Colts @ Vikings Game Day Thread

Hi, Colts fans!   :)   A battle of NFL teams alive in the playoff hunt for the postseason, as our Indianapolis Colts are in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to play the Minnesota Vikings. Colts are playing their first road game in Minnesota for the first time in eight years, and a win by the Colts over the Vikings  on Sunday afternoon,  would both even their season record to 7-7, and also stay in the hunt for at least an AFC Wild Card Playoff spot, in both teams 25th all-time meeting.

 

Indianapolis is  coming from an embarrassing game  they and their fans rather forget  Sunday, as the Houston Texans made a season sweep over the Colts for the first time in their history,  winning 22-17 at LOS (the building) last Sunday.  

 

However, into Sunday's game, the Colts have an advantage over the Vikings in their history between the teams,  Indianapolis is on a current four-game regular season winning streak over Minnesota.  Vikings last defeated the Colts during the regular season 19 years ago,  with their 39-28 win over the Colts, and played at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome back on December 21, 1997.

 

Indianapolis leads the all-time series entering this afternoon with 16 wins and 7 losses, including one postseason game (Colts 24-14 win back in 1968).    Adam Vinatieri kicked the game-winning field goals for the Colts in the last two meetings. AV kicked his 53-yard FG at Indianapolis with eight seconds left in the fourth quarter to help the Colts win 23-20 on September 16, 2012.

 

Vinatieri also kicked the game-winning 47-yard field goal  with three seconds remaining to help the Colts defeat the Vikings by the score of 18-15in their recent road visit, and last road game at the Metrodome, back on September 14, 2008.

 

Also fortunately for this game both the Colts, and Vikings, are also playing inside the the dry comforts, of the  new $1.13 billion  dollar U.S. Bank Stadium in Downtown Minneapolis, at the same site and footprint where the Metrodome stood.  By the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time gametime, the weather forecast outside the U.S. Bank Stadium is  sunny skies at  minus -14 degrees, feels like minus -30 degrees, along with 5% precipitation, 64% humidity, and southwest winds at 6 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries, stay Colts Strong for your seventh win, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!  :rock:  :coltslogo:   :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet::coltslogo:

Thanks LOS. Our team has been so inconsistent all season. I have labeled us an Average team. A team that will probably now go 8-8 or 7-9. We are a team that has a Good/sometimes Very Good QB but a team that has a Bad Defense and questionable play calling = Average team overall. They have a pretty big advantage when it comes to their D.LIne vs our O.Line. It will be interesting to see how Andrew handles their pressure. I am still really not over last week because to me that was a Playoff game and a game we had no business losing but it is what it is.

    • Ballard should be fired.    We have no Oline depth. No Dline depth.  (if Buck or Grove get injured, we have late rounders backing them up, Ben Banagou is still on the roster somehow?) Hole at QB  Our best secondary player is an aging veteran that we signed in FA, behind him is Moore and Rogers ..) Moore probably not gonna be here too much longer, and Rogers Sr is the only quality depth piece there.    We drafted well at safety this year, and he had a quality signing with McLeod (bridge player) Thomas II has played above expectations, and Cross needs some time.    The main problem is there's no depth for the Oline (hole at RG, possible need at LT) Similar problem at DE --> Yannick hasn't been all that great, probably lost the trade overall. Kwity is often injured. Dayo is alright but nothing special yet, Tyquan Lewis is solid but often injured. Turay isn't on the team, Banagou is a bust.    for DT depth we have Cowart and Johnson II ? It's poor, it's very poor when you look at it. We've got some real talent in the starting spots, but when you really look at the roster, to use ballard's own terminology, "the cupboards are bare"    
    • Nothing is new here. The Oline has been struggling.  Yeah our offensive line has regressed since it's top level play.  But to say "after 2 games we r seeing the issue with this team is" doesn't make sense because they've improved, at least from what i've seen, since saturday has been here.    We have a rookie at LT, and a 7th round backup at RG. --> with almost no good depth, outside of an aging dennis kelly. 
    • we need more depth at DT. If we lost Buckner or Grover we'd be in trouble. 
    • Think Williams wrapped up the Heisman tonite,  USC is sitting pretty going into Pac 12 title game. The D has forced turnovers all season long, and club is #1 in nation in turnover differential by a large margin (#28 closer to #2 then #2 is to USC).
