Colts @ Raiders Game Day Thread

683 posts in this topic

Hi, Colts fans!  :) Our 7-7 Indianapolis Colts are still in the hunt for at least an AFC Wild Card Playoff Spot,  as they are in Oakland, California, to play the 11-3 and AFC West Division leading Oakland Raiders, in the Colts first visit to Oakland in nearly six years.  

 

Interesting game in a showcase of young NFL quarterbacks attempting to thwart their opposing teams defenses, featuring the Colts own Andrew Luck playing opposite the Raider's Andrew Carr.

 

Indianapolis have an opportunity on Saturday afternoon to even the all-time series with Oakland with beach team at eight games apiece, in today's 16th meeting.  Peyton Manning threw the game-clincher with his 7-yard touchdown pass to WR Pierre Garcon, with 7:38 remaining in the fourth quarter, to help the Colts defeat the Raiders 31-19, back on December 26, 2010.

 

Colts have not lost a regular season road game at Oakland in more than 21 years.  Raiders last home over the Colts was a 30-17 at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum back on October 22, 1995. Peyton Manning was still a QB at the University Of Tennessee in Knoxville that year.

 

Raiders still may clinch the AFC West division title on whoever wins the Houston, Kansas City, and/or Pittsburgh win their games this weekend, and at the same time eliminate the Colts this weekend from playoff contention.

 

Jim Nantz and former New York Giants and Moorehead State QB Phil Simms, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Tracy Wolfson, are announcing the live TV game commentary for The NFL On CBS's primary late doubleheader game, seen live on HD in most of the USA, including locally in Indianapolis on WTTV CBS Channel 4.

 

Sunny skies at  51 degrees, feels like 47 degrees is the game forecast inside the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, for the 4:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0% precipitation, 58% humidity, and  northwest winds at 13 miles per hour.

 

My Christmas wish is for the Colts to stay alive for another week, and with help and luck ( the definition of good fortune, not Andrew Luck), Indianapolis survives these last to weeks and through chance earn a playoff spot.

 

NO injuries. let's see our Colts go for their eight win in 2016, defeat the Raider in their Black Hole,  and GO COLTS!!!!!     :):coltslogo:   :1colts:    :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltslogo:  :rock:

Mariota appears done for the year with that ankle injury, currently down 15 to the Jaguars with only 10 minutes to go.

We definitely have to win a shootout. We won't get pressure on those monsters they have blocking for Carr.

So did we game plan for this game like the Jets and Vikings or was this a Texans game plan week?

Morrison has decent north to south speed but his knee injury has reduced his lateral quickness.  That was a great tackle for loss on 2nd and 1 that stalled the drive.  He also had a big hit on the RB on that 9 yard run the play before.
