Colts Vs. Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

We are back together for another Colts NFL Game Day,  Colts Nation!  :)     A battle of the consecutive AFC South Champions this Sunday afternoon as our 2013 AFC South Champions  and 8-5 Indianapolis Colts, host  last year's  divisional champions,  and 2-9,  Houston Texans in the rematch at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).   Colts seek to sweep the home-and- home series this afternoon in Downtown Indianapolis.   Indianapolis would also have to win their remaining three games to equal their 2012 regular season record  at  11-5.


Colts won the earlier meeting six weeks ago in Houston, winning 27-24 at Reliant Stadium back on November 3, 2013.  Scoring highlights for the Colts in that game include two field goals from Colts kicker Adam Vineteiri from 30 and 35 yards.  Colts QB Andrew Luck and WR T.Y. Hilton connected on three touchdown passes from 10, 9, and 59 yards  in the second half, and Luck's two-point conversion to Coby Fleener  sealed the 27-24 victory for the Colts.


Fortunately this afternoon's game is being played inside the dry, comfortable, home field and Colts fans advantage of LOS, and help raise and confine  the crowd noise during the game.  Clear and partly cloudy skies at 20 degrees, with a wind chill of 7 degrees is forecast outside the stadium for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 77% humidity, 0% precipitation, and western winds at 14 miles per hour.


Colts are wearing their traditional blue jerseys and white pants on the field, while the Texans are wearing their white jerseys, and dark blue navy pants.


NO injuries to both the Colts, and Texans, but let's see our Colts go back not only to defeating the Texans this afternoon, but also try to pursue a home game in Indianapolis during the upcoming NFL Playoffs.  GO COLTS!!!!!    :cheer:  :rock:  :coltslogo:   :1colts:   :colts:  :coltshorse:  :coltshelmet:  :blueshoe:  :cheer:  :coltslogo:     :D

    • Yep and that is where having a great agent comes in as I posted above. 
    • Why is it that they report it like that? Is it because the cap is always uncertain?
    • Yeah to me Montana like Peyton at worse is top 3. The era Montana played in was brutal and he got 4 Rings out of it with pretty good stats for back then.
    • No insult, I know Philly is one of the rare areas with its extremely high passion for one sport above all the others. I feel Philly and Green Bay are those areas for football. Everything else is just something to kill some time.   I cant count last year because of the pandemic which is an extreme rarity and skews the numbers. But yes a small drop the last few years for the SB BUT still a huge amount and way above any other sport. When your still looking at 98-111 million viewers for the SB your talking elite numbers.    Finals- Baseball avg around 10-12 mill , Basketball 13-18 mill, Hockey 3-8 mill. Im not even counting 2020 numbers due to the pandemic.    Reg season- So yes last year it was down a ton, but all sports were down a ton. In 2019 they were on a big upraise actually increasing 1.9 mil. to a  avg viewers a week. The highest year ever 2015 for viewers was only 1 mill more then the 2019 number. So it really was not on the decline 3-4 years. 2015 the high point at 17.9 avg a week then it drops 2 years to 3 mill less a week from 2016-2017, then back up again two years in a row 2018-2019 to record numbers again to 16.5 mill a week avg and then the pandemic happens. So they were actually on a upraise again.    Lets also not forget overall TV ratings have dropped almost 10% as well. Not sports rating, overall ratings. So its not a football issue or a sports issue.    So even in a "down" slide it by far destroys every other sport. The NFL reg season avg per week is higher then most of any other sports finals viewer numbers. Maybe this does not get more money in a contract, but it will not get then much less. Once this pandemic is over, I see this jumping up dramatically and I think the NFL will use that in there favor. 
    • He responded already, but the key is $67m in "new money," divided by four additional years = $16.75m average. That's how these contracts get reported and ranked, even though it doesn't work that way on the cap.
