Colts Vs. Buccaneers Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Thanks for coming back for NFL Game Day, Colts Nation!   :)     A battle of 5-5 teams this afternoon, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with #1 2015 Overall Draft Pick Jameis Winston,  make their  first  visit to the City Of Indianapolis, to pay a regular season game in eight seasons to play our AFC South Division leading  Colts. Buccaneers are also  the Colts last NFC South interdivisonal opponent  in the 2015 NFL regular season, and the Bucs are playing their first-ever road game at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building).

 

Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck is making his fourth start in relief of Andrew Luck, and already possesses a 3-0 record from their upset win at Atlanta last Sunday.

 

Both Indianapolis  and Tampa Bay are in their 13th all time regular season meeting, with the Colts leading the series 7 games to 5, and have also outscored the Bucs in the previous 12 games 311 points to 265 points.  

 

Buccaneers RB LaGarette Blount's 35-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, broke a 17-17 tie in the third quarter, and was the game-winning score, for Tampa Bay's 24-17 win over Indianapolis in both teams last meeting, played  at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, on Monday Night Football, back on October 3, 2011.

 

An undefeated and 5-0 Indianapolis Colts team defeated the 3-2 Buccaneers in Tampa Bay's last visit to Indianapolis in 2007. Peyton Manning thew two touchdowns passes, 10-yards to Dallas Clark, and 9-yards to Reggie Wayne. Colts RB Kenton Keith also added a 7-yard touchdown run, and Adam Vinetieri added both his two field goals from 27 and 35 yards, and his two PAT's,  to secure the Colts final score at 33-14, played at the RCA Dome, back on October, 7, 2007.

 

Richard Stockton and former NFL linebacker and current TV broadcaster Matt Millen, along with sideline/field reporter and interviewer Peter Schrager, are announcing the live TV game commentary, along for The NFL On FOX, seen primarily in Indiana and Florida, and locally on WXIN FOX Channel 59, live on HD.  

 

Bob Lamey, our 'Voice Of The Colts,' and former Colts QB Jim Sorgi, are also announcing the live radio game play-by-play and analysis, along with sideline/field reporter and interviewer Matt Taylor, simulcast on flagship stations WFNI ESPN SportsRadio 1070AM, and WLHK The Hank Country 98.1FM, and the Colts/Vectren Radio Network.

 

LOS's roof will be closed, for this afternoon's 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because outside the stadium area in Downtown Indianapolis, will be a mix of partly cloudy and clear skies at 46 degrees, feels like 41 degrees, along with 0% precipitation, 55% humidity, and northeastern winds at 10 miles per hour.  

 

Visiting Buccaneers are wearing their pewter helmets, white jerseys, and pewter pants, while the host Colts are wearing their traditional white helmets, blue jerseys, and white pants. 

 

NO injuries, go over.500, and win your sixth straight, and stay both in the hunt in the AFC South and the NFL playoffs, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :cheer:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :blueshoe:  :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :D

Contain RB Doug Martin. Winston is enough to worry about. Can't afford a 200 yard day. This should be a close one. But I hope we run away with it.

14+ point losses are blowouts in the NFL to me. Colts have had wins of 14+ points 14 times since Luck was drafted out of his 61 starts including playoffs....23 percent of his starts

Yeah but how about the numerous comebacks we have had to pull off with Andrew, very nerve racking. We haven't won a game this year by more than 7 points.

45 degrees fahrenheit, 0% chance of precipitation at kickoff - OPEN THAT ROOF!

It's closed. Believe 50 at kickoff is the cut off, but yeah, why not. Football weather.

Lol Herremans is still benched. Glad it seems like we're keeping the interior OL intact against McCoy. Looks like Good gets the nod at right tackle.

Luck, Dorsett, Castonzo, Werner.  That's 4 first round picks that are inactive.

 

The league's oldest starting QB meets the league's youngest.  Let's get the W and keep Hasselbeck undefeated on the year!

    • Dallas won't let him go.  They traded a 1st round pick for him and even if he isn't worth it, Dallas would still resign him
    • Sorry 2006, but you get 4 Pinocchios :-). Lawrence's true freshman year was a lot better than Luck's redshirt freshman year, and sophomore years are shaping up to be very similar, which Lawrence has at least 2 games to go (the numbers include bowls for both)   Keep in mind Lawrence is only a true Soph, and Luck took a redshirt (so he had a year advantage in learning the system, and the stats below).   Here's their comparative stats.   Frosh Year Lawrence 65%, 3280 yards, 8.3 avg, 30/4 TD/INT ratio, 157.6 PR Luck (red shirt) 56%, 2575, 8.9 avg, 13/4, 143.5 PR   Soph Year (Lawrence's soph year isn't done yet) Lawrence 69%, 2870 yards, 9.1 avg, 30/8, 171.5 PR Luck 70%, 3338 yards, 9.0 avg, 32/8, 170 PR
    • Right there with you brother. They’re the last team I’d want to see in the playoffs... 
    • Stats farther below   Quick Summary - Buc's O vs Colts D Passing - The Bucs have the 4th most passing yards per game in the league while we're the 11th best defending the pass. Winston is a bit hobbled, gets sacked a lot, and throws the most INTs in the league. They have a bottom 10 OL, and will be missing their starting RG. Their best WR is a bit hobbled. Rushing - They are not the best rushing team (22nd), and Winston shouldn't be much of a running threat either with his knee.    Quick Summary - Buc's D vs Colts O Passing - One the worst passing Ds (31st) vs one of the worst passing Os (26th). TB blitzs more than most teams in the NFL, yet aren't very successful in pressuring the QB and average in INTs. It's really all about containing Suh. While not starters, TB has hobbled #2 rotational DBs. Will we see Campbell back and will he torch a very bad group of DBs? Rushing - 4th best rushing O meets 2nd best rushing D. If we rush well tomorrow, I'll be surprised given they are already good, and will likely do everything they can to make JB beat them. I'd hate to see Mack get hurt trying to come back quickly.   The Bottom Line Indy should win the game regardless of injuries. TB is near the worst passing D in the league, and our guys will be open. The only question is will JB see them. Given we should be limited in the running game, it's another great opportunity (3rd in 3 weeks) for JB to crush a horrible pass D. On D, Winston and their #1 WR are a bit hobbled, and we should not have too much problem keeping him in check even without Moore. I could see both Sack and INT success tomorrow.    Prediction - I expect the Colts D to hold TB to 24 or under, and could see our guys getting some picks and sacks. I have zero idea what to expect on O. JB should have a career day.. but..., should have done better the last two weeks vs bad pass Ds. If Mack and/or the other RBs have success tomorrow, then WOW vs a very good run D.    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Top Five Bolded Blue' Bottom Five Bolded Red Injured Starters Bolded Green   Buc's Offense 5th in total yards per game  4th in passing yards per game  22nd in total rushing yards per game  4th in total points per game  13th in Red Zone Offense %  32nd best in INTs thrown  24th best in sacks taken  Out - Cappa G, Miller WR, Logan RB Questionable  -  Banged up  - Godwin WR (shin) - was FP, Winston QB (knee) - was FP VS Colts Defense 13th in total yards per game allowed  11th in passing yards allowed  9th in rushing yards allowed  11th in points per game allowed  9th in Red Zone Defense %  18th best in INTs  17th best in sacks  26th in blitz % (23.3%) 18th in QB hurry %  17th in total QB pressure % (22.2%) Out - Moore CB/N,  Questionable  - Hooker S (Foot), Ya-Sin (ankle) Banged up  -      Buc's Defense 17th in total yards per game allowed  31st in passing yards allowed  2nd in rushing yards allowed  29th in points per game allowed  13th in Red Zone Defense %  16th best in INTs  14th best in sacks  2nd in blitz % (43.3%) 29th in QB hurry %  25th in total QB pressure (21.5%) Out - Nelson OLB Questionable  - Dean CB (shoulder) - was FP, Steward DB (knee) - was FP Banged up  - Pierre-Paul OLB (knee) - was LP VS Colts Offense 19th in total yards per game  26th in passing yards per game  4th in total rushing yards per game  17th in total points per game  8th in Red Zone Offense %  16th best in INTs thrown  10th best in sacks taken  Out - Hilton WR Questionable  - Banged up  - Mack RB (hand) - was FP, Alie-Cox TE (thumb) was FP, Campbell WR (hand) was FP,       
    • Great news I'd rather have Hooper for the other tight end. With Cox also around, we wouldn't need to draft a tight end this year or probably next. I wonder how early is too early to extend Leonard and Nelson - it will probably get more expensive every year.
