Colts @ Chargers Monday Night Football Game Thread


Recommended Posts

Greetings, and I hope all of you are enjoying your Columbus Day holiday, Colts fans! :) Our 4-1 Colts are in San Diego to play the 2-3 Chargers on prime time for ESPN's Monday Night Football. and will try win their fifth game of the 2013 regular season tonight, on Andrew Luck's Monday Night Football debut.

Indianapolis won't be able to see former Colts linebacker Dwight Freeney, as he is out for the season, and placed on the injured reserve list, after suffering a torn quadracep during the Chargers home game with the Dallas Cowboys last week.

Tonight is the 28th all-time regular season meeting between the teams, and a rivalry that started when the then-Baltimore Colts defeated the Chargers 16-14 in the first game since the AFL-NFL merger of both leagues back on September 20, 1970. San Diego though leads the all-time regular season series 17 games and 10 losses over the Baltimore/Indianapolis Colts.

Chargers defeated the Colts by the score of 23-17. in Indianapolis's last visit to San Diego in the AFC Wild Card Divisional Playoff Game back on January 3, 2009. Colts scoring in that game included a 1-yard run by Joseph Addai, a 43-yard FG by Adam Vinateiri, and a Reggie Wayne 72-yard pass from Peyton Manning. Peyton threw for 310 yards and 1 touchdown. Chargers won with a 1-yard TD run by LaDainian Tomlinson, a Nate Kaeding 26-yard FG, and two TD runs by Darren Sproles from 9 and 22 yards, the second score sealing the win for San Diego.

Chargers also eliminated the Colts from the playoffs for the second time in their last visit to San Diego. San Diego also eliminated Indianapolis 28-24 during the AFC Divisional Playoff Game at Qualcomm Stadium back on January 13, 2008.

Colts though, defeated the Chargers 23-20 their last regular season road game in San Diego back on November 23, 2008. Peyton Manning threw two touchdowns, a 13-yard pass to Anthony Gonzalez in the second quarter, and a 1-yard pass to Dominic Rhodes in the third quarter. Colts kicker Adam Vinateiri also kicked three field goal, from 23 and 38 yards, and his 51-yarder went through as time expired in the game, to seal the 23-20 win for the Colts.

Mike Tirico and Jon Gruden are announcing the live TV commentary, along with sideline reporter Lisa Salters, for ESPN's Monday Night Football coverage, seen live around the USA and, at US military installations around the world, live on HD.

WTHR NBC channel 13 in Indianapolis will also televise ESPN's Monday Night Football live over-the-air feed, also live on HD, seen throughout the Indianapolis area. beginning at 8:30PM, Eastern Standard Time.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former Colts QB and Wisconsin Badger Jim Sorgi are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network. Kevin Harlan and Dan Fouts will also announce the Colts @ Chargers game live on national radio, along with sideline reporter Tim Ryan, on the Westwood One Radio Network.

Sunny and clear skies at 72 degrees is the local gametime forecast at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego for the 8:40PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 45% humidity, 0% precipitation, and mild northwest winds at 7 miles per hour.

Visiting Colts players are wearing their matching white jerseys and pants on the playing field tonight, while the host Chargers are wearing their powder blue jerseys, and white pants.

Both the Colts and Chargers players, and their coaching and support staffs, alogng with the rest and all of the NFL teams, will continue to wear pink NFL Equipment Apparel both on the playing field, and in the sidelines, to continue the NFL's 'A Crucial Catch' campaign to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout the month of October.

NO injuries to both the Colts and Chargers, but let's hope Andrew Luck and the Colts win their first regular season game in San Diego since 2008! Stay 'Colts Strong,' and GO COLTS!!!!! ;) :D:excited::rock: :pass: :coltshelmet::blueshoe::coltslogo: :ribbon: :colts::1colts::coltslogo: :ribbon:

    • Yes, I mostly agree here.    I think Rivers will play EVERY week.   And you have to respect a guy whose playing with pain like this.    I'm only saying his QUALITY of play may be uneven based on his pain tolerance.   That's all I'm trying to say.  
    • Don't mean to be argumentative,  but.....   The chances of 5 QB's going in the top-10 I think are Slim and None, and Slim has already left town.    I believe the last time 5 QB's went in the top-10 is....    Never.     Off the top of my head MAYBE the famous '83 draft?     And 6 in the top 20?    Again,  highly not likely.        And some of these guys, while getting a lot of attention, the scouts are going to pick them apart in ways that fans don't.   At least one of these guys will likely fall out of the first round.    Maybe more than one.       And remember,  of the five quarterbacks taken just a few years ago in 2018,  the best one came....  with the 32nd pick, Lamar Jackson.    The famous top-4 of Mayfield, Darnold, Rosen and Allen is not looking so great.    Allen appears to be getting the most love of these four.   People appear to be 50/50 on Mayfield.   Darnold has been mishandled and looks questionable at best.   And Rosen appears to be a bust.     So, maybe 2 out of the top 4 appear to be worth the pick.    And then there's Jackson who has exceeded expectations of many.      I'm just saying predicting QB's, especially this early,  is an invitation for a misevaluation.  
    • Well one would assume if he could play last week he’s going to be able to play this week and it’s probably healed at least a little bit.  Is he going to be 100%?  No.  Is he still going to be good enough to play and still the best QB available to the Colts on the roster?  Yes.  That’s all I am saying.  He played through it once already so unless he injuries it more I don’t think it’s something we need to freak out about is all, not that you were freaking out.
    • IMO the hope is probably that he's ready for the playoffs... if we get to the playoffs without him. Officially he's week-to-week. Depending on the severity of the sprain, MCL injuries usually take between 2 and 4 weeks so... yeah... Maybe we get him back for the last game or two... or maybe we save him for the playoffs. I don't know... that's a total guess on my part. No expertise and no internal knowledge here.
