Hi, Colts fans!   :)  Our Indianapolis Colts move on from their disappointing season opening home loss at LOS (the building) last Sunday, as the Colts are  in Colorado, to play the  Super Bowl 50 Champions Denver Broncos, in both teams 26th all-time regular season meeting between the teams.  Colts also seek to win their first regular season win at the Mile High City in six years.

 

Both the Colts and Broncos have a battle this afternoon of young quarterbacks.  Besides a recovered Andrew Luck ready for game action today after missing most of the 2015 season suffering with a lacerating kidney, and partially torn abdominal muscle, the Broncos will start Trevor Siemien, who was the third-string QB in the Broncos depth chart behind Manning and current Texans starter Brock Osweiler.

 

Both the Broncos and Colts do not have to worry this afternoon the presence of former QB, and future Pro Football Hall Of Famer Peyton Manning and his impact and legacy,  since he subsequentially announced and decided to retire as an active player, after leaving the game as a champion by his and the Broncos winning Super Bowl 50 last February in Santa Clara, CA.

 

Colts defeated the Broncos in their last regular season road win in Denver by the score of 27-13 back on September 26, 2010.  Adam Vinatieri scored two field goals from 38 and 33 yards in the first quarter, Peyton Manning threw three touchdown passes,  two from 23 yards and 5 yards to Austin Collie, and a 9-yarder to Blair White, followed by three PAT's by Vinatieri.

 

Colts also defeated the Broncos in their 2014 AFC Divisional Playoff Game, their last win in Denver, also played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. Colts RB Dan Herron scored a 6-yard touchdown, then Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes,  3 yards to Dwayne Allen, and  15 yards to Hakeem Nicks, following three PAT's, and a 30-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri, to upset the Broncos at their home turf 24-13 back on January 11, 2015.  Colts eventually lost the following Sunday to the Patriots in the AFC Championship "Deflategate' Game, resulting in Tom Brady's current suspension.

 

Indianapolis defeated Denver in their most recent meeting played at LOS back on November 8, 2015. AV kicked the game winner with his 55-yard field goal with 6:13 remaining in the fourth quarter, helping the Colts win 27-24.  That  win earned the Colts the current lead in the all-time series, including two playoffs games, at 13 wins and 12 losses, a rivalry that began when the Broncos defeated the Baltimore Colts 17-6 in both teams first-ever regular season meeting since the 1970 AFL-NFL Merger played at Memorial Stadium back on November 10, 1974.

 

Sunny and clear skies at 85 degrees is the game forecast inside the Sports Authority Field At Mile High Stadium for the 4:25PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with  0% precipitation, 11% humidity, and mild eastern winds at 7 miles per hour.   

 

Colts are wearing the traditional all-white with blue trim helmet, jerseys, and pants, while the host Broncos are wearing their orange helmets and jerseys, and white pants.

 

NO injuries to both the Colts and Broncos, and let's hope Andrew tries to show comeback player of the year potential, as he helps the Colts win their first game of their 2015 regular season away in Denver!  GO COLTS!!!!!   :rock:  :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts::coltshelmet:    :coltslogo:

I do have a weird feeling we will play another close, high scoring game. Even with the potential to get away with a win. Hope Chuck has the players ready to play out of the gate, not another lethargic first half please..

With the still injured D, Luck and co still have the pressure of needing to score on most offensive possessions.

 

Go Colts, please re-energize us for this season!!

Another interesting factoid: Colts have not had a running back rush for at least 100 and more yards in 50 or 51 straight games.

I think @Dustin posted a tweet saying that's the 3rd longest streak in NFL history, with the longest being 55 games.  Kinda sad...

 

We did have 100+ rush yards last year at least once.  Not a single rusher, but as a team

    • I don't think the games under 250 will be due to any lack of skill on Ryan's part.    I believe certain teams matchup very well versus our receivers, and we will see an immediate focus on running the ball.    Combine both of those factors with the reality that JT is the best running back in the league, there are many games where we will just chew clock and take our yards at will. If they can win with Ryan throwing 8 passes, they will do it. 
    • im surprised your so high on ryan.  not that i disagree, just didn't expect it from you. I voted he would get about 4200-4300, mainly becaue i think JT repeats again for about 16-1900 yards. 
    • According to Boomer Esiason Murray is not well liked by his teammates.
    • Your comment about guaranteeing that Matt Ryan will NOT throw for under 250 yards in a single game jumped off the page to me.      So I looked this up before posting here.    Last year, only two quarterbacks threw for more than 5,000 yards.  Brady with just over 5300 yards and Herbert with just over 5000.    For the record, Brady had FIVE games of under 250 yards and Herbert had SIX.   So if those guys had multiple games of under 250, your safest bet is that Matt Ryan will too.   That’s as close to a guarantee as you can get.    Ryan is likely to average roughly 250 a game, maybe a little more.   Which means he’ll have a good number more than 250, and a good number below.   
    • If the offense is more balanced, that will mean more O snaps.  We were 21st in plays per game on O. And we would have been even lower had we not had all the turnovers.  That's pretty darn weak. We were 12th with Rivers. 17th with JB. 5th with Luck.  Having more passing yards does not mean you have to have substantially less running yards.  You can be top 10 in both areas. Buffalo, Dallas, and AZ were.  At the end of the day, most of the SB favs, are good at passing (top 10).  More times than not, that's what it takes.
