Hi, Colts fans!  :) Our 7-7 Indianapolis Colts are still in the hunt for at least an AFC Wild Card Playoff Spot,  as they are in Oakland, California, to play the 11-3 and AFC West Division leading Oakland Raiders, in the Colts first visit to Oakland in nearly six years.  

 

Interesting game in a showcase of young NFL quarterbacks attempting to thwart their opposing teams defenses, featuring the Colts own Andrew Luck playing opposite the Raider's Andrew Carr.

 

Indianapolis have an opportunity on Saturday afternoon to even the all-time series with Oakland with beach team at eight games apiece, in today's 16th meeting.  Peyton Manning threw the game-clincher with his 7-yard touchdown pass to WR Pierre Garcon, with 7:38 remaining in the fourth quarter, to help the Colts defeat the Raiders 31-19, back on December 26, 2010.

 

Colts have not lost a regular season road game at Oakland in more than 21 years.  Raiders last home over the Colts was a 30-17 at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum back on October 22, 1995. Peyton Manning was still a QB at the University Of Tennessee in Knoxville that year.

 

Raiders still may clinch the AFC West division title on whoever wins the Houston, Kansas City, and/or Pittsburgh win their games this weekend, and at the same time eliminate the Colts this weekend from playoff contention.

 

Jim Nantz and former New York Giants and Moorehead State QB Phil Simms, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Tracy Wolfson, are announcing the live TV game commentary for The NFL On CBS's primary late doubleheader game, seen live on HD in most of the USA, including locally in Indianapolis on WTTV CBS Channel 4.

 

Sunny skies at  51 degrees, feels like 47 degrees is the game forecast inside the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, for the 4:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0% precipitation, 58% humidity, and  northwest winds at 13 miles per hour.

 

My Christmas wish is for the Colts to stay alive for another week, and with help and luck ( the definition of good fortune, not Andrew Luck), Indianapolis survives these last to weeks and through chance earn a playoff spot.

 

NO injuries. let's see our Colts go for their eight win in 2016, defeat the Raider in their Black Hole,  and GO COLTS!!!!!     :):coltslogo:   :1colts:    :colts:  :coltshelmet:   :coltslogo:  :rock:

    • Another great game for Mac Jones 
    • No one has said turnovers weren’t a factor. Literally no one. But feel free to quote a post that said it. It’ll still be there where you last saw it, and you can dust it off with a simple click of the quote…   Why were there turnovers? Did Wentz look at the defense and say “hey, you guys want the ball? Oh, ok. Here you go”?   No.    There were turnovers because the defense knew it was going to be a pass play. Because they knew they could line up and just focus on rushing the QB.    How did they know these things?   It’s not because they’re psychic.    When you don’t put any oil in your car and go 60,000 miles without changing the oil you do have do you blame the bald tires for the rod that shoots through the hood? No.    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. When you let the defense go all in on pass defense of * course they’re eventually going to win and create turnovers.   We went out of our way to ensure that is exactly what would happen. 
    • Yeah the INT Wentz threw when Pittman got PI'd on and was held that a blind man could see, pretty cool for the Bucs  
    • That's fine, but I don't get why you think we needed to run edge runs more if there was success not doing it.  The issue is not that JT was getting stuffed up the middle and Frank failing to call other run plays.  Seems like weird beef to hang up on.   But if you want to take a breath for a moment.  Step back and look.  We scored 31 pts, 41 pts, and 31 pts against very good playoff teams from last year.  I'm not defending every play call...and the forum has gotten way too judgmental on every play....but the offense does not seem to be the unit that's keeping us from having a better record.   We all know about the secondary.  And I was never sold on the idea of situational rotations with one-talent D linemen.  When the pass rushers are in the game, a good O would run.  Defo, Paye, and Dayo are (will be) good players against the run and pass.
