Colts @ Buccaneers Game Night Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! Veteran backup QB Curtis Painter earns his first career start, as the Colts are in Tampa Bay to play the Buccaneers for the first time in eight years. Colts are trying to avoid an 0-4 start this season, and are also making their second appearance in primetime national television in as many weeks, tonight on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

Colts return to Tampa where, through Peyton Manning's leadership, set the NFL record for quickest comeback in NFL history, scoring three touchdowns within the last five minuites of regulation, and winning in overtime 38-35 with Mike Vanderjagt's FG back on October 6, 2003. Both the Colts and Buccaneers are meeting for the 12th time during the NFL regular season tonight, with the Colts leading the all-time series 7-4, and 3-2 in Tampa.

Colts also defeated the Buccaneers in their recent meeting three years ago at the RCA Dome 33-14 back on October 7, 2007, despite Marvin Harrison and Joseph Addai not playing due to their injuries.

Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden, and Ron Jaworski will announce the live TV game commentary along with sideline reporter Wendi Nix for ESPN's Monday Night Football on HD. Bob Lamey, Wil Wolford, will also announce the live radio game commentary along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN Radio 1070AM and WHNK Country 98.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

Local weather forecast at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa for tonight's 8:30PM kickoff is clear evening skies at 78 degrees, feels like 76 degrees, 0% precipitiation, 53% humidity, and mild northern winds at 8 miles per hour.

Visiting Colts tonight may wear their matching white road jerseys and pants, while the host Buccaneers will wear their red home jerseys, and pewter pants.

All NFL teams, including both the Colts and Buccaneers tonight, are wearing pink NFL equipment and apparel throughout thr month of October both on the field, and in their sidelines during tonight's game, to traditionally recognize the NFL's support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I wish the Colts no injuries, and execute their game plan successfully on offense, defense, and special teams. Please prevail for your first win for yourselves, and your fans back in Indiana, and GO COLTS!!!!!
