Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!   :)    An AFC South battle where both teams star players suffered injuries, as out  2-6  Indianapolis Colts travel to play the 3-4 Houston Texans.

 

Both teams have lost their quarterbacks in the past week.  Colts QB Andrew Luck had surgery after the 2016 off-season to repair his right shoulder.  Since then Luck was held out of training camp and from participating in any games because the healing process is still taking longer than expected.  After a brief practice, the Colts decided to place Luck on injured reserve, making him unavaillable for the rest of the 2017 NFL season.

 

Luck recently signed a six-year, $140 year extension, with $87 million guaranteed to stay and play the Colts back on June 29, 2016, and just prior to his surgery, missed one game because of a concussion.

 

Texans will also lose their rising rookie Deshaun Watson, who tore his ACL on a non-contact play during team practice last week, which prematurely ended his season,  Watson already earned and was awarded both AFC Offensive Player Of The Month, and NFL Offensive Rookie of The Month in October, and would have been in the running for the NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year without his torn ACL injury.

 

Colts will also not see Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, left the game after Week 5 with a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg and is out for the season.  Watt also had a previous surgery for a herniated disk, and he was also place on injured reserve in 2016.

 

Jacoby Brissett and Tom Savage will be the starting QB's for both the Colts and the Texans for the 1:05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff from NRG Stadium.

 

Indianapolis still leads the all-time regular season series with 23 wins and 7 losses in today's 31st divisional meeting, but are on a three-game losing streak over Houston, and seek to win the ir first road game at the Texans since the Colts 27-20 road win back on October 2015.

 

NO injuries, go for win #3, and GO COLTS!!!!!   :coltslogo: .   :1colts:     :colts:   :coltslogo:

Go Colts! Lose a competitive game!

 

No seriously, I have made a decision to savor any victories the Colts can scrape from the bottom of the barrel this season. But I won't lose any sleep if they lose out

Tom Savage has never thrown an NFL TD pass. 

 

Let's see how long that lasts today.

 

Go Colts!!

3rd and 10 on opening drive is a good start. 

 

Now let's stop them.

Did that ball make it back to the LOS? Not sure. Could have been intentional grounding.

    • The Colts scored 24, 22, 20, 7, 27 and 24 with Luck. The 7 was in the AFC Championship game with the SB on the line. We were never competitive and the highest Luck scored Vs the Pats (27) was lower than the Pats worst score Vs us (34). Again, Luck was overrated, and he quit on us. The defense was bad, but he didn't hold up his end either.
    • I know.  What seemed like an amazing possible supplemental draft becomes nothing 
    • Luck played the Steelers once, in October 2014. In that game, the Colts defense allowed B. Roethlisberger to throw for 6 TDs and 522 yards. The Colts defense allowed the Steelers to score 51 points. (Luck threw for 3 TDs and 400 yards).   During the Luck era, the Colts played the Patriots in 2012, 2014, 2015 (twice) and 2018. Here are how any points the Colts defense allowed: 59, 43, 42, 45, 34 and 38.   You  are blaming Luck for not winning against the Steelers and Patriots, but it does seem like you are overlooking the other aspects of football. It's a team sport. And when I show how many points the opposing teams have put up, it should be clear that the Colts defense was not up for the challenge. But we can continue to blame Luck.
    • dude played in 6 was it playoff games? Won half of them? Beat a SB winning D in Denver.  The argument that both of you made in your own way and for different reasons was that the Colts roster wasn't good. True story.  Watson is the better NFL QB right now for the same reason Chad Kelly is, they're playing. Beyond that? I'm pretty sure Luck is still upper tier of ability and debating that seems kind of pointless- but he's not playing so pointless is operative to the whole of the conversation.
