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.

    • The bottom line is they think losing him would be a bigger detriment in the locker room then if they just let him play it out. I am almost willing to bet they have talked to teams leaders to gauge if there is any back lash going on with AV. From the way it sounds so far the players are blaming how they are playing more then they are blaming themselves.
    • that's exactly what we should not be doing.   have you ever heard the phrase "perfect is the enemy of good?"  Well until the perfect quarterback comes around I'm perfectly satisfied with the good one we already have.   And I really think that squandering the draft assets to chase an ephemeral perfect Qb will hamstring us in other areas.   The microscope some of you guys hold Brissett under is abolutely ridiculous, expecting him to do things that maybe 4 QB in the entire league are actually capable of or you dismiss him as "average" or "a career backup."  It's honestly pathetic at this point.   Exactly 0 of the QBs that won Superbowls in the last 15 years were guys drafted to be the perfect QB.  15 of those 15 teams had a QB with flaws -- even Manning had his share of flaws by the time he won one, with his age mounting and his health starting to deteriorate.   We wasted a lot of time in the Manning era chasing Superbowls with a QB heavy team and living in denial about how bad certain areas of the team were, especially on D, because Manning bailed it out.  Cost us over and over again against the Patriots until 06 when we finally managed to eke one out against them.   Then we draft Luck and repeat those same mistakes until we break Luck down and wear him out trying to cover for all the flaws we refuse to admit are there until he retires.   There IS a reason our internet nickname is "the Glue Factory."  We are not kind to our horses at times, and overoptimistically expect too much of key producers while providing too little support.  And our solution to any problem, especially at QB, is to throw it away and draft another one.  The whole league is bad about this but we're among the worst.   Just once I'd like to see the fans of this franchise admit that there's more to winning football games than having a QB and that the solution to all team problems is not to throw the QB into the woodchipper and draft another one.  It's infuriating to be the fan of the second worst team in the league when it comes to this attitude (second only to the Jets) and watch it unfold in realtime again and again.
    • You've got a stable of backs, a few good TE's, a few WR's not named TY who's a blue chip and a high draft pick in Campbell, then there's what should be a top offensive line. The talent is there. I'm not saying there aren't tweeks to be made, but this iteration of the offense is for lack of a better way of putting, "built",  the QB drama withstanding. There's a reason this team was pegged as a Super Bowl contender before the start of the season, and it's not because the D was supposed to be an all time unit.
    • So true       @EastStreet      If the team replaced AV the team would also lose his leadership which could be worrisome 
    • Agreed     That is what I meant by KOS      NE is having Kicking issues themselves so I don’t think they would sign AV
