Colts @ Titans Thursday Night Football Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Welcome back, Colts fans!   :)    Our 6-3 and AFC South leading Indianapolis Colts are down south in Nashville, Tennessee to play the 4-5 Tennessee Titans in an important AFC South divisional battle for  The NFL Network's Thursday Night Football nationally-televised coverage.

 

Colts can  use tonight's game with the Titans as a way to bring back their confidence as a team, and vindicate themselves from last Sunday's horrible home loss and blowout to the St. Louis Rams last Sunday.  Ram's Tavon Austin burned the Colts especially with his 98-yard punt return, and his two pass receptions from 57 yards and 81 yards from  Rams QB Kellen Winslow, earning him NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week at the Colts expense.  Only scoring highlight for Indianapolis in that game was a 13-yard touchdown pass to RB Donald Brown  from QB Andrew Luck, followed by a successful two-point conversion to TE Coby Fleener on the last scoring highlight by either team, preventing the Colts from being shut out by Rams.  Luck is also the top performer for the Colts with his 29 out his 47 passes completed for 353 yards, but suffered 3 of those passes for interceptions in a losing cause.

 

Tennessee meanwhile lost to the previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars, defeating the Titans 29-27 this past Sunday at LP Field, earning Jacksonville their first regular season win in 2013.

 

Colts promoted Da'rick Rogers from the practice squad, cut recently by the Buffalo Bills, and may see active duty providing spark during game action with the receiving corps. He will join T.Y. Hilton, LaVon Brazill, Griff Whalen, and Darius Heyward-Bey, as all of the Colts receivers may see their share of reception to replace  veteran and fan favorite Reggie Wayne, who suffered a season-ending knee injury during the Broncos game.

 

Colts backup quarterback Matt Hasselback returns to Nashville as a Colt, where he played two seasons as a Tennessee Titan. In his two season the Titans finished 9-7 in 2011, and as a role as a mentor for Jake Lock 18er, when tnhe Titans finished 2012 with a 6-10 record. Tennessee released Hasselback on  March 18, and the Colts signed him off the waiver wire the next day on March 19.

.

Both the Colts and the Titans also adjusted and prepared themselves from their short practice week to accommodate for tonight's Thursday Night Football coverage for The NFL Network.  Colts especially took the NFL mandatory day off on Monday, took their team practice all day Tuesday, and travelled to Nashville Wednesday earlier this week.

 

A  win tonight by the Colts would give Indianapolis a three-game lead over Tennessee in the AFC South division standings. A Titans win would still put them a game behind the Colts in the AFC South, and even their record at 5-5 for the season. 

 

Tonight's is the 38th all-time regular season meeting between the Colts and the Titans,  a series dating back when the Baltimore Colts defeated the Houston Oilers 24-20 in  their first-ever meeting since the AFL-NFL merger back on November 11, 1970.  Baltimore Colts, Cleveland Browns, and the Pittsburgh Steelers entered the AFC conference as part of the Merger agreement back in 1969.

 

Colts also lead the all-time regular season series over the Titans with 23 games won over 14 losses. Colts record was 7-7 when the Titans were the Houston Oilers,  but since the NFL divisional realignment in 2002,  Indianapolis owns a 16-6 record entering tonight, and are on a three-game winning streak, their last loss on November 10, 2011, when the Colts lost 27-10 at LP Field.

 

Colts defeated and swept the Titans in 2012. Indianapolis defeated Tennessee  19-13 in Nashville on October 28, and later winning again at Indianapolis by the score of 27-23 on December 9. Both the Colts and the Titans are scheduled meet again this season at Indianapolis on December 1.

 

Indianapolis Colts are also  the only team in the NFL that have won all their games during their appearances on Thursday Night Football, their most recent TNF win was at EverBank Field at Jacksonville, where the Colts defeated the Jaguars 27-10 on the road back on November 8, 2012.  Colts record entering tonight is 6-0 with .1000 winning percentage.

 

Brad Nessler and Mike Mayock are announcing the live TV game commentary and analysis, including sideline reporter Alex Flanagan for The NFL Network.  Tonight's game can be seen locally over-the-air throughout the  Indianapolis area on WTHR NBC channel 13, live on HD.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' along with former Colts QB  and Wisconsin Badger Jim Sorgi are also announcing the live radio game-play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter Matt Taylor, simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN Sports Radio 1070AM The Fan, WLHK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network throughout Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois.

 

Ian Eagle and Trent Green are also announcing the live radio game commentary, along with sideline reporter Rocky Boiman, heard nationally, and simulcast on  The Westwood One Sports radio network throughout the USA,  includining locally in the Indianapolis area on WNDE-AM Sports Radio 1260, and WGCL News Talk 1370AM in Bloomington.

 

Clear and partly cloudy skies  at 43 degrees, feels like 40 degrees, is the local weather forcast inside Louisiana Pacific Field in Downtown Nashville, for the 8:25PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 46% precipitation, 0% humidity, and mild southern winds at 6 miles per hour.

 

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

 

Both the Colts and the Titans, along with the rest of the NFL teams throughout the month of November, are recognizing our US soldiers in the NFL's 'Salute To Service' and Military Appreciation Month campaign.  Both the Colts and Titans players, with their team and support staffs, may wear camouflaged-designed authentic NFL equipment apparel, both on the playing field, and in the sidelines, during tonight's game.

 

United States Automobile Association, USAA, is also the official military supporter of the NFL, and are sponsoring and supporting both the 'Salute To Service' and Military Appreciation Month campaign.  USAA TV ads will appear during the progress of all NFL games in November, including tonight's Thursday Night Football matchup in Nashville between the Colts and Titans.

 

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Titans despite their short practice week. Go and earn a three game lead in the AFC South with a win over the Titans in Nashville tonight, look forward to extended rest between games, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :D  :rock:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :blueshoe:  :coltshorse:  :colts:  :helmet:  :coltslogo:

This team has an amazing ability to bounce back... I fully expect them to all be angry, and come out on top.

I think they'll be so focused on taking away the deep threat in Hilton that they leave the middle of the field open for Fleener and Whalen

Their center/tackle are both out... this could come down to last qb standing unless our o-line finally makes a stand.

i expect luck to rise from the field and hover 80 yards for a td. not sure that's even legal, but watching the officials sort it out will be totally worth it

Apparently, Fleener said Luck had an intense focus all these last few days.  These guys are ready to go

    • Since Vinny's knee is basically shot for the 2019 season this is a great chance for Chris Ballard to get a good look at McLaughling as possibly the Colts starting kicker beyond 2019. Either way, the Colts will move on from Vinatieri no matter what he decides to go beyond 2019. Place him on IR and see what you have from McLaughing. Worst case scenario you sign or draft another Kicker to be your guy.
    • I don’t care if this team had Tyreek Hill and Deandre Hopkins, Brissett would still stand in the pocket for five seconds and then dump it off to Doyle in the flat. The guy is not the answer, and a bunch of cherry picked stats about his ‘efficiency’ is not going to change that. 
    • He was signed off the street by the Niners. But he was a "non-vested" player, which means he doesn't have enough years of service to reach unrestricted free agency. So whatever team he's on would have his exclusive rights for 2020 and 2021, whether he was claimed on waivers or signed as a free agent. Then he can be a restricted free agent in 2022.   His contract technically expires at the end of the 2019 league year, but the Colts can tender him and effectively extend his rookie contract, one year at a time, until 2023. (And at that point, they could franchise tag him, assuming that provision still exists in the new CBA.)   As a UDFA, the CBA allows him to be signed to a veteran extension after two years of service; for drafted players, it's three years. Until then, his contract is based on the rookie wage scale, which was determined by the CBA.   A recent case study for this is Kenny Moore. He signed with the Patriots as a UDFA in 2017, then was waived at cut down, and the Colts claimed him. After 2018, he had two years of service, so he was eligible to sign a veteran extension, which is what he did in the 2019 offseason. If he had not agreed to an extension, the Colts could have tendered him as an ERFA for 2019, and then as an RFA for 2020.
    • RG3 would be available also
    • IF Ballard and Reich still think JB is the answer at this point, then we need to start thinking about who is running what at Colt world HQs.
