart.   Surprised by the gain to Morrison and Walker...though both are only 22 and 21 respectively and have yet to enter their primes so it could just be them filling out.    
    • To channel my inner Herm...   "You play to win the game!"
    • it's kind of a win win though if we do have a bad season I won't be too upset and if we have a great season then that's awesome. unless we keep our coach and get like a late 20s pick cuz I mean we'd still get value but not as much maybe as a top 10 pick obviously. it's not as simple as just want a good season not this year. even though I always want the Colts to kick butt
    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.
