Colts @ Titans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :)    Our 2-4  Indianapolis Colts  play their second consecutive AFC South divisonal opponent on the road, as they are in Nashville to play the 3-3  and improved Tennessee Titans, in both teams 44th all-time  meeting, including an AFC Divisonal Playoff Game,and their 15th regular season road visit and game in Nashville.

 

Colts will try to maintain a lead in this game as they were on the verge of winning last week at Houston on Sunday Night Football. Colts were leading 23-9  with five minuites  left in the fourth quarter.  But Texans QB Brock Osweiler  threw two touchdown passes to force overtime.  

 

After the Colts were forced to punt, Osweiler threw a 36-yard TD pass to Jaelen Strong, putting the Texans to the 12-yard line, then Nick Novak kicked the game winning 36-yard field goal in overtime.

 

Colts have been dominant in the AFC South, winning two division titles in 2013 and 2014, and winning 16-straight games over AFC South opponents, but the Colts have lost 4 out of five games since 2015.

 

Indianapolis though has an advantage  in  Sunday's afternoon's game over Tennessee. Colts are on a current, nine-game, five year, regular season winning streak over the Titans, and have not lost  game to the Titans, since their 27-10 loss at then named LP Field back on October 30, 2011.  and outscored the Titans in the previous nine meetings 258 points to 174 points.  Indianapolis swept the season series in 2015, including the season finale, where Jerrell Freeman returned and interception, and Adam Vinatieri kicked a 35-yard field goal in the second half, to win the season finale 30-24 at LOS, back on January 3, 2016.

 

Colts also leads the series, including a 1999 AFC Divisional Playoff Game, with 29 wins and 14 losses.

 

Clear and sunny skies at 71 degrees is the game forecast inside Nissan Stadium in Downtown Nashville, for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff.

 

NO injuries,  win your third game of the season and stay Colts Strong, and and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo:  :1colts::colts::coltslogo:

For anybody that might have missed it...here are the highlights of Pagano's pre-game comments! 

 

"Well, without a doubt we will have to keep chopping a lot of wood today! Guys will need to execute...#12 will be ready, we've watched lots of film, the effort will be there!"

 

Go Colts!

I have a bad feeling about today's game. I hope I'm wrong but I feel today will be a new low in the Pagano era. I could see the Titans easily rushing for 300 yards today and winning big.

Temporary setback from last Sunday!   I figure the Colts, Coach Pagano and his coaching staff will grow from it. I have to figure they saw the game film in their meetings during practice on how adjusting  keep their leads, especially late in the game.

Just checked the distribution map. I once again don't get to watch the game. God I HATE living so close to Cincinnati.

I think we win this game. The Colts usually win the ones where most outside the fanbase think we have no chance. Facing a bad matchup, bunch of injuries, backs against the walls more than ever.

I think we pull out a really ugly win. I just hope Casey doesn't decimate Luck like he did in '15.

It's pretty much a given that the home team scores on their opening drive these days right right right???

    • Funny how much parity there is in the league especially for this season. Green Bay's season is effectively over, (much like ours if Luck don't come back soon), but when Aaron was healthy, I couldn't legitimately picture anyone in the NFC marching into Lambeau and beating Rodgers in January. 
    • Excellent theory except Colin should have also added that Pagano and coaching staff will also be turned over for Ballard's own pick of head coach and coaching staff. NFL.com already believes Pagano is a lame duck and no Andrew Luck to bail him out this year. Looking forward to a fresh start all around next year.
    • I agree that they  planned on Luck sitting the entire year but i'm not sure about the JB part.  I don't even think they considered that until it became obvious that Tolzein was absolute trash. But Luck sitting out was always the plan in my opinion and Irsay simply lied and dangled that carrot that he would return  in front of the fan base to get them to renew season tickets and keep attending games and buying concessions. Every thing that has happened has just been a piece of the plan, from his removal from pup, to his "practice" sessions of every other day, to now his setback. And as i said the other day and as Colin also said, give it a couple weeks and he will be officially done for the year.  Was listening to Dakich on 1070 the other day and he said he was told from someone who is as close as it gets to Luck besides his own family, and he was told Luck aint playing and this was all done for ticket sales.  Apparently Dakich brought this up weeks ago as well before the "setback" even happened. 
    • Here's the problem with Colin's theory....   If you want to trade Brissett -- fine.   But you DON'T want to trade him in the 2018 draft.     It's the best and deepest draft for QB's in a long, long time.    That drives Brissett's value DOWN.   If you're going to trade Brissett it's much better to do it for the 2019 draft which won't be as talented and that will make Brissett's value go UP.   Simple law of supply and demand.   But in broad general terms, I think there's some logic to Colin's theory.   I just don't think this is as cut and dry as he makes it out to be.    This didn't all get hatched back in January when Ballard was hired.    This has played out over the course of the entire year.    Lots and lots of moving parts that have happened over the last nine months and didn't all happen back when Ballard was hired.   Interesting,  but somewhat over thought.
