Colts @ Bengals Game Day Thread

Greetings fellow Indianapolis Colts fans! Our Colts travel down Interstate 74 and are in Cincinnati as they play the 3-2 and improved Bengals. Kickoff at Paul Brown Stadium is scheduled right after 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time. Colts will continue to resiliant as they try to upset the Bengals to perhaps finally earn their first win this season, and perhaps inspiration by Peyton Manning's presence, whether he is at the press box or on the sidelines.

Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcotts will announce the Colts/Bengals game for the NFL On CBS, but only six CBS affiliates will televise the game regionally, including WISH CBS 8 in Indianapolis On HD. Colts/Bengals game is also blacked out in Cincinati. Bob Lamey, Wil Wolford, and sideline reporter Kevin Lee will also provide live radio game coverage simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM and WHNK Country 98.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

I also wish no injuries to the players on the field, and see both players and fans happy winning your first game of the 2011 season! GO COLTS!!!!!

Wow. Nobody yet? Well let me be the first. Go Colts! Beat the Bengals. It's a different kind of season, people. But we have to keep hope alive. I can't believe I just quoted Jesse Jackson.

As bad as it feels to be winless after five games, they are still only 3 games back in the division with 11 games left to play. The season is not dead yet. If they had two 5-0 teams in the division like the NFC North does, then I would concede defeat and say that it's over. This is not the position that we wanted to be in. You never want to be playing catchup going into the tough stretch of the schedule. I'm not willing to say "die" just yet, though.

    • Two things stand out here. One I am not joking and second, I am not the dense one. 
    • I'm anxious to see which injured players we might get back this week.  I think Leonard and Pittman would give us a nice boost.   I noticed that the last 4 teams to beat the Falcons all lost the following week.  The Lions beat the Falcons last week, so maybe we keep that trend going?   This one looks like a toss up.  If we get Leonard and Pittman back, I like the Colts to come out on top, 27-24.
    • Thanks for sharing.   I wonder what these stats really tell us, since it is only for plays where the receiver is targeted.   I can't speak for last year, but the popular take I get from Colts fans is that Brissett was too conservative in his decision making and didn't push the ball downfield.  The stats you provided show that the receivers were open last year when they were targeted, but I wonder how open they were getting on all routes...I honestly don't know.  I assume Rivers makes more tight window throws than Brissett, and often times successfully, so I would expect that to skew the separation stats downward slightly for this season.
    • Yeah, it's only must win if you want a winning season.   After this game, I see at best the Colts winning  4 of 9.  Bal, Pitt, GB unlikely. Split with TN and HOU, a very tough battle out in LV.  Jax will likely be the decider for the playoffs.  Even at 4-2 we're still in 7th.  We lost the tie breaker with the Browns who most likely will be there with us so we have to be a game up and LV at the end will also trying to squeak in which makes them a must win also for tie breaker reasons. If we lose this one, we have to beat one of the big 3 left and sweep either Hou or TN.  That could be done, but for me the trouble is scoring enough.  We need to be able to score 30+ in a bunch of games coming up.  Detroit might be the first as I think Galloway is rounding back into form and Swift finally has heated up as well.   I wouldn't be surprised if we lost this game.   In the end, we likely will win a game that looks unwinnable, but lose one we think we have in the bag.  If that holds true, this game is a must win because going over .500 the rest of the way seems unlikely.  An injury to one of those team's QBs would change everything, but status quo looks more daunting.  We also need to be scoring 30+ to beat these teams for the most part.  Houston, by the way, has played most of their toughest games.  TN, like us, has a lot of tough games left.  I could still see them losing 5+ more games but doubt we win 5+ more after this week.  Our head to heads start with an away Thurs game after a brutal Bal game the Sunday before.  We've been scheduled for way more Away Thursday games than any other team in history.  If I remember right, we've only hosted on Thursday 3 times, one of which was the infamous Thanksgiving game against Pitt.  We caught a little break in that TN originally had their Bye week just before our game but now have to play their make up game with Bal that was shifted to that week.     I wouldn't be surprised to find us playing either KC, Pitt or Bal in the playoffs whether we win the division or finish as the #7 seed.  I don't like our chances with a fading QB.     Record and Scoring Ave.   @Det: 3-3 26.0 Bal: 5-1 29.83 @TN: 5-1 31.33 GB: 5-1 32.8 TN: 5-1 31.33 @Hou: 1-6 27.66 @LV: 3-3  28.5 Hou: 1-6 27.66 @Pitt: 6-0  30.5 Jax: 1-6 25.66   We are averaging 26.16 against some of the worst defenses in the league and some of our scoring has been our defense.    Based on that? This is a MUST win game to make the playoffs AND not be playing Bal or Pit or KC.  If it were a bet, I say this is a pick 'em game.  It's not, and as such I would take the points.  I think the team with the last possession with time (versus less than the 60 seconds that Stafford needs) wins.  I also think for the Colts to win, our Defense has to score. I think if we lose this game, we will have to sweep TN to make the playoffs (because of that dang loss to Jax and the need for the divisional tie breaker).     Lions 31-30 Colts  (Hope I am wrong).
