Colts @ Broncos Sunday Night Football Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello, everybody, Opening Week of the NFL regular season has finally arrived!  :)   :nfl:  Our 2014 Indianapolis Colts seek to defend and improve their AFC South Divisional championship, from 11-5 in both 2012 and 2013, as they are in Colorado, to play the 2013 AFC Champions Denver Broncos in the 23rd overall meeting between the teams.. Sunday's matchup is also intriguing,  the Colts play the rematch with their former star QB, and future Hall-Of-Famer Peyton Manning,  and certainly a lot of viewership on television, as tonight's matchup is the first regular season game on NBC Sports Sunday Night Football coverage.   :manning:

 

Both the Colts and the Broncos played at Indianapolis in their last meeting on October 20, 2013, and the first battle between quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning, also played on Sunday Night.   Luck outplayed his predecessor, Manning. Luck threw for three touchdowns and ran for another TD, outplaying his predecessor, and defeating the previous undefeated Broncos by the score of 39-33, just before their bye week.

 

Colts win that night ended the Broncos 17-game regular season winning streak at the time. Manning though he played spectacular for the Broncos, completing 29 passes out of 49 attempts for 386 yards, was sacked 4 times by the Colts defense, and had one interception in a losing cause. Manning appeared opposite the Colts since his release in March 2012.

 

Colts 39-33 win over the Denver Broncos at LOS also even the all-time regular and post season series at 11 games apiece, a rivalry that started that after the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, the Denver Broncos defeated the Baltimore Colts 17-6 in the first ever meeting played at Baltimore Memorial Stadium back on November 10, 1974. 

 

Colts won both preseason games at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis Colts defeated Denver in consecutive games played at the RCA Dome in indianapolis, winning 41-10 in January 4, 2004, and later by 49-24 on January 9, 2005.  Colts also outscored the Broncos in the previous 22 games  504 points, to the Colts 471.   Another Colts win tonight would break the tie and lead the series by one game at 12-11.

 

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are announcing the live TV game commentary analysis, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Michele Tafoya, on national television on NBC sports, including locally in Indianapolis on WTHR Channel 13, and internationally online on all devices, all media on HD.

 

Bob Lamey, our legendary 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former Colts, N.Y. Giants and Wisconsin Badger QB Jim Sorgi are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsCenter 1070AM WHLK The Hank Country 98.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

 

Mostly sunny skies at 77 degrees, is the local game forecast inside Sports Authority Field At Mile High Stadium in Downtown Denver for the 8:30PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with  34% humidity, 5% precipitation, and mild eastern winds at 5 miles per hour.

 

Colts are wearing their matching white jerseys and pants, while the host Broncos are wearing their home orange jerseys, and white pants.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Broncos, and hope Andrew Luck, Coach Chuck Pagano, and the rest of the Colts players and coaching and team support staffs make the home and away sweep tonight in Denver, with a win in front of a prime time audience and to your fans in to start your season Indianapolis.  Continue to stay  Colts Strong and Chuck Strong, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :excited:   :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltsfb:  :coltshorse:  :coltslogo:  :helmet:   :D

The guy I'm playing in fantasy football is trailing me by 7 points, but has Wayne, Hilton, and Montee Ball tonight.  So here's hoping Nicks has a monster game and Ball has 3 or 4 fumbles

haha I'm the exact opposite (see above post).  I'm confident though.  We beat 'em last year and I'm excited to see how Luck has improved over the offseason.

That strategy has failed me numerous times. I always feel great until about 2 hours before work. That's when your mind starts to become alarmed when you realize it's too late for a nap and you feel like gravity has increased by 10x.

    • And because of Hines use, that lead to Pascal's first TD.  2 defenders followed Hines to the flat and left Pascal wide open.  Brissett and the Colts showed good patience and they were ready to take the shots down field when they presented themselves.   You have set a precedence now Chad, you start a thread, the Colts follow your suggestion and it works.  Now, this week Chad, you need to start a thread about the D playing a game for 4 quarters instead of looking very good one half and like a bunch of first year pop Warner players the other half.
    • When is funchess supposed to be back, anyone know???
    • Luck with his higher ceiling probably could get away with INTs, just like Peyton. Brissett, because of a lower ceiling, plays within his limitations without taking too many chances and thus keeps us in games, and if the support comes through in the form of the running game, D and ST, his efficiency will be magnified. If the D comes out flat like the first 2 drives for the Falcons in the second half, Brissett can only shoulder so much, IMO.   That is why, we will be an underrated team even if we continue building our D and OL but we will win more games if we play more complete games in all 3 phases. Ballard will put his money where his mouth is, on building a complete team that is not dependent on the QB, no matter who it is and it will become more important with Brissett.
    • Nothing like providing proof you don't even watch the games.
    • Yah I know you can’t compare them one to one exactly but I think a lot of people either overated luck based on potential or under rate brissett because he wasn’t some stud prospect.  I hope as the season goes on we can bump this thread and update it so we can see how brissett compares to luck.  Obviously I would rather have luck but I don’t think he’s head and shoulders above brissett either. I can’t wait to see how the season plays out either way.
