Hi, Colts fans!   :)  A battle of two win teams as our Colts take the 113 mile trip southeast down Interstate 74 to play the Cincinnati Bengals, ifor the first time in three years, in both teams 30th all-time meeting.  Indianapolis leads the all-time series entering today with a 19 win, 10 loss record, including 27 regular season, and two postseason games.


Colts  won the last two games, first defeating the Bengals 26-10 in their last meeting in the AFC Wild Card Playoff Game.  back on January 4, 2015, and their last regular season meeting, shutting out Cincinnati 27-0 back on November 19, 2014.  Both games were played at LOS (the building) with a combined score of  53-10.


Indianapolis also is seeking their first regular season road win in Cincinnati in 12 years, since the Colts  defeated the Bengals by the score of 45-37 in Cincinnati back on November 20, 2005.  Peyton Manning completed 24 of his 40 passes for 365 yards, 3 TD's, and 1 INT in that game.


Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta are announcing the live TV commentary for The NFL On CBS's early regional singleheader game, seen primarily in Ilinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia, and in Indianapolis on WTTV CBS Channel 4, all stations seen live on HD.


Both the Colts and the Bengals will be  exposed to the cold outside elements during their game inside Paul Brown Stadium for their 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because partly cloudy skies  at 42 degrees, feels like 37 degrees is the game forecast, along with  0% precipitation, 60% humidity, and northwest winds at 9 miles per hour.


Head Referee Jerome Boger and his officiating crew are assigned by the NFL to supervise the game action between thre Colts and the Bengals this afternoon at PBS.


NO injuries, Let's see the Colts try to win their third game of the season, end their two game losing streak, and win by more than three points for the first time in their 2017 NFL regular season. Continue to stay Colts Strong, and GO COLTS!!!!!    :rock:   :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltslogo:

Any doubt Andy Dalton has his best game of the season today?

I'm using Dalton in a couple tourneys today on Fanduel. He's a mid risk/high reward on the cheap this week IMO. Probably will get 3 TDs on us. He's better than Bortles, Hoyer, and Kizer, and they were respectable Vs us.

Just throw it away, there.   Records as a sack, but that’s not on the OL


The game plan appears to be for Brissett to physically hit all the defenders and loosen them up.

    • I've been going over Rivers stats this season and when you really look at them deeply, he just was not very good this season.  He feasted on bad teams and against good teams he was terrible.  I'm going to make a topic that does a full breakdown of Rivers performances this season vs winning and losing teams.  It's just a lot of information and I'm not good at making charts on here but I'm still gonna give it a shot because the numbers are very telling and will prove that Rivers was just not very good this season and when we needed him to play big vs good teams he just coldn't get it done.  I'll leave you guys with just a sample of the numbers that I found:   I'm gonna pick a number that I think most would say isn't too  bad of a pass to run ratio.  60-40.  That basically comes out to 30 passes and 20 runs a game.  Our record for whenever Rivers threw 3 passes to 2 runs was 1-5.  The only win was against the lowly Bengals.  Whenever he was below that 60% pass ratio we were 10-1.   The only loss was against the Steelers where Rivers decided that in a game we held a 24-7 lead in the 2nd half, he needed to finish that game throwing 23 passes to 3 runs...    Let's break it down even more.  Let's make it an even 50/50 run vs pass split.  In those scenarios we were 4-6 in games where we even let Rivers throw it 1 more time than we ran it (Bengals & 2 fortunate Texans wins make up 3 of those wins).  Both teams picking in top 6.  Only win against a good team where we threw it more than we passed it was first Titans game.  That means that we finished 7-0 in games where we ran it more than we passed it.   In other words, Rivers was nothing more than a game manager.  He could beat teams like the Bengals, Texans, and Titans on a short week throwing it more than we ran it.  But when we needed him to carry us and beat a good team he just couldn't do it.  Unfortunately, Rivers couldn't recognize that.  He kept trying to prove that he could go out and win us games but the numbers say that he just couldn't get it done.    Sure he completed 68% of his passes but the guy couldn't put the team on his back against good teams.  If he can't humble himself and accept the fact that he is just a game manager that should never throw more than 60% of the time vs good teams then he should not be brought back.
    • Good. This division needs to be a dog fight if the Colts win this division they have an even better chance in the playoffs.    Am I the only one who doesn't want the easiest path to the playoffs? This is good news. 
    • I could care less about Brees tbh. Never really cared for the guy that much. Now when Brady retires I can get behind that!
    • Yup, we're honestly not there yet.  And it's not like Brady is wowing people either.  He threw for 199 yds in their win.  That Bucs has a lot of talent.  We honestly outplayed our expectations.  The Bucs have kind of underperformed.
