  1. Happy New Year, Colts fans!  :)  But not as entirelyhappy for our loyal and devoted Indianapolis Colts  fans, to start  2018 before New Year's Eve, especially here on the Colts Fan Friendly Forum, as our 3-12 Indianapolis Colts will try to conclude their 2017 NFL Season by winning their fourth game with the visiting, and 4-11  Houston Texans.


    Both the Colts and Texans have suffered injuries to their starting and veteran players, throughout the 2017 NFL season, and reflects on both teams records. As examples, the Texans lost star players J.J. Watt and rookie QB DeShaun Watson, at the time was on his way to earning NFL Offensive Rookie Of the Year accolades. Colts suffered more players to injured reserve, notably Andrew Luck. Luck spent this season rehabilitating in Europe, and he indicates he should and be ready physically to play be training camp.


    With a win, Colts could finish 2017 with a 4-12 record, last accomplishing during their 1993 NFL season.  However, a Colts loss would also finish Indianapolis as they have achieved  in consecutive seasons in both 1997 and 1998, before the Colts drafted Peyton Manning, with consecutive 3-13 records.


    If there is any added incentive in this afternoon's season finale, the Colts by far have the best winning percentage over the Texans over any NFL opponent entering today with a 24 win, and 7 loss record, a winning percentage  of .774, and in today's 32nd regular season meeting.  


    Indianapolis also defeated Houston to end their three-game losing streak in their last meeting played at NRG Stadium.  Jacoby Brisset threw to touchdowns passes,  from 45 yards and 80 yards, to T.Y. Hilton, and Adam Vinitieri also added his two field goals from 22 and 53 yards, plaus his 2 PAT's to help the Colts defeat the Texans back on November 5.


    Just a temporary setback for our Colts team, and the Colts will try on a clean slate in 2018, to see both return of Andrew Luck and their level of excellence and talent to return to the NFL Playoffs  for the first time since January 2014.


    Thanks for entertaining us, try to win one more game in front of your fans at LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :rock:    :cheer:    :coltslogo:  :1colts:    :colts:    :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:    :cheer: .:D

  2. Hi, Colts Nation.   :)  Our 3-11 Indianapolis Colts will try to play spoilers this afternoon, as they are in Baltimore in their last scheduled regular season road game, to play the 8-6 Baltimore Ravens.  Our Colts will still try to thwart the Ravens, from earning a road win from Baltimore, and also avoid the Ravens  from qualifying in the 2017 NFL Playoffs. Both the Colts and Ravens also lead off Week 16, the next-to-the-week, of the  2017 NFL Regular Season.


    Colts defeated Baltimore by the score of 20-13,  in both teams last meeting played at LOS (the building),  back on October 5, 2014.  Andrew Luck completed 32 of his 49 passes for  312 yards, one touchdown pass to Dwayne Allen from 6 yards, and Luck scored on a 13-yard TD run.  Adam Vinitieri completed the completed the game scoring for the Colts with his 38-yard field goal in the first quarter,, and his 2 PAT's.


    Colts have also been decimated by injuries by many veteran players and rookies since the preseason, leading and contributing to their current 3-11 record.


    Colts  also seeks to win their first regular season game at Baltimore in more than eight years.  Matt Stover kicked his game-winning 25 yard field goal, with 7:02 remaining in the fourth quarter,  to help Indianapolis edge Baltimore 17-15 at M&T Bank Stadium back on November 22, 2009.


    Indianapolis also leads Baltimore in today's 15th all-time meeting with a 10 win and 4 loss record, including 11 previous regular season games and 3 prior postseason games, since the Colts defeated Ravens 26-21, in both teams first meeting, played at the RCA Dome back on October 13, 1996.


    Our Colts are on track unfortunately to suffer their worst regular season record since the 2011 Indianapolis Colts finished with  their 2-14 record, the primary shortcoming when Peyton Manning was placed on injured reserved that year with his neck surgeries,  Dan Orlovsky, Curtis Painter, and Kerry Collins had various starts that season in place of Peyton at QB.


    Colts both will try to avoid today finishing with a three-win NFLregular season, since consecutive 3-13 seasons back on 1997 and 1998.


    This year, Jacoby Brisset took most of the snaps behind center after being acquired by the Patriots before the start of the regular season, with Scott Tolzien as his  backup.  Incumbent Andrew Luck reportedly is rehabilitating from his shoulder surgery in Europe.  Beside the current 2017 NFL regular season, Andrew Luck has missed 26 of the last 48 games, both  preseason and regular season, dating back to the 2015 NFL season.


    Greg Gumbel and former NFL QB Trent Green, are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Jamie Ehrdahl, simulcast on both The NFL On CBS, and international cable on the NFL Network. However, the Colts @ Ravens Saturday Afternoon NFL Game will be seen over the air on the local teams markets,  both at WJZ CBS Channel 13 in Baltimore, and locally  in Indianapolis on WTTV CBS Channel 4. live on HD.


    A mix of showers and rain 61 degrees, feels like 58 degrees,  is the live game forecast inside M&T Bank Stadium, for the 4:35PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with  45% precipitation, 71% humidity, and  southwest winds at 18 miles per hour.


    I still want to try to shed some light, and remind all of you,  that this will always be the holiday season at this time of year in December, and I personally wish everyone,  from Nadine The Colts Fan forum Administrator, on  to the other moderators, and especially to our registered users and members here on the Official Indianapolis Colts Fan (Friendly) Forum, the best of your Merry Christmas holidays, with your close family members, relatives, and close friends!  :)

  4. Low scoring game, Mother Nature always wins. Of course I want the Colts to win, but at the same time see no injuries by both teams. I knew there is snow, but O didn’t expect the fog would have an impact on visibility in this game. NFL should have scheduled this in September!

  5. Greetings, Colts Nation!  :) .  A game and battle of two teams playing out their 2017 NFL season at Western New York State, as our 3-9 Indianapolis Colts, are in Orchard Park, southeast of Buffalo, to play the Bills, in today's 69th all-time meeting.


    Colts seek to win their first regular season road game at Buffalo in 14 years.  Edgerrin James scored his 1-yard touchdown run, followed by Peyton Manning's two-point pass play conversion to James Mungro, with 1:38 left in the fourth quarter, helped the Colts recent win at Buffalo by the score of 17-14 at then-named Ralph Wilson Stadium, back on November 23, 2003.


    Buffalo also defeated Indianapolis in both teams recent meeting also played at Orchard Park more than two years ago, with the Bills prevailing 27-14, back on opening week of the regular season on September 13, 2015.


    Bills though leads the all-time regular season series with  36 wins, 31 losses, and 1 tie, the tie occuring on both teams first meeting after the AFL-NFL merger, the score 17-178, and played at Baltimore Memorial Stadium back on November 15, 1970.


    Regional outside elements, especially the gusty eastern arctic winds from Lake Erie, may definitely have an impact on both teams performance and results on the playing field, as the cloudy skies and snow is the game forecast inside New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York, for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 75% precipitation, 63% humidity, and west/northwest winds at 18 miles per hour.


    NO injuries, Continue To Play With Pride And Colts Strong Remaining in Your 2017 NFL Season Starting This Afternoon, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :coltslogo:  :1colts:    :colts:   :coltslogo:   :rock:

  6. With Jaguars defeating our Colts 30-10 earlier in the afternoon, Indianapoliis may have eliminated themselves fro  playoff contention with their 3-9 record with four games remaining.


    To me, the rest of this season is temporary setback, the Colts have a chance to rise back to excellence next season and the years ahead.  I feel the Colts are playing the best they can with the payers and talent they have.


    Patriot also gave a beatdown to the Buffalo Bills, the Colts next opponent 23-3 today.  Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was indeed carted offf the field, and we may Nathan Peterman in his place next Sunday, when the Colts travel to Orchard Park next Sunday.

  7. Greetings, Colts Nation!  :)   Our 3-8 Indianapolis Colts are still maththematically alive to be in the hunt for an AFC Wild Card spot, as they made their annual 700 mile trip south in Jacksonville, Florida to play their annual rematch with the improved, 7-4 and second place Jaguars.  A win by the Jaguars could virtually eliminate the Colts from 2017 NFL playoff contention.


    Player injuries that is part of football also unfortunately played a big part  of the Colts, made them below team expecttions with their  current 3-8 record, and progress of their 2017 NFL season.  Andrew Luck never shoulder injury never healed in time for him to be game ready this season, and Luck leads the list of Colts players placed on injury reserve, including Robert Turbin, Jack Mewhort, Quin Bray, George Winn, and Eric Swoope.  


    TE  Darren Daniels, C Ryan Kelly, CB Rashan Melvin, and DT Hassan Ridgeway are ruled out for the Jaguars game, while WR Donte Moncrief is questionable and game time decision, as he recovers from his groin injury.


    Colts last week promoted  WR K.C. Brent, and C Anthony Fabiano from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster.


    Indianapolis leads the all-time regular season series in Sunday afternoon's 34th regular season meeting with 22 wins and 11 losses.  Colts will also try to defeat the Jaguars in EverBank Field in more than three years, when a healthy Andrew Luck led the Colts with a 44-17 victory,  Luck  completed 31 of his 39 passes for 370 yards, threw 4 touchdowns, and 0 INT's.


    Let's hope Chuck Pagano, QB Jacoby Brisset, and the rest of the Colts players, can try to win game #4 without injuries to the players, and GO COLTS!!!  :coltslogo:   :1colts:   :colts:   :coltslogo:     :coltshelmet:  :rock:

  8. Hi, Colts fans!  :)   The absence of Andrew Luck's presence continues to be felt all season, as our 3-7 Indianapolis Colts return from their Week 11 bye week, and  host the visiting, and 6-4, second place  Tennessee Titans in the first rematch this 2017 NFL regular season with an AFC South divisional opponent.


    Colts QB Jacoby Brissett, has cleared concussion protocol, and also is cleared and expected to start Sunday against the Titans.


    The resurging Titans ended the Colts 11-game regular season winning streak  over Tennessee, by defeating our Colts 36-22, during ESPN's Monday Night Football,   at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, in both teams earlier meeting back on October 16, 2017.


    Despite the Colts losing record this year, Tennessee has  yet to win a regular season road game at Indianapolis in almost 10 years, and also have not yet, won a regular season road game,  since the Colts started playing their home games at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) in 2009.  Titans last defeated the Colts  16-10 at the RCA Dome, in the season finale, back on December 30, 2007.


    Indianpolis has  also won twice as many games over Tennessee in their divisional head-to-head rivalry, including one postseason game (Titans 19-16 win in 2000) with 31 wins and 15 losses, in Sunday's 47th all-time meeting.


    Chris Myers and former Dallas Cowboys fullback Daryl Johnston are announcing the live TV game commentary for The NFL On FOX, seen regionally, and locally on WXIN Fox Channel 59, seen live on HD.


    LOS's roof and glass doors is open, for Sunday afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because sunny and clear skies at 44 degrees, feels like 40 degrees, is the game forecast outside the stadium in Downtown Indianapolis.

  9. Hi, Colts fans!  :)  Our Indianapolis Colts  begin the second half of their 2017 NFL regular season, as they host the visiting, and AFC North diviision leaders at 6-2, Pittsburgh Steelers a LOS (the building)  tin today's 30th all-time meeting, including 24 regular season, and 5 postseason games.


    Jacoby Brisset and backup Scott Tolzien will lead the Colts at QB  the rest of the 2017 NFL regular season after Andrew Luck was placed on season ending injured reserve because of his slow-healing shoulder injury following surgery, dating back to December 2016.


    Indianapolis will try to both defeat Pittsburgh for the first time since the Colts started playing their games at Lucas Oil Stadium in 2009.  Colts last home win over the Steelers was 12 years ago, when Indianapolis defeated Pittsburgh 26-7  at the RCA Dome, back on November 28, 2005.  Colts also has won only  one of the seven previous meetings beginning with the 2005 AFC  Wild Card Playoff Game in January 2006, and are on  current five-game losing streak with the Steelers entering today.


    Peyton Manning threw the game winning, 17-yard  touchdown pass to Dominic Rhodes for the Colts with 3:04 remaining in the fourth quarter, along with  an Adam Vinitieri PAT, to defeat the Steelers 24-20, for the Colts last regular season victory, and played at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, back on November 9, 2008.


    Colts are technically,  and still mathematically,  alive for a Wild Card Playoff berth  despite their 3-6 record, one record better than the 0-9 Cleveland Browns, but  after 10 weeks are 2 1.2 games behind the Wild Card.    Andrew Luck's  absence from as an active player and on the playing field, and injuries within the team are major reasons the Colts have their current record as the start Week 10 game action, of the NFL's enduring 16-game regular season.


    Indianapolis also have a daunting task to defeat Pittsburgh today as the Colts  have only won 6 of the previous 23 games since the rivalry began 67 years ago, when the Steelers defeated the Baltimore  Colts 17-7, in both teams first regular season meeting, played at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, back on November 12, 1950.


    Colts were also 0-5 to the Steelers in   AFC Playoff games, in 1975 and 1976 during the Bert Jones era, 1996, and 2006.


    NO injuries, go for win #4 before your start your bye week, and  in front of  your Colts fans,  continue to stay Colts Strong, defeat the

    Steelers Nation present at LOS, and LET'S GO COLTS!    :cheer: :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet: :coltslogo:   :cheer:  :rock:

  10. Hi, Colts fans!   :)    An AFC South battle where both teams star players suffered injuries, as out  2-6  Indianapolis Colts travel to play the 3-4 Houston Texans.


    Both teams have lost their quarterbacks in the past week.  Colts QB Andrew Luck had surgery after the 2016 off-season to repair his right shoulder.  Since then Luck was held out of training camp and from participating in any games because the healing process is still taking longer than expected.  After a brief practice, the Colts decided to place Luck on injured reserve, making him unavaillable for the rest of the 2017 NFL season.


    Luck recently signed a six-year, $140 year extension, with $87 million guaranteed to stay and play the Colts back on June 29, 2016, and just prior to his surgery, missed one game because of a concussion.


    Texans will also lose their rising rookie Deshaun Watson, who tore his ACL on a non-contact play during team practice last week, which prematurely ended his season,  Watson already earned and was awarded both AFC Offensive Player Of The Month, and NFL Offensive Rookie of The Month in October, and would have been in the running for the NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year without his torn ACL injury.


    Colts will also not see Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, left the game after Week 5 with a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg and is out for the season.  Watt also had a previous surgery for a herniated disk, and he was also place on injured reserve in 2016.


    Jacoby Brissett and Tom Savage will be the starting QB's for both the Colts and the Texans for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff from NRG Stadium.


    Indianapolis still leads the all-time regular season series with 23 wins and 7 losses in today's 31st divisional meeting, but are on a three-game losing streak over Houston, and seek to win the ir first road game at the Texans since the Colts 27-20 road win back on October 2015.
