Colts @ Jaguars Game Day Thread

Happy Holidays again and also Happy New Year to everyone here on the Colts Fan Forum! :) But not as entirely happy to all Colts fans today as our Indianapolis Colts conclude their disappointing 2011 NFL regular season, in the beginning of another calendar year in 2012 , and in New Years Day as they are in Northeast Florida to play the Jacksonville Jaguars. :jags: Colts are well rested after playing their last game in Indianapolis ten days ago back on Thursday Night, December 22, and hope to end their season in a florish by winning their third straight game over the Jaguars. A win over Jacksonville today would also mean defeating each of their AFC South rivals in their last three regular season games in a two-week period, have earlier defeated the Tennessee Titans 27-13 on December 18, and later the AFC South Champions Houston Texans 19-16 three nights later, both games played at LOS.

Colts are also competing with the St. Louis Rams for the #1 overall pick in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft in late April. However, a Colts win over the Jaguars, and a Rams loss to the visiting San Francisco 49ers could mean the Rams would instead be awarded the top overall pick instead. In that scenario, Rams might not draft Andrew Luck since they already drafted Sam Bradford in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Jaguars defeated our Colts in the earlier meeting at 17-3 at LOS back on November 13. Colts defense must try to contain Pro Bowler Maurice Jones-Drew again, as he rushed for 114 yards in that game, and is also leading the NFL in rushing with 1,437 yards, despite the Jaguars owning the leagues worst passing offense.

Jaguars are also playing their last game in front of original team owners Wayne and Delores Weaver, who brought the team to Jacksonville in 1995. Shahid Khan will take over ownership of the Jaguars beginning on January 4.

Colts however still leads the all-time regular season series over the Jaguars 15-6 entering today including 7-3 record as the visitor ,a rivalry that started when Indianapolis defeated Jacksonville 41-31 in the Jaguarsinaugural seaon back on December 10, 1995. But the Jaguars also defeated the Colts in their last regular season visit to Jacksonville 31-28 back on October 3, 2010. Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell also has a 3-2 record over the Jaguars, and Jacksonville has yet to sweep a season series over Indianapolis.

Spero Dedes and Steve Beuerlein will announce for The NFL On CBS, seen regionally, primarily in Indiana, Northern Kentucky, both Jackonville and Gainesville, Florida, and here at Indianapolis at WISH CBS 8 live on HD.

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and Will Wolford for the final time this season will also announce the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline reporter Kevin Lee simulcast on Colts flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WHNK Country 97.1FM, and the Colts Radio Network.

Local weather conditions at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida, for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff is great with Clear and Partly Cloudy skies at 70 degrees, with 10% precipitation, 57% humiditiy, and southwest winds at 7 miles per hour.

Visiting Colts will dress in their matching white road jerseys and pants, while the host Jaguars will wear their teal jerseys, and white pants.

My pleasure both starting the Colts game threads, and also participate in-game with the rest of the registered users this season. Colts have an opportunity to end no better than a 3-13 season, and it was unfortunate Peyton Manning's neck injury, and his absence on the field also affected his teammates, his fans, and this seasons won-loss record. Colts even had an opportunity to host their own Super Bowl in Super Bowl XLVI had Peyton and the Colts as a team were also healthy. Interesting to see what the upcoming NFL Draft and the offseason will bring for the Colts before training camp this summer in 2012.

NO injuries and also silly penalties on the field today. Finish the season strong for yourselves and your fans, to both end your season, and begin the New Year in a positive mode, and GO COLTS!!!!! :cheer: :thmsup: :1colts::colts::coltslogo::coltshorse::coltsfb::helmet::blueshoe::D

    • I don't like the pessimism here, our current in-division record isnt great, but if we beat the titans in our head-to-heads, we control our own destiny for the division. The Titan's schedule is just as rough as ours. They play: Bengals (W) Bears (toss up) Colts (toss up) Ravens (probably a L) Colts (toss up) Browns (toss up) Jags (W) Lions (not a gimme. but probably a W) Packers (toss up) Texans (toss up) As far as I am concerned, they are only really heavily favored to win 3 of those games and the rest are toss ups. We can still win this division if we handle our own business.
    • Look no further OP, this is the answer, along with it being the first week of the season and weird things happen in week 1 league-wide. The Jags almost always play us close too, one of those things. We absolutely should beat them when we next play in week 17, but who knows really.....  
    • Looks like the “good old days” of the AFC South.
    • Its interesting to note that those are the teams with notoriously “weaker” organizations.  A year like this will separate the cream from the crap. 
    • Sure it does. just not the crowd noise part. But traveling, sleeping in a strange bed and room, and losing some practice because of travel still have an effect.  Not traveling and sleeping in your own bed should also create less covid related stress for that week too. The noise thing is big, no doubt, but i still see other factors affecting HFA.
