Thanks for coming to The Colts Game Day Forum for the final NFL Preseason Game in 2018,  finally  on tonight, Colts Nation!   :default_20smile:   Our Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals play the first of two games in the next 11 days.  

 

Colts are in Cincinnati tonight to play their preseason finale with the Bengals, and with a win, can finish their record at 3-1.

 

All NFL teams traditionally play their fourth and final preseason games, except the Hall-Of-Fame-Game,  in the last Thursday Night in August.

 

Bengals come back up across Interstate 74 northwest when they play the rematch when the results count for the regular season opener on September 9.

 

Colts and the Bengals, will sideline their veteran starters, and save them for play in the upcoming regular season, as tonight most of the veteran reserves and free agent players, and drafted and signed college players not selected in the recent 2018 NFL Draft,  try to advance themselves from the 90-man training camp roster, to impress the coaches and fans, and make the final 53-man regular season roster.

 

Colts, and the rest of the NFL teams later must meet the mandate 53-man regular season roster by 4:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time on September 1.

 

Colts and NFL teams on the following day can staff their 10-man practice squad as early, and after  as 1:00PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

Mostly cloudy skies at 80 degrees, feels like 86 degrees, is the game forecast inside Paul Brown Stadium, for tonight's 7:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 5% precipitation, 70% humidity, and mild northern winds at 5 miles per hour.

 

NO injuries, great luck on the players making the final 53-man roster with these same Bengals on Opening Week 1 on September 9, at the real LOS, and GO COLTS!!!!!  :coltslogo:    :coltshelmet:  :colts::1colts:   :coltslogo:   :rock:

Brissett needed to lead Pascal more there.  Could have been six.

Agreed

“Their starters alone have 11 sacks this preseason.”

    • 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.
