Colts @ Jaguars Game Day Thread

Welcome back for another NFL Game Day Sunday, Colts fans! :) Our Indianapolis Colts are in Jacksonville. Florida, to play the Jaguars, in the battle of winless teams after two weeks. Colts technically have yet to win a game dating back to their AFC Divisional Playoff Game 43-22 loss at New England, 0-4 in their preseason schedule, and losing their first two games so far, at Denver, and last Monday Night at Indianaplolis to the Eagles. Colts are playing with a sense of urgency to win for themselves, the players and coaching staff, Colts management, and fans.

Both the Colts and Jaguars are playing in the 27th all-time regular season meeting, with Indianapolis leading the series with 18 wins and 8 losses, a rivalry that began when the Colts won the first five games beginning with the Jaguars inaugural season, where the Colts won 41-31 also played at then named Jacksonville Municipal Stadium back on December 10, 1995. Colts also have outscored the Jaguars in the previous 26 meeting 647 points, to the Jaguars 505.

Colts are also in a three-game winning streak entering this afternoon over the Jaguars, and have also outscored the Jaguars in those three games 94-23. Colts won 30-10 over the in the regular season finale played at LOS (the building) back on December 29, 2013. Colts RB's Donald Brown and Trent Richardson each scored 1 and 2-yard runs, QB Andrew Luck threw a 7-yard pass play for another TD to Stanford Cardinal teammate and TE Griff Whalen, and kicker Adam Vinatieri added 3 field goals from 23, 26, and 39 yards, and his 3 PAT's completed the Colts scoring.

Philadelphia Phillies and St. Joseph University's TV broadcaster Tom McCarthy, and former NFL defensive back Adam Archuleta, are announcing the live TV game commentary for the early regional doubleheader game for The NFL On CBS, seen mostly in Indiana, Illinois, Northern Florida and Southern Georgia, and in Indianapolis on WISH-TV CBS Channel 8, all stations seen live on HD.

Bob Lamey and Jim Sorgi are also announcing both the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN 1070AM, and WHLK 98.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

Great weather at Northeastern Florida is expected for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because sunny and clear skies at 84 degrees, feels like 82 degrees, is the local forecast inside EverBank Field, along with 51% humidity, 0% precipitation, and mile northern winds at 6 miles per hour.

Colts are wearing their blue jerseys, and white pants, while the host Jaguars are wearing their matching white jerseys and pants.

NO injuries, and hope the Colts stay resilient to achieve their first win in 2014, and leave Jacksonville with win #1, and the Jaguars at 0-3. Stay Colts Strong, and GO COLTS!!!!! :rock::D:1colts::colts::coltsfb::coltshorse:

Luck and the offense have a big day. Colts route the Jaguars.

We darn well better beat them. Because if we lose this game, all hell will break lose and this season starts to look like it's ending already. This is a vastly important game. If this Colts squad is half as good as what the "experts" thought going into 2014, we should blow them out, no contest.

I agree. A win is a win, BUT, we have to win convincingly today

1) for Pep's system to continue to move forward and give the O confidence they can execute it.

2) We're already 2 games behind and this is one of the doorstops of the league. If we want to reach and go far in the playoffs we HAVE to convincingly beat these types of teams every time we play them.

Make no mistake; this is a big game for the players and coaches.

Go Colts! All day, every day!

I think you could say this is a "must win" for our boys if we have hopes for winning the division and making the playoffs. Especially if Houston wins against the Giants today (and all indications are that they will with the way NY has looked so far this year). While crazier things have happened and it's still early, coming back from 0-3 is not something we want to see the Colts try to have to do.

1975 1-4 start to win 9 in a row and win AFC East from the NFL Champion Dolphins.....so we have done it before but hey let's not. That first game of the 75 season was against the Bears and Walter Payton's first game and the Colts held him to 8 yards on the day I believe.

    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
