Colts @ Ravens Saturday Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts Nation.   :)  Our 3-11 Indianapolis Colts will try to play spoilers this afternoon, as they are in Baltimore in their last scheduled regular season road game, to play the 8-6 Baltimore Ravens.  Our Colts will still try to thwart the Ravens, from earning a road win from Baltimore, and also avoid the Ravens  from qualifying in the 2017 NFL Playoffs. Both the Colts and Ravens also lead off Week 16, the next-to-the-week, of the  2017 NFL Regular Season.

 

Colts defeated Baltimore by the score of 20-13,  in both teams last meeting played at LOS (the building),  back on October 5, 2014.  Andrew Luck completed 32 of his 49 passes for  312 yards, one touchdown pass to Dwayne Allen from 6 yards, and Luck scored on a 13-yard TD run.  Adam Vinitieri completed the completed the game scoring for the Colts with his 38-yard field goal in the first quarter,, and his 2 PAT's.

 

Colts have also been decimated by injuries by many veteran players and rookies since the preseason, leading and contributing to their current 3-11 record.

 

Colts  also seeks to win their first regular season game at Baltimore in more than eight years.  Matt Stover kicked his game-winning 25 yard field goal, with 7:02 remaining in the fourth quarter,  to help Indianapolis edge Baltimore 17-15 at M&T Bank Stadium back on November 22, 2009.

 

Indianapolis also leads Baltimore in today's 15th all-time meeting with a 10 win and 4 loss record, including 11 previous regular season games and 3 prior postseason games, since the Colts defeated Ravens 26-21, in both teams first meeting, played at the RCA Dome back on October 13, 1996.

 

Our Colts are on track unfortunately to suffer their worst regular season record since the 2011 Indianapolis Colts finished with  their 2-14 record, the primary shortcoming when Peyton Manning was placed on injured reserved that year with his neck surgeries,  Dan Orlovsky, Curtis Painter, and Kerry Collins had various starts that season in place of Peyton at QB.

 

Colts both will try to avoid today finishing with a three-win NFLregular season, since consecutive 3-13 seasons back on 1997 and 1998.

 

This year, Jacoby Brisset took most of the snaps behind center after being acquired by the Patriots before the start of the regular season, with Scott Tolzien as his  backup.  Incumbent Andrew Luck reportedly is rehabilitating from his shoulder surgery in Europe.  Beside the current 2017 NFL regular season, Andrew Luck has missed 26 of the last 48 games, both  preseason and regular season, dating back to the 2015 NFL season.

 

Greg Gumbel and former NFL QB Trent Green, are announcing the live TV game commentary, along with sideline reporter and interviewer Jamie Ehrdahl, simulcast on both The NFL On CBS, and international cable on the NFL Network. However, the Colts @ Ravens Saturday Afternoon NFL Game will be seen over the air on the local teams markets,  both at WJZ CBS Channel 13 in Baltimore, and locally  in Indianapolis on WTTV CBS Channel 4. live on HD.

 

A mix of showers and rain 61 degrees, feels like 58 degrees,  is the live game forecast inside M&T Bank Stadium, for the 4:35PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with  45% precipitation, 71% humidity, and  southwest winds at 18 miles per hour.

 

I still want to try to shed some light, and remind all of you,  that this will always be the holiday season at this time of year in December, and I personally wish everyone,  from Nadine The Colts Fan forum Administrator, on  to the other moderators, and especially to our registered users and members here on the Official Indianapolis Colts Fan (Friendly) Forum, the best of your Merry Christmas holidays, with your close family members, relatives, and close friends!  :)

 

NO injuries, continue to stay Colts Strong, try to both win your fourth game of the 2017 regular season this afternoon, and also spoil the Ravens postseason chances in Baltimore,  and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!    :coltslogo:  :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :rock:

Thanks again for opening up the thread, LOS!  Merry Christmas to you and your family.

 

Even though I don't think we have a prayer...hoping to win this one.

 

Hmm... the second pick in the NFL draft sure would be nice, though...

Here is hoping for an excellent showing by our many young inexperienced players as a catalyst to next year.........but also for a Colts' loss for both the high draft pick and the knowedge that it puts the final nail in the Pagano era. 

Merry Christmas to all. Lets hope for the #2 pick in the draft as the ultimate stocking stuffer.

That Colts run defense is great early on. 

 

We cannot play pass defense for crap though.

There cant be a worse tackling defense than the Colts.

 

Our D-Line is stout, and plays top notch NFL caliber Defense. Our interior linebackers over pursue, and miss every angle imaginable. We have no instinct at ILB, and only come up big when we guess correctly.

Had the Colts been worth a crap this season then this would have been a great Primetime game. The scheduling Gods could not have been any nicer to the Colts. No one to blame but us for this season.

If TY puts a double-move on Carr then it's a TD. 

 

Just saying.

Kick is blocked!

 

Wow!

 

Peyton Manning likes to drink Budweiser after big wins. 

 

I will counter his Budweiser with some Smirnoff Peppermint Twist (Limited Edition), and I will have mine in the first quarter, thank you.

    • Some of the debating over the "meaning" of the polls are kinda funny. The overwhelming majority do not feel JB is the answer. Call him average or below average, really doesn't matter. Chad Kelly getting a shot doesn't really matter either. Neither does JB starting till we find "the guy"....   Bottom line is most folks aren't happy and want something different and that was the million dollar question. How it all happens is another another question (actually multiple questions) altogether. 
    • Who needs to go to any other site when we have you, great work 
    • You nailed it!!!!!!!!!!!! This is what is happening!!!!!!!!!!! Great post. Yes, we have to try and keep trying to do what is required. The team has regressed this year and its because of JB. This injury thing with JB is a bunch of crap along with less then desired WR's. Please Mr. Ersay do what has to be done. The team will never go anywhere with this guy. 
    • On the first bolded, I absolutely agree. He lost so much from last year (OL, WR, RB, and coach), and his D is a lot worse. They are in catch up mode a lot this year, and asking him to do way to much.   On the comments about him making a mistake, I disagree. He's shown what he can do with decent talent, and with a decent OC (Yost), last year. Most reports said he was weighing a transfer to get back to Yost. At best, he'd just be replicating the season he had last year, which was very good. Would it raise his stock, maybe... but he's starting to trend middle of the 1st and either the 3rd or 4th QB taken. If he stayed in school, and he had a good year, best he is going to do is be second (after Lawrence), and he's lost out on a paid year. It's kind of a wash IMO if he does go middle first this year.
