Colts Vs. Patriots Sunday Night Football Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation! Our Indianapolis Colts are in the international spotlight in perhaps the most anticipated game this season, as the Colts host the Super Bowl Champions New England Patriots, since last January's AFC Championship Game.

Andrew Luck reportedly will be ready and start tonight's game for the Colts, which is great news, because he, along with the rest of the Colts players, are in a current six-game regular season and playoff losing streak, and Indianapolis has not won over New England since their 35-34 home win at LOS six years ago back on November 15, 2009.

 

Tonight is the 80th ​all-time meeting between the teams, including 75 regular season games, and 5 postseason games.  New England though leads the series over Indianapolis with 50 games and 29 losses, and the Patriots also have outscored the Colts in the previous 79 games, 1967 points to 1486.  Patriots also lead the series in the postseason 4 games to 1.

Colts Moderating Team including myself, will closely monitor both the Game Chat and the Game Day Thread during tonight's contest. We ask that you demonstrate the example of the same respect and sportsmanship here on the Colts Fan Forum as the players demonstrate on the playing field. We also ask you keep the online conversation fan friendly, and we want to try to demonstrate a positive example over an adverse experience, because children and even grandparents may potentially read our posts and feedback both on tonight's online game chat, and the Colts Vs. Patriots Game Day Thread Here On The Colts Fan Forum.

We have been through the same circumstance here a few seasons ago when Peyton Manning made his return, if not triumph, return to Indianapolis. Colts fans at the real Lucas Oil Stadium were receptive in his return, and the players on the field played in their normal competitiveness, and there was no real hostility.

I was impressed with the decent, respectful, even humourous posts, especially the gifs posted by our online members from that game. I hope our registered users continue posting that same content tonight.

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with field/sideline reporter and interviewer Michele Tafoya, simulcast internationally both on digital television, and in your personal devices on The NFL On NBC Sports, preceded by the Football Night In America Pregame Show, and locally in Indianapolis on WTHR NBC Channel 13, all media seen live on HD.

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

LOS's roof could be open, but at the Colts and the station management discretion, might even be closed for tonight's 8:25PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because clear skies at 48 degrees is the game forecast inside the stadium, along with 0% precipitation, 41% humidity, and very mild southeastern winds at 2 miles per hour.

Visiting Patriots are wearing their white jerseys and silver pants, while the host Colts are wearing their blue jerseys, and white pants.

NO injuries on tonight's game, I hope the Colts continue to stay strong and extend their lead in the AFC South with a win over New England tonight, and GO COLTS!!!!! :cheer:

Patriots officially rule LB Dont'a Hightower (ribs) and DE Trey Flowers (shoulder/knee) to out for Sunday's game vs. Colts.

— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss)

October 18, 2015

 

No Hightower, no Flowers should mean easier to run.

 

Hopefully we see ALOT of Gore/Bradshaw tonight!

I'll say this, if we continue to get no pressure like we have been, Tom is gonna torch us in this game and it won't be pretty. If he gets 3-5 seconds to throw every time, there's very little chance for us in this game. We can stop the run all day. Tom will sit back and get 5-10 yd plays all game and sustain 10-15 play drives that eat up 7-8 min and put up 40+ points. We MUST have some sort of pass rush and of course be solid against the run.

Flowers and Hightower means easier to run the ball, all things aside I hope they get healthy.

Solder is out, might be able to get some sacks/pressure on the left side.

oh man. Was NOT this nervous last night. I guess this morning when I woke up I was just like "woah. We're about to play the Patriots"

Prediction time

 

Colts: Luck won't throw a pick till the fourth quarter

Colts: Moncrief has two scores

Colts: Colts hang within 17

Pats: Run game doesn't work for them

Pats: Brady goes 7/8 on third downs with two tds

Pats: Gronk has both those TD's

 

Final score: New England Patriots 38 Indianapolis Colts 23

I'm gonna hate hate hate losing to them but at this point, if we can hang in there and show some progress, i'll be a BIT satisfied (just as long at the players aren't)

Since Luck is playing I will predict 31-30 Colts. Luck scores late TD on a run. The Patriots have holes in their Defense too. They will score 30 but Luck will put up 31. Look for Mathis to have a strip sack for a fumble as well that will be huge.

Calling it now we will win by at least 10 points everyone has given us no chance to even come close in this game. This is when we play our best ball when no one's gives us a chance. Colts 34 pats 21

I think we will win as well but I have it 31-30. We may be the only 2 on earth that believe we will win haha. I just have a funny feeling because nobody is picking us to win that we will play loose and Luck is due to play great against these guys.

Thanks for the reminder.  Please everyone (including and especially our Pat fan posters) don't post just to express how much you dislike each other or just to get a reaction.  That just devolves the conversation and ain't nobody got time for that!

 

That said GO COLTS! :cheer:  :blueshoe:

I will say this, the patriots beat us everytime one dimensional..Slants over the middle, run after the catch, then they run the ball...We got to stop the slants over the middle or limit the run after the catch...Make Brady beat us deep...

I'll take that. Man, am I pumped for this or what.

McGill is active with Kerr sitting out. I thought Kerr and Anderson were the better interior defensive linemen for pressure. Hope the others can step up to get Brady on the ground.

    • Many on here are over-valuing the value we could get in return.    I think we would get a 4th or possibly a 3rd.    Now we may be able to get a trade for a player that a team wants to get rid of.      
    • "Obsession to finish." That is Frank Reich's motto,  right?* did you like how I through that "right" in there just like Frank, lol.    There's good traits about Nelson. One mentioned by superman above, is that he picks his teammates up almost obsessively. But the only trait that I care about with Nelson, and certainly the rest of the o-line and team for that matter, is that they have an obsession to finish. Nelson has it. He's obviously buying into the organization and what they stand for, and what the coaching staff brings to the table. If he continues having an obsession to finish, specifically with his ability to finish, he is going to dominate this league for many years to come. 
    • I didnt think they would. It would just continue to draw out the saga. NFL really needs too restructure the tag, it can be incredibly unfair
    • 1. Arizona: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State Cardinals grab the best player in the draft. Unless they decide to move on from Rosen, Bosa will be the pick at number one. Pairing him up with Chandler Jones creates a dynamic pass rushing duo. 2. San Francisco: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky Their OLBs are highlighted by Dekoda Watson, Brock Coyle, and Malcolm Smith. Allen is an EDGE player that the 49ers are in desperate need of. Allen is the defensive playmaker they need after an underwhelming performance from Solomon Thomas and with Reuben Foster gone. 3. NY Jets: Quinnen Williams DE Alabama MikeKirsch's comments:The only notable DL under contract for the Jets is Leonard Williams. Adding a second Williams is the best move for the Jets at 3. 4. Oakland: Rashan Gary DE Michigan The Raiders need a better pass rush. If they had a player like Kahlil Mack last year their pass rush would have been better. The Raiders ranked dead last with 13 sacks last year. The Giants, 31st in sacks, had 30. To put that into comparison further, Mack had 12.5 sacks. Gary has the physical tools to play inside or on the edge. 5. Tampa Bay: Jonah Williams OT Alabama With the continued emphasis on the high passing attack with Arians, a solid pass protector will be needed on a regular basis. Williams can play both G and T. 6. NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State The Giants need to address QB sooner than later. Manning is not getting younger and he is not getting better. Manning is still serviceable and Haskins can sit a year under Manning. 7. Jacksonville: Cody Ford OG Oklahoma Jacksonville gave up the 3rd most sacks in the NFL with 53. I'm making this selection under the impression that the Jags acquire Nick Foles. Ford can play both T or G and improve this O-line.  8. Detroit: Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson EDGE and TE are the most pressing needs for Detroit. I expect them to go EDGE here as Ansah is probably gone after an underwhelming season under the franchise tag. 9. Buffalo: Ed Oliver DT Houston With Kyle Williams retiring and Lotuleilei having an average season and will be 30 when the season is over, Bills need to grab a young, promising DT. Once viewed as a potential number one pick in this draft, Oliver is still a very solid player that should be picked in the top 10.  10. Denver: Greedy Williams CB LSU Chris Harris Jr turns 30 in June and Bradley Roby is a free agent. Even if Roby is brought back, Williams would still be a good move for the Broncos to solidify the secondary. A QB is possible here, but I don't expect them to go QB until next year since Flacco still has 2 years on his contract. 11. Cincinnati: Drew Lock QB Missouri Might be a slightly surprising pick here, but I think it's time for the Bengals to start fresh with a new QB. Dalton just hasn't gotten it done for them for the past 8 years. With Dalton turning 32 in October and with 4 winless postseason appearances, new HC Zac Taylor gets a new QB to work with after working with Jared Goff. 12. Green Bay: Jachai Polite DE Florida GB needs to strengthen their pass rush. Polite has explosive pass rush skills with great speed. Clay Matthews is in a decline and it's time to find his replacement. 13. Miami: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma Tannehill has been average for the majority of his career, along with injuries. Miami will look to start fresh at QB with the Heisman winner. I don't think Murray will have any major struggles with his size.  14. Atlanta: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson Even if Grady Jarrett comes back, Wilkins is a solid pick to pair him up with Jarrett. Wilkins was a consistent 4 year starter at Clemson and can become another young defensive force for ATL like Jarrett, Jones, McKinley, and Neal. 15. Washington: Daniel Jones QB Duke Alex Smith may never play another down in the NFL. Some said this about Luck, but Smith's injury is far more severe and turns 35 in May. Jones had a great Senior Bowl by winning MVP and should be able to take over the Washington offense. 16. Carolina: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State Had off the field issues in 2016 when he was dismissed from Michigan State, but had a great senior bowl week and had solid interviews. Carolina needs to replace the future HOF Peppers. Sweat is a good add for the EDGE. 17. Cleveland: Devin White ILB LSU Cleveland's offense had a very good year with Mayfield leading the way. However, their defense was not very good. Browns need to add a defensive playmaker like they did last year with Denzel Ward. White is a 3 down LB that makes this defense better. 18. Minnesota: Greg Little OT Mississippi The Vikings need a solid T to give their $83 million QB a better opportunity. Little is an upgrade to their offensive line.  19. Tennessee: D.K. Metcalf WR Mississippi Titans need another WR opposite Corey Davis for Mariota. Metcalf has incredible size for a WR and is a big play threat. 20. Pittsburgh: Mack Wilson ILB Alabama Steelers need to add an ILB to fill the void of Shazier. Wilson will be a good player alongside Vince Williams. 21. Seattle: Byron Murphy CB Washington Seattle adds another CB to their duo of Flowers and Griffin. Murphy is an aggressive CB with good ball skills that will fit in the slot in the Seattle secondary. 22. Baltimore: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma Ravens need to add a WR for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Crabtree didn't live up to his 3 year/$21 Million contract. John Brown and Willie Snead had decent numbers but can be upgraded. Brown has elite speed and is a dynamic deep threat. 23. Houston: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL with 62. They are in desperate need of solid pass protectors and Taylor will help bring those sacks allowed down. 24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State Gruden replaces Amari Cooper with N'Keal Harry. Gruden gets a big WR (6'3" 216 lb) that has great hands combined with elite acceleration and breakaway speed. 25. Philadelphia: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson Eagles could use a CB as well, but DT is a more pressing need that Lawrence meets. 26. Indianapolis: Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State DL is a big need for the Colts. Jones has rare athletic skills such as range and flexibility. Very good pass rush skills. Run defense needs improvement but is a great athletic DT that can rush the QB. 27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama Gruden gets his second offensive toy with Jacobs. Lynch turns 33 and will be a free agent. With Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington as the only RBs under contract for now, Jacobs is a solid piece to revamp the Raider's rushing attack. 28. LA Chargers: Devin Bush Jr. ILB Michigan DL is also a need, but the Chargers could use more quality LBs. Nwoso had a good finish to the end of the year, but more talent is needed at the position. Bush is on the smaller side at 5'11" 230 lb, but has three down LB skills that are comparable to Devin White. 29. Kansas City: Deandre Baker CB Georgia The Chiefs 31st ranked pass defense needs a solid CB. Baker can come in and be a solid rookie starter for KC. 30. Green Bay: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa The Jimmy Graham $30 Million experiment is not looking to favorably now for GB, and it's time to give Rodgers a solid, young TE. 31. LA Rams: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech Pairing up Ferguson on the D line with Donald is a great move for the Rams. The FBS all-time sack leader (45 sacks) joins the 2-time DPOY that is coming off a 20.5 sack season. 32. New England: Noah Fant TE Iowa While it's possible that Gronkowski comes back for another season, NE has to look towards the future and draft the successor to the often-injured Gronkowski.
