Colts @ Jaguars Thursday Night Football Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans :) NFL's Salute To The Military Service weekend begins tonight as our 5-3 Indianapolis Colts seek to avenge their earlier loss to the 1-6 Jaguars as they play the rematch in Jacksonville. Jags earned their first and only win over the Colts earlier this season, and seek for the sweep in front of a national cable audience tonight. Colts in contrast will try to win their third game in a row. If the Colts prevail to win, and if the Chicago Bears win over the Houston Texans later on Sunday Night Football, Both Houston and Indianapolis can possibly close the gap to one game in the AFC South standings at 7-2 and 6-3 respectively.

Colts and the Jaguars are also both overcoming, and adjusting from their short practice week, to accomodate for tonight's NFL Network's weekly Thursday Night Football coverage.

Jacksonville earlier defeated Indianapolis in Week 3 of the 2012 season, defeating the Colts 22-17 at LOS . Colts scoring including two touchdown passes from Andrew Luck, one 40-yard pass to T.Y. Hilton, and a 4-yard TD pass to Mewelde Moore, and an Adam Vineteiri 37-yard field goal. Jaguars however won the game with three Josh Scobee field goals from 47, 44, and 26 yards, a 59-yard YD run from Maurice Jones-Drew, and a Blaine Gabbert 80-yd TD pass to Cecil Shorts. Gabbert completed 10 of 21 in his passes with a touckdown, while the Colts Andrew Luck was more productive on the field, completing 22 of his 46 pass attempts for 313 yards, two touchdowns, and one INT.

Tonight is the 23rd regular season meeting between the Colts and the Jaguars, with the Colts leading 15 games to 7. Colts and Jaguars rivalry began when the Colts defeated the Jags 41-31 at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium (now EverBankField) during the Jags inaurgual season back on December 10, 1995. Jacksonville also has won three of the last four regular season game between the teams.

Colts last regular season win over the Jaguars was 34-24 win occured back on December 19, 2010. Highlights from that game included two Peyton Manning touchdown passes to Austin Collie at 7 and 27 yards. Colts linebacker Tyjuan Hagler sealed the game, returning a failed onside kick 41 yards for the touchdown.

Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter Alex Flanagan, for The NFL Network, simulcast live both online on the internet, and on national cable, on The NFL Network.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts," and Will Wolford will also announce the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee, simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

Sunny and clear skies at 58 degrees is the local forecast for the 8:20PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff at EverBank Field in JAcksonville, Florida, along with 57% humidity, 10% precipitation, and very mild northern winds at 5 miles per hour.

Colts are wearing their matching white jerseys and pants, while the host Jaguars are wearing their matching black jerseys and pants.

NO injuries to both the Colts and Jaguars. Stay both Chuck Strong and Colts Strong, win your sixth game in 2012, before Veteran's Day weekend, and GO COLTS! :D:cheer::jump::helmet::coltshelmet::coltslogo::coltshorse::coltsfb::colts::1colts: :pass: :coltslogo::cheer:

This one is on NFL Network! I like Mike Mayock's knowledge of the game.....just not a huge fan of the NFL Network.....just me I guess. I will have Bob Lamey blaring......TV turned to mute......

I personally love the delay between TV and radio. You can listen to what is actual play-by-play, analyze the play on television, and then review any replays. I used to do it with two different TVs.......I know I am :coltslogo: :coltslogo: :coltslogo: NUTS!

MJD is out, but we cannot let down. We have been surprised by new running backs before....one's name was MJD......:)

Thank you as always to LucasOilStadium for giving us a great game day thread (Even if it is Thursday :) ) I am with you LOS......no injuries...on both sides...and go COLTS! :applause: :applause: :applause: :clap: :clap: :clap: :rock: :rock: :rock:

NO injuries

This alone is noteworthy. Great to see that our team is healthy! Here's to a win tonight and an improvement on our playoff chances! Second in the division isn't too bad for a team with tons of rookies and unknown guys all over the place. Especially in a division that boasts three of the league's best running backs. Well done, boys. Keep fighting!

BTW, is this game going to be on a local channel as well as NFLN or just NFLN?

WTHR Channel 13 is carrying out of Indianapolis at 8 PM, so that is local Channel 12 on Comcast. :)

I think it means hope there's no new injuries. Davis, Powers, and Fleener are out.

Anyone watching this ridiculous debate over which QB to start a franchise with on NFL Network?

1. Rich Eisen: Running is not part of Andrew Luck's game, unlike RG3.

FALSE. He doesn't run as much, but he has 3 rushing TDs already, and a very good first down percentage, which is what you want from a QB when he runs. He's pretty fast too.

2. Kurt Warner: RG3 can't make plays from the pocket, unlike Luck.

FALSE. Griffin has been very good throwing the ball from the pocket when he's gotten protection.

3. Deion Sanders: I want a playmaker on my team, since it will be a newly built team, and I want a QB who can make plays even with a bad running game and inconsistent offensive line. RG3 can do that, Luck can't.

FALSE. Have you watched a Colts game this year?

Opinions can very BUT these statements are flatout wrong. Seriously im embarrassed for them, they sound amateurs and don't actually watch games. Engage :facepalm:

I'm surprised at that. Warner usually gives good advice. Eisen isn't really much of an analyst, I see him as more of just the host. As for Prime, he's Prime. He's almost as bad as Irvin

Jerrell Freeman getting some love!!!

And TY Hilton is the only rookie with a 100 yard game and he has done that twice! Great job so far, Grigs!

Primetime is much worse., Irvin trust to give deep knowledge of the game, sometimes he succeeds. Prime is all flash. But yeah I agree.

Blaine Gabbert has only won 5 games out of all the game she has started in his career. Luck has won 5 games in half a season

Irvin is the biggest Cowboys homer in the world! It's ridiculous. In my opinion, it gets in the way of his ability to analyze games. He always predicts Romo to have huge games and the Cowboys to win. Even the other guys on NFL Gameday make fun of him for it

At least it's mid-day and not at like 3:00 AM. Glad you could join us from Australia!

That's right! We also don't always get TNF so I'm glad this game is televised. Been looking forward to this game for a while.

And the beauty is that The Colts are in with a real chance.

    • I've been touting 2020 as "the year" for a while now.  I might be a year too early, but in watching the league this year one thing has struck me:  there aren't any truly "elite" teams out there.  Yes some are better than others, but IMHO the difference between the top and the bottom isn't as great as it used to be.  The Colts are clearly among the average teams, so I think with another shrewd draft (and that Skins round 2 pick sure looks good!) and a couple of impact FA's, I think this team can contend next year.  And Mr. Brady isn't going to be around much longer either.
    • Just to bring this back to last Sunday. Reich should of given hoyer all the snaps in practice.  Because if Jacoby could of went he would of  been fine with no reps. Then we would of had two QB prepared.
    • Agree 100% on Willis from a box perspective. He'll be very good if that's where they focus him. On Okereke, he gets swallowed up easily vs the run. I just don't see that improving a lot with his build. He came from one of the best strength programs in D1, so I just think he's topped out in that space as well. I think that's why they're trying him out in the SAM space.   I think Rock will be fine. Most of his errors are "rookie" type errors you can expect being tossed into the deep end. Physically he's fine. I think the mental part will catch up.
    • That is exactly why the Colts are what they are and teams like the Patriots are a dynasty.  That emotional attachment did not serve Irsay well during the Pagano & Griggson era...did it?   He lost a franchise quarterback as a net result of all of this misplaced attachment because stayed too long with Griggson and Pagano who could not keep Luck out of harm’s way.   Vinny is a legend who has great exploits on his resume.  We get it.  However, I’d argue that most of his greatness was earned wearing another team’s uniform...the Patriots.  He kicked them to 3 Super Bowl titles compared to one in Indy.  He made his name and reputation with the Patriots.  Sure he has played for the Colts longer but his formulative and most accomplished years were spent in New England. And still Belichick had no problem letting him walk in 2005 when he perceived it to be in the best interest of the Patriots.  If Vinatieri was stinking it up like this with the Pats this year he would surely be gone by now...and wisely so.  But Ballard, Reich and Irsay are led by the heart strings (as you imply) and as a result the team suffers on the field.  It’s a bad message sent to the rest of the team.  Certain players can under perform and be rewarded solely on the basis of who they are and what they have achieved in the past.  While others are held accountable for poor play.  It’s a double standard that eats away at that  locker room “culture” that Ballard supposedly values so much.  Well...we are no longer living in the past and the present day Adam Vinatieri is a liability on the field to this football team.  A liability that teams like the Colts choose to live with to their detriment.  That’s not admirable...it is downright foolish in my opinion.
    • Yeah, I’ve been very pleasantly surprised by Willis. Seems to make solid plays most weeks, looked good against Miami. Good closing speed, good instincts.    Also, I know it usually takes longer for CB’s to adjust and it’s way too early to know what we have in him, but I’m in wait and see mode with Rock. Not that I don’t think he can become a capable starter, which I guess is all we can ask for, just won’t be surprised if he doesn’t hit those sky high expectations some had for him. Happy Tell has looked good though, in the small sample size we’ve seen.
