Colts @ Falcons Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation!   :)  Our  4-5 and AFC South division leading Indianapolis Colts are coming from a scheduled and well-deserved and timed bye week from the long 2015 NFL regular season, and will try to maintain their lead in the AFC South Division as they visit the Atlanta Falcons to play a regular season game there for the first time in 2007.  


Rod Chudzinski is in his second game as the Colts offensive coordinator since relieving Pep Hamilton, and will also try to help and apply the West Coast Offense in  Matt Hasselbeck's third start as the Colt's starting QB. 


Andrew Luck did travel to be involved with the team in Atlanta, but is projected to return to game action by December 27, as he is on active rehabilitation from his lacerated kidney and his torn abdominal muscle.  


Colts will try to perform better on the field against the Falcons, than their last meeting played at LOS.  Jerraud Powers 6-yard interception return, and  Adam Vinitieri's PAT, was the only Colt's scoring for their 31-7 loss to Atlanta back on November 6, 2011.  Falcons QB Matt Ryan outplayed our Colts by throwing 3 touchdown passes, 1-yard to Tony Gonzalez, and two long TD's from 50 yards, and 80 yards to Julio Jones. Michael Turner also added a 1-yard TD run for Atlanta, and Matt Bryant kicked a 20-yard FG in the fourth quarter, along with his four PAT's.


Indianapolis however, defeated Atlanta in their last visit to the Georgia Dome back on November 22, 2007. Colts QB Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes, 23-yards to WR Reggie Wayne, 8-yards to WR Dallas Clark,  and 5-yards to TE Ben Utecht. Joseph Addai also added a 4-yard rushing TD, and Adam Vinatieri added his 24-yard field goal, along with his four PAT's to secre their 31-13 win, back on November 22, 2007.


Indianapolis leads the all-time regular season series over Atlanta, with their record of 13 wins and 2 losses after 15 meetings. Colts/Falcons rivalry started  then Baltimore Colts defeated the Atlanta Falcons 19-7 in both teams first-ever regular season meeting in the Falcons inaugural season in the NFL. Colts also outscored the Falcons 408 points to 230 points after the 15 previous meetings. 


Colts also won the first 10 games of the series over the Falcons before Atlanta finally won their first game in Indianapolis in 1998.  Falcons QB Chris Chandler threw a 2-yard TD pass to Terrance Mathis to break up a 21-21 tie in the third quarter, and it held as the only score in the second half, as the 11-2 Falcons edged the 2-11 Colts  in the Hoosier Dome back on December 6, 1998.


Greg Gumbel, and former NFL QB Trent Green are announcing the live TV game commentary for the NFL On CBS's early regional single header game, televised regionally, and locally on WTTV CBS Channel 4, live on HD.


Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former Colts, N.Y. Giants, and Wisconsin Badger QB Jim Sorgi, also with sideline/field reporter and interviewer Matt Taylorare also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, simulcast on flagship stations  WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK Hank 97.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.


Visiting Colts are wearing their white helmets, jerseys, and pants, while the host Falcons are wearing their black helmets, red jerseys, and white pants.


Although the game is being played comfortably indoors in the Georgia Dome, Sunny and clear skies at 46 degrees, feels like 39 degrees, is the game forecast outside the stadium area in Downtown Atlanta, along with 0% precipitation, 48% humidity, and northwestern winds at 15 miles per hour, for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff.


Both the Colts and the Falcons players, their coaching and team support staffs, along with the rest of the NFL teams, may continue to voluntarily wear authentic NFL camoflage designed team apparel, both on the playing field, and in their sidelinesto support both support the NFL's 'Salute To Service' campaign to recognize our US military personnel, active and retired, as we also recognize Military Appreciation Month throughout November.
