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:

    • 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.
