Colts Vs. New York Jets Monday Night Football Game Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans! :) Our Indianapolis Colts are on the international spotlight as they play the New York Jets in their home opener at LOS for ESPN's Monday Night Football. Colts and the New York Jets are playing their first regular season game in Indianapolis in almost six years (December 2009).

Colts already won a playoff game over the New York Jets at LOS, but will try to even their home record there at 2-2 tonight as they will try to win their first-ever regular season home game over the New York Jets, since moving to Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back in August 2008. Colts are also coming from their 27-14 road loss on Opening Sunday at Buffalo, while the New York Jets defeated the Browns 31-10, in their home opener at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Both the Colts and New York Jets are meeting for the 72nd time in the all-time regular and postseason series, including 4 postseason games, a rivalry that began when the New York Jets, with Joe Namath, upset the heavily favored Colts at the time by the score of 16-7 on Super Bowl III played at Miami, Florida, back on January 12, 1969.

N.Y. Jets last defeated the Colts by the score of 35-9 in their regular season meeting played at the new Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, back on October 12, 2012, and also edged our Colts 17-16 during the 2010 AFC Wild Card Playoff Game played at LOS back on January 8, 2011. New York Jets outscored our Colts 52-25 in the two previous games. Colts first win over the New York Jets since the team moved to LOS across the street from the RCA Dome, was the 30-17 victory during the 2009 AFC Championship Game back on January 24, 2010.

New York Jets also defeated the Colts 29-15 on their first meeting played at LOS back on December 27, 2009.

Colts though, will try to seek to win their first-ever regular season home game in Indianapolis over the New York Jets, since moving to Lucas Oil Stadium. Colts last defeated the Jets in Indianapolis 38-31 at the RCA Dome back on November 16, 2003.

New York Jets have also outscored our Colts in the previous meetings by the margin of 62 points, 1474 to 1412, but the Colts lead the overall all-time regular season and post season series by 11 games, 41-30-0, entering Monday Night.

Former Colts center Jeff Saturday, #63, who went to the University Of North Carolina, will be honored at halftime, as he will be permanently enshrined in the Colts Ring Of Honor at LOS. Saturday was also Peyton Manning's primary snapper at the center position during both players time with the Colts. Congratulations and well-deserved, Jeff!

Mike Tirico and former Raiders and Buccaneers Head Coach Jon Gruden are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Lisa Salters, televised internationally on ESPN's Monday Night Football, live on HD.

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

Tonight's game will also be syndicated internationally on the Westwood One Radio Network, with Kevin Harlan and former NFL QB Kurt Warner announcing the radio game commentary, and sideline reporter and interviewer Jim Miller.

LOS's roof may remain closed for the fan's and the public's safety, for the 8:30PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, from the recent bolt incident that injured three Colt's fans back on September 3. Clear skies at 65 degrees is forecast outside around the stadium area though in Downtown Indianapolis, along with 0% precipitation, 57% humidity, and mild northeastern winds at 5 miles per hour.


Visiting New York Jets are wearing their white jerseys, and green pants, on the playing field tonight, while the host Colts are wearing their traditional home blue jerseys, and white pants.


NO injuries, win your first home game of the 2015 NFL regular season in front of your Colts faithful, and also try to win tonight after Jeff Saturday's induction into the Colts Ring Of Honor in LOS, stay Colts Strong, and GO COLTS!!!!! :coltslogo:

Colts bold prediction: We score 2 TDs on defense/special teams

Jets bold prediction: 2 separate Jets players will have 100+ yards receiving tonight

Bold predictions? Alright heres mine (tried to keep it as least biased at possible)


Colts: Dorsett will break out with a 100 yard 1 touchdown game

Colts: Henry Anderson will get a forced fumble on a Jet tonight

Colts: Someone is gonna fumble it on special teams again


Jets: Fitz has a good game. 300+ passing yards

Jets: Revis shuts down TY 

Jets: The Jets struggle to get much of a running game going. 


I dont want to feel grumpy for the rest of the week, so get this win boys. Go Colts!

Thanks LOS. Great intro. Great stuff! I have been saying on here for the last few days 27-20 Colts and that was thinking TY wasn't going to play. It looks like TY may play so we could win by a bigger margin possibly but I will stick to 27-20. Jets have a good Defense so we still probably wont break 30 points but should be able to score somewhere in the 20's. I am thinking Fitz will get picked off once or twice as well which will help us out. Bold prediction: Gore gets over 100 Yards rushing. We haven't had a 100 Yard rusher in 41 straight games. So I figure that is fairly bold.

Ok I'll play....Colts 27 - Jets 10

Good rookie night for Colts:

Anderson 1 sack & 6 tackles

McGill - 1 sack and 3 tackles

Geathers - 1 pick and 3 tackles


4 total sacks

Varga screen for his first TD

Moore & Irving will help keep Jets under 100 running yards.

Turnovers will influence how close this game is.

    • So 2 of their starting WRs are out, and one of the number 2s is questionable.  They are basically down to one healthy starter (Hoagan), a questionable depth guy, and one healthy depth guy. Josh Malone has been signed to the active roster.   Starting RT is out, starting C is questionable.    Gotta feel sorry for Darnold. Not really. Hope we crush him lol.    
    • I agree with the WR statement, not necessarily a high first round pick  Then again, Pittman isn't really a take-the-top-off the defense type of WR like TY is, and Ballard spent a very high second on him.    Reich's offense is supposed to be about disbursing the ball around with plays schemed to assist non-stud pass catchers, more so than the offense we used to have.  But any NFL offense needs playmakers who can do something with the ball once they get it.     Having mid level talented skilled position players is sort of what we've had, and the lack of individual playmaking puts too much pressure on the QB and play caller executing the correct play.  Coaches benefit from having a player who can make two moves and go 60 yards by themselves, and they tend to not be found in mid to late rounds.   Also agreed about CB.  The zone scheme doesn't need a shut down corner like VD.  The scheme does need a 3 tech on the dline, and a better pass rush, so its nice to see the investment of pick 13 into a position that matters with the Buckner acquisition.   Personally, I think the pass rush can be done by committee.  Even great players get gassed.  But there should be one DE along with Buckner that the defense has to account for when he's in the game.  I think that player requires a first round investment.   I've always been less enthused about the need for a stud TE.  I think the plamaking pass catchers should be the WRs and versatile RBs, but to get the kind of TEs the NFL seems to want, I think its going to take a pretty high pick.   And then there is AC's retirement looming.  Always need a 1st rounder for a LT if you want him to start as a rookie, unless dumb luck lets one drop out of tree.
    • I really don't give 2 sheets about Ebron, but it's still all speculation. We don't know what the argument was.   But as I've said before, going from a guy who was our primary red zone target, to only getting 3 targets inside the 10 in 11 games in 2019 is pretty WTH, especially given our problems on O. And aside from his 3 drops in the Oakland game, he was pretty good (0 drops in the Pitt game and 3 games leading up to it) afterwards.    IMO, the writing was on the wall in terms of him not being extended. I don't blame him for going and getting his body taken care of if he knows he's not coming back. It's business.   At Pitt so far, he's got 4 catches for 61 yards, and 3 of those are for 1st downs. He's also had 2 drops.    
    • We need to worry about ourselves in this game. Players need to be smart and focused. No turnovers, no foolish mistakes. If we do that then we’ll be fine. But if we start turning over the ball in our own territory, then it’ll be a long afternoon.    We better be mentally prepared...
