  1. Hi, Colts fans.  :default_20smile:  Our Indianapolis Colts  hopefully will reach the Super Bowl for the fourth time since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger,  and though our Colts did reach the NFL postseason playoffs this past 2018 NFL season, and went as far as the AFC Divisional Round Playoff Game, losing to the KC Chiefs,  Indianapolis has not reached the  Super Bowl since Super Bowl XLIV back in February 2010.

     

    Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots play for the Vince Lombardi Championship Trophy, with kickoff from Mercedes-Benz Stadium by 6:30 PM Eastern Standard Time.

     

    NO injuries, and GO L.A. Rams!   :default_20smile:

  2. Greetings, our Blue Horseshoe is 1-0 in the postseason, and are back for another NFL Postseason Game Day and afternoon  Colts fans! :)  Our  AFC #6 Playoff  Seed, and 11-6 Indianapolis Colts again lead off the NFL Postseason Weekend in consecutive Saturday afternoon, as they are in the Kansas City, Missouri, area to play the  AFC #1 Playoff Seed, 12-4,  and AFC West Division Champions Chiefs in the 2019 AFC Divisional Playoff Game.

     

    Veteran Colts WR T. Y. Hilton has, and continues to battle his ankle injury he has suffered in the past month since the 23-0 victory to the Dallas Cowboys, but could likely be game ready and was neither listed as questionable nor put on this weeks injury report despite participating in one team practice.  Marlon Mack also has to perform a steady ground game through the cold field at Arrowhead Stadium.  Mack just needed 4 yards in the season finale at Tennessee to reach !,000 yards, as Frank Gore accomplished in 2017, and Joseph Addai the last Colts running back to run the before Gore  back in 2007.

     

    However, WR Ryan Grant (toe) and DT/DE Tyquan Lewis (knee) are out because of their injuries,  Also  starter Safety/DB Malik Hooker (foot) and DT/DE Denico Autry have missed significant practice time this week, and will be a gametime decision by Colts Head Coach Frank Reich and his coaching staff and team medical staff if both players could be ready to play competitively.

     

    Our Colts along with the Chiefs  players, are expected to dress warmly as they compete on the Arrowhead Stadium playing field,   exposing to the outside  cold elements at Arrowhead Stadium during this afternoon's game.  

     

    Steady snow with cloudy skies and limited visibility at 31 degrees, feels like 23 degrees, is the local forecast inside Arrowhead Stadium, in the Harry S. Truman Sports complex at Independence, Missouri, east of Downtown Kansas City, for the 4:35 PM  Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 57% precipitation, 92% humidity, and north/northeast winds at 11 miles per hour.

     

    If our   Colts win at Kansas City this afternoon,  Indianapolis will  again travel on away on the road  next Sunday for the 2019 AFC Championship Game, and  face the winner of the L.A. Chargers @ Patriots, either at Carson, California, or at Foxborough, Massachusetts.

     

    Saturday afternoon's contest also feature NFL quarterbacks considered for postseason accolades.  Our Colts Andrew Luck is a serious candidate for NFL Comeback Player Of The Year. Luck first had to overcome both his in-season lacerated kidney and partially torn abdominal muscle injuries  he suffered during the 2015 NFL season that November.  Andrew also had postseason surgery to repair his right throwing shoulder after the 2016 NFL season, followed by being placed on injured reserve because of his slow healing and rehab on his shoulder during the 2017 NFL season.  

     

    This past 2018 Colts regular season, Luck threw 39 touchdown passes, completed 439 of his 630 passes attempted for 4,593 yards and a 67.3 completion percentage, and ranked #11 in the NFL with his 98.7 passing rating.

     

    Chiefs second-year player  Patrick Mahomes is also a  candidate for NFL Player Of The Year,  for both his production of throwing 50 touchdown passes, most by an NFL QB in the 2018 NFL season, and help lead the Chiefs to their third straight  AFC West Division title, and 11th overall for Kansas City.

     

    Kansas City statistically were #1 in the NFL in both Total Offense 425.6 Yards Per Game, and Points Per Game at 35.3.  However,  the Chiefs  Total Defense   and Passing Defense was  also ranked #31  out of 32 teams, above the Arizona Cardinals, each allowing 405.5 YPG and 273.4 YPG to opponents during the 2018 NFL regular season.

     

    Indianapolis is ranked #7 in the NFL in Total Offense at 386.2 YPG and #5 in scoring at 27.1 PPG, while the Colts are ranked #11 in Total Defense allowing their opponents 339.4 YPG, and #10 in points allowed at 21.5 PPG

     

    Indianapolis also is in their 29th playoff  and postseason appearance since the franchise  began and entered the NFL as the Baltimore Colts.

     

    Colts  also leads the all-time regular and postseason series entering today with their 16-9-0 record in today's 26th meeting, which includes 12 regular season wins and 4 postseason games.  Indianapolis has won all 4 postseason games over Kansas City,  10-7 in January 1996 and 38-31 in January 2004 in their AFC Divisional Round Playoff Games, both played in Kansas City.  and later defeated the Chiefs  by the scores of 23-8 on January 2007, and 45-44 on January 2014, both games played at the RCA Dome and the real Lucas Oil Stadium in the AFC Wild Card Games.

     

    Indianapolis also has a winning record in road games played at Arrowhead Stadium, with their 9-4-0 record entering today, including 8 regular season games, and 1 postseason game (2013 AFC Wild Card Game).

     

    In the recent postseason meeting between the Colts and the Chiefs in the 2004 AFC Wild Card Playoff Game,  the Chiefs held their biggest lead of the game at 38-10 early in the third quarter.  However, Indianapolis outscored Kansas City in the second half   35-6.  Andrew Luck threw the game winning touchdown, a 64-yard pass to T.Y. Hilton, followed by Adam Vinatieri's PAT with 4:21 remaining in the fourth quarter, to win 45-44 at LOS back on January 4, 2014.

     

    Kansas City defeated Indianapolis 30-14 in the last regular season meeting,  played at LOS back on October 30, 2016, with Andrew Luck completing 19 of his 35 passes for 210 yards, and 2 TD's for the Colts.

  3. Happy New Year, 2019, and the Blue Horseshoe is back in the NFL Playoffs Colts Fans!  Our  2018 and 10-6  Indianapolis Colts are back in the NFL Postseason for the first time in four years,  as they are back again in Southeast Texas, to play the 11-5, and 2018 AFC South Division Champions Houston Texans for third time in the 2018-19 NFL calendar season.

     

    This afternoon's Colts @ Texans game leads off the weekends 2019 NFL's Wild Card Round Weekend, followed by the Seahawks @ Cowboys, and on sunday the L.A. Chargers @ Ravens, and Eagles @ Bears Wild Card Round playoff Games.   Our Colts also  earned this year's playoff berth convincingly and on the road, by virtue of defeating the Tennessee Titans in Nashville by the score of 33-17 last Sunday Night.

     

    Colts are in their 28th playoff appearance this late Saturday afternoon since in their 65th year of existence. since the NFL awarded the franchise back in January 23, 1953. and  as the Baltimore Colts from 1953 through 1983, and the Indianapolis Colts from 1983 through today.

     

    Indianapolis is the third NFL team to reach the postseason after starting their first six games with a 1-5 record. Colts then proceeded to win 9 of their 10 remaining regular season games, the only loss and blemish a 6-0 road loss at the Jacksonville Jaguars back on December 2.

     

    I still think the Colts November schedule, with their Week 9 bye week, and three straight home games at the real LOS, was the turning point in their 2018 regular season.  First year Colts Head Coach Frank Reich, should earn serious consideration as the NFL's Coach Of the Year in leading the Colts turnaround this past regular season.

     

    2014 Indianapolis Colts were the last team to qualify for playoffs,  completing both  their third consecutive year with an 11-5 regular season record, and also 2014 was the last year the Colts earned the AFC South Divisional Championship.  

     

    2014 Colts proceeded to defeat the Bengals 26-10 in the AFC Wild Card Playoffs, and the Broncos 24-13 in the AFC Divisional Playoffs, before falling to the Patriots in the AFC New England,  both by the final 7-45 score, and the Colts the victim of the alleged 'deflategate'  by Tom Brady and eventual Super Bowl Champion Patriots.

     

    Both Indianapolis and Houston split wins, each winning road games by three points, in their home-and-home rivalry in the 2018 regular season  meetings. 

     

    Houston won in overtime when Ka'imi Fairburn kicked the game-winning 37 yard field goal with five minuites left in overtime to defeat the Indianapolis  37-34 at the real LOS back on September 30, 2018. 

     

    However, the Colts avenged their earlier loss later, when the Colts had the biggest lead of the match played at Houston,, leading 24-14, before the Colts kept their lead after a Texans Touchdown from DeShaun Watson to DeAndre Hopkins, and eventually won 24-21 in the rematch played at NRG Stadium in Houston back on December 9, 2018.

     

    Indianapolis has lead the regular season series prior to Saturday afternoon with their 26-8 record, but today's is both teams first postseason game, in today's 35th all-time meeting.

     

    Colts also have a winning road regular season record at Houston at 12-5.

     

    Joe Tessitore,, Jason Whitten  and Booger Mc Farland are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Lisa Salters, simulcast in throughout the USA and internationally on ESPN and the Watch ESPN app, and locally on WRTV ABC Channel 6 - The Indy Channel in Indianapolis, beginning with the pregame show on WRTV at 2:00 PM Eastern Time. and seen live on HD.

     

    Today's Colts @ Texans 2019 AFC Wild Card Round Game can also be seen and simulcasted live from your mobile device through your cellphone and provider on the NFL mobile app. and on the WRTV ABC Channel 6 website in your device on https://www.theindychannel.com/ .

     

    NRG (Energy) Stadium's roof may be open for the 4:35 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because sunny skies at 70  degrees is the local forecast, along with  0% precipitation, 37% humidity, and southern winds at 4 miles per hour.

     

    Head Linesman Bill Vinovich, in his 13th season as an NFL official, and 10th as a referee, leads his NFL officiating crew to supervise the game action on the NRG Stadium field, between the Colts and Texans. Vinovich is also in his 11th postseason assignment, including 3 Wild Card Playoffs, 4 Divisional Playoffs, 3 Conference Championships, and Super Bowl XLIX.

     

    NO injuries, try to advance intoto the AFC Divisional Playoffs next weekend by defeating the Texans  tonight, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!

  4. Colts are the third team to make the NFL Playoffs after  their 1-5 start, and they won 9  of their last 10 games.   Remarkable!

     

    Also credit  Frank Reich for keeping the season alive for Indianapolis.  Reich should be considered for NFL Coach Of The Year in his first year with the Colts.

     

    Colts finish 10-6 for their 2018 NFL Regular Season! Congratulations!!!  On to Houston, again! 

     

    Happy New Year, Colts fans!!!!  See you back here next weekend!

  5. Marlon Mack sealed this game, he had a wide open hole through the line of scrimmage and the Colts clinch this game with their 33-17 lead.

     

    Fortunate for the Colts, but the same time unfortunate for the Titans, since Marcus Mariota is sidelined tonight because of his injury.  Mariota would have given a better chance to compete and win for Tennessee had he been healthy.  Not to be tonight!

     

    GO COLTS!!!!!

  6. I hope and there should be a group of Colts fans in the front seats at Nissan Stadium, and probably would be panned by the NBC cameras if they are seen during the game.   If this game has to end and finish in a tie game, the Colts should go playoff postseason bound because of their earlier 38-10 this season over the Titans at the real LOS.  JMHO.

     

    GO COLTS!  FTW!!!!!   :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltslogo:   :rock:

  7. Hi Colts fans!   A playoff berth is on the line tonight, as our Indianapolis Colts are down south in Nashville to play the Tennessee Titans, with matching 9-6 records. in the 256th and final  game for both teams and the NFL's 2018  Regular Season, for NBC's primetime Sunday Night Football coverage.  Winner earns the postseason berth, loser is eliminated from the postseason.

     

    Colts own the tiebreaker at the moment, with their earlier 38-10 home rout of the Titans in the earlier meeting played at the real LOS back on November 18, evening their record to 5-5 at the time.

     

    I still think Indianapolis has the edge over Tennessee, because Andrew Luck has more game experience at QB than Blaine Gabbert. Colts defense has to contain Titans RB Derrick Henry, who scored 5 touchdowns in a home win over Jacksonville in a Thursday Night Football game.

     

    Houston Texans clinched the 2018 AFC South Division title earlier this afternoon by defeating the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars 20-3 at NRG Stadium.  Texans linebacker J.J. Watt also had a sack accomplishing 16 QB sacks in 16 games this season.

     

    Tonight's outcome in Nashville between the Colts and Texans is simply, winner earns a Wild Card Playoff berth,  loser is eliminated from contention.  Hopefully our Colts are the victors after tonight's game.

     

    Had  the Jacksonville Jaguars upset the Texans in their season finale at NRG Stadium earlier Sunday afternoon, this Colts Vs. Titans game would  have been  more intrigue.  Had the Texans lost in that scenario Still a win or lose and go home prime time game, and  instead of Wild Card Playoff berth if the Texans win, but  for the  AFC South Division Title. 

     

    A win tonight over the Titans by the Colts should be a fitting climax  and remarkable to their regular season,  after starting their first six games with a 1-5 record before their October 21 game.

     

    Since their October  21 home win over the Buffalo Bills, the Colts have one 9 of their last 8 games during the season, the only blemish the 6-0 road loss at Jacksonville back on December 2.   Also since October 21, the Tennessee has also won 6 of their last 9 games prior to tonight.

     

    Indianapolis leads the all-time regular season series, including 1 postseason game at 32-15, and also own an 11-5 record at Nissan Stadium.

     

    Al Michaels and former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Cris Collinsworth are announcing the live TV game commentary , along with sideline reporter and interviewer Michele Tafoya, for The NFL On NBC's Sunday Night Football coverage, seen throughout the USA and internationally, and locally on WTHR NBC Channel 13 in Indianapolis, live on HD.

     

    Tonight's NBC electronic network feed of tonight's Colts @ Titans game can be seen live on your computer, Mac, and iPad through your local cable provider.  Colts and NFL fans can also see tonight's game again through the NBC Network  for free , anywhere you are away from home, and travelling, through your cellphone on the NFL Mobile App.

     

    Partly cloudy skies at 53 degrees, is the local game forecast inside Nissan Stadium, for the 8:20 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along, with 0% precipitation, 67% humidity, and east/southeast winds at 3 miles per hour. However, showers is forecast to come  in Downtown Nashville by 11:00 PM Eastern Time, around the second half/fourth quarter.

     

    Head Linesman Walt Anderson leads his NFL officiating crew to supervise the game action on the Nissan Stadium field, between the Colts And Titans.

     

    I also wish all Colts fans, especially Nadine, my fellow administrators, and fellow registered members and users here on the official Indianapolis Colts Fan Forum Message Board, a Happy New Year 2019, with your families, relatives, and close friends.

     

    NO injuries,  Colts win -  in Nashville, they are in  - the playoffs, earning at least a Wild Card Berth, and their first playoff appearance since their 2014 NFL Season.  Pull the Upset And Sweep The Titans in Round 2 Tonight At Music City, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!

  8. Hi, Colts fans!    The Jaguars @ Texans game will be indeed be televised locally in Indiana(polis),  for the Week 17 regular season finale played at Houston, with Andrew Catalon and James Lofton announcing for the NFL On CBS, with WTTV CBS Channel 4 televised locally on HD.

     

    Both the NFL On CBS, and The NFL On FOX traditionally televise early and late double header games on the Week 17 Regular Season Finale. Besides the Jaguars @ Texans early game, Indianapolis can also see locally the Browns @ Ravens late game on CBS, and Cowboys @ N.Y. Giants, and Bears @ Vikings  primary double header games on the NFL On FOX, and locally on WXIN FOX Channel 59.

     

    7  regular season games are scheduled at 1:05 PM, and  8 more games at 4:05 PM and 4:25 PM, leading up to the Colts @ Titans Sunday Night Game On NBC.

  9. Hi, Colts fans!  The Colts @ Titans game and clash has been flexed to next Sunday Night according to NFL.com.  The Colts and Titans are currently tied at 9-6 in the regular season, and the Colts won the earlier meeting by the score of 38-10, played at the real LOS back on November 18.

     

    Colts fans, yours truly included, will watch the Jaguars @ Texans game earlier Sunday afternoon - I have to believe and figure CBS will televise the game in the Indianapolis area, and if the Jaguars upset the Texans in Houston, the Colts @ Titans game will have a big implication on the outcome when they play their showdown in Nashville.

     

    The Indianapolis Colts  @ Tennessee Titans  game have the honor of being the 512th and last scheduled game (32 teams X 16 weeks)  when they play on December 30 to conclude the 2018 NFL regular season.

     

    Colts win, we're in -  and also sweep the home and home series over the Titans in 2018  - the 2018 NFL Playoffs! 

     

    Still,  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!

  10. Hi, Colts fans!   Our 8-6 Indianapolis Colts have won 7 of the last 8 regular season games since October 21 after starting the season losing four of their first five games at 1-5,  and continue their momentum and surge  into a possible Wild Card postseason playoff spot, as they host the surging New York football Giants at the real Lucas Oil Stadium.  N.Y. Giants are visiting, and playing, a regular season game in Downtown Indianapolis in more than eight years.

     

    With the Titans win 25-16 in Nashville on Saturday Night, and if the Eagles upset the visiting and 10-4 Houston Texans at Philadelphia while this Colts game is played, the AFC South could be interesting in the season finale next Sunday, as the Jaguars visit the Texans, while our Colts may play a showdown with the Titans as the AFC South Divisional Title, and Wild Card, can potentially be at stake between our Colts, Texans, and Titans.

     

    As the aforementioned Colts won 7 of their past 8 regular season games heading into this afternoon, the New York Giants started at 1-7 to start their 2018 NFL season,  Since their Week 9 bye week, the N.Y Giants have won four of their last six games and are now 4-2. Their 17-0 home loss last Sunday to the Tennessee Titans though eliminated them from playoff contention.

     

    An interesting battle of QB's today as the Colts own Andrew Luck vs. the N.Y. Giants 14-year veteran Eli Manning.  N.Y Giants also have other significant offensive weapons the Colts defense have to keep in check from advancing downfield this afternoon in rookie RB Saquan Barkley,  but WR Odell Beckham, Jr. is inactive,

     

    Both Indianapolis and the New York Giants are meeting in their 19th all-time meeting, after playing 16 regular season, and 2 postseason games,  which are when the Baltimore Colts won consecutive NFL Championships over the N.Y. Giants in 1958 and 1959.

     

    indianapolis is also on a current three-game regular season winning streak over the N.Y. Giants, and also have won 4 of the last five games since November 14, 1999.

     

    Indianapolis defeated the N.Y. Giants in both teams last meeting played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey back on November 3, 2014.   Game highlights include Andrew Luck throwing four touchdown passes - 32 yards to Coby Fleener, 40 yards to Reggie Wayne, 2 yards to Dwayne Allen, and 31 yards to T..Y. Hilton.  Adam Vinatieri kicked four PAT's, and four field goals from 48,  31, 48, and 43. yards to make the final score 40-24.

     

    New York Giants last regular season visit and game in Indianapolis was also the the last game when the Manning brothers played opposite each other for their teams - the so-called 'Manning Bowl.'  The Colts and Peyton Manning statistically outdueled the New York Giants and Eli Manning both on the scoreboard and statistically when Peyton's Colts won 38-14 at the real LOS back on September 19, 2010. 

     

    Peyton completed 20 of his 26 passes for 255 yards, 3 TD's,  0 INT, and 1 sack.  Brother Eli  completed 13 of 24 passes completed for 161 yards, 2 TD's, 1 INT, and 4 sacks.

  11. Hi, Colts Nation!   Great win and 24-21 upset by our Indianapolis Colts last Sunday at Houston.  Our 7-6 Colts are back in both the friendly confines, and local fan support of the Blue Horseshoe Nation inside the real Lucas Oil Stadium, as they host the 8-5 and NFC East leading Dallas Cowboys. 

     

    Cowboys are playing a regular season road game in Indianapolis in eight years.  But Indianapolis is  also attempting to end their three-game regular season losing streak since 2002 to Dallas, not defeating the Cowboys on a regular season game in 16 years, ans defeat the Cowboys since the Colts started playing their games at LOS since 2009. 

     

    Colts are also playing their last two home games of the 2018 NFL Regular Season hosting consecutive NFC East interdivisional opponents, they Cowboys this Sunday afternoon, and later the New York football Giants in the home season finale at LOS, Next Sunday, December 23.

     

    Dallas Cowboys have been the most progressive and advanced team in the past six weeks, since they came back from their Week 8 bye week, to lose to the Tennessee Titans 28-14 on Monday Night Football back on November 5.

     

    Since that date, the Cowboys are at their present five-game winning streak two developments have favored the Cowboys, notably acquiring WR Amari Cooper, replacing Dez Bryant at WR before the trade deadline in late October, and the Redskins losing their last four regular season games, after losing both  Redskins QB's  Alex Smith  and Colt McCoy the rest of this season  and on injured reserve, and the instability of Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson.

     

    Indianapolis is also avenging their 42-7 loss to Dallas in both teams last regular season meeting played at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, back on December 21, 2014.  Dallas lead most of that game 42-0, until Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck avoided the shutout, throwing his 1-yard TD pass to Zurlon Tipton, plus Adam Vinetieri's PAT, with 4:26 remaining in the fourth quarter.

     

    Dallas also leads the all-time regular series at 10-6-0, in this afternoon's 17th meeting.

     

    Today's Colts Vs. Cowboys game is also  the marquee regional  single header game seen in the majority of the USA  for The NFL On FOX, with Kevin Burkhardt and Charles Davis doing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Pam Oliver, and seen regionally, and locally on WXIN FOX Channel 59, live on HD.

     

    Colts and LOS's building management  will still  leave the  retractable roof closed for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because there will be sunny skies, but still cold around the stadium area at 47 degrees, feels like 44 degrees, along with 0% precipitation, 71% humidity, and western winds at 7 miles per hour.

     

    Head Linesman Carl Cheffers leads his NFL Officiating Crew, to supervise the game action in the LOS playing field this afternoon.

     

    NO injuries, Win your First Home Game Over The Cowboys At The Real LOS, Stay In The Hunt For The Upcoming NFL Playoffs, And Keep Pace With The Houston Texans For The AFC South Lead, And LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!

  12. I'll also predict 28-14 Colts win over Texans Coltsbestever, considering Andrew Luck has more veteran NFL experience and leadership than DeShaun Watson, Colts defence has to also contain and overcome the Texans from the NFL's #5 scoring offense while the Colts have the #15 scoring offense. GO COLTS!!     :coltslogo:  :coltshelmet:  :colts:

  13. Hi, Colts fans!  :default_20smile: Our Indianapolis Colts try to go above their 6-6 regular season record, as they are in Southeast Texas to play the 9-3 and AFC South leading Houston Texans,  Texans are on a nine-game winning streak since losing their first three games of the regular season, hence their 9-3 record, but the Colts certainly won't be their tenth straight opponent  in as many games to continue their streak.

     

    Colts seek to win again in Houston's NRG Stadium this after Jacoby Brissett threw 2 touchdown passes, both to T.Y Hilton from 45 and 80 yards, and Adam Vinitieri added his two field goals from 22 and 53 yards, and his 2 PAT's, for the 20-14 final back on November 5, 2017.

     

    Colts seeks to avenge their earlier loss, when Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked his game-winning, 37-yard field goal with 5:00 left in overtime, to help Houston defeat Indianapolis 37-34, at the real Lucas Oil Stadium back on September 30.

     

    Indianapolis still leads the all-time regular season series over the Houston Texans over any NFL opponent since the series and rivalry in the AFC South began in September 2002 at 25 wins and 8 losses, but the Texans has won 4 of the last 6 games since December 2015.

     

    Texans record has improved by five games in 2018, and were 4-8 after  13 weeks of the 2017 NFL season, due to their second-year QB. DeShaun Watson. Watson may have won NFL Rookie Of The Year and help the Texans from their 4-12 record last year, and continue setting both Texans and NFL rookie record, if it wasn't his torn ACL he suffered in practice after a Week 8 loss in Seattle.

     

    NRG Stadium's retractable roof will likely be closed, because mostly cloudy skies at 50 degrees, feels like 47 degrees, is the local forecast for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0%  precipitation, 63% humidity, and north/northwest winds at 8 miles per hour.

     

    Head Linesman Bill Vinovich and his NFL officiating crew will supervise the game action in the NRG Field between the Colts and Texans.

     

    Colts and Texans players continue to participate  during December's 'My Cause, My Cleats,' campaign, by wearing their personal Nike custom-designed football cleats they wear on the field during game action , to raise public aware and support their personal causes and charities.

         

    NO injuries, win your seventh straight on the road as they Texans have done earlier in Indianapolis, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!   :rock:  :coltslogo:    :1colts:  :colts:   :1colts:   :coltslogo:    :rock:
